    Beards

    So, how many people here have beards and/or mustaches? Secondary question is how long are they? Tertiary question is how many feel weird as hell without one?

    I ask because I had a goatee from 2003 until 2010 when I was interviewing for a job, and then didn't grow it back until this summer. I felt naked the entire time I couldn't stroke my beard. Currently, since I haven't trimmed it since May, my beard is currently at 3.5 inches (usually keep it trimmed to 1/8"). I will admit that it felt weird as hell not having a beard to play with in meetings and while I was with friends.

    Re: Beards

    I had a beard in college off and on, then transitioned to a goatee. I like that the best. I'm not allowed to sport any facial hair at work besides a mustache, and I don't like looking like a porn star from the 70's, so I'm left with only growing my goatee back on my days off. It stays pretty short because of that.

    I hate not being able to let it fully mature.

    I rock the goatee often. Never a beard. I'm single and a beard won't get me the type of girl I am looking for.

    Re: Beards

    I've had a goatee forever. From what I can remember, the only time I didnt have one is I cut it off for my sisters wedding. Feel naked without it.

    Re: Beards

    I hate not having facial hair period. I have a beard year round, fairly short in the summers but never long either, 2 inches max. It comes in nice and no crazy patches of nothing but I hate shaving so it is perfect.

    I actually rock shaggy hair and the goatee. In fact, many people have told me (from my boss, my parents, family friends, ex-girlfriends) that I look like shaggy from scooby doo.

    Meh. My head isn't shaved, I rock a mohawk. At least, I used to until I went interviewing. Now it's just kept at a 1/2" length ever since I got my first job.

    Re: Beards

    I've got a goatee about 2inches long, and a moustach about 1-1/2 inches long that I wax into a handlebar. I'd like to go to a full beard, but it's not full enough on my cheeks to look good.


    You can spend a lot of time and money picking out the perfect floral bouquet for your date ... but you're probably better off checking if you have bad breath and taking the porn out of the glove compartment.

    The moral: you gain more by not being stupid, than you do by being smart. Smart gets neutralized by other smart people. Stupid does not.

    Re: Beards

    I usually grow a beard for the winter, then keep a goatee in the summer. I've kept the beard all summer so far, but I keep it very short (whatever the #2 trimmer attachment is). My wife likes the beard. In a year or two when I interview for a job I'll have a tough decision on whether or not I will have to trim the beard.

    Re: Beards

    Can't grow facial hair without getting the itchy part. Nor would I want to. Hot chicks, including my wife don't like facial hair at all. You ever see a hot chick with a bearded guy? Only if they are famous or rich


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    Re: Beards

    In college, I kept a goatee and really long sideburns. In grad school, I grew my hair long and had a very heavy beard (it wasn't cool at the time, either...definitely saw a drop in attention from the opposite sex). Now that I'm a working stiff, about the only thing I can get away with is a neatly trimmed beard in the wintertime. It comes in pretty thick, so it only lasts for a month or two before it becomes too much.

    Re: Beards

    Currently at 4 days of beard. More out of laziness than trying to make a fashion statement of any kind.
