Weird Beard


Jack Passion – 2 times World Beard Champion (2007, 2009)

Although both men and women have equal amounts of hair potential through their hair receptors or follicles, it is the male hormones that turn fine colourless hair into thicker, longer and more pigmented hair types. Hair follicles have a growth cycle of around seven years and a follicle must go through its whole growth cycle to regenerate as one hair type or another, Vellus hair or Terminal hair. It is the level of male hormones that determine the number of terminal follicles that produce facial, pubic and scalp hair which make beards unique to men due to their androgen hormone production and thus qualify male facial hair as a secondary sexual characteristics.

Historically beards always played a part in human culture. At the origin, facial hair would have a practical aspect as it protects the face from wind, sun, rain and cold weather. Beards probably also served as an intimidating factor during conflict, presenting a fiercer aspect to the enemy. As more advanced civilisations emerged there was no longer the same need for facial hair, and beards and moustaches at that point played merely a socio-cultural role and was in many cases reserved to the upper classes and nobility. At various points there have even been taxation for beards making it difficult to wear for men of modest fortune, and pulling someone’s beard in the middle ages required settlement in duel..

•Typical female headshape, short humerus bone (upper arms), thin sandcolored hair, sparse blond bodyhair, weak eyebrows, narrow sloping shoulders, close facial features – close set eyes, short nose, short mouth – and big fluffy fake red beard.

The first american Beard World Champion was Jack Passion who surprised the world of facial hair during the 2007 World Championship in Brighton by winning 1st Place for Full Beard Natural in his debut competition. Sporting a long thick beard he astutely named ‘Big Red’, Jack has committed complete devotion to his beard thus making him a natural winner at only 23 years old and the first ever ‘Professional Beardsman’ with his 2011 TV series “Whisker Wars” and his milestone book ‘The Facial Hair Handbook’ selling well.

It might be debated whether John Giles really is the first professional beardsman in history, but his commercial success and public image sure has been well orchestrated and professionally managed. The first professional beard-impersonators might in reality have been Ancient Egypt nobility who equally favoured red beards which might be why (lumber) Jack Passion really chose an unnatural red coloured beard despite his own thin and effeminate blond hair.

Jack Passion’s facial hair constitute but a part of his scripted persona as the first American Full Natural Beard World Champion. When we consider that everything Jack do, wear and say is carefully staged and put together in order to create the illusion of a hairy Lumberjack Joe, it becomes clear it’s not really about his ‘Big Red’ beard. The beard is merely what sells him as a female to male EGI role model for men  – and his beard just part of the theatrics behind the retarded lumberjack hairy fashion the Elite has instigated as a useful tool to capture the attention and dictate the behaviour of young men. The beard is simply the tool of the trade, and as fake as Santa Claus, Jesus Christ and Egyptian Pharaohs all-together.
