The best grooming game—i.e. a good haircut, some tended-to scruff, and hydrated skin—can make a huge difference in how a man looks. And if you ignore all three, well, you won't look like a DGAF rebel as much as an intensely hungover, decade-older version of yourself. In order to motivate you to visit the barber regularly or just change up your routine once in a while, we're bringing you a recap of the best grooming moves of the week.
Zachary Quinto Buzz-n-'Stache
With this thick upper lip warmer, Quinto enters the hall of terrific mustaches, and pairing it with a shaved head is a nice contrast. The glasses and sweater-collared shirt combo make it every so slightly like a creepy uncle, but worn with a T-shirt and jeans this summer and he's got the ultimate cool guy facial hair look on his hands.
Chris Evans's Scruffy Red Carpet Beard
Evans consistently has a killer beard, and this is no different. Usually he's a little more trimmed, but we're likely the slightly unkempt growth he's sporting here. Emphasis on slightly — anything more unruly would be questionable.
Brad Pitt's Salt and Pepper Goatee
While we're usually in the anti-goatee camp, Brad has already proven his ability to revive old trends. What makes this work is the fact that he keeps it so trim and the fact that it's gray, making it a subtle facial hair swerve.
Riz Ahmed's Everyman Go-To
The Star Wars actor was spotted rocking a variation on what we call the The Handsome Dad — a little bit longer on top and towards the front with gentle tapering on the back and sides. The key here is to make sure it's not too sharp, it looks better slightly undone and relaxed. The 5 o'clock shadow scruff is a nice touch.
Snoop Dogg's All Natural Gray
No narcissism here — Snoop, who's 45 years old, showed off some gray at an event this week. There's something to be said for a man owning his grays as a reward for a life well-lived.
RIP to a Legend
This week we had to say goodbye to a dear friend, a man who had razor sharp wit and, let's not forget, a great head of hair.
