In the U.K., a bearded man is poised to take control of the Labour Party, becoming the first bearded leader of a major British party since the First World War. And, given current polls, Canada may soon be sending a bearded prime minister to the clean-shaven ranks of the Group of Seven.
After nearly a century-long hiatus, it seems beards are returning to the faces of Western politicians.
“If Mulcair wins, it would indeed be a remarkable moment in the history of facial hair,” said Christopher Oldstone-Moore, a facial hair historian at Ohio’s Wright State University, in an email to the National Post.
Beards were practically ubiquitous at the dawn of Canadian governance. Nineteen of the 25 delegates photographed at the Charlottetown Conference sported some kind of facial hair. Of the four male monarchs who have been Canada’s head of state, two were bearded.
Back by popular demand we now supply a beeswax option for non-vegans. Carnauba wax is still available for our vegan customers. We have had a lot of requests for beeswax and felt we can still maintain our vegan commitment by providing options for both vegans and none vegans.
Here at Urban Beard we take pride in maintaining well groomed facial hair, and our new Urban Beard Box is designed just for that purpose. This sturdy custom designed box is made of pine and has removable custom cut foam inserts to prevent the products from rattling and breaking when moved. As well as protecting the products the high quality foam is pleasing on the eye and gives the beard box that added slick look. The box has solid brass hinges and a leather stay to keep the box propped open when in use. It has a pewter closure with an elastic cord to keep the box closed. And last but not least the Urban Beard logo inscribed on the lid, your seal of approval when it comes to beard care. You know you will always look your best once you own this ultimate beardsmans tool kit.
Urban Beard is Canadian and we love working with local companies. These boxes are handmade by a master craftsman in Ontario and the foam is cut and supplied by a company here in Toronto. We source 95% of our products, ingredients, containers and all other supplies and services from Canada. Urban Beard believes in local.
