James has a signature beard that he started growing in 2009. He had revealed that he was clean-shaven in his high school days. But in college, he had a smaller trimmed beard. And with the start of his NBA career, he stopped trimming it since he was too lazy to do it.

James’ elder brother, Akili Roberson, is a barber. He joked:

To be truthful, I think he started growing a beard because he saw mine coming in and he got hair on his face.”

“He won’t say that’s what it was, but he won that battle.”

However, James disagrees. He said:

You see his beard? It’s terrible, I didn’t get it from him, I just got it. I didn’t get it from him.”
