9. ZZ Top
Hair of the ‘80s can best be described with one word: big. And for Billy Gibbons and Dusty Hill, frontmen of the rock band ZZ Top, their beards were no exception. (In one of the greatest examples of irony ever, the name of the band’s mostly clean-shaven drummer is… Frank Beard.) Granted, ZZ Top was making hit music since the early ‘70s, but it wasn’t until the music videos for “Legs” and “Sharp Dressed Man” that the band reached true commercial success. And what coincided with those videos? Why, the debut of Gibbons and Hill’s new chest-long beards, which they grew without each other’s knowledge during a prior hiatus.
