The right facial hair can take a man from 0 to 100 in no time flat. Drake grew his beard and turned haters into believers with his “glo up.” (See above picture.) From goatees and mustaches to full-fledged beards, let’s take a look at 15 Hollywood hotties who look better with facial hair.


Champagne Papi grew that beard out and made a lot of us thirsty with his new found whip appeal. He even managed to get some private kisses from the greatest athlete in the world right now, Serena Williams. If Aubrey Graham knows what’s good for him, he will keep that beard around for the long haul.

Idris Elba

Few women would turn down Idris Elba with or without a beard, but he looks rather nice rocking the salt and pepper look nowadays. The handsome Brit can always and forever get it.

Michael Ealy

For the already gorgeous Michael Ealy, just a little facial hair takes him to the next level. With those beautiful eyes and that lovely beard, Ealy really owns his grown and sexiness.

Justin Timberlake

We’ve seen Justin Timberlake go from squeaky clean Mickey Mouse Club kid to NSYNC’s bare-faced hottie, but the times, they are changing. The “Mirrors” singer has moved past the fresh face and has stepped up his facial hair game. I think we can all agree that it’s a really good look.


John Legend

John Legend is killing the game right now. The “All of Me” singer is talented, an energetic activist, funny, an Academy-Award winner, and seems to adore his lovely wife, Chrissy Teigen. And did I mention that he rocks a beard in all the right ways? Keep doing your thing, John!


Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson

Dwayne Johnson always looks good, but when you add a nice little goatee in the mix, we can all really smell what The Rock is cooking. Nah mean?

Omari Hardwick

Omari Hardwick gives us life on Power and on pretty much everything else we’ve seen him in. There’s no denying that Mr. Hardwick is a cutie who has that beard situation on lock.


Rapping. Acting. Activism. Goatees. Beards. There’s nothing that Common can’t do well. Common’s facial hair is so much a part of his identity that few of us can ever remember seeing him without it. If it’s not broke, don’t fix it, Common.

Ice Cube and O’Shea Jackson Jr.

The father-son duo are rocking some of the best facial hair in Black Hollywood. Cube’s goatee has been essential to his image over the course of his prolific career. And his son O’Shea is looking all kinds of nice with that little beard and five o’clock shadow. Hey, boo!


Jay Ellis

Ellis has been staying quiet and building in Hollywood for more than a decade. With the end of his stint as  Bryce “Blue” Westbrook on The Game, Ellis is taking that sexy beard and smile over to Issa Rae’s new HBO show, Insecure. We can’t wait to see more of his fine face, and facial hair, on the small screen.
