Even if you’ve never tuned in to A&E’s breakout hit Duck Dynasty — and you are seriously missing out! — you probably still know this family of Louisiana duck hunters for one thing: their beards. The Robertson boys — Willie, Jep, Jase, Al — have become defined by their full facial hair, but back in the day, the brothers sported a much more clean-cut look. And what a look it was! Who knew they were hiding such handsome mugs underneath all that bristle!
Now, some people may prefer their more rugged look. And clearly, the beards are doing wonders for the brothers’ careers: Their holiday album is sitting atop the Billboard charts and Barbara Walters just named the Robertsons to her 10 Most Fascinating People of 2013 list, alongside Kimye and Miley. But let’s take a moment to reminisce.
