The beard has made a comeback in recent years, what was once considered the mark of bikers and woodsmen is seeing a resurgence with gentlemen across the country. Even the world of advertising has caught onto the bearded lifestyle with billboards that attach directly to a man's prized facial hair.
Eric Bandholz started growing his beard in May in 2011. He was originally aiming to grow his facial locks for a year. It's been two years since his face has seen the sun and Bandholz has fully embraced what he calls the urban beardsman lifestyle.
When Bandholz heard rumor of beardboards through his bearded brothers he entered his six inch long, red beard for consideration. He was one of about 25 people selected to wear Beardvertising's beardboards, patent pending, and Bandholz has been having a blast with it.
