No beard, moustache, goatee or sideburns for me. I shave every day and even just one day’s growth annoys me. Even during the 60s and 70s I was clean shaven and my hair was relatively short. I did try a moustache once back in the mist of time, but it didn’t last more than a few days. During the pandemic I’ve shaved every day and bought a Wahl clipper set, which YouTube and I have trained SWMBO on to give me a #3 buzz cut…bloody lovely and I’ll keep it going forward.
Brilliant, you've found a combo that works for you and are sticking with it. I'm still in the try different styles phase but running out of options :rolleyes:

Me too. Never understood why anyone would want hair hanging off their face. Not for me at all. The longest I’ve ever gone without shaving must be 4-5 days absolute tops, and that was out of laziness, but my face felt horrendous, really itchy and uncomfortable. Even by a 3rd day I start to feel like that. It seems these days that facial hair is more popular than ever. Personally I just don’t get it.

If I did try to grow a beard, I bet people I know would call me a hipster and think I was trying to be cool. So many people sport beards now that it almost seems like you stand out from the crowd by NOT having one, in this case I am happy to be different! Frankly I think I would look ridiculous with a beard and it would take a really long time to grow one anyway, so happy to shave every other day at the longest

Body hair grows about 10mm a month so yes growing a beard may take time but good news is if looked after it stops itching when longer.
I'm with you on this. Don't ever remember my beard being itchy enough that I've thought I have to get this shaved off. Everyone is different I suppose.

Over the years, I've had a full beard, an Imperial, Piccadilly Weepers, a Zapata, long sideburns, some other variations, and a clean shave. For about the last 20 I've worn a handlebar moustache, which is now a fetching tri-tone of blond, ginger and white-sort of "tabby cat". I shave daily (not the moustache, of course), and nowadays I wouldn't grow a beard, as I find it itchy, it's white, and I am not yet so old and decrepit that I cannot summon up the effort to keep clean and shaven.

When it comes to the roofing thatch, I'm channelling my inner Wild Bill Hickock; forced to by lockdown, of course.

I am 50 years old. I had a goatee for a year in 2000. If I had a goatee now It would be pure white. Do I really want to look old? It may work for George and Ben. I don't get sideburns, I only have a grown a moustache twice for Movember. If I had a handle moustache I will probably look more Village People than WW2 fighter pilot...
