mourning of the beard...

Posted on: 1.07.2013





















When I first met Trevor he had hair almost as long as mine and a full beard, a beautiful full beard :) I was smitten, obviously. Don't ask my why but I have always loved long haired and bearded men, the hairier the better! So you can understand my complaints I have with BYU. For those of you who aren't aware, students attending BYU are not allowed to have any facial hair and have to have shorter hair cuts. 

Apparently the Law School is a little more lax on this requirement, but Trevor still can't go certain places and take tests or use the gym facilities at the school etc. with a beard. Why is a clean face considered better when it comes to professionalism? I would personally go back to the old days where most men had beards! *le sigh*  

To make it worse Trevor's facial hair grows back so fast, that he can shave in the morning and by the end of the day have a 5 o'clock shadow again! So the poor guy is having to constantly shave and irritate his skin.

Anyways, just wanted to get my complaints out there and say that I am mourning the loss of the "the beard" today. Trevor had to go back to school and he shaved it all off this week :( I LOVED having the beard back over Christmas break, and I already miss him.

I just want my beard back.



68 little notes:

  1. My husband goes to BYU and in November he grew out a mustache for no shave November because they can have mustaches at BYU but mustaches are worse than beards I think!

    1. so random they let them have mustaches and not beards, right?! haha Oh well, and yes, I agree, I am not a fan of mustaches, although trevor has had some gnarly ones in the past haha

  2. My boyfriend grows hair so fast too! He will shave and the next day I ask him the last time he's shaved because the hair has already come back so much!

    I never knew that it was a rule at BYU that you couldn't have facial hair though!

  3. OH I KNOW. A beard is a requirement for our marriage.

  4. I know how you feel! Dave can't have a beard in the military and it makes me so sad. So on weekends he gets to go without shaving and it makes me so incredibly happy!

  5. My husband's beard grows back within the hour. It's hot, but I love him clean shaven so much.
    And agreed with Camille. I hate the stache!

  6. No beard while going to BYU?! What on earth?! And if you love beards you should see my husbands! He hasn't shaved since July and it is insane how long it is, haha. At this point it is just for pure humor

  7. and I am with you, I LOVE beards on men!

  8. Ha ha!! Trevor is lucky to have you :) Eric wishes I was this way... but shaving day is my FAVORITE day!

    1. Well he should be happy because you do let him keep the flavor savor though... which to be honest I wouldn't let trevor have as much as I do love facial hair! haha

  9. That's such a funny rule, esp. that he can have a beard for class but not for tests?! I like the short haircut rule though, wish that had been in effect at my college ;)

  10. The older I get, the more I love a guy with facial hair. Definitely beards though, and not just a mustache!

    I would be sad, too!

    1. True, beards and mustaches are totally different haha

  11. That's so odd that they don't allow facial hair. My husband is loving his burly beard. He hasn't shaved since October. He's really in to Duck Dynasty, so he would love it if he could grow something similar to theirs ha!

    1. hahah I LOVE that show! I told Trevor I would totally let him grow one out like that sometime! hahaha I think it would be hilarious! "happy happy happy"

  12. That is such an interesting rule! I've never heard of a college enforcing a rule of that sort - I can only imagine how that would've changed things at my college (in Maine, where the lumberjack look is so in!). I personally love a good "sweet lax flow" with a bit of scruff - also looked down upon in the profesh world. When we graduated & my boyfriend had a to get a dorky professional haircut, I was devastated!

    1. I guess they implemented it in the 70's haha But what is even funnier is the guy who founded the school and they have his statue everywhere has a big ol' beard :) haha I just love the irony!

  13. Caleb is the same way, he will have a 5 o clock shadow after he shaved the morning before! Craziness. I can't believe they don't allow clean shaven faces, doesn't seem right! ;) I love me a good beard. Caleb is obsessed with growing a mustache. I told him he can AFTER we tie the knot this May ;)

  14. You make me laugh. I love it. I've always been a fan of my husband's scruff. He looks like a little child when he shaves it all off!

  15. Sometimes rules/law just make no sense at all! I think there is a city in the midwest where it is illegal to sing in the shower...or something odd like that! Maybe I am just like you and love a beard on a man and so this would make me upset as well haha!

    ReplyDelete
  16. No beard card, eh? If it's super irritating, maybe he could try for one. All I know is I'd prefer beards to mustaches! But then again, it prevents those billy-goat beards that look like pit hair hanging off their chins...so maybe it's worth the sacrifice ;)

    1. We have talked about trying to get one for the sake of the irritation he gets having to shave so much!

  17. Aw man, I love facial hair too, that's a bummer...there's something to be said about scruff, though. I like being able to see the outline of a guy's jaw underneath that facial hair, you know? Also, my boyfriend can grow a mean mustache...I can't decide which I like better. =]

    1. Oh don't get me wrong, I do like me a god 5 o'clock shadow :) Basically I just want some hair on the face!! haha

  18. i personally love a clean-shaven man face. i love the soft skin when we nuzzle. haha my husband knows that if he has his "scratchy goatee" (he cant grow a beard)that i cant kiss him, because it tickles too much!

    sorry you have to mourn for it though. just think. summer isnt really THAT far away, right? :)

  19. I hated that when Eric was going to BYU. I think he looks much more handsome/more professional with some clean cut scruff! So we both enjoyed less shaving after he graduated......now he's got a job where facial hair isn't allowed. Bleh!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I hate facial hair on my man! When my husband did the New Testament project in 2012 and 2011, I thought I would die. It was a full-on wilderness man beard. Granted, he wasn't allowed to groom it at all, period, which was hard. I don't mind a tiny bit of scruff but it honestly hurts my face and lips to kiss it.

