Happy friday furry faces and whisker supporters! May your work day be short and sweet and your weekend work-free long and blissful!

Today let's discuss why our beards have made and continue to make history, remaining as popular as ever as they grow proudly upon our faces, as we discuss What People Find Most Appealing About A Man With A Beard?


Taking a little dabble back into the human history books sees our beards take a rather powerful stance in our lore.

Many kings proudly sported a face full of whiskers, as did the egyptian pharoahs. So much so that if a Egyptian king couldn't sprout out much of a beard on his own, they would spend a small fortune on having a golden crested false chin beard created, of which they would wear each and every day to further symbolise their strength, power and wisdom in leadership.


Let's be honest, a dapper beard does add that strong appearance to many of a mans appearance. They can transform an otherwise naked faced youth into a manly man who looks like he's about ready to take on the world and win. Women often dig a rough and rugged gent, and beards certainly deliver in that department!


Not only do our facial forests add a sharp looking appearance visually, they can also add an edge to our personality and character too. It is a rather tough pointer to explain, but ask any man with a beard and he will first express how much he digs his furry chops, then is likely to suggest that the beard is more than just facial hair, but almost an extension to persona.

Before I had a beard I always felt somewhat awkward in social gatherings, almost as if I didn't fit into any of the usual clicks and boxes. Then I stopped giving a damn and grew out my face fur, and have never looked back since. I'm more confident, and like to make a brassy entrance upon my arrival. True story, Bro. Can you relate?


Can you remember that horror story that was floating about social media a few years ago? You know the one, that 'YOUR BEARD CONTAINS MORE POOP THAN A TOILET SEAT!!' story? Well, since then actual real studies have taken place to confirm it is quite the opposite story. In fact our beards might actually be producing beneficial bacteria that could change how medicines work in the not so distant future!

So, for all those beard haters and disapprovals out there, stick that in your timeline and toot it!

That sees Fridays blog come to a sweet close for today my furreinds! As always please be sure to leave us your thoughts and feedback 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.
