The beard-transplant trend

"A full beard is very much a statement look, and it goes in and out of fashion,” Dr Bessam Farjo, who pioneered the world’s first hair transplant in 1996, tells the Daily Mail.“For the last 12 to 18 months, there has been a noticeable rise in the number of men coming to my practice wanting to fill in bald patches or thicken wisps of hair. Whilst many men may be looking for full fop of facial fuzz, the majority of patients seeking facial hair transplantation do so to fill gaps and create ‘designer stubble’. The majority of men are looking to create a designer stubble look which seems incredibly popular nowadays. That being said, all it takes is for one recognised face to show off a new look for men to start considering their own facial hair. [Jeremy] Paxman has become this summer’s talking point and it will be interesting to see whether his rugged new look sparks a trend among older men, in particular. Brad Pitt’s beard is often cited by men in their 40s, and David Beckham’s by men in their 20s and 30s. Perhaps we’ll see ‘The Paxman’ become the next hot look for men in their 50s and 60s!"

GILF Jeremy Paxman’s new beard has gotten him a lot of attention.

Brad Pitt. Don’t you just want him to put on an eye patch and fuck you like a pirate who hasn’t seen a woman in two years?

David Beckham: the pretty-boy beard.
