Like a Celebrity

Kelly Zhu

When talking about his personal style, Mac says, “this is a lot more beard than most people are willing to handle, girls come up and ask if they can touch it, it makes me feel like a celebrity”. One of his most prized possessions is a giant check from the Round Rock, Texas “Hairy Man Festival” where he won 1st place and $500.

“There is this recent stereotype for the past 20-30 years of a real man being clean shaven like swimmers and models, but for the last hundreds of years, men with facial hair have been viewed as real men with power and I think that idea is coming back”, Mac said when talking about how social norms have changed throughout the years.
