We offer you to take a critical look at this men’s trend (and at your bearded partner) and not immediately refuse a banal gift in the form of shaving accessories.
If the word “barber shop” appeared in the lexicon of your partner, then it is deep and for a long time – everyone grows beards today, both singers, and princes, and old and young. We do not urge you to count the money and time spent on caring for the hairy part of the face, but we suggest thinking about whether he really needs a beard so much (even if it almost does not annoy you)? Our photo digest proves that facial hair is a very insidious thing that can add sexuality to its owner, and completely deprive it.
NO: the last time (at least recorded by photographers) the future king grew a beard ten years ago, and we understand him. Bearded Ulyam is not saved even by a luxurious head of hair by today’s standards. Beard-“box” – wide vegetation, tightly covering the entire area of the chin and turning into sideburns – should play on brutality and emphasize the power of its owner, but in the case of the Duke of Cambridge takes time out. William the bearded man looks like a wonderfully cute cozy “cat” (not the most appropriate association for the future king).
YES: Prince Harry, most likely, having grown a beard, succumbed to the fashion trend, but it did not hurt his image and visual at all. Harry is younger than his brother and is not too burdened by the official protocol (and family ties so far), while the oval of his face allows him to wear almost any type of beard, and the red hair gives the necessary dose of cuteness to the facial vegetation. With age, the color of the hairs will not change for the better, and Harry will most likely shave, but for now he can forget about the razor with a clear conscience.
NO: recall how the star of the erotic saga about 50 shades of gray looked without a beard, now you can only be nostalgic at the screen. Jamie has been wearing a beard for a long time in his life. One can understand the desire of the actor and model to dissociate themselves from the obsessive role of supermacho, but the classic beard is too straightforward a means to achieve the goal. Jamie with a beard is a venerable Irish uncle, raising his three daughters in integrity and rigor. We agree, but, sir, what are you doing in Hollywood then?
YES: an actor shaves smoothly only for the sake of roles, usually preferring a slight unshaven. Without vegetation, Danila looks younger, but it doesn’t seem to bother him. We admit that we are too, so we approve.
YES: the news that Jon Snow shaved his beard and even with a mustache a couple of years ago blew up social networks – without a hairy entourage, the actor’s face immediately lost both charm and attractiveness for fans. “He was macho, but it’s not clear who he became,” is the mildest comment that followed this action. Harington needed a victim for a reason – he cut his hair and shaved for the sake of a role in a theatrical production. However, the Whale does not want to take any more risks yet, since then such decisive actions have not been repeated.
NO: the actor should not so diligently grow a beard-a “box”, which seems to flatten the already not too elongated oval of the face and makes Bradley look like a gnome. We would advise the actor to limit himself to a reasonable option of modest stubble.
YES: we forgive the actor his full beard, not because it suits him very much (although admittedly, it adds tolerance and humility to the face), but because Jared likes to play with style and “shave-grow” is a familiar thing for him. For example, in the fall of 2017, the frontman of the band 30 Seconds to Mars famously dealt with vegetation almost online, posting a beardless selfie on Instagram. We are waiting for the next step!
NO: the desire of the creator of Tesla to disguise the folds that have lost their tone and elasticity and add masculinity to the face of this nedoroda under the definition of “island” does not justify. Still, sometimes nothing is better than something. (Read: Amazing May, or Why Elon Musk’s mom is cooler than he is)
Norwegian Crown Prince Haakon
YES: with a beard, the Crown Prince looks both prettier and more personable (would you agree that the “naked” version bears a resemblance to the Hollywood metrosexual lovelace?). But it is especially impressive that Haakon himself treats the image of a bearded man calmly, and if possible, he is not averse to joking, as he did, for example, on the anniversary of his own parents, appearing first with a beard, and sitting down at the table without it (we read and watch “Crown Prince Haakon: why the future king of Norway is our hero”).
NO: comparing the frankly beardless Leonardo with the bearded one is not entirely correct – for a long time the actor has become akin to a goatee, and his face without vegetation immediately refers to the “Titanic” and the actor’s youth (remember the images from “The Aviator” and “The Wolf of Wall Street”, duplicating the same childish face of Leo). DiCaprio is the owner of a classic baby-face with a round oval and soft cheeks, and the goatee plays on his side, giving masculinity and adding charisma (and at the same time stretching his face). But a thick beard a la prophet definitely does not suit the actor.
