Pierce Thiot has a magnificent beard, and he’s not afraid to use it … to store household items like toothpicks, spaghetti, straws, gummy worms, and lit matches. Pierce and his wife, Stacy, have started a Tumblr blog dedicated to these beardly feets called Will It Beard, which is full of photos of Pierce’s beard stuffed with various knick-knacks. The lit matches and razors are kind of freaking me out, but on the whole it’s a strangely charming photographic ode to the many uses of facial hair. [Junk Culture]
The concept is simple: Disney princesses with beards. I have no idea why the resulting images are so funny/entertaining, but they totally are. Check out Belle, Jasmine, Sleeping Beauty, and Mulan rocking their signature facial hair styles after the jump, and see the whole roster of bearded Princesses over at Buzzfeed. Keep reading »
My dream man is Paul Bunyon, so naturally my girl boner sprung to rapt attention upon seeing this photo (on left) of Maroon 5′s Adam Levine with a full, lush beard. When he’s not smiling, he’s almost unrecognizable, but oh my god, he looks so rough and burly. (Is it obvious that I haven’t had sex in a while? Sorry.)

But 16 Amish folks who are reportedly having “religiously-motivated” disputes over church discpline with the people they assault are snipping off beards with hoarse shears, scissors, and battery-powered clippers. Some female members of the Amish community have also had their hair cut off, which is also considered offensive. Keep reading »
An Arab ambassador to Dubai hastily tried to divorce his new bride after he lifted the niqab veil covering her face for the first time ever and saw his wifey was cross-eyed and sporting a beard. Aw, poor lady.

Finally, something hipster beards are good for: the five o’clock shadow exfoliation.
August Duben, owner and aesthetician at Spa Opilovat in Williamsburg, Brooklyn charges $125 for an exfoliating treatment in which he rubs his beard against a client’s skin. The catch is that August only performs this service on Mondays and Thursdays, when his stubble is at its stubbliest.
If some dude rubbing his chin against you for a Benjamin sounds dodgy, there’s always the $36 Bliss Lemon + Sage Body Scrub. After a couple beers, you could definitely get a hipster to rub his beard on you for free. [DailyCandy] Keep reading »
