Welcome to another edition Grooming Gods; a weekly recap of best men’s grooming highs (and sometimes lows) courtesy of our favorite stylish gentleman across the globe. From tooth gaps and DGAF beards to thigh tattoos, this week’s best grooming moments prove that sometimes you’ve got to live outside the box in order to stand out.
The Rock’s Salt-and-Pepper Beard
The Rock’s scruffy, salt-and-pepper beard definitely makes the can-do-it-all star look a little older than we’re used to seeing him, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t look great. Plus, every man is entitled to a DGAF grooming moment in the summer.
Milo Ventimiglia’s Mid-Length Cut
Ventimiglia is proof that long hair can be just as masculine as any buzz-cut. The trick is getting a good haircut, then forgetting about it on a day-to-day basis. Oh, and wearing really, really nice clothes.
Jussie Smollett’s Hydrated Curls
Jussie Smollett grew out his buzz-cut and let his natural hair texture do its thing—with the help of the right product, of course. The results are leading-man good.
Peter Kraus’s Tooth Gap
Peter Kraus may have lost The Bachelorette but at least he’s walking away with that excellent tooth gap. It’s not technically a men’s grooming move (unless the reality star got some serious dental work), but it does prove that imperfection is a good thing—especially when the other 99% of you is textbook attractive.
Josh Brolin’s Villain Undercut
Josh Brolin’s Cable in the forthcoming Deadpool 2 has a scary robot eye, a scary robot arm, and a really, really good undercut. In fact, it might just be enough to keep the fading fade alive.
Neymar’s Thigh Tattoos
Pulling off super-short neon swim trunks gets a lot easier when you’ve got soccer player thighs, badass ink, and piles of money in the bank.
