November means a few things: Thanksgiving, sweater weather...and "No-Shave November." It's not just a hashtag or trending topic, it has become so ingrained in our culture that there are pages, contests, and websites dedicated to the glory of the beard. The great thing about "No-Shave November" is that it's foundationally rooted to generate awareness for cancer, so even if you're not a fan of your man's scruff, it's for a great cause.

"No-Shave November is a web-based, non-profit organization devoted to growing cancer awareness and raising funds to support cancer prevention, research, and education."

Growing a beard for some men takes patience, diligence, and a lot of trial and error so you've got to marvel at his discipline to grow out his hair. Men are meticulous in their use of creams, oils, and conditioners to maintain, soften, and keep their beard looking in tip-top shape. Their barbers can attest to the hard work and care taken to trim, edge, and line-up a good beard during this month which does require ample maintenance so the beard doesn't get scraggly and unkempt.

Here at NaturallyCurly we're dedicated to providing you with the best in hair tips, tutorials, and product that can change your curly game, but we also have something for men who are seeking to change their hair game through stylish cuts and maintenance no matter their pattern or texture. In honor of the movement that is "No-Shave November" and the passion for an excellent beard we've scoured social media for the best of the best in beards. The best thing about a man with a beard is there is no right or wrong way to sport one.

Whether it's thick, thin, bushy, shaped up or lining his face, beards are hot. Beards are the equivalent of a hat - men look completely different when wearing one and we can appreciate the subtle or bold transformation even if it's just temporary. Some men will sport their beard game all season and others will bring back the razor and reveal their face at the end of the month. Below you'll find 20 of the hottest men rocking beards ranging from athletes, models, personal trainers, the everyday man, and your business executive. These men sport their beards proudly and we are in 100% support of the "No-Shave November" movement.
