Beard Grooming

Grooming a beard is an art to itself, which most men never master. Our fathers raised us to shave off our whiskers every morning. It’s no wonder that we bearded few have little experience grooming a beard. With this guide, I explain why grooming a beard daily is important. I also provide tips and tricks for gents like me with long beards.

Profiles in Beardliness - Charles Haddon Spurgeon

This week’s profile in beardliness is Charles Spurgeon, a preacher who loved beards and loved cigars:

Today’s Profile in Beardlienss is none other than the mighty beard owner Charles Haddon Spurgeon, a Christian preacher from the 1800s.

How fast do beards grow?

How fast do beards grow? Finally a concrete answer to the ultimate question.

I broke down the science behind this question in my previous post, How Long Does it Take to Grow a Beard, which I encourage you to read. To sum up, all human hair grows at .5 inches per month, so it takes 2 years to grow a 1-foot beard (source).

That said, I’ve been making some interesting discoveries of late. Take Jose Salvador, for example. You remember him–he’s the guy who lasted 13 months on…
