While I was in college I noticed a lot of dudes were growing beards. I guess from a puberty standpoint this makes sense, the super awkward years of high school are mostly over and you're coming to terms with being an "adult" and being a man, so why not grow a beard. Plus in college, for the most part, you feel like you can do whatever you want.
This still didn't make much sense to me, so I decided to make a mini documentary about it, or at least ask some dudes some questions about their beards and see what I learn. I focused on talking to young guys that were growing their first or close to first beard.
By making the documentary I did learn a decent amount about beards, mostly that guys thought they were cool and by having a beard it would make them cool. Or it was just out of laziness, which is also valid. I'm still not really into them. Now I'm with a dude who has a crazy huge beard, but at least it's for a good cause: art.
