Top 10 Celebrity Mustaches


Life is better with a ‘stache. Welcome to WatchMojo.com, and today we’re counting down our picks for the top 10 celebrity mustaches.

For this list, we’ve chosen ten celebrities who are known for their unique or unforgettable mustaches.

#10: The Politician ‘Stache
Teddy Roosevelt

President Teddy wasn’t the first or last celeb to sport a walrus-style soup strainer; but we gotta give the nod to this high-spirited Commander-in-Chief – after all, not every lip rug gets immortalized in a 20-foot-wide rock carving. Known as the manliest man you ever did meet, his motto was “speak softly and carry a big stick.” It also helps if you have a macho mustache.

#9: The Painter ‘Stache
Salvador Dalí

His whiskers look like something out of a… Salvador Dalí painting. Dalí grew his swirly ‘stache in the ‘20s, based on the similar facial hair of 17th-century painter Diego Velázquez – but Dalí took it to a whole ‘nother level. Always keeping it waxed and upturned, and pairing it with flamboyant clothing and a cane; this 20th-century artist put as much imaginative oddness into his look as he did his art.

#8: The Fighter ‘Stache
Chuck Norris

Chuck Norris doesn’t have a mustache; it’s just some of his hair trying to run away from his face. But seriously folks, “Walker, Texas Ranger” wouldn’t be the same without this ginger lip rug. Is it Chuck’s facial hair that gives him his mystical powers? We may never know, but this epic crumb catcher is the real deal – accept no substitutes.

#7: The Performer ‘Stache
Ron Jeremy

In case you ever wondered where the term “porno ‘stache” came from, he’s Exhibit A. Ron Jeremy is an icon in the porn industry – and no it’s not cause of his lady tickler. And by that we mean his mustache… Anyway, he’s the guy that started the mustache trend in the industry, and made every guy who grew one since look like he belongs in an X-rated movie theater.

#6: The Charmer ‘Stache
Burt Reynolds

Mustaches mean burly, brawny men, and Burt Reynolds may be the greatest example of this archetype – and his cowboy hat seals the deal. It’s changed in size and shape over the years, but Reynolds has stayed true to his choice of facial decoration – for the most part. One thing’s for sure: Burt Reynolds wants you to know real men have hair.

#5: The Scientist ‘Stache
Albert Einstein

Just like the hair atop his head, Einstein’s E=mc-stache was unkempt, wild and oh-so-Albert. More concerned with solving the mysteries of the universe than keeping his facial hair in check, Einstein always had a twinkle in his eye and a grin beneath his whiskers. While fellow German Friedrich Nietzsche’s mo is just as impressive, it’s Einstein who’s got the quintessential mad scientist look down pat.

#4: The Comedian ‘Stache
Charlie Chaplin

As silent film star the Little Tramp, Chaplin sported a carefully chosen toothbrush mustache he did not wear in real life. That’s because he said it added comedic effect without hiding his expressions. It became an iconic piece of facial hair, and one that everyone the world over recognized thanks to this beloved movie star. And then Hitler had to go and ruin it for everybody…

#3: The Wrestler ‘Stache
Hulk Hogan

The Hulkster looks the part of the all-American hero in every way, from his bleach-blond mane, to his oily, ultra-tanned skin, to his 24-inch pythons. With an equally bleach blond horseshoe mustache lining his lip and accentuating every word he speaks, this beefy muscle-man is in good company: the likes of Metallica’s James Hetfield and even “Broadway” Joe Namath himself have also sported this atypical ‘stache style.

#2: The Actor ‘Stache
Tom Selleck

If there was a support group for men with mustaches, Tom Selleck would be their tall, dark and handsome charter member. Mustaches and Hawaiian shirts may seem out of date now, but in the ‘80s Magnum made that look work, and even started a facial hair revolution. Selleck’s one guy who looks good with or without a lip ornament; but we can’t help thinking something’s missing when it’s gone.

#1: The Singer ‘Stache
Freddie Mercury

He will rock you, and he will rock a mustache. The treasured Queen frontman’s best-known look included the fattest, manliest mustache ever, which he often paired with no shirt and pants so tight they left little to the imagination. With his trademark facial hair accentuating his trademark teeth, Mercury’s style was iconic. Even decades after his death, the thickness of his ‘stache is still making men feel inadequate.
