Wearing a beard is one of life’s great pleasures …

woodsman‘Wearing a beard is one of life’s great pleasures. It’s a look that says, “Yes, I’m a man. I’ll chop down a tree and wrestle a bear for you – and then I’ll wrap you up in my arms and rock you to sleep. And I’m probably quite good at IT and pouring artisan coffee too.”

As a member of the bald-but-bearded community, I afford young swells the opportunity to address me as “Mr Upside-Down Head”. Others among them like to call me “Badger Beard” on account of the distinguished white that is an increasingly prominent feature of my face.

We all chuckle and then we make friends.

Yet ecstasy turned to agony when I contemplated the state of my skin under The Magnificence. It would itch and it would flake. It seemed like a price worth paying in order to look so dang handsome, but it was very irritating (quite literally).

Then along came The Audacious Beard Co. A few dabs of The Woodsman beard oil and I smelt divine, my beard felt heavenly … and the flaky skin was gone.

One day I shall look down from the mountaintop, king of all I survey, and say to myself, “The day that I started to treat my beard as lovingly as others treat it is the day that everything started to come good.”

Feed the beard

“Keeps the beard (and eyebrows) under control – This stuff is great!”
“I slap some on then warm it up with the wife’s hair dryer whilst brushing my magnificent beard. Smells great for the rest of the day. Out of all the things I’ve thrown at my beard , this beard balm has been my favourite, both to use and to smell.”
“Smells great, easy to apply and makes my beard feel great. Have used beard oil before but think I will stick to the balm from now on! Also being solid and small it’s very easy to carry with me every day.”
“Great stuff, really softened the beard up and moisturised the skin so it was not itchy….”
-Thanks guys for your Audacious feedback :)#

The Audacious Shampoo Bar Winners

wolfeWolfe Sunday  loved reading all the entries and with great difficulty has chosen the winners.
Marc Shinner was chosen as the overall winner because of how he demonstrated the dedication involved in keeping an Audacious beard.
The runners up for their very Audacious entries were Ruth Zorichak and Samm Smith.
A huge Audacious thank you to everyone who entered, we loved them all !
If you want to catch Wolfe Sunday he is performing next at the Fiddler’s elbow in Camden, London on the 25th September.

Marc Shinner ‘My beard makes people stop in awe, which sends them into a spiral of jealousy and self loathing due to the trenches of skin along their cold faces being too hostile to grow beautiful bristles. And then my alarm goes off, it’s 4am and the realisation that I have to drive 35 miles to work dawns on me, I shift myself too the edge of the bed, scratching my beard thinking “this needs a decent shampoo to sort it, I’ll work extra hours to afford it” the vicious cycle repeats, a whirlwind of alarms, dreams and beard scratching, and finally a day off where I go into a city and people stop in awe of my beard but as they talk to me they’re only making one sound over and over and I’m awake. It’s 4am.’

Ruth Zorichak ‘My beard is frankly more like fluff ,
But I don’t like my chin in the buff ,
As a woman I see that my beard just won’t be,
But to have one would bring so much glee!
I’m being completely audacious,
but the beard craze is really contagious,
My fiance Kevs beard is a joy
And it’s clearly a man’s not a boy,
It delights me all hours of the day,
He would love the soap if I may,
Then we’ll clean it and groom it and foam it and brush it and his audacious beard will be here to stay!’

Samm Smith ‘My beard may not be the longest, nor be the perfect shape. However it is still capable of being the center of attention during any conversation. It has its own gravitational field, pulling in general questions and compliments from anyone who glances at it. Once the questions have past there’s always those who ask to feel the extension of hair which grows from my face. They then fall silent in amazement due to the pure soft and smooth feel which is not commonly known to those beard hears. So they ask one more question: “what do you do to make your beard so soft?” Well non bearded one, I’ve use The Audacious Beard Co products everyday to keep this fluff in perfect order!’
