Question for the men and women of CU:

For the men: Do you wear facial hair? If so, what kind? A solo mustache (and if a solo stache, what kind?), a goatee, a chinstrap, a chin goatee (no mustache), a full beard, a soul patch a trimmed beard, Don Johnson shadow? Or some combination? What do you think of certain types of facial hair, for example mustaches and goatees? Do you have any negative connotations with them?

For the women: Do you like facial hair on a man? If so, ladies, what do you like on a man? Some simple shadow, a solo mustache (whether thin Gable-esque mustache or bushy Tom Selleck mustache), a goatee (connected or unconnected to the mustache), a simple soul patch or prefer your man or me in general to be clean-shaven?

Clean shaven. I hate moustaches and beards are a nuisance.

I rarely shave on my days off. I'll sometimes let a mustache grow during my duty week. I don't really have a set trend, it's just whatever strikes my fancy when I step in front of the mirror.

I recently trimmed my beard back to a short boxed beard. I regret it.

Also, razors are expensive.

I have a goatee/van dyke. I've had this style since '96. Occassionally I let it grow out in to a beard but end up shaving it off after a few months

Well, that was certainly more information about facial hair than I knew existed!

Mr. Snaps is clean shaven and that's what I prefer. Basically, guys should just decide to either have a smooth face or have a real beard (or whatever). There is nothing more annoying than that "shaved last Tuesday" look. Not only is it visually kind of slovenly but it's just no fun at all to kiss a guy with stubble. :(

I second that. Clean shaven.

I had to deal with a lady that had some beardage going on. THAT was interesting, to say the least.

Depends on what day you see me. Monday, I have a goatee. By the weekend, it's a goatee with stubble. I haven't been clean shaven in over a year.

I certainly don't prefer facial hair on a guy, but I don't mind if they go a few days without shaving. Long sideburns can also look good on the right face.

Short Boxed Beard.

I've had a mustache since I was a teenager. I grew a beard just before I turned 30 because of baby face syndrome. A woman in her early 40's wanted to introduce me to her 17 year old daugher. I nearly had a heart attack. When She found out how old I was, she did too.

Now that I'm in my late 40's with my beard and mustache are turning white, I may have to shave it off to take off of few years.:D

Have you considered switching to a straight razor? You get superb control, super close shaves, never replace the blade and one razor can last you a lifetime and then some. :)

I only use straight razors for shaving and love the straight razor so much I started making custom razors.

There are a lot of vintage razors still out there and if you shop around at flea markets and what have you, you can sometimes find some outstanding shaving razors for less than $20.00.

More and more people are going back to the straight blade these days, believe it or not!

My sentiments exactly BC.

Having said that, I have a bushy horseshoe with a soul patch and mutton chops.

I prefer to call the soul patch a Frank Zappa apostrophe and the mutton chops are kinda like Duane Allman.

So you wanted that date instead then. Well, there's bad news on that front I fear. I have talked it over with the missus and she said, "No way, he sounds like a stalker to me." So, I am going to have to retract my date offer to preserve my marriage. Sorry to disappoint you, but with your thick skin I am sure you'll get over it in no time flat.

To add to my own topic, I have mid ear length sideburns and a small, trimmed mustache--essentially the ''Zorro'' look. When I grow out my beard fully or a goatee the hairs on my chin come out the same color as your daughter's hair! So thus with my black hair and mustache it wouldn't look so good lol.

I like my men hairy - in particular those without a hairy chest need not apply.
Few things are more ghey than a freshly waxed man chest.
But head hair must be short.

I love the Sonny Crockett look with that stubbly few days growth, but only men
that have dark hair. Blonde guys don't usually look good with stubble.

This is the ultimate:

Best discussion method I ever heard on the topic is from Bill Engvall - it was something similar to this:
