How to Maintain Your Beard, No Matter the Shape or Size

The clean-shaven men out there might think a beard is simply an excuse to avoid not only the razor but also the effort of tending to your facial hair with any regularity. They're only half right. While the hirsute do indeed get to sidestep the blade—or, at least, they should (more on that later)—they definitely aren't skimping on the work of keeping up with a grooming regimen, at least not if they actually want to look good. "The most important thing about any facial hair is the maintenance," explains Brent Pankhurst, who, aside from cutting hair for films and magazines, see more

Bald Man Rants Hilariously Against Hollywood's Villainous Portrayal of the Bald

As the famous (and famously bald) actor Telly Savalas once said, "We're all born bald, baby." But are all bald people born evil? That's certainly the message Hollywood is sending, according to YouTube user DarkAntics (via The Independent), who provided a 17-minute screed in which he takes Tinseltown to task for portraying a vast majority of bad guys as baldies. "Believe me, I expect you to sit there blind to your hair privilege and not have any idea of how this pervasive negative portrayal has affected your bias," he says in the beginning of his half-satirical but totally engrossing see more

You Don't Need a 10-Step Grooming Routine for Great Skin

Layers upon layers: Some South Korean men have a tiered skin-care regimen that's calibrated to deliver a youthful, glowing complexion. In Korean, it's called chok chok. It translates roughly to "plump and moist," and it's the nicest thing you can say about someone's face. It's so coveted that many South Koreans, men included, use 10 or more skin-care products each morning and night to achieve it. Guys wash with an oil-based cleanser, followed by a foam. They exfoliate, focusing on the areas that don't get hit with a razor. They prep their skin with a toner, massage in a see more

Watch This Man Grow a Massive Beard in a 365-Day Time-Lapse

If you haven't caught on by now, we're really into beards around here. Confident beards, powerful beards, hipster-cop beards—even poop-covered beards! Today in beards, we watch a man, Justin Basl, who grew out his facial hair for a full year, starting June 22, 2014, and chronicled each day via picture and video. At the end of his 365-day journey, he made the three-minute video above, which is a hypnotic timesuck if ever we've seen one. Still, it's definitely worth watching his five o'clock shadow turn into a caveman bush. Basl did this all in preparation for the third annual see more
