The beard, it seems, is back. Men who once flirted with the floating goatee and the soul patch have thrown out the razor in exchange for the full-on beard. That’s not big news here in New Hampshire, where many men sport a beard for extra warmth. But facial hair is now "in" for the urban set.
Sean Donnelly and Chris Rubino of the website Bearduary joined Word of Mouth host Virginia Prescott to discuss the phenomenon. Their slogan? "In times of inclement weather when the wind bites and snarls, the landscape turns into bleak unforgiving tundra and the sun sets before the start of happy hour, a true gentleman grows a beard."
