Beards in the workplace are starting to become a more acceptable practice. However, there are a myriad of opinions about beards in every level of the workplace. Some people view them as unprofessional, while others view them as fashion trend that will fade out like the mullet. Let’s face it, whether it is masculinity, perceived aggression, or conforming to a trend, everyone has their own perception or stereotypes toward facial hair and its place in the workforce.
Whether it is Fashion, or a break from conformity being denoted as a man is important to our individuality. It sets one man apart from the next and tells a story about who we are as individuals.
