You Don’t Have to Embrace Lumbersexuality to Love the 12 Beards of Christmas

“Lumbersexual” is the worst kind of buzzword — not only is it pegged to a dubious trend, but it’s an egregious perversion of language. (Like “metrosexual” before it, the word describes an aesthetic, not a sexual orientation.) And yet, there’s still delight to be taken in the spectacular beards of its so-called adherents, particularly during this coziest time of the year. For a new photo series aimed at both spreading seasonal cheer and (according to her Bored Panda post about project) raising awareness for men’s health and prostate cancer, Stephanie Jarstad decorated some truly impressive facial hair to resemble Christmas trees, reindeer, and even stockings hung by the chimney with care. If you’re taken with these portraits (spotted via Design Taxi), you might consider buying them in poster or holiday-card form for the beardo in your life.
