I have a beard. But, it's under my penis. And over my penis. And to the sides. I have a weird penis.

Post pics of the facial hair, gentleman!

I wish my husband shaved more. I love the grow back process.

I have a big beard. I get strange looks from people, mostly old women, when I'm in public.

It's about...huh...I'd guess (no, I'm not going to measure it ((MY BEARD))...) my beard is about 7-8 inches from the bottom of my chin.

I like it.

I hate to shave, so I have been growing since late summer. Most teachers don't have big beards, but I do. I have only had one person tell me it was unprofessional, and I told her that I really didn't care.

i teach too. I have to hope my beard looks passable by Dec 9th when we have parent-teacher conferences or else it's back to square one.

LOL

That's awesome

I thankfully work in an industry (marketing/advertising) where appearances in general are rather lax.

On top of that I currently work for a company that is even more lax than the standard in this field, and even more so on top of that, I don't have any in-state clients, so all of my client communication is emails and phone calls.

So my appearance really doesn't matter, so while I normally have a beard, I've been letting it go the last couple months and is nice and bushy now, and I've also started to grow my hair out and see how that goes as I normally just have a buzz cut.

I grew it for the Red Sox. It got really gnarly, and I just trimmed it up. It is there, but much shorter now. And not really thick. It seems much thicker when it get long and gnarly for sure.

My facial hair is also soulless...

I can't grow the connectors for the mustache to the chin for a goatee. I've tried most facial hair (beard, goatee, mustache, etc). But, as previously mentioned, my wife doesn't care for facial hair...despite me having facial hair when we met...

I'm 32 and have had a beard pretty much for the past 5 years. I didn't have one when I first started my job at CPS and someone asked me if I had graduated high school (not what you want to hear when you're taking someone's kids away) so I have gone beard ever since.

Yesterday my daughter turned 13 and for her party we had a theme where you had to dress like you did when you were thirteen, so I shaved off the beard completely. My 4 and 2 year old daughters had never seen me without my beard. My 4 year old cried and said she wasn't going to go near me until the beard came back. My 2 year old would not look at me. So sad. Today they are both fine, but the beard is already on its way back.

How do people NOT grow facial hair? Well, males anyway.... Why are there some that can't grow any?

I shave today, and tomorrow I'm like Santa Claus

I've been rocking mine since I was 17, so almost 9 years now. I refuse to get rid of it. GF loves it so that's a plus. I've tried growing it out more in an attempt to annoy here to no avail. I usually give in to myself after a month and trim it out of pure annoyance that she hasn't said anything.

I just shaved my mustache for the first time in a year. I was growing it out for nationals but ended up not being able to make it. I can grow a mustache out to my ears but I can't grow a full beard in.

Cool story about this topic: my brother in laws work had all the guys shave for breast cancer awareness. Whoever has the most facial hair by a certain day will win a gift card.

That is one of the wonderful things of being a man ... facial hair! A few months ago, I started out with a chinstrap beard. Then, I thought to myself "self: if you just shaved a strip from your chin, you would have a top 5 most epic sideburn setup EVER.

Well, I did it, and I was right. I let those bad boys go for a few months and they were monsters on my face ... mutton chop style. My wife made me keep them all the way to Halloween and bought me an xmen shirt, so I could be wolverine.

Now they are gone, and my wife is complaining that I look too young. Never thought I'd have that problem!
