This #proveit edition comes from:
- Wisconsinite Joshua “I like to keep it real” Wieters (aka @Jowie85).
I don’t know if he was tweeting with me AND taking pictures to #proveit while driving or if this is a stock photo from the past when he was taking photos and driving… in either case, we know you want to #proveit hard, but you gotta be safe bro, we may want that beard-y goodness of yours around for the concluding Decembeard #proveit edition.
Keep your eyes on the road and your ‘it’ real, man, we’ll be around.
See Matt's argument here:
I only ask that people with mustaches and goatees be prohibited from entering the Beard Ball.
Let me explain:
You see, the mustache and goatee are the fanny- pack and visor of the facial hair world.
1. Fanny-packs: if you have a lot of stuff to carry; get a backpack. If you don't; just put it in your pockets. There is no reason to have a fanny- pack.
2. Visors: either wear a hat or wear a headband. There doesn't have to be a middle option for this.
Shave everything or shave nothing. Go beard or go home!
Well, Matthew, as much as we would love to hire my 6'7" brother to work the door & instill this rule, we're open to all sorts of facial hair creativity. We don't judge at B-A-B... o.k. that's not entire true... but on this night.... let us remember.... if you're judging, you're not loving.
It's for charity for Christ's sake!
Nice beard & camouflage cut-off!

Today's #proveit champion is Ben (or @okbeatnik) from Tulsa, OK, who documented the growth of an awesome beard for 2 months worth of competition at work. Apparently there are about 5 days left to go in the competition...we are behind you Ben, onward and upward!
Also, sounds like a swell place to work, beard competitions and all... any openings?

In this economy everyone is worried about their credit score, the possible loss or theft of identity, piling up credit card bills, late the credit card payments and of course the associated rates that drain our finances without fail each month… as such we here at Build-a-Beard wanted to provide our readers with a safe, trusted and hairy option of whom to trust in this turbulent environment.
As you can see, the beardo below used to swim in credit card debt, but he was able to lower his interest rate and get help with his monthly payment dates… he never thought that he’d be able to pay down his credit card bills, but he was able to join thousands of Americans who have gotten out of debt… and so can you.

As we get deeper into the holiday season, we here at Build-a-Beard encourage you to endorse our petition (official petition not included) for support of facial fluff for all mankind (we take the ‘man’ part seriously)… This year, please consider making growing a BEARD your failed New Year Resolution.
Due to this cynicism, we always have to stand up, recognize and support those brethren that are indeed fighting the good fight, sticking to it and following up/following through. So... Hello, unkempt, mega beard that's been around since January 1st, 2009, and the 20 y/o NYU student, with interests in Stockholm, that you are attached to. We salute you!

Do we accept texting of facial goodness here at build-a-beard? If you know us, sure! If you know someone who knows us and asks them to text your newly trimmed beard while out drinking with them in
This BK beardo says he hasn’t used a razor in 4 years! Well done, nameless beardexting stranger. Let’s get to know each other, I like your flannel…

Here's our proof and formal request to Jim -- We want to interview your beard! What inspired you to grow? Do you enjoy being on Jim's face? Do the ladies love you? Etc. Etc. Have your people call our... humble staff.
(PS: We still admire your work from the In Living Color days, btw).

And although the highly talented Gary has been saturating our airwaves and personal NYC island with ways to "cash in on your passion," he is not crushing it when it comes to his beard. In fact, he should prob stop concentrating so much on how to help others "build brand equity," and start concentrating on ways to grow a 'stache.... or even some scruff! #crushitFAIL
Gillette users - your days are numbered. Welcome to the bearded side.
