Since the dawn of time there has always been facial hair trends…believe it or not. This trend was not created by social media but by kings and queens. “Like many other social customs, the history of beards and beard growth has been fascinatingly diverse, enjoying periods of widespread popularity and other times of relative disfavor. The popularity of growing facial hair in ancient times was much more attributable to its practicality than to any sense of fashion.” said

It is believed that the evolution of facial hair and beards may actually have something to do with intimidating predators and anyone else that may cause harm to their life. It was also a bonus for colder weather since body hair grows mostly to keep our bodies warm. Seems like it makes sense!

Nowadays facial hair is a lot less primitive and a lot more about style. Some men choose to forgo facial hair as it can be seem as unkempt and unprofessional – but now with regular maintenance from your local barber, facial hair can be easy and…dare I say it…professional!
