Growing out a beard can dramatically change a man's look, but shaving one off can be even more of a shock, revealing the dreaded post-shave babyface.

Some appeared to look more youthful when going clean-shaven, while others admitted they much preferred how they looked with facial hair.

Incredible transformation

A Canadian man named Jon and his Russian wife named Eva spent 911 days between 2015 and 2018 hitchhiking around the world through 33 different countries. Jon didn’t shave during the entire journey and afterward, he turned his selfies into a time-lapse showing 911 days of beard growth.

The man's beard reached an incredible length of 15 inches before he cut it off so it's not a surprise that he wanted to film the process!

Jon created a timelapse of the beard getting shaved off and his wife’s subsequent reaction, as well. And you know what? It's simply adorable!

People's reaction

People left hilarious comments admitting that the man transformed into an "average white man":

"Man gets 10 years younger in just a few hours with this incredible method! Doctors hate him!"

Another one said:

"That was a beard worthy of our viking ancestors! RIP."

A third one agreeing added:

"from viking to average white dad"

"That beard traveled more than me🤣🤣🤣 lol"

"Your wife is the cutest thing! I've never seen so much love and joy from one face before. I hope to find a woman like that some day!"

That's true that the man looked much more youthful after ditching his beard, as well as giving his long locks a trim.

Still, it's awesome to have a makeover done every now and again! His wife loves him with or without a beard and that what really matters!
