Schick Razor Ad Campaign Compares Thick Beards To Rodents On Your Face: PHOTOS

Schick Beard Mammal campaign

On the one hand, the latest ad campaign for Schick razors is pretty brilliant. They collected men with prodigious, enviable beards and had stylists and/or Photoshop artists trim, weave, and shape the whiskers into remarkably lifelike small mammals curled around the models' chins. On the other hand, they're comparing having a full pelt of face-fur to having a rodent dangling from your nose and have accompanied the ads with the tag #FreeYourSkin.

Maybe my interpretation is off, but it seems like associating a beard with an adorable fluffy animal would actually encourage men to grow them out rather than shave them off. Whatever the intent, the beards are epic and the models aren't half bad either.

Study Asks, 'Has The Beard Trend Made Beards Less Attractive?'

Beardy

In a study of 1,453 bisexual or heterosexual women, researchers at the Australian University of New South Wales found that the more women were exposed to images of bearded men, the more likely they were to find clean-shaven men more attractive, and vice-versa.

The women were shown 36 images of men’s faces — “the first 24 pictures were exclusively of bearded or clean-shaven men, while the final twelve offered up a mix of facial hair styles.” As they viewed each picture, they were asked to rate each man’s attractiveness on a scale of four to negative four.

In a classic case of supply and demand, the women who saw lots of beards found themselves more attractive to men without them.

Head researcher Professor Robert Brooks said that men who grew beards to be more sexually attractive may have lost their allure as facial hair became more popular among other guys. “We may well be at peak beard,” he quipped.

But if you're a bearded man not trying to attract a female, please carry on just as you are, you bearded wonders.

Shirtless, Tatted, Bearded Tom Hardy Covers 'Esquire': PHOTOS

Hardy

Tom Hardy rips his shirt off for this month's Esquire in advance of his new film Locke, and tells the magazine that the rough image he projects isn't all he's cracked up to be:

"I have always been frightened with men. To the point where I couldn't go into a gym because of the testosterone and I felt weak. I don't feel very manly. I don't feel rugged and strong and capable in real life, not how i imagine a man ought to be. So I seek it, to mimic it and maybe understand it, or maybe to draw it into my own reality. People who are scary, they terrify me, but I can imitate them. I'm not a fighter. I'm a petite little bourgeosis boy from London. I don't fight, I mimic."
