What happens if you only shave half of your face?

“A Beard keeps you warmer”

In a crazy experiment to see if only shaving half his beard would indeed keep half his face warmer, Pete Hickey decided to concentrate his shaving efforts on just 50% of his face for 6 weeks.

His conclusions include:

“Yes, it does feel warmer with a beard.”


“At higher speeds, I found increased wind resistance on the side of my face with a beard.”

So there you go…that clears that one up! (via)
