It's Fridaaaay! which can only mean that the weekend is almost with us. It is time to relax after a hectic working week for most of us, so whatever you have planned this winter weekend be sure to have your face fur on point and ready first to take on the world.

Today let us take a little stroll down 'Beardy Lane' as we ponder the thought as to why you don't have to search very far to spy a marvelous beard sat upon the face of a fine dapper gentleman. In the year of 2017 beards are well and truly booming, so lets begin todays blog topic which is smartly titled - Here's Why Beards Are Turning Heads Just About Everywhere...


It is a well documented fact, proven by many 'serious scientific studies'' that the female of our species rather admires the god gifted appearance of a handsome bearded fellow rather than a naked faced partner.

It is suggested that our lovely ladies prefer a man with facial hair, and see them better suited and booted as possible future husband material. Maybe it's the sense of security as a manly face forest delivers a sense of strength and confidence, or perhaps it is just simply because hairy faces are damn right badass!


It seems socially facial hair has slowly become more accepted, although not completely it seems.

Workplaces are warming to the idea that a man with facial hair isn't lazy, or even scruffy, but simply wants to express his freedom to grow out if he so pleases to do so. The armed forces have changed their ruling, as have several other large organisations over the past few years. Whereas others have actually tightened up on the 'no beard at work' ruling, which in essence seems rather petty if you ask me. But all in all, our facial hair remains as popular as ever, which given a little more time will see other corporate business follow suit and welcome furry faces into the workplace.


''Hey Bro, awesome beard you got, Bro. Hey Bro, how long did that take you to grow, Bro? ''

Sounds familiar? I thought as much. It is no secret that the respect shown between us men for one another's facial hair is very respectable indeed. In fact I might even go as far as suggesting your facial hair might impress your 'Bros more than the ho'lovely women you might meet in the club. See what I did there? ;)


Pause here for evil canned laughter... *MUHAHAHAHAHAAAAR!*

Ehem, yeah, sorry about that.... It seems that our beloved fuzzy faces are forever gorwing in popularity and are showing zero signs of slowing or growing. More faces than ever participate in 'No Shave November' each year, which often leads onto many men choosing to keep their face fur long after the month of November has been and gone. And let's face it, who can blame them! I absolutely adore my red whiskers, and would never even consider the idea of axing them away ever again. In fact the very thought alone scares the bejesus out of me.

That sees this weeks of jam packed blogs come to a sweet close for now my friends. As always we love hearing back from our readers, so be sure to let us know your thoughts and tails in the comments section provided below.

And until next time, Beard on Brothers, Beard on...

Her Bearded Desire – Are Men with Beards More Desirable to the opposite sex?

by Jonathan Adcox January 24, 2018 1 Comment

A woman’s attraction to her counterpart is a direct reflection of her expectations on that person. Whether it is a casual fling, a uncommitted or committed relationship, a woman is going to make the best decision she can based off of her perceived impression or intentions of that man based on their appearance. Ultimately, in a world where a woman has to base her needs on first impressions, just like a job interview, your beard, or lack of beard, may be applying for her next conquest.
