In 1941, just months before the attack on Pearl Harbor, the men at Fort Stotsenburg in the Philippines had a beard contest. “The Unwritten Record,” a blog run by The National Archives, wrote about the recent find, saying the charming footage was “nestled among shots of city streets and training exercises.”
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…
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. Now the beard-haters will have something to throw back at us. A recent…
Exceptional actor and even better beard-wearer Oscar Isaac is on a press tour to promote his new film Ex Machina (I’ve heard it’s pretty good!) He is also aware of the fact that this blogger and many, many of this site’s readers think he looks much better with a beard.
Here's a trailer for an upcoming cool-looking thriller about rich crazy guy who built a sexy robot who may be lying. It looks okay! The most important takeaway from it, however, is not the film, but the fact that the film's star Oscar Isaac's beard is back. And after the winter we've had, thank God.
There's a new gift for the lumbersexual who has everything except something that'll make his face look like it's covered in strange metallic growths: Beard Baubles, which are Christmas tree ornaments for your beard.
WHAT DO WE WANT? BEARDS! WHEN DO WE WANT IT? WHENEVER THE BRIGHAM YOUNG UNIVERSITY ADMINISTRATION DEEMS IT APPROPRIATE.
You have to give her some points for honestly. Brutal, tear-stained, honesty.
The Fifty Shades of Grey trailer is upon us, and while it doesn't reveal much from the Red Room of Pain, it does come wih the startling discovery that Jamie Dornan's been stripped of his hair and turned into a sanitized, shaved, waxed version of himself.
Ramp up production at the Gillette factory, because sooner or later, ladies are going to run out of patience and demand that the straight fellas, at least, show their naked chins once more. And so, a new study predicts, the great beard flowering of the 2010s will begin to wilt.
Blame the cold winter, but men in politics are loving beards right now. From Secretary of State John Kerry to White House speech writer Cody Keenan to Press Secretary Jay Carney, those white male democrats are loving that hair on their face. But what does this all mean for the state of the union?
Quit worrying about the wording of your LinkedIn "about me" section and forget the font on your resume. You know what potential employers really love? Beards. Even fake beards!
Terrible news out of the United Kingdom. Queen Elizabeth has gone too far. "Sources" tell the Express that her majesty has informed Prince Harry in no uncertain terms that she "intensely dislikes" whiskers and he is to shave his magnificently rakish polar-expeditionary beard "sooner rather than later."
Just in case you're under the impression that if you lived life as a man, your days would be free of the burdensome weight of having to be attractive, stop, drop and roll because that is certainly not the case. The latest concern for men is whether or not they are beardly enough.
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…
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…
A newly published study out of the University of New South Wales concludes that men and women perceive men with facial hair to be more attractive and better father-material than clean-shaven ones. WHO'S THE DISAPPOINTMENT NOW, MOTHER?
