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?
Justin Timberlake took the stage at the Consumer Electronics Show in Vegas today, perhaps an unlikely forum for the pop star. But it was Justin's appearance that made us do a double take. JT, who moonlights as a MySpace investor, was sporting a low-tech accessory: a full beard. From Justin's *NSYNC days to his acting gigs, we're used to seeing him with nothing more than the occasional scruff. And he's not the only typically clean-shaven celeb to hide his recognizable face under some facial hair. Here are 10 hot men who have done the same.
Each Movember men all across the country grow out their mustaches for 30 days to raise awareness and funds to help find a cure for prostate and testicular cancer. What better way to celebrate Movember than to share some of our favorite mustached men of all time? Whether you're into classic film or classic rock, we've got you covered with these 12 mustached men.
Happy Movember! November has been dubbed "mustache season" to raise awareness about men's health issues and support prostate cancer research. So in honor of the many month of 'staches, we thought we'd ogle some of our favorite facial-hairy celebrity eye candy. But while we love a good mustache, they aren't for everyone. So tell us, are these hotties better looking with a mustache or clean cut?
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!
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.
For dudes, November is not just the eleventh month of the year, it's Movember (as in "Mo" being Australian slang for mustache). Participating men start at the beginning of the month clean-shaven and grow in mustaches over the course of the next 30 days.
While most of you said you don't love a man in a mustache, maybe you'll change your mind when you hear the whole Movember movement is for a good cause. The Movember Foundation is a nonprofit that helps raise funds and raise awareness of men's health issues, specifically cancer. Last year, over 255,000 people raised $40 million across the world. Impressed? Check out these photos of guys from Movember's past rocking some pretty impressive 'staches:

Some people are just born to rock a 'stache — like Tom Selleck, Wilford Brimley, and Clark Gable, for instance. But then there are the rest of us, who might find that facial hair simply doesn't work. (Especially us ladies.) That's where 'Stachetastic ($1) comes into play. Upload a photo, then choose from about 40 hairy enhancements for the fun of it. Like most apps of the alter-yourself type, this one's silly yet addictive.
While I wouldn't spend more than a dollar for it, you'll get a good giggle out of adding multiple 'staches to your mug, with easy-to-maneuver graphics inspired by the likes of Magnum, P.I., Charlie Chaplin, Hulk Hogan, John Travolta, and George Michael. You can even deck yourself out with a pirate patch and aviator sunglasses for a badass finish. According to my poll, most of you think that beards on a guy are OK depending upon the type, so perhaps you could use this app as a way to discover how someone would look with a little facial hair.
