Surprisingly few U.S. Presidents have worn beards—only 9 out of 44 according to Wikipedia, although between 1861 and 1913 all Presidents but two had some form of facial hair, a golden era for fans of the whiskered look.
At my agency we were strategizing, coming up with content marketing ideas for Beardbrand, and we thought it could make for a funny blog post to show the 2016 U.S. Presidential candidates with beards. We ran it by Beardbrand, but they have a strict no-politics policy for their content, which is understandable and probably wise. But we had already hired one Mr. Hrach Drambyan via UpWork to create 10 images for us, and we thought they were too funny to not post somewhere, and Beardbrand said that was fine as long as it was clear they weren’t endorsing it, so here we are.
