CINCINNATI - What better way to celebrate Beard Week than to introduce you to the Cincinnati man who has a beard for every occasion?
But first, remember Movember? Men around the Tri-State (and, in fact, around the world) grew facial hair in "No-shave November" as a way to raise awareness about men's health issues. You may know a man who decided to keep going--and growing.
Are beards in or out? Opinions vary: On April 15, none other than The Guardian warned that beards may have peaked in popularity. Closer to home, a January 13 Columbus Dispatch headline proclaimed, "Beards growing in popularity among men."
Facial hair pundit prognostications aside, WCPO decided to explore the issue of beards. We hereby declare April 20 through April 27, "Beard Week."
The hashtag is #beardweek
