Who are they?
The word stems from the acronym Young Urban Creatives. Like the name says they are a group of urban, cosmopolitan and creative young guys who have decided to renounce to a comfortable and stable lifestyle in favor of a major expressive ability and bigger freedom. They are half way between the yuppies and the hipsters.
How to identify them?
One of their passions is the bohemian lifestyle and that explains why their outfits are so casual.
They prefer no to devote so much time to the beard daily and only shave it after 2 or 3 days. Having a beard is this way likely to disappear.
Yuppies don’t care much about having 3-days beards if they were not able to find the time earlier. But what looks like a careless style, hides some beard care. As yuppies have their 2/3-day beards and retouch it every week with a shaver and a 3mm blade. The contour shaver is ideal for this kind of thing, as you can adjust the length and it has a special head for small areas like the nose or the contours around the lips.
