Do you struggle to get past the itch-phase of beard growth? Does facial hair give you the appearance of an earnest tramp? Then forget about growing your own chin warmer this year and let a calendar do it for you.
The work of Ukrainian designer Anna Marinenko, the Bearded Year is a calendar substitute to the time-consuming task of growing your own beard.
Each month consists of a transparent sheet of acrylic: dates sit along the lower edge of the sheet, beneath an illustrated depiction of a month's-worth of hair growth. As the months build up, so does the girth and build of the beard, culminating in a wizard-like December.
Available from Marinenko's Etsy page, you can live out your vicarious beard desires with the Bearded Year for £39.73.
