Tell Us Why You Have The MEANEST Beard? (Share An Interesting Story Behind Your Beard. We Want To Know Who The Man Behind The Beard Is.) Well, a short while ago I was on my way to work in the morning when I hit black ice, lost control of my vehicle at 80+ km/hour, and came to a stop in a ditch, rolled over onto the top of my suv. My driver window was broken out and windshield shattered, glass all over my face. Undid my seatbelt, dropped into my head and crawled out the broken window. My beard is so bushy and MEAN that it saved me from a head injury! (Concussion)

Well it all started with me being too busy/lazy to shave and joining a beard group on facebook, then I saw how big the bearding community is and fell in love. I've seen how as a bearded community we help people less fortunate than ourselves. The approach we have towards men's mental health and that's it's ok to not be ok. This is the mentality I'm all about and my beard is here for the ride to help me in my journey.

Tell Us Why You Have The MEANEST Beard? (Share An Interesting Story Behind Your Beard. We Want To Know Who The Man Behind The Beard Is.) When I was younger I had really bad acne that scared up my face. It made me really passive, shy, and my confidence was shit. But in 2016 I started growing out my beard and since then I've gotten multiple promotions at work, knocked up my ole lady, am buying my first home and my confidence is through the roof now! My beard has changed my life and made me happier than ever.

Since I was young I wanted to grow a beard like ZZ Top or William Golden , My beard is the MEANest because at work at the county fair I am the bearded guy. They might not know my name but they know my beard. I am the man behind the beard.
