Oscars, Grooming, and the Facial Hair Frenzy


The red carpet at the 84th Annual Academy Awards was bristling with well groomed facial hair and the Hollywood men sporting them. The quintessential black suit and tie is an Oscar standard for men but RedCarpetTips.com has chosen a selection of those who proved that fashion can be found in the follicles.

GQ’s Sexiest Man Alive, Bradley Cooper debuted the loudest mustache of the evening and received mixed reviews. His manscaping sparked tremendous Twitter recognition, with @Hulu tweeting “Bradley Cooper is just in from robbing a train,” and #moustachelove becoming a trending topic.

Nick Nolte and Brad Pitt also showcased facial hair at the Awards. The longstanding A-listers combined beards with their wardrobe selection. Pitt opting for a Kurt Cobain type of beard to compliment his long hair and Nolte going for an all white, full faced beard to go with his often candid personality.
