The Bushranger Beard

Like it? Share it…

A quick snap of Mr Banya on his way to work yesterday. He normally works from home in his pyjamas jeans and a T-shirt, so I was loving this more corporate look for a change.

But wait! What’s that on his face?

Yes. He’s growing a beard. and not just any beard either. A bushranger beard.

Apparently it’s a trending fashion.

I must admit, I’m starting to see beards in a few places these days. Like the two awesome beards running around on the Sydney Swans AFL team.

Then there’s the Aussie band The Beards with their Triple J Hottest 100 song “You Should Consider Having Sex With A Bearded Man”.


Mr Banya’s had tidy trimmed goatees before, but this is the first time he’s channelled his full inner Chewbacca. And I think I like it….

Thoughts?

    • Kids either love it or hate it don’t they! Luckily JJ associates not shaving with not going into the office, so she loves it 🙂

  2. I think I would DIE if my hubby did this! However I think it really suits Nath. My next door neighbour has a bushranger beard (after travelling the outback for 3 months… ) so Im seeing a few too! xx

  4. Impressive. It would take my husband a decade to accomplish growth like that!

  10. Maybe he should have tried a winter beard? It might get a bit hot and scratchy coming into summer! I don’t mind it actually. It’s still fairly trim though. You’ll have to post another photo if it gets to full-on bushranger length!

    • Yeah, the timing is a bit strange! It was Bee’s paternity leave that influenced the timing…
