When photographer Stacy Thiot and her husband Pierre Thiot created Will It Beard, a Tumblr gallery of beard art, they might not have considered that these photos could set a whole new standard of excellence for modern facial grooming. But when Reddit user AdamTScott uploaded the pictures to Reddit, the photos quickly gained popularity. Stacy and Pierre's fanciful additions of cocktail umbrellas, gummy worms and Legos to Pierre's facial hair take his basic beardly-do to an entirely new level. We guarantee it will inspire you to new levels of stubbly greatness. Take a good look at these jaw-dropping photos, and follow the project on Instagram. One day, this beard just might be famous:
