We Said Goodbye To The Hipster


Before I get into the sad, seriousness of this post, let’s start with a joke…

Why did the hipster burn his tongue?

He sipped his coffee before it was cool.

*Wipes tear from eye* you just have to love a good hipster joke.  Although, that isn’t one.

Anyway.  Let’s get down to business.

When beards and man buns become too mainstream, it’s time to say goodbye to said beard and man bun.  Even though “mainstream” means 1 or 2 other people in Canal Walk or the entire patronage of Truth Coffee in Cape Town.

I will honestly say that I was not happy.  I really liked all of it.  I begged.  I pleaded.  But he was having none of it.  So then I asked for a consolation of being able to photograph it before he cut it all off, but that didn’t happen either.  Once he has the thought in his head, you can’t stop him.

The hair stayed but the beard left.

And I was sad.

In fact the change to his face was so severe that I even struggled to look at him – it was almost as though I was married to a teenager.  *shudders*   Too weird for words.


Anyway, I was scrolling through some photos when I came across a few that I took before my Dad’s funeral.

Not exactly the best occasion or timing or light or anything, but we have to properly say goodbye to the beard!






No photoshoot with Seth is complete without him pulling some “bloopers”

  1. I’m dreading the husband having to chop his lumberjack beard off when he starts working again. I don’t want to be married to a little boy!

    RIP, Hipster Beard.

  2. My hubby has had his beard for so long that I find it hard to remember how he looked without it. None of the kids has ever seen him without it. On the other hand, it will scratch less. But Seth will always be Mr Cool

Go on, tell me what you think...
