According To A New Coffee Table Book, These Are The Best Beards In Dallas.

Beards have been all the rage among men for the past several years at this point, with grizzly growing out their neck manes to varying degrees — all the while catching the attention of potential suitors.

Yeah, beards are considered sort of sexy nowadays.

And in the tradition of those collections of beautiful women posing in an at least somewhat artful and empowering ways in the form of a calendar, one local man is using beards to put together a male counterpart this January.

Dallas photographer Brent Baxter has put together a collection of the Best Beards In Dallas for your coffee table. He says that, initially, as most photography projects begin, this was just a personal thing he did with friends for fun. Only after he really got rolling did he envision turning his project into a full-on collection. Now, he says, his photographs are intended to capture these men in particular environments that reflect their personas.

“Everyone's from different walks of life,” Baxter says of his subjects. “They have different stories.”

On top of getting his first photography book out to the public and putting a spotlight on some of the best facial hair Dallas has to offer, Baxter says the book is also intended to raise awareness when it comes to men's health issues.

“I'm hoping it will bring some awareness more than just one month,” Baxter says, referencing how, in November, men are encouraged not to shave to raise aware for such issues.

Additionally, he says ten percent of his proceeds will be donated to the Movember Foundation, which seeks to help men live healthier lives and funds more than 1,000 programs focusing on prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and physical inactivity.

The book's release party, which is free to attend, will be held at Sundown at Granada on Saturday, January 9, from 9 p.m.to 2 a.m., and will feature music from Charley Crockett and Shotgun Friday. Naturally, there will also be a best beard contest for those who feel like they've been snubbed in the book.
