I'm a strong proponent of the open beard. I'm consistently telling Punjabi Sikh men that Americans can not wrap their brains around beard tying. It's much stranger for an American to see a tied beard (with nets and strings, etc.) then it is to see a flowing beard. I assume the British must think beard tying is neat, but most Americans have a harder time understanding the beard tying than the turban.
