Vanja Mrgan has imagined what different famous characters would look like with beards. From Robocop to He-Man to Batman to Wario to Popeye to Porky Pig to Boba Fett to Snoo—Reddit's alien mascot—they all look quite cool. Some even better than the real thing (like Popeye, Wario, and even Batman!)
Everybody's heard of hair plugs, but did you realize you could get a full beard transplant? A growing number of men in New York and elsewhere are catching on. It's apparently becoming a very popular thing to do, especially in hipster-packed neighborhoods like Williamsburg and Bushwick.
If you're a beard lover—and, hey, these days who isn't?—then here's the font for you, because it's made exclusively from images of facial hair.
In the competitive electric razor market it's more than just the number of blades that makes one model better than another. For example, Panasonic's new ES-LV65-S packs a five-blade cutting system, but that's not why those of us with impossibly thick beards will want one. The razor's also got a built-in sensor that…
Photographer Greg Anderson recently returned from the National Beard and Mustache Championships held in New Orleans. You're not going to believe the things that some guys can do with their facial hair.
If you're absolutely fanatical about keeping the lines of your beard or goatee clean and symmetrical, you probably tossed your old razor after seeing that Philips is introducing a trimmer with a built-in laser-projected guide. The StyleXpert Beardtrimmer 9000 takes your obsessive grooming routine to the next level;…
After growing out a full mop of facial hair, Ben Garvin decided that a good beard should never go to waste. So he picked up his iPhone and carefully stitched together this remarkable stop motion film.
A newly published study out of the University of New South Wales concludes that men and women perceive men with facial hair to be more attractive and better father-material than clean-shaven ones. WHO'S THE DISAPPOINTMENT NOW, MOTHER?
They say the truest test of a man is his ability to grow and maintain facial hair. Admittedly, I have no idea who "they" are in this instance, but its obvious why they're preoccupied with what happens above and below a man's lips — it can make the difference between shame and dignity, between class and boorishness,…
Behold the Spider-Man-themed beard of Chad Roberts, who understandably won the recent 2nd Annual Garden State Beard And 'Stache Competition, held by the Garden State Beard and Mustache Society. I can only assume the judges deemed the beard amazing, spectacular and probably even superior.
SadDaysCrochet is currently winning the Internet with the unbelievably awesome "Dwarven Helm" crochet she made, which she's shown modeling above, for her brother. And deservedly so — I think anybody could mercilessly hack their way through a troop of orcs as long as he/she was wielding a decently sharp axe and…
Under the rule of Russian tsar and notorious beard-hater Peter the Great - which ran from 1682-1725 - men sporting facial hair were subjected to a beard tax that afforded them a token informing strangers that they were honest, tax-paying hairballs. As Erik Jensen explains in a 2003 article from the journal Tax Notes:
Somewhere, in a very different galaxy far, far away, the Rebel Alliance took down the first Death Star in X-Wings made primarily of beards and mustaches. Redditor BanditRaccoon posted this beardfighter photo, one of the few pieces of fanart we've seen sculpted from facial hair.
Every man grows a beard at some point in his life. But that's not to say that it's a good idea. In fact, science now confirms that while a beard makes you look older and of higher status, it makes you less attractive to women.
Shaving a giant beard can be traumatic—it's like a large bear companion that's lived on your face for a while. So as a tribute to his, this fellow reversed the whole process, going from skinhead to magnificently-maned caveman.
Hey man, got a great idea for Easter Jam 2011. Let's give a guy with a crazy beard an electric dog collar, have him bark, and watch him get shocked over and over again. Oh and an actual dog should pop into the frame at some point, representing the only voice of reason in this whole sordid mess.
Shockingly cheap Apple tablets, Twitter books, Google power plants, Samurai Mario and a bunch of things that didn't make the cut today. Some of it we didn't like, and some are fun gems from our (riveting!) staff chat room.
If you're like us, you lay awake at night wondering, "What if Batman had a beard?" Well wait no longer! We've got a gallery of the most heroic super beards ever.
