Five beards men should wear this year

Here are some of the year’s hottest celebrity beards that we recommend you to wear.


August 20, 2014

Men, take note. 2014 is the year to go bold with your beard. The trend pendulum has swung from a clean look to big thick beards this season.

Some may argue that we have reached ‘peak beard’. But whether you keep it trimmed or unkempt, stubble can never go out of style for us.

Here are some of the year’s hottest celebrity beards that we recommend you to wear.

George Clooney



The Hollywood star has maintained a bearded salt-and-pepper look that several men have tried to imitate. With his modern and sophisticated look, he has become a beard trendsetter for the season.

Fawad Khan



The Pakistani actor, who is earning his spurs across the border, sports a beard that has upped his style quotient by a mile. In his Bollywood debut Khoobsurat, Fawad dons a trimmed beard, which elevates the royalty of the character he is depicting. The beard enhances his facial features, so anyone with a similar face cut, should opt for this look.

Zac Efron



From being clean shaved to bearded, the young actor keeps evolving his look. For a man in his mid 20s, this is the perfect look to flaunt at a day in with your buddies or day out with your loved one. Follow suit, now!

Aditya Roy Kapur



The heartthrob of Aashiqui 2 fame has maintained a beard for his upcoming film Daawat-e-Ishq, in which he will be playing the role of a Lucknawi chef. Aditya owns the look effortlessly and, we believe, so can you.

Ali Zafar



The actor-singer looks debonair in a duck tail beard style. Ali is a fashion icon for his fans from both sides of the border and we think that what adds to its pizzazz is his long hair. Highly recommended for someone who wishes to experiment with his look this season!

My...my how far have we come the WEST has now decided that beards are cool, before that if you had a beard then they considered you a member of a terrorist group. But when the Anglo-Saxon white male grows a beard it is considered a sexy high-fashion look. Why do we always allow ghoras to dictate fashion?
