18 Maltese Guys With Awesome Beards

They didn't choose the beard life...

Along with rain, the official opening of Wine Bar Season, and the first signs of Christmastime, November is synonymous with Men's Health Awareness. Throughout the eleventh month, it's become tradition for men from all walks of life to partake in "Movember" by letting their facial hair grow for a good cause.

Far from a bandwagon charity trend, the most important part about Movember is to remind all men to look after themselves, to make a habit out of checking their bodies for abnormalities and to make regular visits to the doctor, especially if you think something might be up. 

Since old-skool barbering is seriously back in, Lovin Malta spoke to just a handful of full-time Maltese beard-growers for some inspirational words of wisdom. Here's what they had to say.
