Moustache for the last 42 years and a full beard for 40. With that and the wrinkles setting in I'm not sure what I look like any more.

Cheers!

So WHERE are the pics of all you handsome devils? Come on, guys, I have decloaked several times.

In the spirit of the dropped gauntlet, I'll go first...my legs are shaved in this pic.

UPDATE...well, it's been 6 HOURS and not a handsome devil to be seen except that AARP zombie. So the legs go back undercover. Bronx cheer.

i've had a beard since my early 20's and seldom shaved it off. when trimming it before the trimmers of today i'd use a mirror, comb and scissors. if i made a fatal mistake and it was really bad i'd shave it off and regrow it immediately. my wives never complained about it. over the past few years i tried no beard for a few months and that was ok or a goatee which looked ok but i went back to a full beard and during those times my face was cold. i had it really long once and fairly long a few times but over the past 15 years i've kept it pretty short maybe 1/4". now it's 90% grey and white tho my hair is not all that gray nor am i bald at all. last august i stopped trimming it until april and i looked like santa claus! too lazy to shave and it always has made me look older which was fine when i was 23.

I do not wear facial hair. Sorry I will not put my picture on this site, I do not want to be recognized by people who know me in real life.

Facial hair is too much work. I also use a zero on my head. I save on shampoo, keep cool, and don't look like hell when I wake up. It's especially useful when I backpack-my favorite activity.

Eeek, HFWR--that is a CLOSEUP!
Here's DH's beard he grew for climbing Mt. Whitney earlier this year.

I asked my husband to please grow a beard when we started traveling a bunch (after retiring) and he decided shaving was optional during trips. I was tired of the homeless person look.

The new beard look turned out to suit him well. And he fits right in with the wildlife photographer/naturalist crowd. They have a certain "look" you know.

It did age him though - as his beard had quite a bit of white and gray, and now is more white than gray. Freshly shaved he looks very young.

Do you want pictures of my nostrils or my ears?

I'm not sure this site would accept anything that ugly, but that's where the hairs are.
