I've got a scruffy looking stash and chin beard that comes in if I let it. I stay clean shaven.
Of course I'm generalizing from a single example here, but everyone does that. At least I do.

Wow - I thought I was among the few that couldn't grow a beard for his life... We should start a club.

I've had a full beard since i was 17 or 18 :P. I also shave my head. Never buy razors cause i just use a trimmer on it. My hairs light enough that you don't notice the stubble for a few days. Besides, a freshly razored head is uncomfortable in a helmet, much better with a couple days worth of growth in there. When I lived in Maine, my beard was long enough to rival guys 10 years my senior that had lived there their whole life. It was a bit much.

Me in furball mode. I've given up trying to figure out what the hell is wrong with my chin that it won't grow hair right.


I've looked like that since about 15 or so.

:shock: Took my buddy joe out once, i ordered a beer.....waitress then asked.....what will your son have?

Joe is older than I am.

Know what you mean. I actually found a barber thats real close that will Really shave my head.


I always meant to get a straight and do the slick head thing, just because i hate having hair but i'm also too lazy to fight with clippers....

I've only recently shaved off thee dodgy neck beard so I don't end up with the two tone tan.

Last year a close friend who hadn't seen me in a while stated I had a carpet stapled to my chin.

I think he was just getting me as until a few years ago I was shaving once a week to stay fairly smart.

Like ceemes, I only had a moustache while in the military. Started growing a beard the day I got out and have always had one ever since. I think it's a law or something for ex-soldiers, because all my old Army buddies have grown beards, too.

Way back when I've worn a droopy 1970s tash, a thin beard (which had to be thin because I have an annoying bald spot under my chin) and a full bushy sea captain's beard (Cap'n Haddock style). Now that my face fuzz is turning from black to pepper pot silver it all looks too elderly, and I've decided that despite the hassle, I like me best when I'm facially bare.

I've also always associated beards with cruisers and choppers not sportsbikes - just to be totally superficial about this.

sigh Mine grows so fast I gave up on keeping it trimmed etc etc. I will shave and less than an hour have a 5 0 clock shadow. So I shave about once a week ish cause its to much of a burden otherwise.
