Real Minnesota Men: These are the best beards in Rochester

Real Minnesota Men: These are the best beards in Rochester


This is the result of 15 months without the razor. I’ve chosen to go unshaven for a few reasons. The first is bearding is about patience. You start out with a goal in mind and to get there you have to rely on knowing where you’re going and not just where you’re at. The second is commitment. It’s easy to shave; it’s easy to wake up one morning and decide to hack it all off. There are days that are tough. Maintaining damage control and keeping a beard healthy takes serious self control. It applies to a lot of things in life. That’s why I beard.
— James D.
