Once you start to look like Gandalf, Jesus, or someone who froze themselves right after Woodstock ended it's time to take care of the beard.

I meant to click other on this. I think beards can be professional as long as they are maintained.Β

People who think beards are unprofessional are living in the 1980s still.

If it's a well-groomed one then sure, If you look fresh off a climb to Everest then probably not.Β

As long as the beard is maintained and not scraggly, I don't see any problem with having one.Β

It is a good topic and it is funny to talk haha ​​but many people believe that a budna beard helps to give presence and presentation to a person, others see it informal, from my side I agree hahaha
