Fun with facial hair



A man after my own heart:

“I’ve had sideburns, a handlebar mustache, mutton chops, a goatee, the Abe Lincoln look and that thing where your mustache goes up into your sideburns,” says Brian Parkhill, a 25-year-old artist from Long Beach, Calif. “It’s just a fun way to play with your looks. Facial hair is always evolving.”

Parkhill was included in this way-too-long article from MSNBC.com about facial hair making a comeback. It mentions Movember and discusses the psychological impetus—“a direct backlash against metrosexuality and the feminization of modern man”—and feminine response.

My wife is usually supportive for about two weeks; then enthusiasm falls off a cliff. You may have noticed by I’m not only a member, I’m president of the facial-hair-should-be-fun club.
