Position held: General Secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party
Facial hair style: Mustache

It’s impossible to gaze upon the face of Stalin and not be impressed by his efficient communist mustache. While we disagree with pretty much everything he did when he was in power, his decision to grow the stache isn’t something we'll contest. This strong piece of facial hair helped give Stalin an imposing appearance in portraits and controlled video footage, even though he was only barely over five-feet-tall.
