The Glory of the Beard

beardstencil.jpgBack in the day, when I was rocking a full beard, this happened to me as well:

"I didn't mean to. I couldn't help it. My beard caused a baby to cry. The other day I visited my cousin and her beautiful 10-month-old twin girls. Upon seeing me with my strange scruffy facial hair, one of the babies immediately narrowed her eyes, scrunched up her face and began bawling at the top of her lungs."

Read the rest of "Bask in the glory of the beard" for a view of one guy's beard experience, as well as the benefits of growing a beard.

15 Awesome Moustaches

Kangaroomustache.jpgOne facial hair style I've never really tried is the mustache - every time I've begun one, I just can't look in the mirror at my face with a mo without laughing. However, I've known plenty of guys who can pull it off without looking foolish, so I don't discount the effect that a classic mustache can have.

Over at Gunaxin, there's a rundown of the "Most Awesome Mustaches Ever", starting with the Fu Manchu and covering 15 of the best mustache styles (or if not the best, then the most memorable). So if you're considering making the switch to a hairy lip, check out the post and see if there's one that you'd be proud to wear.

Facial Hair Grows On You

closeupbeard.jpgFrom Book of Odds:

"The phrase "growing a beard" never made much sense. It implies an active function carried out by the beard wearer. In actuality, facial hair grows on its own, its landlord merely condoning the process. This is not just a semantic grievance; in today's society, facial hair carries with it--besides the occasional food particle--a certain stigma.

The clean-shaven face implies youthful civility. The polar opposite--a beard that never saw the sharp end of a knife--demonstrates almost a carnal defiance of authority. Then there's everything in between: mustaches, goatees, Van Dykes, soul patches, mutton chops, and the Fu Manchu, among others. Many have graced the face of Brad Pitt."

Are You Making a Facial Hair Mistake?

muttonchops.jpgWe all like to believe that the way we wear our facial hair is flattering to us, but if we ask the women in our life, we may find out that we're sporting a major facial hair fail on our face.

From AskMen:

"Apart from your hairstyle, the No. 1 way for a guy to make his face more appealing is with the right facial hair style. Of course, the converse is true: the fastest way to make women think you've got a fugly mug is to insist on sporting bizarre, over-the-top or just plain sloppy facial hair. To avoid committing a facial hair style faux pas and ensure that your bed stays busy, read on for our ultimate list of the facial hair styles that women hate."

What do you think? Are they accurate?

Vote for Red Sox first baseman Kevin Youkilis' Facial Hair

youkilis.jpgFrom The Sporting Blog:

"Red Sox first baseman Kevin Youkilis understands the value of facial hair. He's allowing fans to vote on one of four facial hair designs he could sport on Opening Day against the Yankees. There's his usual goatee, the Magnum P.I. mustache, the clean shaven look that is bizarre and bound to lose and the Fu Manchu (which would copy the Youk Manchu he grew last year for his official photo)."

Head over to Youk's site and donate a buck or two to charity and vote on which style facial hair he should wear.

Skinner_Brian.jpgFrom Dime Mag, The NBA's All-Beard Team (By Position):

"As a personal purveyor of the beard, I have a special affinity towards players that rock 'em on the court. So that's why I was so excited to see James Harden tweet the following question last week: In the NBA what's yall top 5 all beard team by position? At first you think this might be easy, but it's the by position that makes it hard."
