They say growing a beard makes a guy look much cooler and more badass. Regardless of what the experts say, there’s no denying that rocking the beard has become more acceptable in today’s society.

Anderson later posted the photos on his social media page and it just immediately attracted a lot of attention. Besides, the entries are extremely wild and colorful!
