Beard Today, Goatee Tomorrow

John Dyer has dedicated plenty of blog-space to beards. And why shouldn't he? Beards are the best things that men can grow. Like most real men, John grows a robust beard each winter. Each spring when it's time to shave, he tries to see how many facial hair variants he can achieve-Van Dykes, handlebars, etc.-using this beard chart as his guide. You'll notice that he doesn't plan to attempt a toothbrush mustache, which Charlie Chaplin made famous, and which one person of lesser esteem made forever unwearable. Unless, that is, you're the former president of Ecuador.
