I've got the chin strap thing going but with a LOT more hair. This is an older picture but my beard looks the same.

My guess is he is the only guy in the pic with a chin strap since he said he wears a chin strap.

Default Re: Facial Hair

I don't think facial hair is ever "in" for me. I can't recall a ton of people I know who've ever openly accepted what I've grown. Whether it's a beard, chops, circle beard, mustache or any sort of combination, it more or less just draws a bunch of disappointed head shakes, laughter, and "Well, I don't hate it per se" types of responses from my peers.

Even with that in mind, I still tend to hit a period every year or so where I grow something new knowing full well it's going to look ridiculous. It's fun to experiment and it's wonderfully refreshing when I inevitably shave it all off and return to status quo.

As others have mentioned, I think facial hair being "in" is largely dependent upon how someone handles themselves. If you're confident in what you're growing and you can pull it off, it'll take you a long way. It's similar to how we choose what we wear. If we're just copying the hot style, there's a much better chance of things coming out forced and contrived. On the flip side, if you're just rocking what you want to rock, it still might not be accepted by all, but at least it's you being you.

I didn't even know facial hair wasn't for everyoone until a client at my work told me I'm one of the few males she knows that looks good in a beard. I never saw someone with reasonable facial hair and immediately thought, "they don't look good with that beard." Female logic, I guess. I'm middle eastern, so it must be the genes

I gradually went up myself. Went from just having the "mexican stache" when I was 13, to the chin patch at 15, chin strap at 17, threw the mustache in at 21 and now rock the full beard at 25. I keep it trim, usually shave it down with an open 1 clip once a week.

This is the kind of beard I want.

And I don't know how this will sound when you read it in your head, but you look like how you post Anti Hero

Like a crazed person?


Also, my gf hates my Goat.. she loves beards but likes them trimmed. That's how I normally keep it too but I wanted to give this no shave November thing a go. I'll be shaving it all back down to baseline in a few days. Much to the ladies delight.

That's an honor.. It's the shaved head and beard.. I looked far less crazy when I was younger with a full head of hair.. I finally gave into baldness and quit fighting it

Hurry up stemcell research!!

Meticode you're like 30 right? C'mon man, chin straps are for frat boys.

Starting to get chilly so I've been rocking a fairly short beard. Not stubble, but nothing gnarly. Shape up the neck every other day or so, trimmers on a short guard couple times a week. Works well with a fairly square jaw.

If you grow a beard just keep the shit together, don't just let it grow for a month w/o ever touching it. Unless you're still a kid, then who cares.
