Nice "full beard".
If you're 15.

You start having a full beard when you have to hold it back while puking.

Ha Ha!  While all you beardos are spending time increasing your facial fullness, I'm gonna be sexing all the lovely ladies who are turned off by your hirsute disgustingness.

Winnign!

I only keep the beard because I break the f*ck out whenever I shave.  Nothing helps. :(

I happen to like beards, always have. They make a man look more "manly" plus I find that beards make a guys eyes stand out more.

Also, my husband looks like a 12 yr old boy when cleanshaven, as opposed to the 33 yr old man he actually is. With a beard, he looks late 20's anyhow.

I shave every 2 or 3 weeks. I'm just lazy like that. But a small smattering of silver/gray is getting a whole new set of attention I hadn't expected.

lol.

Let them shave.

I'll keep my beard, in part because the last time I shaved it, only one person said it looked good, everyone else, including my wife and kids, said "NEVER DO THAT AGAIN"

And this was before that Oatmeal comic as well.

That sounds like a problem that requires the use of a shaving powder. check out the ethnic section of your supermarket cosmetic aisle.

Beards are fine as long as they come in nice and full- I hate patchy, wispy facial hair.  But it takes a special kind of man to pull off mutton chops.

I can grow a beard, but I feel like I would need to invest in a trimmer to keep it from going all Duck Dynasty on me. I prefer a sleeker beard like Clooney's or Afleck's.

I doubt that all the bearded men have beards just to get your "panties wet." In fact, many probably have beards for reasons unrelated to women. You know, because they are actual people and not sex objects.

That's a relief because most of you look like morons with beards. (I live near Williamsburg. You all look retarded, guys. Seriously.)

Try a quality, double-edge, safety razor.

I had terrible problems, but getting away from the disposable cartridges solved it. Big savings too.

Unless you like your beard, and just say that because you feel self-conscious when the subject comes up. That's cool too.

The perfectly styled hair with the giant beard is the silliest. It's like they're saying, "my super manly, alpha male beard is such a fabulous fashion accessory, it really goes with anything. Oh, I also have these pants in brown, slightly more brown, and slightly less brown."

I'm sure you're right. But this article was specifically about the perceived attractiveness of bearded or non-bearded men so I am unapologetic.

Incorrect.  98% of everything men do is to try to get laid.

Really? I was on a snow holiday recently, I don't tend to shave when on them, and towards the end my stubble was getting heavier and there were two silver patches on either sides of my face, I shaved it off for that reason. Are you telling me people find that attractive?

I have a co-worker who lets his facial hair grow until the silver patches appear.

He looks like a homeless person who wandered into the office for that day or two before he shaves.

Yeah, that's how I was feeling. But as I was staying in a hotel I was, technically, homeless.

There isnt the same stigma for being gay these days. Beards just aren't as necessary.

I just hate shaving, hence I let it grow. I take a trimmer to it when I start to find food in it.

joaquin closet: Two chins, one beard.


I'm in this boat, sorta.   I was blessed with my maternal grandfather's hair (the other side of the family is usually bald by thirty) but cursed with a weak chin.  I discovered one day that I just look a little better with a close cropped full beard like the one pictured in the article.

But frankly, it's like clothing and eyeglasses and anything else that is a matter of personal vanity.  Do what works for you, so long as you don't look like a clown or a slob.

Same here.  Wife absolutely loves the beard.  I was skeptical at first, but now that it's long and full, it has become my hobby.

Also, it covers up my wattle.  I look 10x better with a beard for that reason alone.
