Hipster Alert: Check Out Your Beard Before You Grow It

As we head into the chillier months New York’s hipsters are increasingly sporting beleaguered bears to match their faded flannels.

For many of these underdeveloped uber-mensches, growing a beard is a Herculean effort, akin to enjoying popular FM radio in a non-ironic fashion.

Luckily a spate of new smartphone apps let young Lincolns see what they would look like with a beard.

Schick’s Shave-O-Matic has a wide selection of styles and colors, but we predict that BeardMe, which avoids the stigma of mainstream commerce, will prevail among the hipster set.
