Beard Season

http://beardseason.com.au

Cultivating a fine field of facial follicles is something every man should aspire to – especially if it can save people’s lives.
You see more young Australians are killed by melanoma than any other cancer. One of these people was our mate Wes, who lost his life at the age of 26. Because Wes’ melanoma was on his neck, and not many blokes had beards back then, we ditched our shavers to share Wes’ story with everyone who asked about our beards, and encourage them to have a skin check.
By joining us you can carry on Wes’ legacy and share the Beard Season message with thousands of people who could have a melanoma and not even know it, including you. So retire your razor and tuck away your trimmer. If we all grow together with the spirit of vikings, lumberjacks and sea captains deep within our chin roots, we can make Beard Season be everything it can lusciously be.
