Many still wonder when beard became the trendsetter of men’s fashion world. With no minimal cue, people somehow love growing their beards. Everybody has their particular signature style of maintaining a beard and it is mostly based on the kind of face, color, and other factors. For some, face with the beard is a preferable way to look at social events or in general, for others, things get little over the roof and they gradually grow obsessed with the facial hair going on growing it like hell.
Now, things were little bit latter for Josh. This 38-Year-Old man went growing his beard for the tenure of 12 years and that already pops up an image inside our heads which reflects a human being who just walked off his cave. His shocking transformation after the makeover at the segment of the Oprah Winfrey Show stunned his girlfriend!
The woman literally went beaming when she saw her man transformed from Grizzly Adams to stylish and sophisticated. Since leaving the military 12 years ago, Josh, 38, has neither shaved nor had a haircut. Sporting a thick, bushy beard and thick, long hair, Josh looked like a “caveman.”
Josh’s girlfriend, Heidi, had no issue with his look, but, as she told the Oprah Winfrey Show, “I just want him to be a little less … hairy.” Heidi said she was even “afraid to kiss him for the first time because I didn’t know where his mouth was.” Not just this, Josh’s wardrobe wasn’t too impressive either. He only wore a white T-shirt, blue jeans and work boots—it was the same thing every day.
Now, after some time, Heidi persuaded Josh to get a much-needed makeover from the experts on the “Oprah Winfrey Show.” Josh agreed, and he challenged the makeover team, “I dare you to make me look better than I do right now.” And, Tim Gunn of “Project Runway” decided to accept Josh’s challenge which changed the course of everything.
Gunn divulged that an apprehensive Josh had needed a lot of therapy during the grooming session; there was a lot of letting go involved. Gunn kept assuring him, “Your healthy hair will grow back.” And you won’t believe just how incredible Josh looked afterward! They didn’t shave his bushy beard clean but cropped it short, and they cut his long hair down to size. Gunn said he didn’t want to take away Josh’s personality, just enhance it.
After the hectic process, Josh stole the show walking on the ramp in a perfectly tailored leather jacket and a pair of stylish jeans, in a red sweater and a smart dress shirt, and in work boots, but stylish ones, the fashion team retained Josh’s personality but added some flair and sophistication. Credits to Gunn, who pulled it off like a charm. Instead of styling Josh the way he wanted him to be, the famous fashion consultant retained Josh’s unique personality by keeping his beard and his character.
“It’s all about reflecting who they are, their core, making them better, enhancing them,” Gunn said. Indeed, Josh’s new look resonated who he is, just smarter and more sophisticated.

“I feel like a new man,” said Josh. Ectastic Heidi was all head over heels in love with him at the moment and she said, “He looks great, and this is exactly what I’ve been trying to get him to do. He still has beard and [facial] hair, but he looks great. I can’t get over it. Thank you, Tim!” said Heidi, beaming in happiness.