    The weirdest thing about BYU's facial hair rules (and I graduated from BYU, don't worry) is that you ARE allowed to have a mustache, even a pedophile pencil 'stache, but not a beard. WHY?!!!! My twin brother tried to be funny and grew out a 'stache when we were there. He looked hideous.

  24. i think there is something chemically wrong with me. if my husband goes 2 days without shaving i get legitimately upset. this year he tried to do No Shave November and i raged. mostly it's because his facial hair comes in patchy and gross and it's really more of a neard (neck beard) than a beard. and i just hate it. if he were to let it go without shaving he would end up looking like John Taylor (the prophet. google it.)

    1. hahahaha Kate this had me rolling! haha Most girls I think feel the way you do about facial hair!

  25. Haha I love this post! I think facial hair is hot. It just seems very manly. Like a woodsy manly man who could go chop down a tree or build you a house or protect you if you were danger. Does that make any sense?

    I'm sorry the beard is gone, Alycia. That seems like such a silly rule.

    1. So true! You have to be able to actually grow it! haha my two brothers are total baby faces and when they try and grow beards it just comes out all patchy and really fine hair that is just looks bad hahaha

  28. Oh man, I wish my husband had some reason that he had to shave, because he only shaves about once a week or less and I don't like the scratchiness! He's a nurse--apparently they don't have to look nearly so professional. :P

    ReplyDelete
  29. That's so strange! I've never actually heard of that before, but now that I think about it, it does make sense! Personally, I think a beard looks just as professional but maybe that's just me.

  30. Ha. This cracks me up! Travis and I were just talking about facial hair on Saturday and how icky we think it is. All I can think when I see men with beard is that they're full of food and crumbs. Anyway, all of his brothers have facial hair and Travis and I both find it grodie. And I even said "What woman likes facial hair? I just don't get that." Ha!

    1. hahaha honestly I have seen food in trevor's beard ONCE & it was when it was really really long! :) hahaha You don't even like a nice trimmed up facial hair?

  31. My husband can grow a full on bushy man beard in five minutes, I swear. hahah I like it once it hits beard or a few days of scruff. but I hate having to kiss him the first few days when it hurts. haha

    1. yes, when it is just the stubble it can be painful. when trevor and I were dating I use to get a red rash all over my face hahaha :X

  32. Aww :( Sorry for your loss ;)
    I like my man with a little scruff too. Though some times it hurts my soft little cheeks and if he knows he's seeing me the next day. he shaves just for me. SO thoughtful ;)
    I can't imagine mine with long hair too. Since he was in the military for so long he likes his short hair, I don't complain. I like him just as he is ;)

    1. haha yeah, trevor didn't keep the long hair for very long, wish he had though! haha :) &yes, when it is just barley there it can hurt to make out with haha

  33. Ok, I'm so glad I'm not the only one! I'm all for scruff and it seriously is a major downer about BYU. But oh well, we deal because it's a good education at a dirt cheap price- right? Good to find a like-minded beard lover!

  34. Such a cute photo of the two of you. :)

  35. mustache but no beard? weirdness. My manfriend has a beautiful beard and I get so sad every time he threatens to shave it.

    1. "Happy happy happy!" Hahaa the duck dynasty beards would be something I let trevor do, but might be a tad long for permanent stay hahaa :) but it would be fun!

  37. He looks great with a beard! My hubby usually has one and I prefer it. I think he would go nuts if he went somewhere that wouldn't let him keep his beard!

  39. Once we graduated from BYU, Cory started sporting facial hair just cuz he could. And he definitely needs to get a beard card if he has to shave that often. Look into that :)

    ReplyDelete
  40. I think he should get a beard card. Beard aside....I think his hair looks great and his cowlick is down :)

  42. You can totally take all of the hairy guys. I like clean shaven, neat haircut, and as little body hair as possible. That's just me. :)

  43. Haha! I feel the same way! I love my guy's beard...thankfully it's around all year!

    Here's hoping that the beard comes back soon!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Oh.. even being a member I didn't know abot this BYU rule!

    When I dated my husband, he clean shaved every day... Then after dating me for a while I kinda let him know that men with a bristle look sexy... And oh man, he looks soooo good with it =)))))) Fortunately he lets it grow much more often now =))) So whenever he clean shaves I miss that bristle again =))))

  45. I love that you love his beard so much.:)
