Health & Beauty | 14 October 2016This Bearded Life snapshot: To beard or not to beard in 2016? Share article facebook twitter google pinterest To beard or not to beard? That is the question…and a very important one at that. Blogger/journalist Carles Suñe is here with the (obvious) answer in his new book This Bearded Life. Beards have been worn by men since the beginning of civilization, but in today’s current fashion climate they have come to denote a specific male class. Some people consider beards merely a fashion accessory, but Suñe knows that having a beard is more than that…it is a way of life. A witty collection of anecdotes, reflections, guidance and recommendations about beards and everything that comes with them; This Bearded Life takes us on a bearded journey. Joining forces with Suñe is instagram-famous illustrator Alfonso Casas, who are both here to portray life on the other side of the beard and shout to the world that “A beard is more than just facial hair; it’s an attitude; the cornerstone of masculinity” With over 200 images and illustrations, here is a selection of some of our favourites from This Bearded Life: This Bearded Life is available from October 15th 2016.
