Beards Clue You In On a Young Amish Man’s Status


Ever wonder about the status of an Amish man? Their beard tells you a whole lot – even more than a wedding band (if they were allowed to wear one). Amish men start growing their beard as soon as they get married. The longer the beard, the longer they’ve been married. Amish men aren’t allowed to have mustaches, though, so those must be shaven.

On the flipside, Amish women have super long hair because they’re not allowed to get a trim. Both men and women run the risk of being shunned by their community if they decide to cut their hair or beards.
