NY Times: “The modern man has a beard.”

Original: The World Beard and Moustache Championships®

modern manPhoto by Chris Warde-Jones for The New York Times

Stating the oh-so obvious, the New York Times, famous for “all the news that’s fit to print,” recently declared what all of us have known for quite some time: The modern man has a beard.

The Times was reporting on the big international men’s trade show Pitti Uomo in Florence, Italy, where most of the male fashion models sported beards. According to the report, there has been a “generational shift from the smooth cheeks that defined Western masculinity for at least 100 years.”

Duh.

Happy Birthday, Beard!

Original: The Beard Coach

Happy birthday to you – Happy birthday to you – Happy biiiiiirthday, dear Beard.  Happy birthday to you!

Beard, you’re ten years old today!  Ten years old!  You’re no longer a small child beard, but you haven’t yet gotten to the strange pre-teen stage where angst and drama could begin to burst forth at any moment.  Nope, you’re comfortable with who you are and you know what you like.

You like staying pretty long, but not epic length.  Just long enough for people to notice you and wonder, “Where are that hipster’s horn-rimmed glasses?  And why isn’t he wearing chukkas?  Maybe his anchor tattoo is covered up by his sleeve.”

You like waving in a good strong breeze.  Like a noble flag.  Made of hair.

You like taking a dip in the water in the summer so that the air can cool my face in the most refreshing way.

Occasionally you get a wild hair (see what I did there!) to be trimmed close to my face.  Only for you to hear my wife accost me for harming you.  Even though you asked for it.

We have so much fun together, Beard!  Remember these classic moments?

- Losing that pie eating contest, but looking so awesome when we were done that everyone wanted our picture

- Road tripping in...

Eurovision 2014, you win the internet

Original: Build-A-Beard

Thanks to The Independent for alerting us to this, think we found the act we're backing to win Eurovision song contest... we're just going to leave this here...

Singing for Austria, meet Conchita Wurst, aka Tom Neuwirth, who has been performing as his alter ego Conchita since 2011. For this year's contest he will be singing 'Rise Like a Phoenix'. Tom's motto is: 'Be the best version of yourself rather than a bad copy of someone else'. Conchita is a symbol for tolerance and artistic freedom around the world.

Austria, way to prove it, you win the internet.

Atlanta Residents Should Check These Blinds Out

Original: Atlanta Mustache

Window Blinds for Atlanta Residents

Atlanta is a city to live in because of its rich history and tradition.

The people are friendly and you can get some of the best tasting peaches all year round. When it comes to window blinds, it is important that you make the correct choice.

A very popular window blind type for Atlanta residents is decorative roller shades.

You can get a cool print on them and the best part is that some of them will provide insulation during the cold months while still cooling your home during the summer.

Atlanta’s weather varies depending on the season and for this reason, it is important that you choose the right window blinds. For the best prices please click on blinds Boston , blinds Columbus , blinds Fort Wayne , blinds St. Paul , blinds Nashville ,

Product

Hello Beardsmith's,

Over the past several months, years… I've been asked, "Do you shampoo your beard?", "Do you use conditioner?" "Any recommendations?" Well thanks to our friends at Beardsley, Beardbrand, and Honest Amish, we have some samples for our next meeting. I've received shampoo, conditioner, oils, lotion, and some wax. I'll bring some small bottles with me so you can try some of these at home. If you happen to have any small 3oz bottles, bring them with you and I'll hook you up with some products to try. I'll also bring some products that I have so you can try them out as well. If you've ever had any questions about waxing your mustache, Devon and Sam Holcombe will be doing a waxing demo to show us all how it's done. I hope to see you on Thursday, March 20th at Underbelly from 6pm-9pm. Bring your questions and your facial hair. It'll be fun!!!!!

Atlanta The Place Of Interior Design

Original: Atlanta Mustache

Atlanta is a place of tradition.

You can tell by taking a drive around the neighborhoods. You will see the homes are elegant and have a traditional style.

Some of the most popular window coverings in Atlanta are also very popular in other cities and for various cities. One of these is basswood blinds.

This type of window covering is very popular in Atlanta because it has a traditional look and can be afforded by most people’s budget.

Basswood blinds are horizontal 2” blinds that tilt and move up or down. Another popular window covering in Atlanta is the roman shade made with bamboo material.

These are extremely popular because they are modern and unique. Order samples of each and decide on one. These blinds great in everything from homes to churches and you can buy them right now at theprimeblinds.com/window-treatments-shades-ma-boston-wisconsin-milwaukee-seattle-madison-lasvegas-reno-henderson-nvtheprimeblinds.com/window-treatments-shades-ohio-dc-columbus-baltimore-washington-cleveland-cincinnati-toledo-akrontheprimeblinds.com/window-treatments-shades-philadelphia-pittsburgh-michigan-detroit-indianapolis-fortwayne-indiana

Getting Atlanta Inspired Home Decor & More

Original: Atlanta Mustache

We love to head over to Ikea and just have a ball. That store is so large and can get just about anything over there which is a great thing. Sometimes, its not a big deal to some people to have a great home. But to us here in Atlanta, it is really a big deal.

So today start getting with the program and stop waiting around the home for your improvement to actually happen. Dont settle for less for style. Sometimes more is really more. Not that less is less. That is why I love window blinds and how they change the entire look of your home.

You can get blinds window that go with wood faux blinds or even motorized vertical blinds. You can also get sun shades for windows like these window blackout or these action roller shades motorized. After looking at these all-new exterior roller shades that include white roman...

BREAKING: We are making a difference (duh)

Original: Build-A-Beard

GUYS! We're doing it; and we are winning!

Look, we never want to hurt the economy, or any one company or another, make people lose jobs or support any kind of economic regression... but the fact of the matter is, there are certain companies that are at the forefront of beardicide and pognophobia... razors, single use or fancy ones with 8000 blades, trimmers, clippers, and other sinister tools of torture, destruction and death.

The companies that support or harbor these terroristic methods, it's no surprise that we have sworn to smoke them out of their holes back in 2008/2009, when B-a-B formed.

Well, beardos and stachemates, today, we are honored to let you know the tide of the war on beards is waning, it's taken a turn; a turn that will stand out as a key moment in time that you will tell your children that the wave finally broke, and rolled back.

Bloomberg reports that beardicide supporter and facial hair villain megacompany Procter & Gamble Co. (PG) has announced that everything from

Welcome to the party, NYT?

Original: Build-A-Beard

Well gosh... I wonder why it took the New York Times over nearly 5 years to arrive at this conclusion... and to be honest, we are not the least bit surprised it took this long.

Look, I get it. It's the New York *fucking* Times, the paper of record, but c'mon, the bandwagon is totally overflowing by now.This is perhaps just another example about the state of the media, and it's impending doom. Alas, you're welcome world. The brooklyn beard is here (duh), read all about it.

We announced 2010 (2010!) as the year of the beard. It's 2014, the beard decade is nearly halfway over. Welcome to the party, you just became that guy or girl too engrossed with their own appearance that they showed up to the party when everyone is already passed out from having too good a time, without you.

The water is still warm... I guess you can dive in; f you can avoid all the others already swimming about.
