Name That Naked Upper Lip

120114_no-mustache-Keith-Hernandez

You probably couldn’t put your finger on it at first, but a there was something a bit different about a few of your coworkers in the office this morning…

That’s right, they finally shaved that mustache they’d been growing last month for Movember. And to celebrate the bazaaro-world moment of a freshly removed stache, we’re challenging you to figure out which of the following famously mustachioed upper lips have been shorn to nakedness.

So, step right up and play a little game we like to call, “Name. That. Naked. Upper. Lip.”»

Follicle Chronicle: Brad Pitt on Screen

101614_brad-pitt-grooming-16

With this weekend’s release of Fury, Brad Pitt is back on the big screen again. (Hunting Nazis, again.)

And this time he’s sporting a pretty slick razor-sharp coif. Which reminded us of the many different ways his follicles have been molded, shorn or left shaggy over the past three decades. It’s an impressive kaleidoscope of strong cheekbones and scruff—and a few looks you might actually want to try at home.

So, let’s take a look back at Mr. Pitt’s greatest on-screen grooming moments...»

Follicle Chronicle: Tom Hanks on Screen

091114_Tom-hanks-forrest-gump To commemorate the 20th anniversary of Tom Hanks’s tour de force, Forrest Gump, select theaters are rescreening the movie this weekend.

And the impeccable high-and-tight Hanks sports throughout most of the film—save for a cross-country jog or two—got us thinking about the many wonderful grooming journeys his roles have taken him on...

From his boyish mop of curls to something that can only be described as Colonel Sanders–esque, this is the Follicle Chronicle of Tom Hanks on screen.»

The Greatest Soccer Mullets of All Time

061614_soccer-mullets-greatest-ever

The mullet doesn’t get much love these days—and for good reason.

But there’s one place it has always enjoyed a warm welcome: the world of soccer. In fact, you’ll still spot a surprising number of them on the fields of Brazil this month. (Look no further than tournament favorite Brazilian wunderkind Neymar, who’s sporting the updated Euro-fied version of the haircut that verges on faux-hawk in front, ducktail in back.) Needless to say, if there were ever a group of people who knew how to make an already flamboyant hairdo even more flamboyant, it’s soccer players.

So, without further ado, here are the greatest soccer mullets of all time...»

Ah, isn’t spring glorious?
