How has it been 3 whole years since we did a beardterview?! We are ready to jump back in to introducing you to some amazing new beards (and their faceplants).
Today, we have beardterviewed a long-time wearer of Delicious Beard products: Señor Beard. He's made a great life after suffering PTSD (the "S" is for shaving), and offers some sage advice for whiskers of the future.
Q: What name do you prefer to go by and why?
A: Señor Beard as you can see I am latino and well the rest just came naturally.
Q: How long have you been growing? Tell us your bio.
A: I've been on this face plant since 2006 on and off. We had our ups and downs. I went away a few times since but have been growing strong for the past 4 years.
Q: Have you ever experienced the horrors of a sharp blade deliberately cutting you off? If so, how did that make you feel?
A: It was a hot dry day in 2014. <tear running down> I...I...I cant talk about it. I suffer from Post Traumatic Shaving Disorder. Anytime a trimmer or blade comes near me I freak. I vowed to never let it happen again. Since then I have joined a beard club called Bearded Villains. They give me reason to keep fighting.
Q: What's your honest opinion of your faceplant, and why did you choose to plant yourself on that face?
A: So Tony is a decent guy. He went through some tough times in 2014. That's kind of why we parted ways that year. I forgave him because he needed my help. He is a nice guy but man is his neck ugly. I figured I could help him out. He feeds me and bathes me so the least I could do is make him look good.
Q: Would you ever leave your faceplant (if so, what would be the deciding factor), or are you committed for life?
A: I don't think I could leave him... unless Zac Efron needs back up... Haha but yeah im stuck with the guy. We need each other.
Q: Tell us about your dream job. If you could do anything, what would it be?
A: Honestly, my dream job would be unicorn taming. They are crazy wild and rare so just the opportunity to do that would be amazing.
Q: Since we all know beards are notorious for catching food, what are your least and most favorite foods to hang on to?
A: I'm notorious for left overs but I think the worst food I catch is basically any pasta with sauce. It manages to get in places and just stays. The best food is cheetos. I usually find them while they are still crunchy.
Q: Do you have any super embarrassing stories unique to being a beard? Do tell!
A: Well I shed... like a lot. I literally cant go anywhere without leaving a hair or two behind. At least. It's just terrible. I feel if you gather them all up you could make 2 of me.
Q: What is your advice for baby beards or beards still searching for their own face on which to plant themselves?
A: Just grow. Don't let your face plant trim you. You are not going to be a big strong beard all at once. It takes time and hard work.
