Does testosterone help facial hair growth?

Does testosterone help facial hair growth?

The short answer is, yes:

[Tweet “Testosterone can help facial hair to grow thicker. Men with lots of testosterone have bigger beards.”]

I recently concluded an interview with Dr. Alan Bauman, a facial hair transplant specialist. I asked him what effect testosterone has on facial hair growth, and he responded:

Testosterone has the opposite effect on beard hair as it does on the scalp.  On the…

How To Be Classy

How To Be Classy

Many of the top Google results for “how to be classy” are pretty unclassy. They include top-10 lists, and brilliant observations like “don’t burp in public”. They co-mingle words like “fabulous” and “hip” with “classy”, as if they mean the same thing. They don’t. You can’t define classiness by a “Top X” list with big headlines that are easy to scan. Classiness is not a step-by-step process that…

How to Wear a Beard Without Being a Hipster

How to wear a beard without being a hipster: http://www.growabeardnow.com/hipster-beard/

Hipster: the word all bearded gentlemen dread. I don’t know how it happened, but growing a beard, if you live in an urban area, is now seen as a mark of hipsterism.

An interesting observation about the word hipster is that no one uses it to describe himself. “Hello, I’m a Seattle hipster”, says no one. Instead, the word hipster is universally used as a pejorative. That is, it is used by others to…

Profiles in Beardliness: Bill Sauder

I’m happy to introduce you to Bill Sauder—a sensitive, eloquent bearded professional who dug up the Titanic:

Today I’m pleased to introduce you to the beard of Bill Sauder–one of the excavators of the RMS Titanic. What we have here is not only a bearded man, but a bearded professional, who is unmatched in his eloquence and possessed with the sensitivity of a gentleman.

I also provide tips and tricks for gents like me with long beards.
