The Shadow Beard – Hollywood’s Sexiest Stubble

The Shadow Beard-Hollywood's Sexiest Stubble

Are you looking for stubble beards? Look no further! Find this season’s hottest stubble beard styles featured on your favorite celebrities.

Stubble beards used to represent an unkempt man who was either too lazy or didn’t have time to shave.  It used to be called the five-o-clock shadow because many men began to exhibit beard regrowth by the end of the day.

Today the stubble beard is a style choice that many young men have adopted.  With today’s modern beard trimmers, the stubble beard can be manipulated into virtually any shape including the classic beard styles like the full beard, the Balbo beard, and the goatee.

This slideshow represents a variety of stubble beard styles.  Be sure to check out a few of our favorites such as Taylor Lautner’s Balbo stubble beard, Hugh Jackman’s wolverine beard with stubble, and Tom Hardy’s shaved head with a stubble beard.

Whether laziness or pure genius, these men look great with their masculine stubbled chins.  Check out our votes for who wears the shadow beard the best.
