I have given this thread a lot of thought and have come to the conclusion that whether or not a man wears a beard is up to him, just like hairstyles are for women.

I prefer a cleanshaven look for most men, and I would be dismayed (although I would love him just as much and respect his decision), if Frank chose to grow a beard.

Similarly, he might be a bit dismayed or taken aback if I should choose to wear my hair in a pink mohawk...

W2R, then try a nice royal blue mohawk - pink clashes with too many other things

Good idea. Then I could go to a piercer and get a matching royal blue nose ring, tongue piercing, and multiple ear piercings with matching royal blue jewelry. After all a woman's jewelry choice is her own business, just as it is a man's business whether or not he decides to wear a beard.

This thread has gone wrong in SO many ways...........LOL

The wife (the 2nd one, the keeper) liked my mustache when I first tried it so it has stayed. When we started riding bikes in 2002 I added the goatee, and she likes that as well. A full beard has never worked out as it always comes in too thin in spots. Most recently (3 years ago?) I got brave and started shaving my head. She really likes that too. So I have a mustache and goatee and yet I shave more than ever. Ugh.

It does make school reunions fun though. My full head of blonde hair is gone, replaced by a face-full of bristles. I think I look much better this way, and women can't resist running their hands over a shaved scalp.

Without proof, that is just a rumor... And, besides, with a whole flock to choose from, you don't think I would pick the ugliest one, would you?

A lot of people say I should shave my head completely instead of having the Captain Stubing bald spot, but I don't think I have the right facial shape to pull it off. I think faces with more chiseled and angular shapes look better shaved.

If I shaved it all with my roundish face, I'd look more like Charlie Brown or -- well, like Ziggy...

Yes, this is my head:

It tickles me how so many of us here will post photos of various body parts but rarely a full face shot (T-Al being a notable exception, if I recall), or else strategically covered to disguise our full image.

Got warrants?

P.S. Ziggy and Wester - you guys look exactly alike. Twins?
