Going For A New Look, Anyone Else Have A Beard?

41 posts in this topic

OK I start a new Job in Germany on September 1st. So I decided to go with a new look, I decided to go with a full beard. So far most of my life I have been clean shaven, but I did have a moustache in my early 30's and a trimmed beard for a while in my 30's too and a goatee for the last 6 months. I've let it grow the last week and it is coming in quite full.

Anyone else have a full beard, or had one in the past, any pointers you can give or advice? Let me know.

This goatee I have is getting on my nerves now. It takes longer to shave in the morning to keep it shaped correctly. Once it gets to a certain length, it becomes more sensitive, and it can get itchy. When I eat, I am constantly afraid I'll get food in it somewhere. I'm shaving it off, I think. I've gotten a lot of compliments on it though.

Mine looks exactly like this:

No surprise there since 1) I idolize the guy and 2) I'm pretty much an enlightened redneck. (And very proud of it)

I get lots of compliments on it, guess I pull it off well. Someday I'll have to shave though, when I land a REAL job. LOL.

If you decide to go this long you need shampoo to wash it and some kind of wax. I use wax to tame down the sides so it looks full and healthy instead of too white trash.

It also helps to use a hair dryer to dry it. (Seriously, it holds water like a mofo)

That is all.

LOL.

Oh, and beware of food dropping in it too (as ocn said) That can be both embarassing and disgusting.

I've tried several times over the years to grow a goatee...no luck..I can never get it very full on my upper lip or lower lip..you can still count the hairs after a couple months. I can do the Amish style beard (all on my neck) but that doesn't look so good.

So in recent years, I've been shaving everything except for my eyebrows.... kind of the Michael Chiklis (The Shield) look..

Never have grown facial hair, though with the shadow problem, it would come in quite rapidly.

I don't think it fits well with my clean-scrubbed coat and tie thing...my opinion.

Oh, well my head and face.. I prefer the shaved head look rather than the graying horseshoe haircut...

I couldn't even if I wanted to. I can get by with only shaving two or three times a week.

I pretty much have to have a beard. I can shave clean at 6 AM and have a full 5 O clock shadow by 9:00 AM, and I'm not kidding about this.

The guys at work used to call me Rabbi Yoder because they weren't sure if I was Jewish or Amish. Actually, I've had people think that I was cuban as well.

But I don't think a beard fits very well in the corporate world. I've thought if I could ever get an electric razor that worked well I could shave 4-5 times a day and go for the clean shaven look...

But that's about what it would take for me. Actually I kind of think most men look sort of silly without facial hair.

Being Italian, I can grow any facial hairstyle I want in two weeks. After being clean shaven for a couple of years, I'm now going for a shorter, tamer version of the Goatfield that FOG posted. The last time I let anything grow on my face, it was a soul patch that I kept for a little over a year. Having hair above the lips does get annoying after a while.

...not really sure about this, but given enough time I think he'll start acting a little more grown up.

Word of caution: your neck is going to itch like hell. You might want to consider just shaving everything under your chin and jaws and on your neck for more comfort.

I have a soul patch/goatee but if I let it get messy, it gets itchy. I just got my haircut two days ago and was thinking of shaving the soul patch/goatee off.

I usually grow one for the winter, but I think I'll skip it this year.

I hate shaving, but a beard is a hassle too.

I'd go for that "hair growth inhibitor" stuff if it was for real.

Besides, a beard makes me look ten years older.

Do I need to start specifying when I'm being serious and when I deliver a laugh line?
