Hello, and welcome to the first blog post from Windy City Beards! What is Windy City Beards you might be asking yourself? WCB's goal is to promote facial hair acceptance here in the Chicagoland area, the midwest states, and the world at large. We will be doing this by providing an online space for facial hair information, club activities & competition news, pictures of some amazing beards and mustaches, and a web store that will offer local products that are a cut above the rest to keep your beards and mustaches looking lean and mean.
Each blog WCB posts will contain information like grooming tips, proper beard and mustache care and maintenance, and product reviews for the products we use on an everyday basis. We will also try to keep everyone up-to-date on the local beard and mustache club's meetings and competitions as a way to help the local facial hair community flourish and become stronger as a whole. While we are on that subject, the 3 local beard and mustache clubs (Beards of the Old Northwest - Chicago Chapter, Chicago Beard & Mustache Club, and the Chicago Beardsmen) will be hosting a competition some time this summer, so stay tuned for updates pertaining to that and look for our table at the competition.
The founders of Windy CIty Beards are Aaron Powell, and me, Chris Sanchez. We also happen to be the President and Vice President of a local beard and mustache club, Beards of the Old Northwest - Chicago Chapter. Because of this involvement in the local facial hair community, we have collectively noticed a lack of information & organization, as well as no one-stop-shop for quality facial hair goods here in the midwest. Thus, Windy City Beards was born.
As a special way of saying welcome to Windy City Beards, we will be offering a special coupon code good through the month of May that will offer free shipping on all orders over $55. The code, WCBCOPEN, can be entered during checkout. We thoroughly hope that you choose to keep checking in on WCB, and allow us to quench your thirst for all things facial hair here in the Windy CIty.
