Beard or no beard

I just shaved my beard for the first time in years. Grow it back or keep clean?

Dragging razor blades across my face never appealed to me… I’m far more comfortable in my beard ... but you do you smile001.gif ... that said, If you have a beard and can’t change a tire, shave! ... ok, stole that from a meme... follow your chismile001.gif


I recently got rid of mine and have since been reminded of what a drag shaving is.

I know. I just hate the chore.


I let my beard do whatever it wants...


Totally team beard.

I didn't vote, I figure a beard, as with a hairstyle, is similar to clothing or jewelry. Change it up at times just to keep things interesting!

I enjoy both on a man. A goatee is attractive but again depending on the man a full beard can be as well as long as it is kept groomed. Do what makes you happy.

I love beards of all kinds, though im the only person that likes mine. I used shave all but my chin, now im kinda chubby and with a shaved face im just too insecure. Do what you want, its your body.

I'm surprised the militant anti-beardists didn't come out in full force.


I would probably suggest "no beard" but I'm not the one who would have to shave your face.


I agree, you look younger without it.

However, even with it, you don't look old.

What about in between? A shorter or more trimmed/defined beard taking up less of your face?

My preference is always a clean face

My words too. I don't enjoy kissing a hairy face. Beards get dirty, musty smelling from food and smoke. It's nauseating to smell while kissing. I've had both and prefer a clean face any day.


I'm always amazed at how young a man looks after he shaves that mop off of his face. Why would anyone want to look older? No beard, all the way!

Women naturally selected us to have facial hair...

@maturin1919 Not this woman


I shaved my goatee & mustache once. My two girls, early teens, had never seen me without facial hair. They were horrified, and demanded I grow it back. I didn't realize I was that ugly. I grew it back. LOL


Beard, for sure!!!


I like a beard on a man, and neatly groomed is my preference. But then again, it is summer here in Oregon, and beards might be too warm!
