The Bearded Bastard makes fine grooming goods for rugged use. Unsatisfied with other companies’ offerings, we wanted to make styling and skincare products that could stand up to rough daily use and still leave you looking and smelling like a man. All of our products are handmade in Austin, Texas from the highest quality natural ingredients, and come in a range of one-of-a-kind scents.

We are passionate about doing things the right way and use only natural ingredients from sustainable and responsible sources. We work hard to track down the finest original ingredients for our products, often from some of the most exotic places on Earth, rather than use petroleum-based synthetics. All of our products are made by hand in Austin, Texas by employees making a living wage with benefits.

The Bearded Bastard was founded by Jeremiah Newton, “The Bearded Bastard” himself, in 2011 when he started making Woodsman Mustache Wax out of his Austin studio. Originally formulated to tame his trademark handlebar ‘stache, word soon got out about the wax’s impeccable hold and cedar scent and its cult status spread around the world. Today, The Bearded Bastard sells products for styling beards, mustaches, and hair, products for a better shaving experience, all-natural skincare, and distinct colognes.

Expertly crafted and hand mixed in our Austin lab using the world’s finest plant oils and natural scents, you will find many imitations of The Bearded Bastard but zero substitutes.

Stay Bold. Stay Bastard.

Need to know: The Bearded Bastard

Kenneth Fish – August 6th, 2014


Let's start a little with my childhood... My father named me after Jeremiah "Liver Eating" Johnson, one of the most famous mountain men there have ever been, at least according to Robert Redford, and my father. I think when I was a kid my father shaved his beard once, I saw him and ran to my mom asking who that strange man in their room was, you can imagine my dad grew it back pretty quickly. I have always wanted to grow facial hair like my pops, since I was not as blessed as him in the facial hair department, I was left with growing as magnificent of a Southern Gentleman's version. I am not going to lie, my facial hair is bushy, scratchy, and a bit of a bastard to control, so I started creating grooming products being handy and all, I mean come on I am named after a famous mountain man. You might ask where the scent comes from, well I have always been drawn to the mountains the smell of cedar, and pine, and all the earthy goodness that goes with it, I normally wore that scent blend much to the pleasure of my friends who seemed to hug me a bit longer than might be normal, you can say that is how I test out all my scents for any product that I am thinking of creating. Well as you probably caught, I am Jeremiah, and I love to make beautiful things, I hope you love my products as much as I do, till next time may your fine facial hair slowly and majestically wave in the breeze, may women everywhere fawn over those follicles, and may you always have a little Bastard upon thine mug!
