obsessed.: Beards


If you've been reading my blog for a while now—or know me in real life—you've probably already come to the realization that I am a big fan of facial hair on men. Or, you know, I've announced it. I'm sure it probably stems from the fact that my dad had a beard for most of my formative years. (When he shaved completely, I'd beg him to grow it back.) Currently, I'm married to a man who has a beard, and both of us think he looks strange without it.

Colt's bushiest beard:


Colt's normal beard:


I also think many celebrity mens look better with beards (as was made evident by the theme of the 2009 Man Calendar.)

When friend of C&CC Shaun—who also has a fine beard—posted this infographic on Facebook a few days ago, I knew the time had come to publicly document my being obsessed. with beards. (Click the via link underneath the photo for a larger version.)

Also beard-related: How superb was Seneca Crane's beard in The Hunger Games?

Annie from Wattlebird recently posted this on her Tumblr and I immediately reblogged.


(Annie also posted a DIY version of his beard on her blog ... and it's even garnered it's own Facebook page!)

Are you a fellow fan of facial flair?

  1. yes!!! i freak out when ricky shaves off his beard. he looks like such a baby face and i just can't handle it. usually he just has a partial (much like the van dyke pictured above) but lately hes been rocking the full beard and i love it. the last time he shaved it all off he did it in stages and came out out of the shower with a porn-stache. i just about had kittens and made him shave it off immediately.

    1. Colt shaved last Halloween for Scott Pilgrim and it worked with the costume, but we both wanted the facial hair back a.s.a.p. :)

  2. You are so lucky to call a beardy man your own! I love facial hair (albeit mostly just on men) and have been trying to convince Marco on several occasions to let his stubble grow, but he's having none of that. Once he did not shave for about ten days and I still sometimes fondly look at the photo I took of him then.

    1. I'm sure Marco would just have to get used to the feel of it. ;)
