Poll finds the sexiest Valentine’s Day beards.


The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has said that an on-line poll for sexiest Valentine’s beard has established that the top three sexiest beards are as follows:

1 Idris Elba

2 Gary Lineker

3 Aidan Turner

Idris Elba first came to notice in The Wire but has played a number of headline roles since, while Aidan Turner’s Poldark beard is also a winner this year with Gary Lineker’s stylish goatee also up there.

The winner of the annual My Hairy Valentine Award is 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.

BLF Organiser Keith Flett said, beauty is in the eye of the beholder but on Valentine’s Day we celebrate the sexiest beards and suggest that there are many worse things than giving a Valentine’s kiss to the man with a beard in your life
