    I've never grown out my facial hair this long. I've had nothing but compliments since I've started growing it, but it's so damn itchy!

    I personally appreciate scruff; so I'd say keep it. There are grooming things you can do to make it less itchy (conditioner, etc.).

    Since I have to shave every day for work, I totally envy you guys who can scruff it out.

    Clean shaved looks better on about 99 percent of everyone, except my Jewish grandmother.

    Slather on some "leave in" hair conditioner on the emerging Face Fuzz. It will soften up the stubble (and the skin underneath) and stop the itching.

    I think the clean-shaven look is better.

    Shave it. You look decent with facial hair. But your complexion and facial features are well suited for a clean shaven look.

    It won't continue to be itchy.

    If you really want to commit an unnatural act every day, then shave it. Otherwise, don't.

    FWIW, I'd suggest that you keep the beard and allow it to grow in just a little bit thicker & longer.

    Jaggal saidI might be in the minority, but I say keep it. Facial hair is damn sexy (But not a very long beard).


    I agree. It's at a perfect length in your picture. Keep it until the winter ends -- be grateful for that scruff!

    it looks great! Though if you're uncomfortable then there's no point in having it

    Keep it. I think it looks on its way to greatness. At least give it a try to grow into a fuller beard. No harm in trying. Keep it trimmed an inch or half below the jawline (IMO) so you wont have that scraggly look. The itchiness will go away, I promise.

    Post pics soon of the progress.

    I'm not usual a scruff fan, but it totally works on you. Keep it.

    Brag! You look good either way! icon_smile.gif

    I like hairy and smooth guys. Bearded and clean shaven. It's all good, no bias here. But! ...bears & beards are a trend now as much as mullets were in the 80's. Of course you're going to get more "keep the beard" votes. It's the trend of the moment after all.

    As with all trends, take heed not to become a fashion victim.

    Some of these victims look like they're trying too hard too look mature. Or manly. Which only enhances how they are neither mature... nor manly. You are very cute, young and you are not fat. Enhance what you have! Don't use a beard! ...but if you must, don't let it grow too much.
