Given the opportunity, I figured I would try out a few different beard styles as I shaved it all off:
Here is the full beard. I look like I spend waaay too much time alone.
This is my favorite style. 19th century British gentleman, like a boss:
I call this the hard-ass handlebar (I look like an idiot):
And to top it all off, the porn ‘stache. Dear God, I look awful with a mustache.
I don’t have a final pic clean shaven, but I have to say, when I got rid of that big beard, I did feel like a new man. I think this will be a tradition for a long time as it was a great way to add a little more of the experiential to Easter. Next year, I hoping an army of men from my church will grow beards with me.
