GQtr: You love a beard because....?

Liz: I admire beards because like having long hair, it takes patience & care to tend to a beard. Bearded men, in my opinion, exude confidence and respect.

GQtr: Is there any down side to bearded awesomeness....?

Liz: The only dislike I have towards beards is shedding. HAIR IS ALWAYS EVERYWHERE!

GQtr: Beard combs are a valuable tool, yay or nay....?

Liz: I think beard combs can be useful depending on the length and thickness of the beard. Is it a necessity? Not particularly.

GQtr: Men can spend up to £20 on a decent beard oil.  Is this ok....? 

Liz: I think of beard oil almost like any hair product I use. There will be high-end & low-end products, but I always stick with using coconut oil and have recommended its use to fellow beards I know. 

GQtr: Would you be comfortable telling him if he needed to remove some left over dinner from his face forest....? 

Liz: Leftover dinner in the face forest is an everyday task, and I am very comfortable letting him know it’s there. That’s what I’m here for!

GQtr: Is there a point in which the beard becomes too long?  Is wizard level acceptable?

Liz: I believe there is, but it’s all preferable taste. I like a beard to have shape, and to be well-kept. I’m not a fan of the Duck Dynasty vibe…

GQtr: Who's your bearded celebrity idol....? 

Liz: Greg Berzinsky. IG handle @berzinsky. He is a silver-fox with the most beautiful facial hair I’ve ever seen. He’s just divine.

GQtr: How important is regular beard grooming....? 

Liz: So important!! Brushing it daily, applying beard oil, trimming stray/long hairs is something I have to remind my bearded fellow of.

GQtr: A world without beards would be.......

Liz: A world without beards would be comparable to that of a world without short dresses. Beards are sexy!
