You don't have to qualify for the Beard and Mustache Championships to know what an epic facial hair transformation feels like. Women have pounds of make-up, eyelashes, and brow equipment as ammunition for a new look, but for most men, all they have is their beard. However, after looking at the following list you will probably agree that that's all they need.

In this before-and-after photo compilation, men undergo subtle or dramatic beard trims that turn some of them into unrecognizable versions of themselves. Who knew that a couple of snips could turn your average joe into a GQ front page ready model. Scroll down below to see some amazing transformations and don't forget to upvote your favs!
