November is a time when our fratty fellows attempt to prove their manhood by hiding their razors and growing their facial hair like Tom Hanks circa “Castaway.” For some reason, we’re still unsure why, guys like to display their masculinity and show off their testosterone levels by competing for the longest, thickest, darkest facial hair all throughout the month. As an ode to the end of the hairy time of the year, we’ve collected some fabulously furry photos of some shaggy guys who we think killed it during No Shave November.
PS: Girls, don’t worry - only one day left in the month. We’ll have our men looking clean, fresh and fierce again in no time. For now, just enjoy these pics!
Ian Steckler showed off his borderline-Mexican moustache this month. Shaping his upper-lip-strip to match his Luigi Halloween costume, this tall, dark and lanky AEPi sophomore nailed it. He shaved this off about a week later after it grew in extra thick, but way to commit to one of our favorite Italian cartoon character’s looks.
This artsy Boston native stayed true to himself by pairing his November facial art with his classic plaid shirt, khaki pants, and alternative attitude. Adam Ephraim grew out his facial locks and flashed a smile through the mess of his beard while still looking cute and chic. Adam also shaved away his mane, but none of us will forget his fitting facial hair this past month.
Sam Shapiro is a Sigma Chi dreamboat who doesn’t joke around when it comes to his hair, especially those growing on his face. Sam flaunted his facial fuzz with a suit and a tie, along with a big smile. Unlike some of our other features, there’s a good chance you can still find Sam in the library or manning the register at Chill with his scruff fully intact.
Eric Chalifour was the perfect distraction today on the second floor of the library. It’s the very, very end of November, so we know Eric’s clearly No Shave November’s biggest fan: he still hasn’t shaved! He’s working hard to represent Phi Delt well with his hair still growing in - wIll he be the last (cave)man standing? We’ll have to just wait and see. Regardless, with all that fuzz on his face he looks cute, cuddly, and ready for a cold winter!
Even though his mustache looks somewhat sparse in his personal take on Blue Steel (also known as Magnum, Ferrari, or Le Tigre), we know Nick Fineman is capable of growing some serious shag. Though you’ll see him cruising around campus sans-mustache these days, he didn’t fail to make a statement with his facial hair when he debuted it and retired it at the Kappa Krush party two weeks ago. Thanks for keeping it klassy, Nick.
Jeremy Gibbs is a Sig Ep Senior who rocked his hearty hair at Three Kings pre-Thanksgiving break. Chances are he went home with that scruff and his mother made him shave it all off before entering the house. Either way, Gibbs was a poster boy for No Shave November and wore it well as he paired his facial fur with a nice button down, a comfy zippy, and best of all: an adorable faux-hawk.
