Scandinavians and facial hair… an entire topic in itself for someone from New Zealand. I must say, I do enjoy how when boys have facial hair in this part of the world, it is a whole lot more styled and well kept than kiwi boys. Even the ones going for the ‘Thor’ look (long blonde hair + long blonde beard) seem to look far more styled.
I also really enjoy that no-one is doing that stupid ‘ironic moustache’ thing. It’s no longer different and ironic when everyone is doing it so I don’t really understand how it became a trend at all. I mean, the gave Stanley Tucci a moustache like that in “The Lovely Bones” for a reason. In case my implication isn’t clear, its because he played a rapist. It really is beyoned my why any boy would want to look like a peadophile, but hey, it seems to be on the way out, thank God.
Of all the nicely trimmed stubble, or manly-yet-still-stylish (important in a country where people look a lot younger than they really are) beards, or the Finnish guys with hilariously comical beards the absolute hands down winner has to be this guy, spotted in Helsinki:
