PRESIDENTIAL FACIAL HAIR, RANKED
Only eleven Commanders-in-Chief have worn facial hair during they're tenure, the most recent in the very early 1900's. With facial hair being back in style, will we see another bearded president after Hillary? If not, look out for me in 2028 😉
- •Martin Van BurenFirst off, just embrace the baldness and shave it all off. Then keep going and get rid of those ridiculous protruding sideburns.
- •John Quincy AdamsThe first President to try out any facial hair, so that's cool. But they look kind of like pincers.... it's unnerving.
- •Chester A. ArthurSideburns into mustache, why was this ever a style??
- •Abraham LincolnThe first President to sport a full beard. Facial hair served to round out Honest Abe's hollow face very well. Probably should committed fully and grown the mustache.
- •Theodore RooseveltBushy mustache, looks great when he's laughing and intimidating when he isn't.
- •Grover ClevelandI'm not personally a just-mustache guy but he keeps it clean cut.
- •William Howard TaftI don't like this style but it's such an impressive handlebar mustache it has to be ranked high.
- •James A. GarfieldThe length is impressive but it seems tangly and messy.
- •Rutherford B. HayesHe ought to have trimmed back a little and he would have looked more distinguished. But it's clean, even, and long.
- •Benjamin HarrisonWhite and neat, to me this embodies a "Grandpa" beard.
- •Ulysses S. GrantSo lush, a full beard but he kept it reigned in and clean. Ultimate facial hair goals.
