The best & worst celebrity facial hair
Creepiest look: Michael Cera
Baby faces and mustaches do not mix. Keep this in mind when considering your choice of facial hair. And please -- for everyone's sake -- avoid this look at all costs.
Most in need of a trim: James McAvoy
If you have light colored facial hair, grow it in full or not at all. A goatee or beard with light, sparse hair will make a 30 year old look 20. James, might we suggest this tool and these tips?
Least likely to be taken seriously: Ashton Kutcher
Facial hair doesn't make the man, but it sure can break him. If you tend to grow a thin mustache, you need to anchor it with a full beard, or you'll come off looking like a teenager trying to pass for his older brother.
Least likely to grow a full beard ... ever: Sidney Crosby
When it comes to facial hair, knowing your limits is crucial. Some of us simply cannot -- or should not -- grow a beard without weird patches of skin showing through. This, unfortunately, means you, Mr. Crosby. Here are a few suggestions for the NHL captain of the Pittsburgh Penguins.
Most likely stuck in the '70s: Morgan Spurlock
If you actually decide to sport a handlebar mustache, you'd better be someone with the chops to pull it off (e.g. pro wrestler, action hero, big game hunter, biker from The Village People, etc.). We're not too sure documentarian cuts it.
Most likely to 'act a fool': Ludacris
Rappers can get away with a lot in terms of style, but Ludacris' laser-sharp, hot-rod-flame sideburns from back in 2006 were a look truly befitting his name.
Least likely to be 'winning': Charlie Sheen
When growing sideburns, subtlety is key. Too long or too bushy and you'll look like you're stuck in a time warp or like you're a crazy person. Or in Mr. Sheen's case, both.
Most likely to be mistaken for a gunslinger: Viggo Mortensen
Bigger is not always better in the world of grooming. As a rule, don't grow a mustache that's wider than the corners of your mouth. Anything bigger will dominate your look and distract from the real you.
Most likely to start a drum circle: Brad Pitt
In style, there are very few absolute rules. However, we can safely say that "Thou Shalt Not Bead Thy Facial Hair" is one of them. Or twist it. Luckily Mr. Pitt has since moved on to less "Pirates-of-the-Caribbean-Holiday" looks.
Worst repeat offender: Scott Pollard
This two-pronged pointy chin thing (we're not aware of a name for this look) is just one of many poor facial hair decisions Mr. Pollard has made over the years, including a handlebar mustache and misshapen goatees. Lucky for the retired NBA player, it's nothing a razor (and some shave oil and cream) can't fix.
