In the good old days, sometimes trends used to take YEARS to get from one part of the country to another.

A hip, new fashion in New York City? Well, it would appear in Kansas about three or four years later.

But things sure have changed in that regard.

Every single worldwide trend can be zapped and transmitted around the globe in a matter of seconds…and sometimes we end up with really weird things like what you’re about to see.

HALF BEARDS!

Hey, it could be worse, I guess…I think…

You look for yourself and be the judge.

1. This guy looks very intense.

And the half beard really amps up the intensity.

2. Black and white for artistic effect.

I see what you did there…

3. This thing has some LENGTH.

How long have you been growing that beauty?

4. He’s got a smug look, huh?

I think he’s pretty darn proud of his facial hair.

5. Don’t mess with this guy.

Even if his facial hair looks kind of ridiculous.

6. Some nice salt and pepper for ya.

This fella has it goin’ on!

7. A man of mystery.

What could he be thinking?

8. He seems pretty happy about his look.

You do you, buddy!

9. Two different stages of a masterpiece.

You doing great work, my man!

10. It doesn’t get much better than this.

As far as half beards go, I mean…

11. He’s got a whole look going on.

We salute you!

Well, that’s weird, huh?
