Opinion Editorial Topic Paragraph
Walking around the BYU campus, I laugh to myself as I see many men sporting rather unattractive and scraggly mustaches. I feel rather embarrassed for my peers as I see a small growth of hair on their upper lip. These attempts at facial hair remind me of my childhood in the 90’s as superstars like Tom Selleck and Alex Trebek wore them with pride. However this peach fuzz in today’s society is extremely unattractive. These sad excuses for mustaches would be much more attractive and sophisticated if only the men at BYU were allowed to grow beards. Although beards may occasional look scruffy and primitive, BYU should allow men to grow beards because we are no longer in the 90’s, a scanty mustache is extremely unattractive, and a clean cut, well-groomed beard is just as sophisticated as a well trimmed mustache.
