Beards are apparently a hot and very trendy topic at the moment. If you live in New York I’m positive you’ve run across many a man sporting a beard. Sometimes unkempt, other times utterly trimmed to sheer perfection.
My personal favorite beard of choice would belong to my lovely friend Dusty. As far as I’m concerned he’s the only man alive that can have a beard and rock it hardcore.
It’s a funny thing as I see more and more products catering to beards. Beard oils, beard combs, hell Etsy has a crazy amount of beard related paraphernalia and grooming products. I mean there’s even like a fragrance mist for beards. Beards in the beauty industry are obviously VERY hot at the moment.
I’ve always sat and wondered how I’d handle having a beard. I mean are there issues with like beard crumbs after eating? Do you have to shampoo and condition your beard? Does it smell bad if you don’t? When you’re at a club does your beard get that weird smoky smell that sometimes clings to your hair after a night out? Do you have like bad beard days where your hair is standing up in all sorts of weird directions? I mean I already have a crazy skincare regimen plus add to the fact I have crazy hair (it’s long, wavy, and a pure bitch to take care of) plus a host of other girly issues and I cringe thinking how difficult it must be taking care of a beard.
I have to say one of the most surprising beards I’ve run across is Jamie Dornan. I dunno what it is but his beard kinda is a personality all itself. If you see him in an interview you can’t take your eyes away from the beard. It’s like they are interviewing the beard and not Jamie. It feels like it’s a separate entity. I can’t take my eyes off. Mind you this isn’t because I like his beard, it’s just so RIGHT THERE and I can’t seem to take my eyes off it. It’s unexpected and doesn’t seem to fit him for some reason.
Let’s not also forget about Ten’s beard. His grows in slightly ginger. You watch the man for several years running around in a trench coat and converse with the perfect head of hair and suddenly one day he wakes up with a beard and flat hair. It’s rather disturbing. Fan girls everywhere are still weeping that his smooth face and perfectly coiffed hair are gone forever more. I call his new look the Broadchurch.
Fassy has a bit of a beard going on as well but I guess we can forgive his stupid sexy hotness. I mean Fassy’s beard crosses oceans so you have to give him a little credit!
I, myself, happen to be a huge bishounen boy fan myself. Smooth face is the way to go. Maybe a bit of stubble is nice but not all the time! But a full beard? No. It’s just not how I like my guy! I prefer a nice smooth face!
If you were a guy would you sport a beard? Seems like a lot of work to me haha!
Do you like guys with beards or are you all about a smooth face?
