We all know beards may arguably be the biggest trend in 2015 so far.
Historically, age has been seen as a very good thing, and societies all across the globe have ascribed wisdom and temperance to age.
How come, at some point in our evolutionary history, we lost most of our body hair but men retained (or acquired) facial hair?
We all pretty much have the same logical first thought – it’s to keep our faces warm. And why is facial hair generally sparser in some northern populations (like northern Asia)?
That is, what is the evolutionary purpose of a beard? But why did men start growing beards in the first place, and why don’t women have beards?
Women flock to a handsome beard, so beard up gentlemen, and be proud!
