Celebrity Beard News

Description: Brad Pitt, Matt Damon and George ...Image via WikipediaStrange but true: celebrity beards are making the news!

First up, we have the hotly debated facial hair of Prince William. Those against the prince having whiskers can now breathe easy: returning from his Christmas break, his face was once again clean-shaven.

Next, we have the Pitt Goatee. Yes, the gossip has gone from pregnancy and Jenn/Angie wars to Brad’s facial hair.

Sir Tom Jones joined the likes of Hank Williams, Jr by using facial hair to cover scars, proving that facial hair is about more than an aversion to razors and shaving.

Several months ago, Sting’s gray beard was all over the news, including quotes about how much his wife enjoys his furry face. Some fans complained that the gray aged him, and now the news world is abuzz with talk of his newly dyed non-gray beard.

Speaking of singers and gray beards, Kanye West was none-too-happy when the February cover of US magazine featured a photo of him with a graying beard.

Finally, we have gossip magnet Spencer Pratt. Since his marriage to Heidi Montag one thing has changed for sure: he now is sporting a beard, apparently in a flesh-tone color (Though, it doesn’t look flesh-tone to me in photos).

Will all this buzz about beards begin a new trend in facial hair? Will facial hair become more acceptable in the work place, and will President Elect Obama suggest bailout funds for those, like himself, who cannot grow facial hair? We at the Greek Goddess of Men's Facial Hair certainly hope America and the world will come to embrace the furry face.

Beards and Politics

Abraham Obama by Ron EnglishImage by Laughing Squid via FlickrWhether its Prince William’s new look (with a beard) or President-Elect Obama’s inability to grow facial hair, politics and beards have been in the news lately. One example is in “The politics of beards” by Knute Berger.

When it comes to facial hair, what type of impression do you think it gives in the world of politics? President-Elect Obama professes an admiration of bearded president, Abraham Lincoln (with whom some compare him). If President-elect Obama could grow facial hair, do you think it would ruin his credibility – or do you think the fervor surrounding him would enable him to ‘get a pass’ on any negatives associated with facial hair?

Does facial hair make any difference to you in the world of politics? To some in the UK it does. To see a picture of the Prince with his beard and read an article questioning his ‘suitability to be king’ because of it, check out this article (with comments) in the Telegraph.

The Swerve – Men's Grooming Tool - New Product Review

As promised, here is a review of the Swerve, from my teen’s usage of the product.

He found the Swerve easy to use in almost all areas of his neck and face, except around the jaw/ear area and the smile creases along the corners of his mouth. I am not sure it was intended for facial shaving/grooming, but he tried it, anyway.

He loved the design and maneuverability. He had to use his other razor to get the places that the Swerve couldn’t get, but overall, he found it to be a great product he would recommend. He said it made shaving a LOT (he stressed ‘lot’) easier and quicker for him.

The product is priced very reasonably, and the design is lightweight and ergonomic.

For more information about the Swerve, please check out the official product website at:
