2016 the end of the beard…? Course not! 

I’ve read in recent weeks that 2016 will be the end of the beard, if you’re reading media publications and taking what they say as gospel then enjoy following the next “fad”. This story came about after some historian has decided to run a three year research project on the beard and its cultural history, again I’m not sure how that can determine the downfall of the beard…. If you want to grow a beard, then do it. 

This is my first post in a long time, I really should blog more. In the coming weeks I’ll be looking at everything beard and male lifestyle again, think I might look at some tips for beard growers who aren’t 100% happy with what they can grow whether that’s a patchy beard or face fluff. 

Anyway, I’ll leave it there for now. Expect a proper post in the coming days.

How to be a better man 

This is my 10 ways to being a better man, I try to follow these as best as possible. Hopefully you can find something helpful in here. 

1 – Be a gentleman, hold the door for a lady (f*ck those extreme feminists), offer up your seat, buy her a drink, pay for your evening out… You know the stuff. If it would upset your mother, then don’t do it. 

2 – Learn how to cook…even if it’s some basic dishes, perfect them and you’ll be on to a winner. 

3 – Learn how to make things, just some basic DIY will do, you don’t have to be an engineer. 

4 – Always be honest to yourself and others, real men don’t let other people take the blame for your errors. 

5 – Don’t have a massive ego, be modest and don’t point out every small achievement. 

6 – Get a style unique to you and have a great wardrobe, you can kit your wardrobe out with some basic pieces and can go from there. (https://thebeardedgentlemanblogs.wordpress.com/2014/09/29/wardrobe-essentials-for-the-alternative-gent/)

7 – learn about the planet we walk upon. Some basic history and knowledge can go a long way. 

8 – Always look after your family and friends, back them up when needed. Without them you are nothing 

9 – Learn to be a leader. Lead how you would like to be led. Learn to listen and think through your actions before you proceed to do anything. Be fair and loyal to those that stick with you. 

10 – Maintain a healthy lifestyle as best you can. You don’t have to be a fitness fanatic, just learn to do things in moderation.
