THE GINGER BEARD

You would’ve had to be living under a rock not to notice the epic man beard trend.  We remember pitching Clooney Colour - Beard to a women Barber early on “haven’t you heard, beards are on the way out” said the only barber in town with no one in her shop.

I think beards have solidified their place next to uneven ties, double-breasted jackets, worn denim and idolising Steve McQueen & Paul Newman.  These things aren’t going away.  The best part - even balding men can grow a godly beard.  The worst part –the ginger tinge’.  We know it's disappointing when the carpet doesn’t match the drapes.

Yes, you can claim William Wallace (Braveheart) as a great long distance relative of yours that fought for the freedom of Scotland and that your golden ginger strands come from a long line of great warriors.  Or that at birth you were separated from the bloodline of royalty and that you are Prince Harry’s cousin.  In reality, none of these are going to do anything for your manhood. 

Ginger facial hair doesn’t discriminate and even tall, dark and handsome can inherited two mutated genes from each side of the family resulting in red hair and fair skin. “When someone inherits two mutated versions of the MC1R-gene (one from each parent), less pheomelanin is converted into eumelanin. The [pheomelanine] accumulates in the pigment cells and the person ends up with red hair and fair skin.” Haak-Bloem – Genetics Expert

The gene has personality and expresses itself in many ways, sometimes messing up your face.  Luckily we have been helping many guys "touch up" their beards with our Clooney Colour Beard Cream. Give it a go and get right for summer. We love a good ginger man, according to the gods they are 30% stronger than most, but tinges don’t make the cut for the majority of Clooney Club gentlemen.

“Absolutely love the product in and out!” – From a Bearded Villain himself.
