The Sexiest Beards In Music

Why hello there, gentlemen!

Muscles are great, but sexy facial hair–from beards to shadows to goatees–can make the difference between a guy staying in the friend zone or being best friends 4eva with benefits. Musicians, in particular, understand this, or maybe they just like a nice frame for their singing holes. Either way, we’ve done some heavy investigation on the sexiest beads in the music industry. You’re very welcome.
