Have You Heard Of The Bangalore Beard Club?
Yes, there is a beard club in Bengaluru, where like-bearded men meet and discuss matters of beard and so on. Just kidding. These fine gentlemen are so much more than that. We have a quick chat with Vishal Singh, the founder of BBC.
I wanted to create an offline community to unite bearded men from different religions, caste and creed. I started the club on 17th May, 2016. We presently have 8 members. The membership is selective. All bearded men are prospects, but only a few are chosen to become members.
We meet once a month apart from regular monthly events. We discuss short term and long terms goals for the coming events over a drink of whisky. A couple of us do yoga, so we meet during the yoga classes as well. We are always trying to make it better. Very soon we will be launching chapters in Mumbai and Delhi. I see it becoming a National Brotherhood of Bearded Men.
How long and how much?
It takes me an hour to get ready before I leave the house. I apply beard oil after my shower. Good beard care requires oiling, shampoo and conditioner and I wash my face every day and blow dry my beard. I use beard washes, oil, wax and beard combs. I also wear clothes, shoes and accessories to match my beard. My monthly expenditure is around 5,000 to 8,000 rupees including salon services.
