If you complain about having to shave in the morning, just know that some men are forking over big money to have that problem.

The trend for the hipster look has triggered an increase in the number of facial hair transplants.

Plastic surgeons say some men are willing to pay up to $7,000 to get an instant beard.

Doctors claim they now see several beardless patients a week who want hair removed from their head or their chest and have it transplanted on their face. After the procedure, the new hair grows back normally and can be shaved.

We were curious to see what the ABC13 morning show men would look like if they experimented with facial hair.
