The Before Shot

It is with great regret that I am withdrawing from the World Beard and Moustache Championships in Berlin later this year. I have decided to bring to an end my training, which basically consisted of avoiding scissors and razors.

The reasons for this sudden change of heart are many. Not wanting to upset any more young children is one. Looking more and more like a high school maths teacher is another...



So consider this a before shot, for today I will subject myself to the trembling hands of a seventeen year old apprentice hairdresser...

High school maths teacher? Oh no, don't sell yourself short.
You could at least go for university physics or economics professor with that hair.

The previous beard looked good.. this one is a little grizzly adams meets The Aviator when he started to go loopy *ducks* :)

before you shave it all off, have you ever considered the advantages of huge lambchop sideburns? or im sure you could get a corking handlebar moustache out of that beard. both highly popular with the ladies ive been told.

seriously, think about it. You could just have the handlebar for 1 night out. it would be pure comedy.

i'm soon-to-be a math teacher and i don't look anything like that, i assure you, so you needn't worry about that look-alike version ;) but about those sideburns i read about above. that's a big yes from this girl. there's nothing like a man with sideburns :)

Gosh. How momentous.

Jason went through a period of not shaving at all. I'm always a little (well, a lot) hesitant about facial hair, so every day he'd ask me how it was. And every day, I thought it was fine. Now we look back on pictures, and I swear I was living with a lumberjack!

He has a beard trimmer now, and keeps it short and trim.

Dood, the beard looks tough! No shave.

Mmm not a fan of lambchops but it'd be a crackup for a night. So are you missing facial parts since the apprentice has attacked it?

I think you look adorable now...but will probably look fab without the beard as well.
