Half a beard….?
Once people get used to the fact that you have hair on your face it doesn’t look lazy, it’s just the way you look.
But if they are used to you being clean shaven, the first time they see you they will presume you spent your week off drinking cheap sherry at the coach station.Posted 4 years agobikebouyMember
A No4 should keep that looking good Sir. Don’t let it go any further than that or you will indeed look like a Hobo. You may need to go a bit longer (in time) just to let the baldy bits to catch up with the grown bits, but once it’s done, about another week or so, all you need to do twice a week is run a No4 over it.
Perfectly acceptable, perfectly.
Nice suit? Suits you Sir. 😆
FWIW I have a No4 goatee thingy, took ages to get all the hair to grow in a decent length but once done I like it, others like it too and I’ve been admired by some pretty girlies, just gives me a more distinguished look, so I consider it a success.Posted 4 years ago
I used to have a mate, a bit of an eccentric:
Dressed as Tintin for a start, the full outfit.
Had a very impressive beard and ‘tache on the right side of his face, but completely clean shaven on the left.
Did that for years. Even stood as the local Green candidate whilst half shaven. Didn’t loose his deposit.Posted 4 years ago
As a serious answer, I find that trimmed week/fortnight beards look a bit too “**** designer stubble” if I’m honest. Trimmers are only to keep more luxuriant growth in check. Definitely knock a bit off the neck but au naturel is the way to go I think. If it looks patchy and trampy, then it’s best removed altogether.Posted 4 years agochiefgrooveguruMember
I’m not a beardy person but when I had my recent epic crash I was too bashed up to think about shaving, then decided to buy a FS and turn the HT into a singlespeed, and now I have a beard… My wife tells me it isn’t permanent so over the next few days it shall be turning into a Lemmy (is there an official word for that?) and then a smaller moustache/sideys combo before my usual sleek appearance returns… 😉Posted 4 years ago

It’s all gone a bit inception….

Currently returned to the short beard/ designer stubble look again. This time it’s flecked with grey and has a total hair content greater than the top of my head. 😡 As a hairy bear my issue is what to do with my neck. Tendency to allow nature to take its course and allow chest and chin to meet defiantly has a certain hobo edge. But brutal hacking down to babies bum with hard lines between them looks a bit creepy. I’ve settled on shaved Adam’s apple region blended top and bottom. Then a little shave of the cheekbones so I’ve got a chance of seeing where I’m going!Posted 4 years agosamuriMember
Clooney’s look there has cost hundreds of dollars. And it looks rubbish.
I have a huge love-hate relationship with facial hair. On one hand I feel it’s rather a dodgy looking approach. It’s either lazy or hiding something. On the other hand it often looks really cool. I didn’t shave for two weeks last christmas and then went into work. Lots of looks but no comments which made me think people were talking about it behind my back. I thought it looked pretty good but for sure it added about 70 years to me.
Then I shaved off the beard and left the moustache. That was the wrongest look ever and now my facebook account has been deleted, hopefully that picture has also left the realms of this earth.
I quite like (on me), the two day unshaven look although I never go into work unshaven after the weekend.Posted 4 years ago
It worries me when people take a thread like this so seriously as to assume the OP is really really narcissistic about the subject, and there may be no hint of humour about it at all.
Join the fun rusty, it’ll take years off you. Unless you have a beard that is, in which case it won’t. Are you stressed, would you like a massage?

Number 3 on the Remington beard trimmer and shaved neck has been my routine for three years. And it’s red. Skin has never been better too. If on holiday it may grow to a 5before trimming. Just keep the neck tidy so it looks like you mean it 😉
Edit my mother said I looked 10 years younger with it.Posted 4 years ago
