Yes, the world keeps evolving. Including fashion, but then there are people that admire the old school fashion.
However, would we consider the beard trend as an old school while the world continues to evolve? Don’t answer that question and continue reading.
Why do people Keep Beards?
Why do people especially Men keep beards? At a time of your life, you must have wondered and asked that question.
Well, today you will get your answer,
The following are reasons why so many black men keep beards (Facial hairs);
This is one of the core reasons why a lot of men sport beards. Sexy beards in other words. We both know that shy beardless guy will find it hard talk to that pretty lady or even take the beautiful girl next to her home compared to the bearded god.
Men who sport beards tend to do it for dominance, to dominate. the beard kind of boost their self-confidence and manly appearance.
A friend once said, “Its the beard that completes a Man” and Adetola, the founder of MBG believes “Bearded Men are gods”
All these appraisals and accolades is a reason why so many men sport facial hairs.
A more descriptive example of what it means to be dominant is the Animal kingdom whereby a dominant male has more mating opportunities by intimidating other potential suitors to shoo away.
Since Men with facial hairs are automatically perceived by both sexes as older, stronger, and more aggressive, the bearded man has an upper hand in perceived dominance, and therefore a greater likelihood of passing his genes on to the next generation.
So approaching from an evolutionary perspective, it is safe to say that beards serve as a dominance mechanism many Males use and therefore indirectly a means of procreation.
This Issue of dominance in modern and time in the memorial is true to its best, Dominance can provide a staggering short-cut to mating opportunities: genetic evidence indicates that about 8% of the male population of Asia today is descendent of Genghis Khan and his family.
To Attract Women
Quite similar to No 1, To Attract Women is one of the reasons why many men now take to sporting beards. Men who have beards have a staggering advantage of catching the most in a pool of women.
A recent study shows women find men with beards more attractive. So there is a possibility that the majority of ]women in the party room will run after the guy with neat beards than the beardless guys.
We had to conduct brief research by asking a number of ladies on social media of which calibre of men(Bearded and Non-bearded) do they find attractive?
You should know the answer by now…
You still don’t know?
It’s the Bearded Men of course.
Just like men with bald heads are believed to have strong leadership potential than Men with hairs so are Men with beards.
Masculine & Healthy Appearance
For the sake of having a masculine and healthy appearance, many black men took to growing beards.
Research from Victor Ryan, a Facebook user and Well-wisher of MBG reveals how he became a sensation amongst women in the University of Port Harcourt.
“I was quietly known for my baby face (Without a beard), despite the public awareness of my existence being without beards portrayed me in a child’s light.
\”My relationship with my girlfriend was suffering due to the fact that the guys with all the beards and broad chest made her feel she was leaving the real men for a child.
“Which was totally wrong of them.
“It got so intense that at some point I had to start worrying about my looks
“I decided to start growing my beards in 2016, so far my beard journey has been amazing, I look more Masculine now and girls, in fact, people now take me seriously”
You can be Mr. Ryan.
Your brother, your cousin or nephew can be going through the same experience as Mr. Ryan as today’s world has made “Sporting Beards” A mental liberation for boyhood.
Another friend also revealed how growing his beards gave him the advantage of dating older women.
So what makes you think the beard trend will die any time soon?
Protection From UV Rays

Reduction Of Asthma or Allergy Symptoms
Reduction of Asthma / Allergy syndromes is one of the reasons why people now grow their beard these days.

This is not much different from nasal hair ( Nasal or nose hair is the hair in the nose).
Beauty Of Youthfulness
A beard can actually function as a fountain or beauty of youth because of all of the protection it offers.
Since beards/ facial hairs now keep your skin clear of cancerous blemishes and having a beard means you reduce the amount of acne and discolouration on your skin, your skin will stay healthy for longer.
The ability of a beard and moustache to keep allergens out of your system will also improve your overall health.
