As women, we’re naturally fond of beards and the variations thereof. Science says so. And as Egyptian women, we pay exceptionally close attention to our leading men’s beards and the variations thereof. Why? Because there is a pattern. Egyptian heartthrobs had an evolution of beards which we cannot ignore. Ever since…
The 50s included lots of moustaches, mostly the Clark Gable, pencil ‘stache. This was sported by dashing men such as:
“The Gable moustache was replaced by a thicker, more Egyptian version.”
The Gable moustache was replaced by a thicker, more Egyptian version. And the ladies loved it. We must say, general taste was still intact back then.
“Sideburns became a thing. They were popular again for the first time since the 1800s.”
This is when things started going south. Sideburns became a thing. They were popular again for the first time since the 1800s. And no one considered why they were unpopular for so long. This era’s heartthrobs donned their sideburns bare-faced or while also sporting the ever-so-attractive handlebar moustache.
Thankfully, sideburns were gone. However, moustaches were still going strong. Bigger than ever!

“At that point, men realized the pointlessness of underlining their noses using moustaches. And this is when we started seeing beards.”
At that point, men realized the pointlessness of underlining their noses using moustaches. And this is when we started seeing beards. Unfortunately, they were either coupled with lots of lipstick, creepy stares and fluffy, red pillows…
Or it was coupled with an impeccable caveman impression…
There’s still hope, though. Because recently, we’ve been seeing beard-sporting gentlemen worthy of praise. General taste is starting to get better! All thanks to men who know the seriousness of having a beard.
