Beards Forever


The beard trend is really blossoming, folks, and I’m not complaining one bit. (Have you seen my Beard Porn Pinterest board lately?) In fact, I’m hoping the cooler weather will encourage more handsome men to add a nice amount of hair to their faces.

Did I ever tell you how my beard fetish enthusiasm began? Well, The Doobie Brothers were on constant rotation at my house as a young child, and well, Michael McDonald.

It’s true. It’s his fault. (The first time I watched this video, I thought a cardigan was draping Michael’s shoulders, and I thought, “how preppy of him!” Alas, a towel.)

In a sick twist of fate, my husband is unable to grow a full beard. I view this as a big, fat middle finger from the universe. It’s a good thing he’s really cute.

What are your thoughts on beards? Like? love? Absolutely despise?

    I feel your pain! I love beards too (been following your Pinterest board) and my husband can’t grow a beard either!! He’s tried a few times for me, but it just doesn’t work. :(

    My husband is totally hot when he’s a little scruffy (I don’t think I could take a full beard) but it’s so scratchy! Any tips?

      The “a little scruffy” stage is way scratcher than full beard territory!

      Check out “Bluebeards Original” I use their 3 beard products every day, and my beard is very soft (not to brag or anything). They are even having a special on their trio of products right now(http://bluebeardsoriginal.com/Beard-Sets/Bluebeards-Original-Trio.html). I love all three. They smell great, keep my skin happy and my beard soft.

    I looooove when my husband grows his beard out like the bottom middle picture in the collage above. This year he’s waiting until after the birth of our baby in December so he is clean-shaven for the photos. I’m a little sad that Beard Season is starting late around here!

    I looooooove me some facial hair! My dad has had a mustache since forever, and I think that sealed my fate as a lover of facial hair. My husband had a respectable goatee when we started dating and slowly over the years it’s blossomed into a full-face beard (kept at a length respectable for working for a Japanese IT company). I ADORE your Beard Porn board. Please never stop pinning :D

    There are not enough words for what I would like to say about beards. I love men with beards. Beards are hot, sexy, and manly. I am a lucky gal, because my lovin man always wears a full beard. My fetish started when I was a young gal, and saw Kenny Rogers. I love your beard porn page.

    LOVE the look of a good beard but do not love how scratchy they are! I guess that’s a minor price to pay for their sexiness. Thankfully my man can, and chooses to, grow a full beard. I think more out of laziness than to “look good”.

    Haha. My husband would give his right arm to grow a beard. Sadly, he cannot! He has beard envy and can spot a good one a mile away. :)

    Seriously, this post just made my day, scratch that, week. I adore my man with a beard, unfortunately he needs to shave for work. But that 3 week summer break… I take full advantage.

    I never was a huge fan of beards or mustaches, but my wonderful, sweet, handsome, hot husband had a mustache and goatee, and I adore it on him!

    I love love love beards! My husband can grow a killer beard. Full, long and lush. He has a grand time grooming it in various ways.

    My beard obsession started with my first ever crush, Dan Haggerty aka Grizzly Adams. Does anyone remember that show? MAN, I loved him.

    I love it on Dave. My thing is when Rich tries to grow it out, he starts this weird scaping around the jaw line. I’m all like, commit or shave. Don’t shave a line around her neck. Am I wrong?
