The Art of Grooming

Know your Limits

The Gentleman above is Xabi Alonso.  A spanish footballer currently playing for Real Madrid.  Xabi has quite arguably one of the top three beards in the world.  Just look at it.  To the left.  Xabi is sans beard.  He looks pensive, vulnerable, and not at all confident.  To the right.  Self-assured, cocky, and handsome.

However, Xabi is an outlier.  His beard is downright perfect.  It takes a special jaw to pull off something so majestic.  Personally, if I tried to grow a beard it would come in all patchy and disheartening.  As a result, I would be pensive, vulnerable and not at all confident.  A gentleman knows the limits of his facial hair and uses it to maximize his aura.
