For centuries now, men have chosen to shun the razor in favor of growing, and styling, their facial growth. Whether this was for vanity, culture or religious regions, most of us don’t even give a guy with a beard a second thought. The Bearded Gentleman ($10) is a lighthearted yet authoritative guide offering detailed info on some 50 different specific styles of facial hair, who knew there were so many? It tells us where they came from, ho to grow them and also how to maintain them. All the old favorites are here, and well as the newcomers, and anyone who treats ‘shave’ as a dirty word will love this book.
