When I stroll through the streets today, many men wear beards, which was actually not fashionable at all in the past. Today the beardless can be counted on 10 fingers, the majority, old and young, wear a beard. Not a long one like my grandfather, where the soup always got stuck. That's probably why I don't like beards. 

But now since a while I also noticed that men also wear buns. My aunt Justine, my grandmother's sister, had a bun on her head pulling her hair back. Since she had huge sticky out ears, I was always afraid as a child that she would fly away. 

Last week I read an article about cavemen with a lot of pictures. And now I know where this fashion comes from ! Only 2,45 million years ago ! As we say fashion always comes back. Only I didn't know that it goes back so far ! 

2.45 million years ago




  1. Mom is not a fan of beards or buns on men, but it seems to be the thing to do right now.

  2. You made me laugh out loud. I don't like beards either. I always wonder what's living in them. You're right, fashion always returns, but this is a long stretch. Good one.

    Thank you for joining the Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Happy Tuesday, Gattina. ♥

  3. My great-grandson has a bun, but no beard,, as he's only eight. I'm not keen on beards and always wonder if they're covering up a weak chin!

  4. LOL! That is funny! We see a lot of those 'buns' here, too...and plenty of beards.

  5. I have a beard, but keep it very trim.

  6. They say it all comes back around.
    Coffee is on and stay safe

  7. You are so right. I see so many men with their beards andbuns these days.

  8. I don't mind a beard as long as it's not too long and straggly - yes you don't know what it might be hiding. I don't think it's fair to criticise the way men choose to style their hair considering what we women do to ours lol

  9. I think the pandemic might have helped this trend along. No cutting or shaving turns out to be quite popular nowadays. :)
