    For the first time in, oh, my whole life, I'm attempting actual facial hair that doesn't look like I forgot to shave. I'm growing a soul patch and so far, so good.

    What are everyone's thoughts on facial hair in general?

    In general, I think most men look much better without it.

    It depends on the man...his looks
    what his sense of style is
    and what he wants to portray
    Facial hair can either enhance or cover up certain facial features

    Well some men look really good and some it isn't helpful. Of course its always the interpretation isn't it? I'm pretty clean shaven, but I think facial hair can be very hot..again depending on the guy and what the facial hair is. Goatees can be great, beards maybe not so much. I think if your going to have some, it needs to be in good order. Scraggly stuff
    will only serve as a negative. Good luck there.

    Well in the past I have always been clean shaven. I had to shave every day hated it. I just recently started growing a goatee and the response has been very positive. I never thought I would like it as much as I do and I can only attribute that to it's salt and pepper color. The challenge has been keeping it groom and manicured. But that's what I pay my barber for.

    The hard part was also getting past that itching stage...OMG! It was the worst.

    I not sure how long I will keep it. It may very well be only a seasonal look.icon_biggrin.gif

    Facial hair is so '70s. It used to be de rigeur. I wouldnt look at a guy who didnt have facial back in the '70s. Now, I dont care for facial hair at all. I worked hard to get my bf to take his goatee off and keep it off. ... I won! ... icon_biggrin.gif

    Depends on the guy and what look he is trying to pull off. Soul patch, goatee, chin strap, etc. can be really, really hot on the right guy. I almost always prefer a some scruffiness on a guy versus clean shaven. I haven't shaved my face in 8 years. I hated doing it, it always caused problems with my complexion, and I like the way look with scruff so I just trim a couple of times a week.

    I've had it. I've not had it - both are in my profile and it's 50/50 in popularity.

    Facial hair looks good on some guys, but not on most.

    And I think it makes most guys look heavier than they are; though I am told many guys wear beards to hide the fattness in their faces - or even a second chin.

    As for a soul patch - only if you are really a beatnik jazz trumpeteer of a certain age.

    For me...some facial hair is hotter for me. Some guys, no offense to anyone just my pref., look to much like twinks or funny looking with out it. Some guys do look good with out it and some don't, but my pref. is my guy has to have facial hair. As long as it neatly trimmed or he has some scruffiness to him..its hot to me. icon_biggrin.gif

    Ahhh facial hair.. wish I could grow it, love men that have it..

    Then again, when a guy who is normally scruff has a clean shave it looks HOT.

    Some guys look hot either way... some look hotter with and others look hotter without. It just depends on the guy, his facial structure and his overall image. If its well groomed and complements the man, then I find it very sexy... otherwise, it can be a turn off.

    As far as my own... I look too young and my features tend to look too soft without it, regardless of whether I'm carrying extra weight or not. I have shaved it all off on occasion, but it felt too weird, involved more shaving every day and I couldn't get used to seeing myself in the mirror without it. I can't grow a full beard because there are some places on my face that just won't grow hair, most probably because of my ancestry.

    I used to have a goatee, but shaved it off because there was too much white in it. It really depends on the guy.

    I personally don't like it, but my man loves me with stubble, so I indulge him. I'm dark haired and olive skinned, so I think it makes me look like a terrorist...

    Yah , I've actually had the same question! I'm 18 and I have a full beard that, when sterched out, is 6 and 1/4 inches long. I often wonder if I would look better without it, although I can't bring myself to cut it just yet.

    Personally I think facial hair is hot, especially like, a scruffy sort of thing. On some guys, though, it looks odd and unattractive.

    I guess it all depends on the person.

    If anyone cares to tell me what they think of my beard, that would be much appreciated because I've been toying with the idea of shaving it!

    I think a beard can be nice, but for me yours is too long. Neatly trimmed, occasionally shaggy is ok.

    Some guys look good with facial hair I guess you just have to grow it and then decide. After all you can always remove it. I never thought anything I grew was helping me out so I just kept shaving. The one thing that does look bad is fat guys with goatees. They just make your face look fatter. Sorry guys.

    some guys look awesome in it, some don't (such as myself). i can get away with a day or two's worth of scruff, but i shave it all off (plus clinical duty, no scruff allowed) icon_wink.gif
