8 of The Best Facial in Pop History

1. Abraham Lincoln
Before Honest Abe came around, the White House was pretty devoid of beard and stache.
2. Charlie Chaplin
Charlie Chaplin dug the toothbrush style mustache for its comical appearance—and also because it didn’t hide his many facial expressions.
3. Salvador Dali
Salvador Dali’s paintings epitomized the surrealist movement. And his quirky persona matched his obscure art, his look was defined by his waxed, twisted upward mustache, Once when asked about the mustache, he said “Since I don’t smoke, I decided to grow a mustache – it’s better for my health.”
4. Elvis Presley
Elvis Presley made sideburns popular again during the “greaser era” by defining the rebellious style and look. As Elvis’ fame (and waistband) grew, so did his facial hair. Since his death, legions of Las Vegas impersonators have paid homage to the Elvis burns—both old and new, real and fake.
5. ZZ Top
Hair of the ‘80s can best be described with one word: big. And for Billy Gibbons and Dusty Hill, frontmen of the rock band ZZ Top, their beards were no exception. (In one of the greatest examples of irony ever, the name of the band’s mostly clean-shaven drummer is… Frank Beard.)
6. Tom Selleck
 In his heyday as Magnum, P.I., Selleck sported probably the smoothest stache in history. But if you watch In & Out or Season 6 of Friends you miss out on this wonderful stache.
7. Hugh Jackman (as Wolverine)
This is the second time he is mentioned in one of my list, so you know he’s kind of a big deal.
8. Ron Swanson
Ron Swanson (played by Nick Offerman on the NBC comedy Parks and Recreation) in amidst a sea of over-the-top hipster beards, Swanson sports a clean-cut stache that has been known to store steak particles for weeks. His cranky character even has a philosophy about facial hair, thanks to the “Ron Swanson Pyramid of Greatness” he revealed during Season 3. (“Facial Hair – Full, thick and square. Nothing sculpted. If you have to sculpt it, that probably means you can’t grow it.”)

About veggiescruff

You may be wondering what the hell VeggieScruff means? Well my last name is Turnipseed that leads to the nickname Veggie, which I’ve had for years. The scruff part didn’t come till years later with I started to develop an admiration for beards and guys with them. I also grew a love for beer and as the years passed I began experimenting and trying new different beers. But the one thing that has always been present in my life was music, ever since I was a kid. Most of my friends even refer to me as a music-snob, I think it’s meant to enduring or at least that how I’m taking it. So basically a bearded guy will always gets my attention. Then if said bearded guy were drinking a microbrew or craft beer then I’d be intrigued. But if said dude with beer was listening to really awesome music… well then you’d be reading this blog, that or be on the best date ever. So feel free to follow along or leave, the title only consists of just some of my main interest but I’m also a Printmaker and Designer so some of those topics will be scattered about and probably a few random rants too. My posts may not be relevant or even safe for work. But I will always try to be honest, entertaining and even hopefully informative from time to time, if I feel like it.
