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.) I love my Beard. Beard is a great responsibility, because it's a gift that is not given to everybody. I am maintaining my beard like a baby. While growing my beard I am facings so many bad words from my friends and society.. fortunately or unfortunately nowadays they are my big beard supporters.

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.) I always liked to have a beard, but my family wasn't too excited about it. It's all about "hiding something". So it took some time until I started to constantly wearing a (short) full beard since about 1999. History repeated in my relationship, when I should not wear a longer beard as it "will look like being homeless". When that relationship broke up in 2015, I started growing it out. No plans, I just enjoyed my beard 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.) Beard and mustache are something which every man used to own in the long history of my country. Be it the climate conditions, be it as a symbol of respect. But due to western influence people started rejecting it. Since the day my beard started growing on my face, I never wanted to cut it. I was thrown out of my school, college. But it is something which is in my roots, in my soil, in my genes and I take pride in having a damn awesome beards.

But regardless it's amazing to see all these people come together a all for the love and respect of a beard.

My life living in Aruba I couldn't grow a beard for many reasons, plus in the Aruban heat you would never think to grow a beard. When we moved to NY a lot of my life had changed, so I decided it was the perfect timing to grow a beard .By being Bald from a young age I felt need for a little bit of hair. That's why I have grown a MEAN BEARD.

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.) I grew my beard to just have one. But since having one I've been apart of the best side of the beard community, the Charity side. I've traveled all over Texas to various competitions and charity events over the years helping others and changing lives. From kids to animals to fellow veterans, everyone deserves a little back up. Between helping others & making new friends, one thing I've learned over these years, size doesn't make the beard MEAN.
