Special day to celebrate beards


FROM the humble goatee to the comforting chin curtain, there is a facial hair style for every man.

And what better way to show off your regrowth than with World Beard Day, which is celebrated tomorrow.

The inaugural event was a novel idea from a bearded group from Adelaide who thought what better way to show off your whiskers than having a day full of entertainment and facial hair appreciation.

It’s the brainchild of a quirky member of band The Beards, who claims beards are crucial to our enjoyment of life.

So do you have “mutton chops” or a “chin strip”? A “balbo” or a “soul patch”?

Whether it’s a fashion statement, act of laziness or essential central heating, Saturday, September 4 is the day to wear it proud.

The Daily News wants to celebrate your beard, so send us your photos and nominate the Rose City’s best beard.

Check out tomorrow’s edition for our fantastically fun Guess the Beard feature.

Send your photos to or call into the Daily News office to show us your facial fuzz!
