Beards

  1. Beards


    With fall approaching (it's still 99 where I'm at) how many of you guys grow beards?

    I'm a mid-western man at heart so even the near triple digit heat won't hold me back, I've been growing mine for the past 5 weeks.

    Mine grows a little gnarly but eff it, it'll come in handy when I'm back in Cleveland the end of October.

  2. I grow a modest one every now and then. Then I get sick of it, because it starts to get in the way of eating with a clean chin. Then I grow it back again, because I think it makes me look a bit older and I'm too lazy to shave my chin every day :P

  3. I was at that point last week, it was extremely annoying.

    I think I may go for the long haul, not shave or trim til next summer.

  6. I only grow a beard if I'm doing a lot of field work to keep the mosquitoes off my face. Otherwise I try to keep it clean shaven.

  7. I grow mine for a week on avg. My week looks like most guys month. I have an ussue growing it longer for several reasons 1) it is extremely coarse and thick most clippers pull rather than cut when its long. 2) i am an ethnic mut scottish/austrian and sicilian so its like a clusterf@@& of colors reds, brown and some black. 3) im bald so a gigantic beard looks a tad out of place. But like i stated before a week and its a respectable beard any more than 2 and its a nightmare

    Funny how little kids react to facial hair, especially if you're gone for a little while and you leave with none and come back with a thicker beard.

  9. Bringing this old thread back to life now that Beards are modern !?

    What's your take on it all ?
    Can you grow one ?

    I look like a homeless for the first weeks of growing by Beard but now Im 5 weeks in to my latest Beard "cycle" i look like an old sailer !

  10. I like that most people don't equate facial hair with looking disheveled anymore.

    I could always grow one but never let it grow to an appreciable length until I was 23-24 years old. Now it's full all the time to varying levels of coverage.

    Confession: my beard grows in red so I dye it brown once a week so it matches the hair color on my head.

    I have two problems with males who grow beards:

    Justin Timberlake beard-havers - that's a boys beard, not a man's beard. Beards are for men, not boys. If I can see more skin than hair its not a beard - wash that mess off your face. You look silly.

    Ungroomed beards - groom yourself man! Use a clipper and keep it neat. Even if it's long - trim and groom regularly.

    Yup, I think it's gross when long facial hair looks like gross pubes.
    If I live every moment believing, then the chaos in my heart will be a beautiful thing.-
    I am in love, but not in love with someone or something, I am in love with my life. And for the first time, in a long time, everything is inspiring.-

  13. When I say appreciable length I'm not saying zz top length haha.

    I don't have an exact measurement as to where I draw the line but I wouldn't place it in either of the categories you've mentioned.

    Who are these "most people" that you are talking about. Facial hair is disgusting. It makes most look like a slob, others look homeless, and still others that now think it's trendy just look like douche-bags.

    The most people I'm referring to would be those I associate with, and interact with on a daily basis. I realize I made a generalization .

    I gotta agree with you

    And it is usually accompanied by unkempt hair as well. Skinny pants slob is a fashion statement today

    If you're talking about guys who can't be bothered to keep it trimmed and let it grow in long, shaggy and unkempt that's one thing but that has less to do with the facial hair itself and more to do with someone not bothering to keep up some basic grooming.

    I grew a beard many years ago when I had shingles and couldn't shave. My wife said that I looked a lot better, (and so did many other people too) and didn't want me to shave it off. I keep it well trimmed so I don't look like a "slob" or "disheveled" and since I've had it since 1993 whether or not it's "trendy" is completely irrelevant to me.

    Yup! You beard wearing guys need to start to promote grooming because more often than not that is the beard of today. It truly appears that they are simply to lazy to shave and or groom in general.

    Then there's the long black socks, shorts and sandles and the skinny jeans and extra medium t-shirts

    Better is subjective.

    The skinny jeans thing kind of baffles me, but then again for better or worse I seem to have inherited the Puerto Rican side of my families backside and legs (squats aren't helping matters much here either) so I couldn't wear skinny jeans even when I was skinny (if for some unknown reason I ever wanted to wear them that is).

    "a study in the 1970s and another one three years ago come to similar conclusions: Women are more attracted to, and more likely to develop a long or short-term relationship with, men with light beards or stubble. They also find men with full beards more aggressive and mature, but also the least attractive. Men with no facial hair were rated the second-least attractive, but also least likely romantic partners."

    LMAO!. What are you trying to prove here?.

  22. I usually always have stubble, but most women complain that it scratches them when making out. So I've just stopped kissing them during sex. Problem solved lol

    each of those guys pictured went from good looking guys to slobs with those beards.

    Additionally I don't choose my grooming style based on what woman like. I do me...

    Agreed. Some people weren't meant for full beards. Facial pubes are not attractive to anyone, gotta keep it groomed, and if it doesn't grow thick, keep it short.

    Agreed. Just cause you can doesn't mean you should.

    Ex: Yoga pants on ladies....

    Maybe it's time to shave. With any luck you'll find that pet rock you lost in 1973.

    That was my dad when I was a kid. But he kept it groomed and trimmed.

    I'm not at all anti beard. I am, as mentioned above, anti facial pubes on guys who can't, or shouldn't wear beards.

    It's like the dude with the Gallagher (90% wont know who he is) hair style growing down his back; dude, you have a chrome dome - get a haircut already!!!

  30. I love a scruffy face!!!
