Maybe you're a lumberjack, or maybe you're a baseball player, or maybe you just like having a lot of hair on your face. Whatever the reason is, you've decided to become a beard guy. Which is great. After all, we're currently living in The Golden Age of Beards.
You don't want to get messed up with a guy like Koji Uehara of the Boston Red Sox. He's a loner. A rebel. A fearless, clean-shaven cowboy on a baseball diamond beset by a brotherhood of bearded ball players; and in the official MLB World Series video that just released yesterday, this pitcher's beardless brawn has him throwing more than just wins for the Sox.
Growing a beard can be an expression of freedom, but it's also a commitment. Beards don't take care of themselves any more than your lawn or your nails. They need some upkeep. "If you don't pay any attention to your beard, pretty soon, you're going to look like a wanderer from the Alaskan wild," says Sandy Poirier, celebrity stylist and owner of Shag, a salon in Boston.