YES (but with a condition): if you want to remember the “chief psychopath of Hollywood” without a beard, watch “Dunker” as one of the last works where he appears clean-shaven. Hardy prefers at least stubble, but most often a full beard (“Hollywood” as in “Taboo” or “duck tail” as in “Sharp visors”). The actor has large facial features, especially a nose and plump lips, and a beard helps to successfully mask this not always appropriate sensuality. The only thing I would like to advise Tom is to monitor the condition and length of vegetation (the option in the photo is definitely not an example to follow).
NO: George Clooney is one of the few who appears mostly clean-shaven at social events. In fact, his beard does not spoil him at all: with it, Clooney looks moderately courageous and very personable, but, alas, quite for his age (he will turn 58 in May). But the 20-year age difference with his wife and the status of a “young” father oblige not to grow old not only with the heart. Clooney is quite successful without a beard.
YES: without guile, David Beckham is good with and without a beard. Just shaved cheeks and pomaded hair remained in such a past (more precisely, in Europe, his native England and Spain, where the footballer played in the 90s and early 2000s) that it is indecent to compare these “before” and “after”. Today, Beckham prefers to wear thick stubble with precise length control. The effect of rough and at the same time stylish masculinity is obvious.
NO: another football legend, the Argentine striker Leo Messi, on the contrary, made the wrong choice, settling on the option with vegetation. Messi’s beard, although well-groomed, lengthens an already elongated face and, moreover, dissonates in color with the natural hair color (but a couple of years ago, the Argentine was wearing platinum blonde at all!). Judge for yourself, looking at the photo, can you tell that the footballer is only 33?
YES: Thor is a good example of how a beard can only make a man more beautiful. Courageous, charismatic, brutal, sexy – all synonyms about a bearded Australian. It is also significant that without the traditional “Tor” beard, fans do not even recognize the actor, which is probably why he does not shave.
NO: we also advise Ryan Gosling to give up the beard – it not only adds volume to the face and makes it wider, but changes it beyond recognition. Some ratings consistently recognize Gosling as the sexiest bearded actor on the planet, but think honestly, with such lush hairiness, he looks more like a Canadian industrialist of the middle of the last century than the limit of women’s dreams.
NO: clear and categorical. Tom Hiddleston, who let go not only his beard, but also his hair (in this guise he first appeared in October at the premiere of “Thor: Ragnarok”) is one of the most unsuccessful hair style of 2017. The actor is clearly not indifferent to facial hair: he could be seen with both a “wedge” and a “Van Dyke” beard, but it’s not easy for him to get along with it. So the last option will forgive Hiddleston so much that I want to immediately give him a plaid plaid with a pipe and sit him in a rocking chair, read English newspapers. Summary: shave and get a haircut immediately.
NO: the actor has an elongated face and, moreover, an elongated chin, which the typical “duck tail” makes even more noticeable and sharper. The beard turns Ryan into a nerd, and the glasses (we look at the actor’s Instagram) only worsen the situation.
NO: the hermit’s full beard changes the appearance of the cute boy Andy so much that he is unrecognizable. The actor himself enjoys his hair, calling it a “cashmere plaid”, but the fans are not thrilled. Vegetation does not suit the actor at all, even if he looks indecently young without it.
NO: there is an opinion that Fassbender with a beard, which he, without recognizing barbershops, cuts himself, is so sexy that all women just go crazy (including, apparently, his wife Alicia Vikander, who tolerates this outrage). We do not share the enthusiasm and believe that the patchy, reddish and generally indeterminate growth on the face loses the smoothness of the cheeks and chin.
NO: the actor’s vegetation in the lower part of the face does not have a tendency to grow length, it is light, rare, and moreover curly. McConaughey tries to keep up with his colleagues on the shop floor, or maybe he’s just lazy, but both options are unforgivable. Shaving is more to his face: it makes him look younger and adds that ironic impudence for which we love Matthew.
YES: experiments with Pattinson’s appearance are somewhat similar to the beauty performances of his ex-girlfriend Kristen Stewart – bright and memorable (for example, shaving his bald head, which did not decorate the actor). The beard is generally beneficial for him: it smoothes the angularity of the lower part of the face and masks thin lips.
