This is a little more like it! Ben Higgins looks more like himself minus that fuzzy caterpillar on his upper lip.
Justin Bieber stepped out in early 2020 sporting a mustache that fans and wife Hailey Bieber didn't really like. But by mid-February, he'd shaved it off — though vowed to bring it back soon. So… 'stache or no 'stache?
"I shaved. MUSTASHIO went on holiday, but he will be back in due time," Justin Bieber captioned this post-shave selfie on Instagram on Feb. 16, 2020. Wife Hailey Bieber took to the comments section to make it clear she was happy he'd groomed, writing, "yeeeeee😍," and Justin's mom, Pattie Mallette, also chimed in with her approval, writing, "Ya praise God."
The past couple years have brought some major changes for everyone's favorite "The Office" crush. John Krasinski has not only moved into the leading man phase of his career but has also moved behind the camera to direct global smashes like "A Quiet Place" — and he started sporting a beard. While we love this hunky version of him, we'll always have a soft spot for John in his clean-shaven Jim Halpert days.
This is probably the John Krasinski you're used to seeing. The actor famously had to keep his razor handy during his "The Office" years.

Jason Momoa shaved his beard for the first time in seven years and revealed his new look in a YouTube video posted on April 17, 2019.

"I just want to do this to bring awareness — plastics are killing our planet," he told fans in the must-watch four-minute clip.
Benedict Cumberbatch started sporting a 'stache in late 2018 to play a Cold War-era spy in the thriller "Ironback." "I very rarely get to choose my own style of facial hair, or hair, for that matter," Benedict said on British TV show "Lorraine" in November. "It's all paid for, kind of. It's all kind of designed for a look for a part."
We don't even have to ponder this: We're 100 percent sure we prefer Benedict Cumberbatch without any facial hair at all!

However, we still like George Clooney when he shows up looking like this too.

We adore Common whether he's rapping, acting or being an outspoken advocate, but the tiny goatee/mustache combo is not a winning look from our point of view.
This might be one of the hardest choices, but bearded Chris Hemsworth wins by a hair. (Pun intended!)
Chris Hemsworth is known for going back and forth between clean-shaven and bearded. Looking like he does, we can't say we blame him!

But when Jared Leto doesn't have a beard, his true age becomes a figment of our imagination!

Then again, Oscar Isaac might look more approachable with a fresh-faced look.

But we can't help but love how handsome Bradley Cooper looks without a beard… don't you think?

But Ryan Reynolds always looks like a classic leading man when he's more clean-shaven.

Clean-shaven for the win on Christian Bale!
