Facial Hair Through the Ages

Few things are as important in remembering a man then how he cut his chin.

God set the trend a few years back. Lots of facial hair is definitely in for the foreseeable future.

The Egyptians pioneered the chin art.

Others focused more on the upper lip so as to say "ooh look at me, I've got a fancy hat"

Many attribute the rise and fall of communism simply to their failure to maintain the appeal, diversity, innovatiness and size of their hairum facium.

Some have taken it to the next level, to its logical and perfectible conclusion.

Much like other arts, hobbies and sports there has clearly been some relaxation of the term "facial" in recent years, to the detriment of some veterans.

But no one will be able to deny the eternal appeal, wonder and delight of, uh, beards.
