Steve Harvey’s Beard: The Family Fued Host Embraces His Gray
A lot of people – especially celebrities – like to hide the fact they’ve aged. They dye their hair, get plastic surgery, and go on what are supposed to be miracle diets or exercise routines. A few, however, decide to embrace the aging process. One such person who finally did just that is Steve Harvey. The Family Feud host has fully embraced his gray as seen in new images taken during Harvey’s most recent family vacation.
Why the change in appearance?
In an interview with Ellen DeGeneres, Harvey talked about his new look. Not only is he now rocking a beard, but he’s stopped dying his facial hair black. Of course, he is definitely still keeping his signature clean-shaven head the same.
While on vacation recently, Steve Harvey forget his mustache dye at home. It was unavailable to him where he was staying in the United Arab Emirates. According to Harvey, he looked in the mirror after a while and decided to see what would happen if he just let everything go – no shaving off the beard, no dying his mustache black.
Why is Steve Harvey keeping the beard?
During the same interview with Ellen, Harvey states the reason he decided to keep the beard is that his wife, Marjorie, likes it. She told him to keep it, and so he did. When Ellen jokingly asked if anyone could not like the beard, Harvey said that he had some haters on Instagram commenting on his photos. They, obviously, did not like the new appearance.

Being the nonchalant, dry comedian the world has come to love, Harvey handled the haters in the best way possible. When some people were making comments about how he looked “old,” Harvey agreed with them! The haters had to stop there, because how can you argue with someone who agrees? Steve Harvey says he is embracing his age and that he feels “eighty-two percent smarter” with his new look.

So, who is the man behind the beard? Most people know Steve Harvey as the host of Family Feud, or from his 1990’s television series The Steve Harvey. He has a host of other acting credits, however.
