About All About BEARDS

Launched on January 17, 1996 from Blossom Valley, San José, California, All About BEARDS is the world’s longest-running beard website.

This is the text from the about this site page from the original site:

The purpose of this site is to increase awareness, appreciation, and understanding of the beard. The intended audience is anyone who has any interest in or curiosity about beards. It is also intended for anyone who has an opinion about beards, whether good, bad, or neutral. Whatever your opinion on beards, I hope a visit to these pages will improve it to some degree. This site is an informal experimental project in beard research. Your feedback is welcome and is encouraged. Thanks for visiting.
