After months of discussion and casual joking, dear Julie and I have decided that we actually are going to harass random men with facial hair on the street in our attempts to understand the complexities of the beard.
We could limit this to Austin seeing as how this is a city where even in the triple digit temperatures of July there are more guys walking around with beards than not it seems. However, we hope to extend it past that into a project that will take us from the hipster hangout down the street all the way to Shamrock, Texas for the St. Patty’s beard contest and beyond.
If you or someone you know has a beard and would like to earn the title of Bearded Beauty please let us know. Don’t be surprised if we ask you what your beard’s favorite song is.
