2013 may very well have been The Year of the Beard (sorry, ladies). Seems like everyone from your neighborhood tight jeans hipster in the unlistenable noise rock band to the championship Boston Red Sox sported a serious Grizzly Adams. Even out on the trail, rain or shine or snow, I stopped counting face fuzz at around hiker number 20.
But there’s a dark flipside we’re not talking about. Some red-blooded hiking males are shockingly unable to grow Tuff Scruff, no matter how much Rogaine they (ahem) shave with. Come winter, the results can turn tragic as they’re left to brave winter storms with an exposed face. A naked face.
It doesn’t have to be this way. You can help. (And not with barbershop-floor clippings and Gorilla Glue.) Thanks to Beardski, any male — nay, any person — can reap the benefits of a luxuriant, flowing beard while blasting winter pow, stalking wild game, or just enjoying a Mai Tai around the fire. This holiday season, your gift of a Beardski will encourage your non-bearded friends to step out of the shadows and into the five o’ clock shadows.
Beardski offers myriad options, from the blaze-orange (safety first!) Hunter to the Odin-worthy Viking. Not sure where to go? You can’t go wrong with classic Prospector. Now that's a look that never gets old.
But whether you choose to help a friend in need, remember: breaking beard isn’t always easy. The important thing is to eliminate shame among the bearded and non-bearded alike and just communicate. As the Appalachian Mountain Club notes, even famous non-bearded people like the hosts of the Today Show are looking to Beardski for help.
Together this holiday season, we can make a better world. A bearded one.
