Beard Of The Month - October 2013 - John Carrasco
Hello October! The days are growing colder and everyone's beards are growing longer! Whether for personal enjoyment or playoff reasons, facial hair will be keeping many people warm! This month we have John Carrasco claiming the title of Brocouncil.com's Beard of the Month. John and his beard can be seen all over television lately with a new apple commercial, so he may look familiar to many!
While he hasn't competed, his beard is glorious and we just needed to showcase the hairs on his chinny-chin-chin. Mr. October is a happy father of four and an even happier grandfather of twenty! When he isn't with family, he spends his days as an alternative model, which he has been doing for the last four years. Aside from appearing in several commercials, he has been named Model of the Week seven times, was a 48 Hour Film Competition winner, and has done art modeling for very prestigious art classes. In his spare time, you can find him and his beard working up a sweat at the gym!
Keep an eye out, you are sure to spot him in commercials during your favorite TV shows! Keep reading to learn more about John and his beard!
