VIDEO: Pau Gasol shaves off his beard for charity


Pau Gasol has been bearded for quite a while now. Sure, when he arrived in Los Angeles he tamed it a little, but we haven’t seen a clean shaven Pau for quite some time. Until today, that is.

Pau lost a bet with his brother Marc, and he paid it off by shaving off his beard. This wasn’t just some silly wager between two brothers, though: it was all in aid of the Gasol Foundation.

So, earlier today, Gasol said “a bet is a bet” and live-tweeted the progress of his big shave. Check out the tweets and videos below.

First, Pau announces the start of his beard shaving…


Next, the Spaniard whips out a beard trimmer and trims away…


Now, it’s time for shaving cream and a razor…


And then…that’s it! I present to you; a clean shaven Pau Gasol:


So, not only did Gasol help raise money and awareness for his foundation, but he also gave us a tutorial in beard shaving. Thanks, Pau!
