Happy Movember! November is known as "mustache season," as men grow out their mustaches to raise awareness about men's health issues and support prostate cancer research. So in honor of the month of scruff, we're checking out some of our favorite facially hairy celebrity eye candy. But while we love a good mustache, they aren't for everyone. So weigh in: are these famous fellas your mustache crush or just mustache meh?
Quite a few of our favorite starlets have developed an affinity for scruffy men. While some have just a slight stubble and others have more of a lumberjack look, one thing remains constant: these guys look good. Test your bearded-hunk knowledge by guessing who they're linked to!
The last time Jake Gyllenhaal appeared on Conan, he was sporting a full-length beard, just like Conan. The two share funny stories of the brotherhood they have felt because of their facial hair.
A gentleman going by the name of "Beardpick" recently uploaded a video of himself sticking over 2,700 toothpicks in his beard in order to try the toothpick challenge. I did a little looking, and there are also videos up of guys putting toothpicks in their hair. Is this a new thing with men? Because it seems like there's a whole YouTube subgenre of dudes who have a lot of tiny sticks and some very patient friends. Watch the video above and tell me whether you think this was a good use of Mr. Beardpick's time.
Beardy dudes tend to wear their facial hair as a badge of honor. If you love a hirsute man, why not give a gift that appeals to his beard pride? Start him off with a record from posthardcore legends Lungfish, whose singer's beard makes ZZ Top's look like peach fuzz. Go with a tee featuring mustaches ($12), dapper dudes ($23), or a beard is beautiful message ($20). Wrap things up with a romantic card ($3–$4), button set ($5), or a mustachioed card case ($4). Finally, for the man who's ready to go clean-shaven, a handmade wooden shaving set ($150) is perhaps the ultimate splurge.
Care deeply about a man who has ceased shaving his facial hair in honor of No Shave November or Movember, if you're Aussie or growing a mustache?
Then why not soften him up with this MCMC Fragrances Dude No. 1 All-Natural Beard Oil ($65)? He'll be much less scruffy, and even better, he'll be redolent of coriander (or cilantro, depending on what people in your area call it), peppercorn, and cedarwood. It sounds kind of like some sort of fancy sachet from Pier 1, but in an undeniably sexy kind of way.
Just in time for National Beard Month in November, a new study found that 54 percent of women prefer hirsute men. Whatever type of facial hair is your favorite — play Pop's beard faceoff if you really have a thing for them — tell us what you think of these hairy situations.

The Patrick Mohr show at German Fashion Week put expected gender appearances in a hairy predicament today. Some models walked the runway topless, but it was the lack of hair on their heads, replaced by hair on their faces, that caught the most attention.
Perhaps it's the bald heads set off with this wispy facial hair — which might not look so good on a man either — that makes the look unsettling. When French artist Jeanne Mordoj wore a beard out to bars in Paris, she got some positive feedback: many stared, but some men hit on her, intrigued by the unexpected hair on her face. She even felt more feminine, saying: "When I put on my beard, I feel my femininity so strongly, maybe even more than without it. I'll miss it."
Jeanne wanted to learn about the things women hide, like hair anywhere but on their heads, and found that a woman wearing a beard is both captivating and revolting. Do you think this runway show proves the same thing?
The beard may have a controversial place in American history, but cupcakes have never been anything but fluffy circles of sweet love. They are impossible to hate! Now that beards have made their way back into pop culture's heart, there's plenty of room for both beards and cupcakes, or Dudes With Beards Eating Cupcakes.