NO: Harry Potter’s decision to let his beard grow was obviously wrong – it literally ate half of his face, and the red shade came into clear discord with the dark hair. It turned out ridiculous and funny (if it wasn’t so sad) – we advise the actor to correct this mistake as soon as possible.
YES: affectation of hipsterism and the style “from the gateway” are surprisingly harmonious for the maturing Timberlake, and the beard fits well into this ensemble. She adds age and status to Justin, because despite the fact that the singer is 40, once he shaves, and we have a vociferous boy from N’Sync in front of us, where does that fit?
YES: in fact, the actor feels good both with and without a beard. But there is still a visible plus: Jake has a pronounced massive chin, and a beard-box perfectly smoothes it and corrects the oval of the face to perfect. With vegetation, the actor’s appearance is more severe, but without it it is sexier.
NO: the Oscar winner in 2017 (“Best Actor”) surprised everyone by appearing on the red carpet of the award fairly overgrown, and not only the facial hair, but also the hair was in obvious disarray. Including because of the appearance, and not only because of the role of a depressive character in the Oscar-winning drama “Manchester by the Sea”, the actor was dubbed “sad Casey”. Most likely, the transformation of Ben’s younger brother was required for another creative project, because six months later he shaved. And he did the right thing: the brutal facial features peculiar to Afflecks – high powerful cheekbones and a manly chin – there is no need to hide.
NO: as for the older brother, his beard does not decorate either, turning him into a peacefully aging Hollywood producer. We want to remember (and see!) Affleck is handsome A.J. Frost from “Armageddon”, saving Liv Tyler and the whole planet, but he himself prefers to remain in the image of Tony Mendes (“Operation Argo”, 2012) and is not going to shave, but it’s a pity.
YES: Kutcher actively hid his age with a beard when he was married to Demi Moore – the age difference between them was 15 years, and Ashton himself was only 25 at the time. The habit has strengthened, and now the actor, the husband of Mila Kunis and the happy father of two children, walks with three-day stubble on his cheeks and sometimes makes out a goatee. We don’t mind, but it doesn’t add to his age.
YES: recently, Penelope Cruz’s husband has been busy with environmental and film projects, so he simply has no time to shave. But the actor is quite suited to this careless half-centimeter stubble on his face (sometimes gray hair only adds to the Spaniard’s charm), so why not?
no: the days of smooth shaven for Brad Pitt are by and large far behind, now the actor prefers light unshaven and parumillimeter stubble. Not a bad choice, considering that Pitt is actively turning gray, and the exuberant facial hair is not his case at all. The “goatee” with a smooth transition into a bushy mustache makes Brad a modern copy of the monk-wanderer.
NO: it seems that Johnny wanted to get a version of the “sparrow” beard (we recall the image of Jack Sparrow – a beard splitting into two strands), but something went wrong. Obviously, the actor belongs to the genetic type of men with little facial hair, but it is a well-known fact that most of all you want what you are deprived of. We advise you to leave the experiments and enjoy accepting yourself as you are (or take an example from George Clooney at worst).
NO: Jim Carrey demonstrates the perfect example of a Garibaldi beard, named after the famous Italian Giuseppe Garibaldi. Such a beard is lush, long (up to 20 cm), with a rounded base and smoothly connecting with a mustache. The actor is over 50 today, and in accordance with his age, he can afford such an ornament (especially, admittedly, the beard looks very neat). But look how dashing and well done Kerry looks without a beard: would you believe that both photos were taken in 2017? That’s the same thing.
NO: Cruz wore different types of beards, but none suits him as well as a smooth shave that reveals his trademark smile. Yes, we want to see Ethan Hunt that way, even at 57.
NO: the facial hair of Keanu Reeves is a bizarre mix of the most exotic and beautiful types of beards (shave off the mustache – it will be Klingon, and thin the chin – it will turn out “Franz Joseph”). In fact, the shape of Keanu’s beard is determined by genetic hair growth, but if he brought it to a more well-groomed appearance, it would look better. In general, the bearded John Wick confuses with despondency and hidden sadness, so we advise him to refresh himself a little by shaving.
