Whiskers are for everyone
Taumarunui’s bearded Man talks to reporter ‘‘It's ultimately how you wear it and how it fits you.’’ Mark Wilson
can eat and drink.
‘‘Mayonnaise and curry isn’t fun.
‘‘Straws and takeaway coffee cups are good and eating sandwiches as triangles is a funny one.’’
He also carries a tub of wax just in case.
The brothers have started up The Bearded Establishment group, promoting it on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to promote the culture and lifestyle.
People are encouraged to post pictures of their beards over a week sio they can see the difference.
Wilson has competed in beard competitions and has also been asked to judge.
‘‘The culture is growing in New Zealand and we like to say do one year without a shave and you’ll be really shocked what you can grow.’’
Beards come in all shapes and sizes and Wilson has tried a few.
He has decided to go caveman and leave his beard to gravity so he can achieve the Gandalf look from Lord of the Rings.
‘‘It’s nice to get support from the brothers and lets face it, we’ve all been told to shave and we’ve all been told we look homeless.
‘‘There are other ways to make it look groomed and well presented.
Mark Wilson encourages more men to grow their beards.
