Famous Facial Hair

I have to post this, because it is just hilarious. One day my brother (Tom's) friend was surfing the web looking for some style ideas for a goatee. He googled "goatee styles" and one of the first links he clicked on was from menshair.about.com. It was an article with pictures about facial hair and finding the right style for your face shape. And was surprised at one of the pictures in that article. Funny enough it was a picture of his friend, (my brother.) So he called him up and asked him about it. My brother was shocked because he had no idea how his picture got to be part of this article. He did some thinking, and eventually figured it out. He is a film major at the University of Utah, and he had to do some head shots for his portfolio. So apparently after taking his picture the photographer asked him if it was okay if she uploaded one or two of his pictures up onto istock photo. And I guess the author of the article must have purchased and download his photo from istock.

If you google "goatee styles" his picture is the third link in that "men's hair" article. If you go to google images and type "goatee" or "goatee styles" his picture comes up as number one or number 2.


His facial hair is right up there with the popular facial hair styles of Orlando Bloom, Adam Sandler, Will Smith, Johnny Depp... ha ha... I think it's awesome.

I'm one of those random people who just found your brother on Google because I'm trying to grow a goatee (and Googled "goatee", where his image competes with Spock and some SIMS characters). It looks really good on him! So tell him there's now some random guy in Seattle trying to have his goatee.

Catfish on dating sites also like to use your brother's picture as well. I know this is an old blog post, but I stumbled upon it after doing a Google image search. Some guy is using it as his profile pic on Plenty of Fish...Unless your brother is a 36-year-old who lives in Richmond, VA.
