The most famous beard in the NFL is again no more as Brett Keisel held his annual "Shear Da Beard" charity fundraiser on Thursday night. The Pittsburgh Steelers defensive end has held the event for three years running and each has culminated with the shearing of a beard he's started and not touched since the start of the previous season.

But while Keisel's charitable cutting is almost becoming routine, there was at least one person in Thursday's crowd that was really taken aback by the dramatic change on the two-time Super Bowl champion's mug.


A clean-shaven Keisel took the stage to "Sharp Dressed Man," unrecognizable to many, including his two-year old daughter Grace.

"My daughter came in the door and she was like who is that. I don't know him," said Keisel. "I had to get my voice out toher and make sure she realized it was me talking to her. She finally warmed up to me."

Shear Da Beard benefited the cancer programs at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh at UPMC, with the money going towards the continued research the hospital does as well as various programs.
