Though men tend to encourage one another when it comes to growing some facial scruff, us ladies tend to be a little more critical. Either way, one thing's for sure: this beard trend isn't going anywhere.
It's almost accepted as fact that growing a beard makes a guy look ten times more attractive. We look back at our favourite Pakistani male celebs to put that theory to the test!
Here's some beard inspiration for all the men out there still confused about whether they should keep it, trim it or shave it:
1) Fawad Khan
Khan has a strong jawline, one that is only further accentuated by a short, trimmed beard.
2) Hamza Ali Abbasi
Much like his personality, his beard is a little wild and out of control, but he makes it work without looking too unkempt!
3) Faysal Qureshi
If there's a beard that's caused a commotion, it's Faysal Qureshi's ominous full-face in Bashar Momin. Nabila paired it with Beckham's fade haircut, and it took off!
4) Sheheryar Munawar Siddiqui
The budding actor went from boy-like to manly real fast once he grew his facial mane!
5) Ali Xeeshan
With his penchant for theatrics, Ali Zeeshan makes sure that he looks no less than a magician and his grizzled beard plays a big part in that!
6) Abbas Jaffery & Hasnain Lehri
Lehri joins the ranks of Abbas Jaffery, as one of our hottest bearded male models! His facial scruff game is strong -- and he knows it!
But we have to tip our hats to the original man; no one quite leads the pack like him:
7) Atif Aslam
Over the years, the singer has experimented with his style but we think he looks best with a tame, slightly bushy beard.
8) Danish Taimoor
A little more manicured than we'd prefer, Taimoor's facial hair styling works nonetheless; he pulls off a manly beard while still retaining his boy-next-door charm!
9) Hassan Sheheryar Yasin
HSY has always been a trendsetter, so it's no surprise that he's made an appearance on this list too. What he lacks in hair on the scalp, he makes up for it with his beard!
10) Ayub Khoso & YBQ
Beard buddies Ayub Khoso and YBQ have been sporting similar styles of facial hair for a while now, and it's become part of their signature look.
Clearly, a little bit of facial hair goes a long way!
