There once was a time that they were frowned upon by the masses, thought to be only for sailors and lumberjacks. They were only adopted by brave "alternative musicians" and their followers. This all has changed. The beard and Mustache phenomenon is slowly taking over the faces of men everywhere.The "trend" is an extremely glittery one (perceived as super cool/kief/rad) and for the most part it is. The thing which makes me sad though is this:
Locnville's attempt at facial hair.
So there are some downsides, like people that really really can't rock a beard, trying to.
and also that mustaches are a must-have on the hipster wishlist.
[god,help us all]
So the facial hair-a-thon that has gripped the world should more than likely not grip every face. I believe that to pull off a beard you need to have an almost majestic strongly masculine feel.Be a true beliver and lover of the beard. Like these people:
Every Time I die Guitarist: Andy Williams
Folk king: Devendra Banhart
Andy Hull of Manchester Orchestra
Delicious French connection model.
Dylan Blake, Geologist
Andre Pereira- Vocalist for Sesling
Sam Beam- Iron and Wine
Gideon De Kock- Bassist:Like Knives & YS!MM
Dash Snow- Artist
Ciaran Coetzee- Snor enthusiast
Mark smith- Explosions in the sky
Brett Allen-White- Copywriter/bassist
do you all get my point? the beard trend doesn't always glitter but hell, real beards grown by real men.
THOSE are purely golden.
[i apologize for any epic beards i may have skipped.
