    Default Facial Hair

    Do you prefer?! Just finished my shaving ritual so i wanted to ask something that is bugging me for some time! Not only a matter of beard, but mustachia, sideburns...What do you sport? I do sport sideburns sometimes and i had some sorts of beards in the past! This is question about composers too, do you know some famous beards/stashes...Dvorak and Stravinsky come to my mind!

    Mostly cleanshaven, I let my beard grow over weekends and during holidays. I've never seriously grown a beard - that's because I couldn't really grow a serious beard. I did try to grow Midge Ure/Mr Spock sideboards for a while...

    (BTW, 'sideboards', please, for British readers).

    I think polls like this are still supposed to go in the Community forum.

    Nope, clean shaven all the time, don't like beards at all.

    I grew a beard once during a holiday when I was 30-35 or so. Got rid of it quickly after I came back. Shaving every day.

    I used to 'beard up' for the winter when I was younger but if I were to grow one now I would look like a cross between an aging badger and Captain Birdseye.

    Dont know, buddy boi i saw in the description that ALL polls must be posted here! Let mods decide! I think you ''carry'' a beard too?!
    There is a rising trend that beards are SEXY (again)!
    Dont know...I think its a hipsty thing! There is something about being clean shaven, that is kinda cool, invokes the order and purity lol

    I used to have a mustache and looked pretty good with it in my 20's. Folks told me I looked like Tom Selleck.

    When I got married, the wife asked me to shave it off.

    So I shaved it off. Been clean shaven ever since. I shave every other day, though.

    What about those without beard growth, e.g. most women?

    Edit: I didn't see this one:

    “Woodland night, refreshing wonder,
    whom a thousandfold I greet.
    After all the worldly thunder,
    oh, how are your murmurs sweet!
    Dreamily I settle, weary,
    on the mossy bed,
    and I feel as if my eerie
    anguish could again be shed.”

    Ask one of the ladies on the forum, I am sure they have something to say about it.

    I tried a mustache in college, and I've taken a couple long weekends without shaving out of curiousity. Facial hair makes me look mean and scary. I prefer the cherubic look.

    A beard all my life,every two or three months I use a beard trimmer just in order to be recognizable.

    I used to grow a holiday beard but then during a period of illness 10 years ago I grew a more substantial one. On returning to work I kept it and it's been there ever since.

    It gets trimmed twice a week with a beard trimmer. My barber is very keen to see it kept 'modern', that is, at just beyond stubble length.

    I don't think I would ever shave it off now.

    I've always had a beard; might have born with it.
