We’re Looking For The Best Facial Hair And Man-Buns Of State College

“No Shave November” is a popular trend among college students. For various reasons, young men (and sometimes ladies) will opt out of shaving for the entire month. No Shave November promotes a number of crazy hairstyles, everything from wild beards to man-buns.

Thanks to the rise of the man-bun’s popularity in pop culture, it’s no secret millennials are proudly flaunting their new manly ‘dos’ everywhere. Penn State is no exception. That’s why we’re looking for the absolute best man-buns of State College. Whether it’s a small, humble man-bun or a massive beard, show us what your participation in No Shave November has produced.

Did you participate in No Shave November? Did your friends? Do you simply know someone with a wicked man-bun or beard? We want to see it.

Email [email protected] and be sure to include the following information:

  • A selfie or photograph of yourself, highlighting your man bun or facial hair
  • Your name
  • Your current year at Penn State or age
  • A short biography of your man bun/beard and what makes it special.
