Over the years, beards have served many different purposes for men. At the dawn of times, the main function of a beard was to keep you warm while, later on, Vikings, or barbarians, grew massive beards to intimidate the enemy. Today the beard is a symbol of masculinity, used to express fashion sensibility and status. But keeping a beard and nursing your skin, be it a full Viking do, a small stylish moustache or a cleanly shaven chin, is an art form that has been neglected in Denmark for many years, says founder of Barberians, Martin Mollerup.
