While we have always had great men like Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu, Wole Soyinka, Abraham Lincoln, Leonardo da Vinci and even Jesus Christ rocking several variations of a full beard.
Never before in the history of men’s style have we seen the beard become a well established fashion statement like it has in the last couple of years!
Now everyone, their father and grandfather has a beard…
It’s worthy to note that style forecasters predicted the bearded fad would be gone in 2016 with men reverting to the clean shaven look. In the last year alone Mashable predicted that, “Beards are over,” and Vice boldly declared “Beards Aren’t Cool Anymore,”
But here we are, it’s almost the end of 2017 and team beard gang is still going very strong! Matter of fact according to a recent Australian study conducted with 9,000 women, they find men with beards more attractive.
All this has given rise to beard grooming industry with products like beard oil, moisturizers and growth serums for beards!
So beloved in honour of the sexiness of #BeardGang that1960chick.com has put together a list of 31 of Africa’s sexiest bearded celebrities! From Congo to South Africa to Nigeria, from 20 something year olds to 80 year olds…yeah you read that right…80 YEAR OLDS!!!!
Don’t say we don’t look out for every demographic!
Ladies, Moms & Grand mas….if you love a man with facial hair…get in here! You might need an ice cold drink for the thirst that is surely to come…
