Veteran Looks Like A Model After Shaving For The First Time In 12 Years

If you ask most men, they’ll tell you that growing a beard is a huge commitment.

My husband only grows his during the cold winter months, then he shaves it off when the weather starts to warm up. He doesn’t enjoy having extra hair on his face when it’s sweltering hot outside.

Frankly, I don’t like the beard at all, regardless of the season, but I’ve learned to compromise since he never keeps it for too long. Having a beard makes him look different and a little bit older. It also takes away from his nice features like his lips.

Not everyone will agree with my stance on beards, but there is at least one other woman, Heidi, who understands where I’m coming from.

Heidi’s boyfriend, Josh, stopped cutting his hair and shaving his beard after he was discharged from the military 12 years ago. The 38-year-old also wore the same outfit, made up of a white t-shirt, blue jeans, and boots, almost every day.

Heidi did not take an issue with the fact that Josh was growing out his hair, she simply asked for him to keep it neat and trimmed. She just wanted “him to be a little less hairy,” but that never happened, until Oprah Winfrey stepped in.

That’s right, the only way Heidi could convince Josh to switch up his look was by seeking out help from the Queen of Media.

It still took some more convincing, but the veteran finally agreed to a makeover.

“I dare you to make me look better than I do right now,” he told the team of expert stylists who were in charge of giving him a new look.

Project Runway star Tim Gunn was the lead stylist, and although he was faced with some challenges, he pulled it off in the end.

Josh now looks like a completely new man, in fact, he could probably pose for GQ magazine after his transformation.

Merman Calendar Raises $300,000 For Mental Health Charity

It was just supposed to be a bit of a joke, but what originally started out as a bit of fun turned into a worldwide phenomena that raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for mental health.

The Newfoundland and Labrador Beard and Mustache club decided that they would help raise funds for Spirit Horse N.L. which looks to enhance the lives of people suffering from mental illness, through therapeutic interaction with horses, and they did just that, in a very unique and creative fashion.

Hasan Hai (who doubled as Mr. January for the calendar shoot), a member of the Newfoundland and Labrador Beard and Mustache club, and the man responsible for getting the merman calendar off of the ground was ecstatic with the reception that the calendar received, as well as the positive impact they were making on the community.

“It’s incredibly rewarding,” said Hasan. “The dollar amount is significant and we know that we made a significant difference, not just in the lives of Erin, but in everyone she’ll help through Spirit Horse.”

Watching Gerard Butler Sobbing While Shaving His Beard Will Have You Crying (With Laughter) Along With Him

One thing has become clear, and that’s Gerard Butler has become very attached to his beard.

You see the 47-year-old Hollywood tough guy being reduced to tears as he has to clean up his look.

Growing out his scruff for the past year, he admits he hasn’t picked up a razor since last December.

It had been so long since he had to groom his beard, that the actor even forgot what “shaving” was called.

“So here I am about to…rare s–t. What do you call this? Shave? Shave my beard off after a year of having it on,” Butler told his fans on Instagram.


Thanks to a photo shoot for his new movie Hunter Killer, Butler was forced to shave his facial hair and he was not happy about it.

Sharing the emotional journey he went through on a video on his Instagram, we got to hear his true feelings about it.
