Wilson is the only
character capable of growing and shaving his Beard. Beardlings and Beardlords are the only method of acquiring Beard Hair when the player is playing any character besides Wilson.

As the beard doesn't grow longer after 16 days and the player loses it on resurrection or by changing
characters, it is most efficient to shave after every sixteenth night. Upon shaving, Wilson's Sanity increases by 10. In terms of gaining sanity, however, shaving every 5 days would yield the best results. Having a beard does not drain Sanity.
Beard Insulation Edit
Wilson's Beard also provides protection from freezing during Winter depending on the size of the beard.
Even though Wolfgang has a manly moustache, he doesn't grow a beard saying his skin is too strong for hair.
Woodie has a beard but says (when examining a Razor): "A true lumberjack never shaves". Therefore, he will not provide Beard Hair.
A good tip is to not shave your beard as Wilson until the first winter is over as the beard provides non-durability warmth during the winter.
Shave your beard after every winter so that it can grow back for the next winter, also providing you with a small sanity boost and quite a bit of hair.
If you shave right after a season ends, your Beard can be a good indication of how long the following season is.
