Beard or No Beard? You Be the Judge of These 19 Stars
Whether it's neatly trimmed peach fuzz or long burly whiskers, a beard has the power to make or break a celebrity's image. Several Hollywood guys have tried out the scruff, but not all of them can carry the masculine style.
Some have given up the razors for a worthy cause, like No-Shave November, while others have chosen to simply toughen up their signature smooth looks. No matter what the reasoning behind the groomed facial hair may be, we have to admit that there are some men who stole our hearts with the additional scruff, while there are others who are at their best when showing off their bare face. You be the judge, and decide if you prefer these stars with a beard or without, in our gallery below.
