To Beard or Not To Beard

Newsflash, if you haven’t noticed there’s quite a few guys walking around with beards. That’s because these face-tickling food traps are back in fashion - however, the big question on everyones lips right now is (no, not Labour or Conservative…) to grow a beard or look like a 10 year old forever? Well, beards don’t suit everyone so to give you a little food for thought (not the type of food you find in your beard a few weeks later 😷) I have compiled a list of celeb Top Beards and Chop Beards for your viewing pleasure. 

Jared Leto | Sam Squire UK Male fashion & lifestyle blogger

I don’t know if it’s the roll neck or the blonde hair and lack of beard but Leto looks way too much like Karl Lagerfeld. Rocker of beard and bun, Jared should have definitely opted to keep the facial hair, I mean, surely it’s time the Joker diversified? 

Ryan Reynolds | Sam Squire UK Male fashion & lifestyle blogger

I am quite aware of the lambasting from the female gender I will get for ever thinking of criticising Ryan Reynolds…but seriously that beard ain’t right - he usually rocks the casual or dapper look with ease and a bit of stubble, the beard just looks like he should be dad-dancing to the YMCA at a family wedding. 

Jamie Dornan | Sam Squire UK Male fashion & lifestyle blogger

What a beard, some people, like Dornan simply need to rock a beard. Without, he sort of looks like a slightly scruffy design intern (you know I speak truths) - the beard makes him look like a super dapper man, heck Christian Grey definitely shouldn't have a baby face 👶🏽

Channing Tatum | Sam Squire UK male fashion & lifestyle blogger

The usually fresh faced Channing Tatum has rocked a bit of facial hair off and on…in my opinion it’s definitely not a Top Beard - it’s super 90’s and just doesn't look great. However, ladies - you’re very welcome for the pictures of him, I know how much it must mean to you! 

So what do you think? Are you a beard fan or lover of a smooth face…or can you just not even grow a beard? Let me know in the comments below! 👋
