Beards grace the music scene left, right and centre. Whether it’s Five Finger Death Punch, Let Live or The Wonder Years, the trend started five years ago and since has been an essential up-keep for all our favourite musicians. From a subtle tash to extravagant bush, the team have come up with a list of top ten band members who have made the cut when it comes to prominent facial hair. But have some come a whisker too far? You decide.

The Best Groomed Moustache – Jamie Lenman

If you are to mention Jamie Lenman’s name to most people the first thing you’re likely to think of (after the initial Reuben connotations) is his immaculate handlebar moustache. There are very few people who can get away with a moustache like this and not look overly creepy. But Jamie pulls of the groomed look to a tee. [divider]

The Best Pre-Pubescent Beard – Henry Selley (I Divide)

When it comes to beards Henry Selley has vast potential. Unfortunately due to issues during puberty, it appears to have stunted it’s true ability to grow. We’d love nothing more than to see the guitarist flourish into adulthood. The team are keeping their fingers crossed for him to regain his manly status in the near future.


The Best Strawberry Blonde Beard – Ross McNae (Twin Atlantic)

There are very few people who win man-points for having strawberry blonde hair. Fortunately Ross from Twin Atlantic is one of them. Having been away from the music-scene for the past three years, the bassist has reminded us of the power of the unruly hue in a bushy yet manageable manner. If the next album isn’t as memorable as Ross’ beard, then maybe it’s time to shave it off.


The Best Beard And Hair Combo – Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters)

Dave Grohl has been growing his beard for longer than half the people on our list have been alive and it seems that time has perfected the growth. Having worked with Nirvana, Foo Fighters, Them Crooked Vultures and Tenacious D there seems very little Dave can’t do. If every man could grow their hair like Dave then the world would be a better place. [divider]

The Best Ginger Beard – Matty Mullins (Memphis May Fire)

You may well need sunglasses when you look at Matty Mullins hair but it’s rare to find a ginger with hair as enviable as his. With hair as vibrant as his colourful personality we only hope that other gingers can take a shade out of his book. [divider]

The Best Scottish Beard – Simon Neil (Biffy Clyro)

Our second Scottish entry proves their must be something in the water with front man Simon Neil’s beard being as recognisable as his iconic tracks. It’s not Simon’s hair on his chin we regularly get to see, the vocalist has been known to flaunt the hair on envy inch of his body… [divider]

The Best Maintained Facial Hair – Dani Winter-Bates (Bury Tomorrow)

Dani may not have a fully fledged beard but there’s no denying that the stubble is perfectly groomed. Perhaps it runs in the family with his brother Davyd sporting a similar level of facial hair. Whatever Winter-Bates genes are producing this, we’d like to bottle it and sell it to all men. [divider]

The Best Unruly Beard – Lee Tobin (Feed The Rhino)

Lee’s beard (like his hair) is usually dripping with sweat as he screams his lungs out towards a crowd. His wire like unruly hair is one of the beards on this list we’d refrain from running our fingers through. [divider]

The Best Yeti Style Beard – Jona Weinhofen (I Killed The Prom Queen)

Since focusing all his efforts on I Killed The Prom Queen, Jona Weinhofen has re-carpeted his face. Boisterous, brisk and bearish, Weinhofen has taken beards to a whole new level. As much as we love the new addition, we can’t help but feel it’s a way of saving money on his central heating bills. [divider]

The Best Jesus Beard – Max Helyer (You Me At Six)

If we were to restyle Max and dress him in a robe, socks and sandals you could definitely mistake him for a modern-day Jesus. A more mature look for the guitarist, the grown-up do has made the team question whether he’s had a mishap with PVA glue on a hairdressers floor or whether he’s managed to grow it all himself? Max let us have a tug on your beard and we’ll find out for sure. [divider]

The Best Wannabe In A Band Beard – Chris Hines (Hit The Floor)

Our honorary entry comes from Hit The Floor’s very own editor. The team believe that Chris’ facial hair hides his true sorrow for not being a part of I Divide. But don’t sorry Chris, you still have a special place in our hearts.
