I grew my first beard about 3 years ago when my 2nd son, Ben, was born. What started out as laziness, and not shaving for a couple of weeks, turned into a mission (obsession?) to try and see if I actually COULD grow a beard! And, how to grow a beard worth keeping?
So, where did Beardsmith come from? Why did a busy father of 2 and full time nurse decide it was a good idea to start up his first ever business? And do you care where Beardsmith came from??!! Of course you do!! That’s why you’re going to read my long, rambling and self indulgent origins story!!
In my local town, Tralee, we have a yearly festival (which is nothing to do with beards I should say!) called The Rose of Tralee Festival……sorry I should say The Rose of Tralee International Festival; they added the ‘international’ part in the last couple of years!
