"Hey Jake, what are we doing today? We’re going to Wolcott Farms. We’re going to go play with some baby animals and teach us new things about beards also.
Hi, I’m Andy. Right now, we’re traveling in the Can You Handlebar R.V. and we’re on the road. I figured it would be a good time to teach you about the importance of using hair ties. A great time to use them is when you’re traveling. There are a few reasons you might want to use a hair tie. As you might be able to see out the window it’s a pretty stormy day. There’s going to be a lot of wind, a lot of rain that can blow your beard around.
We’re heading to go pet some animals and hang out with them. You might want to keep your beard up too so they don’t chew on it or rip your beard out because that’s pretty painful.
One of the easiest ways to use a hair tie is, if you have a fuller beard just go ahead put it on there and that is a huge help for you. You can also take the hair tie in your hand, put it at the bottom of your beard, twist it a half turn, do that again, and one more time – as long as it’s tight. That will help also. It will keep your beard from blowing away.
One of the other ways you can put your beard up to if you’ve got a longer beard - Take that hair tie, fold your beard in half, put the hair tie on there, twist it, and that will keep your beard up and out of the way. This is a good way to keep your beard up while sleeping too so you don’t rip it out.
A recommendation for hair ties is to use one that doesn’t have a metal band. Those can be pretty painful. They’ll snag your hairs and rip it out. I prefer the thin ones but feel free to experiment with whatever size works for you. Hair ties are pretty cheap."
