Gentlemen I have been growing a beard since I was 21. That said it has taken many shapes through the years. As a former welder I loved the extra protection from UV, but hated the stink of burning hair. I recently with in the last 6 months found my savior. He'd been there the whole time. That said I started paying attention to scripture instead of just reading words on a page. The scriptures about grooming I found interesting. I have always shaved my widows peak off and always kept my beard lines exact. Scriptures say that we shouldn't do that.....Why? I'm a Why guy!! Well from what I gather is because that's the way he made us. I understand that jobs can tell you how to keep appearances. With that said wouldn't it fall under religious freedom? I worked in the food industry and they made me wear a beard net. They accommodated me and my non religious beard. So now that its a matter of belief would any of your employers?
