Got a Job Interview?
In recent years people have been sceptical about going to interviews with beards.
With the thought that having a clean-shaven face is more likely to have the advantage of entry-level jobs,
it turns out that having a well-groomed beard is more likely to land you higher up the ladder.
Having a beard can be perceived as dominant, wise, experienced and even knowledgeable.
People respect a man with a well-kept beard, who walks with confidence.
They know he’s the man that owns the space he walks!
82% of women said that men look more masculine with a beard
Have all been there where a woman has wanted to feel up your beard, asking to run her hands through it. With 82% of women preferring a man with a beard that means that for every 5 women you ask to have a drink with at a bar, your pull 4 out of 5 (if you’re on top of your game a beard can’t talk for you). Another thing that’s been said is that bearded men seem to be better providers, now let your imagination run with that one.

Leonardo Da Vinci's The Long Full Long Beard
World's Most Expensive Painting
Leonard da Vinci
Doe's this man need an intro?
Leonardo is probably the most famous painter of all time PERIOD!
Born on the 15th of April 1452 in Vinci, Italy. The birthplace of Leanardo hasn't been known for centuries, We know it was in or near Vinci, so records state Vinci due to the uncertainty.
Having moved around Italy throughout his life, first working in Milan and Florence and briefly moving to Rome He was an extraordinary man with a lot to give to the world art is just one of the many talents this man possessed, architecture, sculpture, science and even engineering were some of the other traits having studied the above with over 13'000 pages of notes and drawings.
His paintings are now considered to be the most valuable in the history of art, having done the last supper and his most famous Mona Lisa.
Mona Lisa has been mentioned in all types of papers, and articles and featured in many films (normally art robbery films) In 2017 The Mona Lisa broke the world record for the most expensive painting sold after being auctioned off at a WHOOPING $450.3 MILLION!
The Greatest Play's
Some of the best films in history were written by Sophocles, going back to Ancient Greek Times!
Sophocles was one of three greek tragedians, having written over 120 plays only a couple would be available due to how old they are.
On the record: He was born between 496/497 BC in Colonus, Attica which surrounds the capital of Greece, Athens.
As you can see from the photo, the only image we have to go by is a sculpture of the bearded Sophocles. I don't believe he had the opportunity to take advantage of beard balm but he does look to have a magnificent beard.
Growing up as a kid, I loved Hercules from the film, toys & video games! You could say a slight obsession. Hercules At Taenarum or in ancient Greek Herakles Epi Tainaro, Eurystheus ordered Hercules to go to the underworld and kidnap a beard called Cerberus (Ancient Greek: Kerberos)

My Bearded Conclusion
With all the facts, history and knowledge put into this blog do I believe having a beard will make you a success?
There is no evidence to fully back this up, only a little superstition and conspiracy. Having done my own research and looked into the history of beard's this blog does have some further facts I would like you to know and have your own opinion on. Leonardo Dicaprio was named after the famous painter Leonardo Da Vinci, naming your son doesn't necessarily make you made for success but you must admit it's rather a coincidence both have become HUGE names within the world we live in.
Wait here's a huge beard fact for you!
Remember when I mentioned Abraham Lincoln having heritage from Norfolk, England?
Well here is something to get you thinking!
Abraham Lincoln was the 16th president of America, his mother Nancy Lincoln had a half-sister called Mary Ann Sparrow.
George Clooney also has heritage from Germany, Ireland & you guessed it ENGLAND!
George's great-great-great-great-grandmother was Mary Sparrow,
So would you say it's a coincidence that both Abraham & George made a massive success whilst sporting awesome beards and being related?
