It’s November 15 - which marks the precise midpoint of No-Shave November. For those unfamiliar with this tradition, “Noshember” is a month-long campaign that encourages men and women to forgo their typical grooming tendencies and embrace their natural hair trajectories. Instead, participants can forward the budget usually allocated towards shaving products towards cancer prevention and ultimately, furthered cancer awareness.
Countless stars of rock ‘n roll have historically embraced and expressed their individualistic personalities through a commitment to their facial forests. We believe in the power of promoting the hairy undertakings of our bearded rockers to honor those participating this month and stand strong with those fighting the battle.
This week’s Bearded Rocker is none other than The Doors’ preaching poet, Jim Morrison, captured in this 1969 photoshoot in Hollywood Hills, California.
Morrison rocked a clean shaven, neat look during the early days of his career, but to many Doors fans’ delight, he eventually transitioned into a mystic, unfurled look that would appoint him the shaman title his poetic lyricism deserved.
In his own way of flying the freak flag, Morrison grew out his hair in a time period when long hair let loose ruled the anti-establishment movement. The shaggier, the better!
See you next week, hair heroes.
