My brother before-and-after beard. Thoughts?

10 Jun 2017

Beards have been in fashion for the last few years. Almost every single one of my cousins and male friends has a beard, especially the ones here in the Netherlands. 🙂 Opinions on facial hair are very divided, to say the least. People who don’t like beards usually say they’re too scruffy and unhygienic, but there are also people who love them because they say they’re masculine and exude confidence.

Growing out a beard can dramatically change a guy’s look. Shaving it off can even be more dramatic! Some say that beards make men’s faces look stronger and more masculine, while others argue that it all comes down to bone structure.

A few weeks ago I posted a guest blog written by a guy, discussing different types of beards. You can still check it out here. Do you think beards are unhygienic or do you think they’re masculine?

After having his beard for a while now (over a year), my brother Kenny, who is 26 years old, decided to shave it off the other day. He instantly regretted it, because he says he has a babyface now…

Below is his before-and-after shaving comparison picture. You be the judge! Let us know in the comments or on Facebook. By the way, he asked me to make sure to let you guys know these pictures were taken before styling his hair. 😀

What do you think? Should he have kept his beard?
