Breaking news, guys: eight out of the top ten sexiest men alive have beards. Do you?

The world is celebrating a resurgence – of facial hair. On Glamour's 100 Sexiest Men 2017 list, eight of the top ten guys are at various stages of bearded-ness. Though the smouldering billionaire Christian Grey in the movie Fifty Shades of Grey and its recent sequel Fifty Shades Darker is clean-shaven on screen, the real-life Jamie Dornan, who topped this year's list, has a healthy set of whiskers.

Of course, there are various styling considerations when it comes to growing a beard. Check out a few of the sexy gentlemen from the top of the list – and the popular styles they've been sporting:

Also called the Hollywoodian, this vintage look connects a moustache and a goatee, and extends up the jawline. Jamie switches between this style and the full beard, but he had to shave it bare for Fifty Shades of Grey.

Aidan Turner: The Full Beard

The traditional full beard is a face that's chock full of connected whiskers. It's also considered the most manly style of beard – if it's well groomed.

Named for Italo Balbo, Mussolini's right-hand man in the lead-up to the Second World War, this style combines a moustache with hair on the chin and a "soul patch" under the lower lip. It's also been sported by Robert Downey Jr in recent years.
