10 Of Our Favorite Stars With Swagged Out Beards

From scruff to beards, let these brothas inspire you to rock facial hair this No-Shave November.

A shift in temperature marks the beginning of beard season. Barbershops from the Boogie Down Bronx to the iconic blocks in H-Town, and all the way to the Hollywood sign in Los Angeles, will be shaping up fresh tapers, low cut fades, and perfectly trimmed beards because, after all, it's the ultimate cuffing accessory. 

Plus, it is that time of year when people skip shaving to participate in "No-Shave November," aka "Movember,"—an initiative to bring awareness to men's health issues. You can donate, and the proceeds will be used to address conditions such as prostate and testicular cancer as well as mental health.

So, whether you prefer yours to take a traditional approach or yearn to peacock in the crowd, there's enough love and appreciation to go around because beards are back, baby!

Still, rocking facial hair is a hard skill, so there are no five o'clock shadows here. If you know, you know.
