Default The Facial Hair Thread

What kind of facial hair if any do you guys have? Beard, stubble, goatee, long sideburns, short sideburns, nothing? Discuss here.

I have long sideburns, it's pretty much all I can grow for now, but it's still good. Eventually I'd probably go with stubble or beard, I'm happy with my sideburns though.


So how about you?

I can't grow facial hair for shit. It all comes in as gross scraggily nastiness. What some people grow in a day takes me a week at least. I've always wanted to try a goatee.

I've currently got a fairly impressive beard. Probably about 3 inches long.

Have you ever tried to grow anything? I mean try for like a month or so maybe, you could get something, it took me a couple of months I think to grow my sideburns. Or is it patchy?

But yeah, my cousin's boyfriend can't grow any facial hair either, it wouldn't suit him though.

I normally stay clean shaven, but can grow a decent moustache, and that's about all. The connectors that are on the edge of my lips won't grow beyond peach fuzz, which has been a source of annoyance for years. I can grow sideburns, but not too thick; it's more of a gangsta rapper beard.

I can grow a pretty good Abe Lincoln, but just can't connect the goatee.

Full beard but not very thick (there are pix around here in a few places). It probably looks a little thinner than it actually is because it's red/blonde. The cheeks don't grow very fast or thick, which is why I started with a mustache in grad school and a Van Dyke (goatee with mustache) when I graduated. Then, I got sick and was hospitalized without my razor for a while. When I got better I decided to give up shaving, but I trim frequently and a little too obsessively, which is another reason (besides that think cheek hair) I'll probably never have a Grizzly Adams beard (which I would love).

I might go back to a Van Dyke some day, but I'll probably never be clean shaven again. I personally think facial hair is more manly and better looking on 99% of guys. Plus, I'm round faced and short so without the beard I look baby faced.

Oh, and my beard mostly grows slow, so I can say from experience that even slow growers can cultivate a beard eventually. It's just a matter of whether you're willing to have a creepy, pubey beard for a month (it helped that I was in the hospital at the time, where people are willing to overlook many hygiene issues).

Mine is pretty Grizzly Adams-ish at the moment (especially if I comb it out, like I do on Halloween for my lumberjack costume).

Unfortunately since I work in corporate America I have to always be clean shaven. My face would look too many for too long considering how long it would take me to grow something resembling a beard. My father used to have a full beard and my brother can grow one no problem but it seems to have skipped over me.

I have to shave for work, but when I take my two week vacation every summer, I grow out the beard. Then curse my job when I have to shave it.

But, I'm looking for a new job, so if I find one that allows facial hair, I'm never shaving again.

I wonder if my kids will have the rapid, full beard growth their Dad is blessed/cursed with (depending on your point of view. I like it, but if I had to keep clean shaven, it would SUCK).

I think it sucks that clean shave is considered the de facto "professional" look. 150 years ago and it was pretty much the opposite with top political and industrial leaders sporting all kinds of facial hair.

Now, they say you should go to job interviews clean shaven too, but since I graduated with a goatee I've never gone to a job interview clean shaven. If that's why HR isn't going to hire me, screw them. I keep it neat, anyway. It's not like one-day stubble or something.

Not to brag, but I think eventually in a couple of years or so (maybe less if I'm extremely lucky), I'll be able to grow a full proper beard, if I take after my father, and from where I already get the odd stray hairs, it looks as if I will. He has to shave pretty high up too so I should be able to get a really nice big beard. Of course I could be wrong, but either way I think I'll be able to get at least a pretty good beard, but I might be tempting fate here by saying this.

Man, I'd hate to have to shave because work made me. That would suuuck. What line of work are you in?

Yeah, I don't get it. If it's nice and neat, then it can look smart, heck even stubbles if done properly look smart.

Yeah the only reason a work place should dictate whether you have a beard is if it's for safety. Firemen, for instance have to be clean shaven so their masks can make full contact with their skin.

Yeah, I completely agree. I have a friend who's gonna work in the fire station or something like that, he currently has a beard (well chinstrap and moustache), and when he goes there he'll only be able to have a goatee or van dyke.

I will admit that certain food prep people might want to be clean shaven, too, if only because the requisite facial hairnet if you aren't makes you look like an idiot.

Well, I'd still think of that as in the realm of safety, health and safety I suppose, but there are others beside firemen. I could see Norelco, for instance, insisting their executives be shave.
