Men without their beard are like women without their make up on. Just like makeup makes us women feel beautiful and confident so does a beard help men feel more mature and confident.
We are obviously talking about the men who love their beards, but there are some men out there that prefer being shaven clean and truth be told, it can be much nicer to kiss a man without a beard.
I know, some of you are cursing me know, but we all have our own comments whether men should grow a beard or not. It’s one of those situations that it’s a 50/50 chance that the beard will suit the man and become a part of him or it will just not work.
But for Gwilym Pugh, it worked out perfectly well! He is a 21-year-old businessman who works from the comfort of his home and it ended up making him pick up a lot of weight. So much so that his barber advised him to grow a beard to feel better.
“At that time I was pretty overweight, working 12 hours a day, plagued with injuries which meant I couldn’t train at all,” Gwilym told Wales Online. “The business was doing okay, but I decided I needed to get my life in order and wanted to get healthy again.”
Gwilym was part of a band and when he started to grow his beard, he decided to go a bit further and include some healthy eating. But in order for him to be able to lose, he knew he had to stop sitting 12 hours a day in front of his computer.
“It was the best thing for my health as I stopped sitting for nine to 10 hours a day,” he said after losing about 90 pounds in 5 years.
When he lost most of his weight he started an Instagram account to document his story.
Doesn’t he look fantastic? Nathan Palmer, a Welshen tailor also thought so when he came across Gwilym’s Instagram account.
He now works with AMCK Models and have been part of a lot of different brands like, Diesel and Vans.
“A picture says a thousand words…. Coming from being 22 years old, overweight, plagued with injuries, and unhappy barely leaving the house.”
Because of his success and great beard, okay hard work was also involved, he became a brand ambassador for House 99, David Beckham’s own male grooming brand.
“I’m happier and healthier than I ever thought possible and doing things that didn’t even cross my mind to dream of.”
“I think I’m lucky I got into this profession at the age that I did.”
Even though he is so successful he remains a humble and loving man.
“I try not to get caught up in it all and my girlfriend helps a great deal with that.”
“Having worked in finance for years, the opportunity to work with creative people and travel around the world is amazing.”
He said it was the best thing he could have done for his health.
During all the traveling and fun he tries to maintain his look and body.
“Regular osteo treatment and morning mobility and HIIT workouts are what’s in order.”
Growing a beard seems more doable now.
