Jared MacDonald, also known as Mac, has been a part of the Austin
Facial Hair Club for two and a half years. Originally from Round Rock,
he heard about the AFHC and decided to take part in the Misprint Beard and Moustache Competition in 2011. After winning 2nd place in the Best Groomed category, he fully joined the club to attend more competitions and events. His current style is a beard with a short mohawk, which he has had for the past 4 years.

Mac usually wears a suit with the sleeves cut off for competitions. The suit is usually accompanied by a large bamboo stick that he refers to as his “drinking stick”. He fills the stick halfway with Sailor Jerry’s rum and the other half with vanilla coke and attaches a plastic tube as the straw, which runs all the way down the stick.
