Who uses 🧔 Bearded Person emoji?

On social media and in texts, the bearded person emoji is frequently used in content referring to actual persons, almost always a cisgendered man, with beards, especially the big, bushy ones popular in the late 2010s.

With this trend has come all kinds of groups and organizations using beards as a fun way to promote its causes, like No-Shave November or Movember.

In professional sports, especially hockey, some players (and their fans) grow “playoff beards,” not shaved until the team is eliminated from or wins the playoffs.

All those beards require maintenance, and so the bearded person emoji often tags content dealing with male grooming, a burgeoning industry in the late 2010s. In this way, it’s often paired with the barber pole or scissors emoji.

Often times, the emoji is used to remark that such bearded fellows are handsome, many men and women liking the beard for its rugged, rough-around-the-edges sexiness—as long as it’s well groomed dudes.

The association between beards and “being a man,” for better or worse, is a tight one, and so the bearded person emoji stands in for men more generally—or at least dudes thinking that’s what they are.

In LGBTQ slang, a beard is someone who acts or is used as someone’s partner to conceal that they are gay. Occasionally, the bearded person alludes to this slang.
