Maybe Beards Aren't Full of Poop Bacteria After All

Last week, the internet erupted with the news that beards, those beautiful things that hide men’s weak chins and childhood acne scars, are chock-full of something more than manliness—and that something is poop. For anyone either excited or horrified by this news (my immediate reaction was to go drag my bearded face… » 5/04/15 1:00pm 5/04/15 1:00pm

Study Says Men's Beards Are Gross and Filled With Poop

Ah, beards. You either love them or hate them. For those of us that are pro-beard, it’s easy to find kindred spirits through all the facial hair-dedicated Tumblrs, Instagrams and OKCupid profiles proclaiming an undying love for faces full of fuzz.

Stupid Hipster Beards Are Ruining the Economy

Ok, stupid hipster beards and workplace stubble are not ruining the entire economy, per se (or we have yet to prove that they are). What they are doing, though, is causing razor sales to decline across the board; in 2013, men's shaving is expected to lose its dominance in men's grooming sales for the first time… » 8/08/13 11:30am 8/08/13 11:30am

This Better Not Be the Beginning of the End for Beards

A piece in the Guardian asks "Have We Reached Peak Beard?" God, I hope not. I really hope not. I feel like beards and I have only just begun. If beards die out now Nicholas Sparks will have to write a book about how they were taken from me too soon, and then a major studio can make it into a motion picture starring… » 7/24/13 3:45pm 7/24/13 3:45pm
