The man who shaved off his beard after 14 years
If you’ve ever had a friend or relative who has bid farewell to their much-loved beard or moustache, then you’ll be familiar with the sheer shock and amazement that comes with seeing them sans facial hair for the very first time.
A 44-year-old Israeli man named Amit gave his nearest and dearest the shock of their lives when he shaved off the beard that he’d had for a solid 14 years.
Having never seen him without a beard, his wife and child were totally stunned by the transformation. His own father didn’t even recognise him until they were mid-conversation!
Aside from his family’s shocked reaction, we can’t get past how proud Amit looks throughout the entire video, or how much he appreciates how different things (like having the sun on his skin) feel. Referring to this change as a ‘new chapter’ in his life, I think it’s safe to say that he won’t be growing his beloved beard back any time soon!
Check out the video below to see his transformation!
Did you think he looked dramatically different after shaving off his beard? Has someone you know ever shaved off their much-loved beard or moustache?
