Ah, facial hair. While a bit of laid-back scruff - or even a full-blown beard - can be ultra-sexy on the right man, there are some who just shouldn't rock the beard. Like these guys...
PLUS: Check out these hotties, with and without their whiskers.
Conan O'Brien: "The Unemployment Beard"
On the one hand, we adore Coco's "I-don't-care" scruff. On the other, we're pumped for the fall debut of his new late-night show-which he's hinted at buzzing the beard for. Just so his pompadour remains intact!

Spencer Pratt: "The Creepy Flesh-Colored Beard"
Sure, it's as platinum-blond and tragic as Hulk Hogan's handlebar mustache. But the CF-CB is the least of this fame w----'s worries, what with his inflatable estranged wife and that whole magic crystals thing.

Zach Galifiniakis: "The Chewbacca"
We got a glimpse of him beardless when he hosted Saturday Night Live…and to be honest, it was kinda like seeing him naked. Maybe he should stay furry.

Emile Hirsch: "The Mutton Chops"
What is your address? We want to mail you some stuff you don't currently own but definitely should: an Oscar for your fearless performance in Into the Wild, the cell number of every girl on staff, and-oh! Um, a razor. We still think you're one of the hottest guys around, though.

Jayson Werth: "The Blotchy Beard"
Have you ever bought an at-home bikini-wax kit, given up after ripping off only two incredibly painful strips, and prayed that no one would see the hilarious bald patches until they grew in (do this for a flawless bikini line)? We've concluded that this Phillies All-Star did that to his face.
