Someone Told Him To Grow A Beard. He Did, And It Completely Transformed His Life!

February 17, 2018

At 21 years old, Gwilym Pugh started a successful insurance company in London from his spare bedroom.

However, working from home and working 12 hour days caused him to gain a lot of weight.

Gwilym decided he needed to be active so he joined a folk band. One day, his barber advised him to grow a beard to look the part.

As he was shedding pounds and growing out his beard, Gwilym created an Instagram account. Eventually, Welsh tailor Nathan Palmer stumbled across it, and the rest is history.

This is how Gwilym looks now.
