Hunt for the sexiest Valentine’s beard starts
The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has revealed the shortlist for its annual hunt for the sexiest beard, with the winner of the annual My Hairy Valentine Award announced on Valentine’s Day 14th February
The BLF says that contrary to pogonophobic mythology many beards are soft, sexy and deeply mysterious.
Previous winners of My Hairy Valentine have included actor George Clooney, who is currently clean shaven, blogger and journalist Tim Montgomerie, and rugby player Geoff Parling.
The BLF says that whether a beard is sexy or not is in the eye of the beholder but the Award is focused on beards in the public eye, whether celebrities, politicians, musicians or sports stars.
The list covers a diverse range of people and beards, with a considerable churn from the 2015 list.
The online poll closes at midday on Friday February 13th
BLF Organiser Keith Flett said, in 2017 we may be reaching Peak Hairy Valentine, as beards get ever sexier
There is a shortlist of nine and we are inviting voters to nominate a 10th name
