Fear not the Hipster Beard- for it too shall pass!
If you haven’t been outdoors for a few years, you might not have noticed that beards are back. The days of the well-groomed metrosexual man might soon be over as the “lumbersexual” trend takes precedence.
The lumbersexual man is essentially an urban woodsman. He is brawny, wears expensive flannel, has an impressive beard that is painstakingly unkempt and represents the ultimate sense of manliness. The look of the lumbersexual man can be described as something similar to a hipster-outdoorsman hybrid. However, you won’t find him in the forest chopping down trees. The lumbersexual man traded in his days of tree felling for hitting up hipster bars, and instead of wielding an axe, he now carries around a MacBook Pro and hits the gym 4-5 days a week!
- It’s a look of carefully calculated manliness.
- You have to love the outdoors.
- Having tattoos doesn’t hurt either.
- Wear expensive flannel and leather boots, and of course denim.
- Taking selfies with a tough, manly expression is also a must.
- Can’t forget the perfect, rugged beard.
- Oh, and whiskey is necessary.
- As well as beer.
