Beards are in. According to a story in the today's New York Times, beards are back in style (at least among the trendy Park Slope set). Here is a photo of me with a beard in 1986. I had a beard from 1978 (age 27) until 1988. I shaved if off when I was in the middle of a frustrating job search. I was interviewing at some big PR agencies and not getting positive results. I thought that if I shaved off my beard I would look more corporate, more conservative. I guess it worked. I later got hired by the local affiliate of the Rowland Company. Last summer I went five days without shaving and flirted with the idea of growing a beard again. Unfortunately, my facial hair is now grey! So I shaved.
