    I have only ever had a BEARD beard once or twice, but I could not tell you the last time that I was clean-shaven. The trimmed beard just suits my face.

    I have quite a closely trimmed beard (a fair bit longer than stubble, but not what I would call bushy in the slightest) - I love it. As I hurtle towards my mid 30s small flecks of grey are appearing which my partner seems to love.

    I don't have a beard but I do have a moustache. It takes balls to go moustache only!

    Having a trimmed beard is quite popular right now. Whenever I shave, I look like a 19-year old who just hit puberty. It's crazy the difference a beard can make.

    Default Beard or no?

    I love a beard... on me.. when i am clean shaven i do look much younger i feel naked for some reason the most of the times i rock a 6/7 days beard.. my record is having a 2 months beard... and had a lot of compliment from women.. but it makes me look aggressive and older... but i still love it makes it sophisticated.

    It also depends if you can have a solid beard.. if you can wear it and if not.. keep it clean



    I hate the fact that i have shaved it.. i feel better with it.

    Cheers

    I came across a new term yesterday and had to Google it. Apparently these dudes in the tartan shirts have a new name...Lumbersexuals!

    Lumbersexual - a young urban man who cultivates an appearance and style of dress (typified by a beard and check shirt) suggestive of a rugged outdoor lifestyle.

    No, it makes me look old. Some like it and say it makes me look distinguished or whatever, but I don't want to look 20 years older. Clean shaven most people think I'm 10 years younger than I am.

    I always have stubble though, I never shave as my skin gets too irritated.

    The trendy beard thing will be over soon enough!

    Exactly. It depends utterly on the individual.

    I used to have a beard on my 20's to look older, but it itches and after a few years of maintaining it, I went into a clean shaved face since.

    There's nothing nicer than a nice, soft, fluffy beard

    My better half stopped shaving after being fed up with irritated, itchy and breaking-out skin (and believe me, he's tried everything). The itching when growing it out stops after around two weeks; he's still shaving his neck, and trims his moustache and beard every week so it looks well-kempt. His beard is 2 inches long max - he works in an office as a manager and it doesn't look out of place when he dresses smartly.

    As for people saying beards are icky and scruffy - well, that's more a reflection of the individual than the facial hair itself. It goes without saying that it should be washed every day like any other body part, and after messy meals such as hamburgers, hot dogs etc.

    Acqua di Parma, Burberry, Tom Ford, Jack Black and smaller, independent companies make beard oils which condition and fragrance the hair. It doesn't have to be expensive though; one of the best ones we've found is Garnier's Ultimate Blends Coconut Oil. It's inexpensive, smells good, and lasts forever because you only need a little.

    If I could I would, but it's patchy, wispy even.
    It's probably for the best because I don't think it would work for me like it does most actors.

    Beard or no beard? It's like comparing coffee and tea. Personally i love having a beard and looks good on me.. without a beard i look like a child. It all comes to your personal preferences if you like it and can have it grow a beard, if it grows like p*bic hair.. get rid off it. Some people look better with or without. Also.. never ever shave/grow a beard based on what other people say especially your GF they have to accept you for the way you are. Enjoy..

    I vote no to beards too. At least if you're planning on kissing anyone. They can look ok, though most men look better without, but they don't feel nice.

    I prefer no....it always remind of like something weird on my face.

    Personally, I prefer clean shaven men.

    None for me, clean shaven. Just picked up a new arc5 shaver which has been a big improvement over my old one for how close it shaves for a electric.

    I think the men with the small bread looks more handsome than clean shaved.

    Default Re: Beard or no?

    I used to be clean shaven (loved wet shaving, left a little stubble around the mustache/chin area, because I look weird completely clean shaven).

    I've gained a lot of weight (I'm 6 foot tall, went from 200-220 to 265-300lbs) so I keep a beard to help frame my face, hide some face fat.

    When I get my weight back down I'll be clean shaven again, but for now I wear my beard (and hair) like this for the most part (faded beard, low cut tapered sides and neck);

    If you can make it look good because it is you and you make it part of your distinctive look with cleanliness and character, then do it. Yes.

    But if you are just trying to follow the hipster trend that is going around these days (the lumberjack beard look especially for those guys at the gym stupid) I would advise no. Because people are chuckling at you.
