Fellas, if you're looking in the mirror with a fully bearded face thinking maybe it's time to switch things up and go clean-shaven, here's a piece of advice: Don't.


Don't do it.

Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce learned things the hard way when his facial transformation drew widespread (and good-natured) mockery from the Twittersphere.

Travis Kelce looks like Will Ferrell if Will Ferrell was playing Travis Kelce in a movie <a href="https://t.co/b6R2TuZ7dg">pic.twitter.com/b6R2TuZ7dg</a>

Travis Kelce is a good reminder/cautionary tale to never, ever shave your beard.

Kelce didn't seem too offended by the talk, even poking fun at himself with his new Twitter profile picture.

The good news: Kelce has just under a month to grow his beard back before the Chiefs open their season Sept. 12 against the Cleveland Browns.
