In February of 2012, I headed to Portland, OR for the 2012 West Coast Beard & Mustache Championships. I was about 8 months into my yeard and was competing in my first beard competition. It was at this event that I first experienced the bearded lifestyle at its fullest and simply put; I fell in love. Shortly after that event, I launched Beardbrand as a way to unite beardsmen and build a community. We first started off with a blog, a YouTube channel, and a Tumblr blog. On these platforms I shared my knowledge about growing a beard and provided style inspiration for others. Ultimately, the goal was to provide the tools necessary for men to feel confident about growing their beard, and I also wanted to end the negative stereotypes about beardsmen being lazy or unkempt.
