Men with “Holiday Beards” is Now a Thing

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news


This amazing and beautifully ridiculous project was conceived, art-directed, and written by Katie Nash and photographed by Anna-Alexia Basile. It is fantastic!

Happy Holi-Dudes!

The word on the street is that the beard ‘trend’ is on it’s way out, but it seems the look is still hanging on, literally, to hipster chins all over the country. To add a little seasonal flare to the facial fashion statement, we adorned some of our favorite dudes with holiday-inspired mug rugs. Move over ugly sweaters, there’s a new kid in town (a kid with surprisingly full facial hair…boy they grow up fast). Check out these festive fellas in our photo essay and have a Hairy Christmas!


The Hanukkah Hunk: Spinning Dreidels. Turning Heads. We’ve got a whole latke love for this look.


The Noble Fur: A Christmas Classic. Tightly trimmed, gift wrapped, giving Charlie Brown some competition.

The Bristly Griswold: Perfect for the guy who has everything. No brah-humbugs here.


The Silver-Flocked Fox: Better than a Douglas Fir, this look is both mature and can last forever.
