Bearded Oklahoma for Oklahoma Today Magazine

Oklahoma is one of the country’s most beard-friendly states. The American Mustache Institute, a St. Louis-based group advocating for the rights of mustachioed Americans since 1965, ranked Oklahoma City the nation’s fourth-most facial-hair-friendly metro. They achieved this humorous ranking using data like monster truck ownership and the number of nightclubs admitting adult males wearing tank tops. Tulsa wasn’t far behind at number 32 out of 100. Humor notwithstanding, in recent years, beards have become as common on men as whiskers on a walrus.
