The Hottest Mustached Hunks
Christopher Ehlers READ TIME: 13 MIN.
Last week, the New York Times published an article about the renaissance of the mustache and how the sexy trend has been ballooning in popularity over the last few years.
"The mustache," it article states, is "capable of evoking everything from rugged masculinity to whimsical irony to earnest fatherly cheer. Once the domain of the creeper, porn star, countercultural icon, or out-of-fashion uncle, the mustache is becoming just another option for facial hair." The pandemic may have exacerbated the trend, but there's no denying the moment where suddenly mustaches were looked at as drop-dead sexy by an even wider swath of the population: The release of "Top Gun: Maverick" last May. One look at Miles Teller, mustached and shirtless and dancing on the beach, caused people to wonder how they or their significant others would look with a little facial hair.
From the streets to the silver screen, it's clear that mustaches are back in a big way. Here are some of the sexiest men with mustaches:
While he sported just about every facial hairstyle while on "This is Us," we're slightly partial to the mustache, which he debuted butt-ass naked in the show's first episode.
There is not a single thing this man could do to his face that would make him anything less than walking sex.
Classic and refined, if Idris Elba can look sexy in "Cats," he can look sexy with a little facial hair.
Michael B. Jordan
Something tells us that this man will always be one of the sexiest on the planet, with or without facial hair.
Although this 40-year-old British actor rose to worldwide stardom as a smooth-faced "Superman" in 2007, Cavill's recent mustache phase was like, well, kryptonite.
While Teller obviously played a key role in the mustache craze taking hold on younger populations over the last year, we have a feeling his rock-hard body also had something to do with that.
Given how much skin Beckham has shown off over the years, it's a wonder that we're talking about his facial hair at all, but here we are.
This "Euphoria" breakout star couldn't look bad if he tried, and while we think he looks a bit better clean shaven, we wouldn't toss him out of bed for having a little facial hair.
This Emmy, Tony, and Olivier Award-nominated multi-hyphenate looks like a complete snack with a little bit of facial hair, and we can't wait to see the openly gay star burn up the screen in this winter's musical adaptation of "The Color Purple."
The Weeknd has already gone through more changes to his appearance than some artists achieve in their entire lives. While his current look on HBO's "The Idol" features more of a goatee, his mustached look has us seeing blinding lights.
This Disney star turned heartthrob daddy would look great with or without any facial hair, but, we have to say, the hair has catapulted him into a new dimension of sexy.
While he was already beloved for his turns in "Looking" and "Tales of the City," Bartlett – and his mustache – broke through in a big way due to 2021's "The White Lotus," for which he rightly took home an Emmy award.
