Beards: Art for Your Face

Hukka Man!.jpgMost of us find a facial hair style that works for us and then stick with it. We may experiment with a different look for a while, reverting back to our 'usual' after a bit, but rarely change it up weekly.

Not so with Sameer Mehta. According to Times of India, he changes his facial hair every couple of days, and is now entered into the Limca Book of Records for growing 54 different beard styles.

"Among his various non-verbal hairy expressions are an IPL tribute that came in the form of cricket bats and balls, a tricolour flag for Independence Day, a pierced heart for Valentine's Day and even a voting symbol that ran down his chin during last year's elections."

According to Mehta, he came upon the idea during hospitalization after an appendix operation, when decided to use his facial hair as a fashion statement. "I wanted to do something unique and prominent".

His unique styles attract people's attention wherever he goes, often resulting in requests for photos with him, and he's even got a short cut to worship. "I've got a VIP entry in at least four temples so far".
