Beard or no beard - what do you prefer?


(Jacqueline Austen) #1

I have just transformed my husband from Grizzly Adams to Brian Adams with a beard trim. I love my husbands facial hair but I know there are many of us out there who feel differently about whiskers.

In the interest of science (of course) how do you feel about facial hair?

That depends as a well trimmed goaty can look great on a man both my DH and brother have had one in the past.

However I prefer men to be clean shaven. I hate being hugged by a man with facial hair it’s just too scratchy

So long as hubby has more hair on his face than me, I am happy!

No beard, definitely. My hubby is a bit bald and I think men should not have more hair on their chin than on their heads lol

Having said that do think Hugh Jackman carried it off OK for his latest role :blush:

True, but would you want to live with Wolverine? lol those claws could be dangerous :smile:
and he’s always rather grumpy lol

Oh I do love a bit of facial hair. My hubby is a bit of a funny one with his beard though, the more people say they don’t like it the longer it gets lol. He likes the metal tufty style beard (don’t know if thats a good description) no hair on his cheeks or jaw line but long on the chin, it sometimes gets long enough to put a bobble in it and my girls often cuddle in to him while stroking his beard.

Lol. This thread is making me chuckle :slight_smile:
Hugh Jackman can be grumpy with me anytime … Hehehehe
Swiftly moving on…
I’m with the whole beard thing. To a certain degree. I don’t like to see men with huge unruly beards that have gathered crumbs from lunch … Yucky lol
My husband as got a cute beard. Nicely trimmed and neat and clean shaven around the beard if that makes sense.

It really depends - I like my husband equally with beard or without. But Kit Harrington in the Game of Thrones series will always be sexier with a beard to me.

Now you mention it Liz @BigBirdLittleBird viggo mortensen who plays Aragon in LOTR always looks odd to me without his beard and flowing locks :smile:

My daughter would love this post and she will say most definitely a man has got to have a beard, the bigger the better. She is single and so shallow, she will only go out with a fella who has a beard. And we don’t have many men here like that for her lol :smiley: Me, i don’t mind stubble but not a fan of the beard although some men do look a lot better with a beard than not.

When I first met my OH he had a neatly trimmed beard but he let himself go a bit after we got married and ended up looking like a member of the IRA! That was in the late seventies, now he has no beard and more hair on his chest than his head! Short beards yes, long beards noooooo…

I’m in the Squeaky-Clean-Chops camp! Don’t mind a bit on the chest mind - not mine, obviously! Lol!

Loving this! So glad I started it. Not sure about the 50:50 beard @bojanglies - a niche look I think.

The beard has to be well looked after, but I prefer facial hair on a man than no facial hair. Although, having said that, it does depend, as some men look better without a beard. I just think it looks masculine. Don’t like the Led Zeppelin type beards though :frowning: Reminds me of the Roald Dahl story of The Twits .

I prefer clean shaven and I definitely don’t get it when men shave their head but grow a beard!


(Jan Ryan) #17

I like neat beards, the hubster has a goatie and keeps it very tidy, I don’t like a beard to be scruffy on the neck.
Di, my hubs shaves his head weekly :slight_smile:


(Leathermeister) #18

Hubby is clean shaven, grey stubble is not my favourite look. If a man has a beard I like it to be short and well trimmed very sexy look.


(Marg) #19

I love beards and hairy chests, my hubby has a lovely neat beard (at the moment). I think a man without hair on his chest looks like a plucked chicken (yuk). Marg. x

I agree with you Marg @memicrafts Men with shaved or waxed chests are just WRONG - as my 10 yr old would say.
