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.
