A source close to the situation explained:
There are rules to follow as a hipster.
You have to drink PBR.
You have to eat locally-grown, organic food.
And while owning a three-legged dog isn’t required, they are SO in right now.
But if you’re a hipster guy, one MUST have a beard!
So what do you do if you can’t pull off some scruff because your facial hair comes in a little patchy?
Simple. Have elective surgery!
According to one New York doctor, he’s been performing "beard transplants” faster than a fixie going down Park Slope!
Guys are lining up to go under the knife of Dr. Jeffrey Epstein so that they can pull off the ultimate hipster look!
"Brooklyn is probably the nucleus of the trend, it’s the hipster ‘look’ guys want. If you have a spotty beard, and you let it grow out, it looks sloppy. [Clients] want full beards because it’s a masculine look. Beards are an important male identifier.”
Dr. Jeff says he’s been performing about two to three beard implants a week! And this procedure ain’t cheap! One of his clients paid $8,500 to get some whiskers added to his face!
Danny admits that he got the surgery in order to make a fashion statement. The newly bearded bro spilled:
"I have a baby face but now I’m able to look older. My fashion statement is a little edgy, and I do like the ‘rugged look.'”
K, well this all seems like the complete OPPOSITE of hipster culture to us! Not to mention SO unnecessary!
But whatever people want to do with their bodies is up to them! And hey, we’d be lying if we said we didn’t dig a dude with some scruff!
Sound off, Perezcious readers! Is this hipster hair trend worth it??
