Back when I was in college, a few friends from Campus Crusade and I started a little tradition known as No-Shave November. It was no Whiskerino to be sure, just a simple pact between friends to bear facial hair for the entire month. Having Beaird as my last name, you’d think I’d be wooly by default, but honestly I prefer that clean shavin’ look – as does my wife. I’m pretty sure the last time I went without shaving for more than 3 days was 2002. After 5 years, I was curious what I would look like with a beard. On November 1st I put away my electric razor, and this is the result:
As you can tell, I still have a goatee. It definitely looks and feels a lot cleaner than the full beard, but I’m not sure how much longer it’s going to last. I’ll give it a few more days though. Maybe it’ll grow on me.
