I'm not going to lie, being bearded is great. I love my furry face just as much, if not a little more than women love their hair, and that's a bald statement, literally, as I have not one hair on my head.
Sadly living this 'Beard Life' doe have its occasional bumps in the road that we must contend with. So, let's have a little light hearted giggle with today's post, as we discuss 4 Beard Struggles Every Bearded Man Can Relate With...
One of the trickiest transitions I had to learn to overcome was eating certain foods, particularly my most favourites, like cheesy pizza, stacker cheese burgers, ice cream (with all the sprinkles, of course!) and all that other fun food stuff.
Many new beardy's choose to steer clear of these foods, where I suggest you should do the complete opposite and eat them more often. With a little extra practice you'll be eating your most tasty meals once again without the worry of wearing them. And remember kids, napkins are a beardsmens best friend around meal time.
BEARD HAIRS FALL, AND END UP JUST ABOUT EVERYWHERE!
It's true! Our beard hairs fall at a rapid rate, and you will soon begin spotting them just about everywhere. My wife is forever cursing me for finding my ginger face whiskers in her car, on the kitchen table, on the sofa and chairs, pretty much everywhere I've graced with my presence.
But don't worry my fellow bearded fellow, as quick as they may fall is as quick as they grow. So there's plenty of hairs to fall all over the place yet.
YOUR MUSTACHE LIKES TO SOAK UP YOUR DRINKS TOO!
Another trick you have to learn is how to sip your drinks correctly. This might sound a little odd and a touch silly, but if you try and guzzle down your tasty juice, or better still a fresh ice cold beer after a long and rather hectic day your mustache will sponge up a good quarter of your drink before it ever touches your mouth.
Thankfully this problem is easily fixed, by either slowing down your pour, or purchasing a little device known as a 'whisker dam'. A handy little gizmo that sits on your cup serving a a lip for your mustache to sit behind. Pretty neat, right?
EVERYONE WANTS TO TOUCH THE B!
It seems our furry faces are often a magnet for folks to want to reach out and touch them.
99% of the time this happens without being asked, or usually they ask when they have already reached out and gotten a hand full of face fuzz. I mean, I don't sweat this too much, as there's nothing like a good fondle every now and again, but do not be surprised if you leave with little product in hand, literally.
