When you think of a makeover, you imagine it must take a lot of effort, skill and money. This isn't necessarily true. Some of the best makeovers happen purely out of laziness. Men stop shaving and that's it. Then, a few days to a few weeks later, magic happens. Sure, they have to care for and sculpt them, but beards have magical, transformative properties. Just look how this guy goes from so-so to stud. These guys are all taking beards to a new level.
On the left, we have a man who's unsure of himself. He doesn't know what he wants in life and even if he did, he'd be too afraid to ask for it. On the right, we have a man who demands a side order of bacon and gets it, even when he's getting his oil changed at Jiffy Lube. This is the potential power of beards.
On the left: "Gee, I sure hope the g-g-g-girls at school like me. I'm pretty shy and don't know if they'd want to come talk to me."
On the right: "Sorry, Sally, I don't have time to take you out on a date. I know you're a Brazilian bikini model with a degree in nuclear physics, but honestly, it's going to take a lot more than that to make it into my relationship rotation. Better luck with someone else."
This might be my favorite yet. When viewing these pics side by side, it looks like he's longingly fantasizing about how great he's eventually going to look. Don't let your dreams stay just dreams, folks.
Gingers get made fun of a lot. The kid on the left looks like his smile is masking pain from years of bullying. But on the right? Say something about him not having a soul. He dares you to do it to his glorious, obscured face.
Seriously, not shaving can solve so much. On the left, he looks like an actor trying to convey sadness, but only looks confused. Making the same face on the right, you just want to hug this depressed, fancy lumberjack.
The guy on the right looks like he'd mock the guy on the left's taste in music for being too mainstream. Of course, they're both the same guy. Doesn't matter. Having a beard makes you better than you used to be.

Your beard can say a lot about you. This is especially true when you consider it combined with your hair. This guy, for example. His hair/beard combo says, "I am the king of Atlantis, and I will no longer tolerate talking to fish jokes."
On the right is a man you would trust with your life. He could lead you up a mountain and help guide you on a spiritual vision quest. On the left is a man you wouldn't trust anywhere near a playground.
As a teen, this is what I imagined would happen to me overnight after I lost my virginity. Just look at the confidence boost on display, here. From the top to the bottom of this guy's head, all his hair shines like diamonds.
