While Movember has come and gone, that’s still no excuse to shave your stache.

If you’re looking for an awesome look for your facial hair, whether for Movember, just the heck of it or by joining the World Beard and Mustache Championships, then the Fu Manchu deserves some serious consideration.

The Fu Manchu mustache was named after the fictional character of the same name from the stories of British author Sax Rohmer. However, the villain never rocked the mustache until he was brought to life on film in 1923.

Since then, guys have attempted to grow the devious look. Of course, that includes celebrities. Here’s ten celebs who have sported the Fu Manchu.
