I've had a beard for most of my adult life. Had various versions over the years. Now I keep it high and tight.

#3 Posted by MooseyMcMan (12014 posts) -

Yes. I usually keep it fairly trimmed. Or try to.

#4 Posted by laserbolts (5472 posts) -

If you asked an hour ago then yes but right now I do not.

#5 Posted by Labman (296 posts) -

I've had a goatee (with connecting moustache) since I was in grade 11, but I don't know if I would classify that as a "beard."

/sigh. I didn't get the nickname "Captain Red Beard" for no reason...

Nope. I don't like facial hair. I can grow a beard in pretty fast though. I have to shave every day because my facial hair grows really fast.

#9 Posted by Imsorrymsjackson (866 posts) -

No because I work in the food industry.

#10 Posted by ShadowVirus (841 posts) -

Yes, it's pretty thin, it doesn't grow much bigger unfortunately.

#11 Posted by PerryVandell (2201 posts) -

Don't think so. I get the shitty "peach fuzz" look if I don't shave for a few days and haven't bothered waiting long enough to see if I can fill it out.

#12 Posted by Tim_the_Corsair (3053 posts) -

Moustache, goatee and connecting straps to my sideburns, kept short and neat when i am not being lazy

#13 Posted by Video_Game_King (36566 posts) -

Yea, but it's not like it matters. When I'm not being somebody else entirely, I'm wearing a cloak that completely masks my face. Who's gonna see that shit?

#15 Posted by jonnyboy (2867 posts) -

Big fucking beard, shaved head. I like to confuse people into thinning my head is on upside down.

#16 Posted by nutter (138 posts) -

I go back and forth. Incan grow a good six inches of beard in about as many months. I love having a massive amount of beard. When I let it get long, I tend to keep it semi-groomed along the top and sideburns so it looks more ZZ Top and less boxcar hobo.

That said, I work a very visible office job in a massive corporation, so I do have to keep it reasonable...which hurts me.

Once my color starts to go, I'll let it grow out more. Grey and white beards are full of wisdom. Black beards just look like piracy and vagrancy.

#17 Posted by Ramone (3078 posts) -

Cannot grow one for shit, one of the disadvantages of having light blond hair.

#18 Posted by Scrawnto (2506 posts) -

I'm 23 years old, and I still only get patchy sideburns and some chin scruff. I can't even begin to grow a mustache.

#19 Posted by TopSteer (705 posts) -

Yes. I've been called Grizzly Adams before so I guess that's usually what my beard is like. It's getting to the point now where I usually get impulsive and shave it but I kinda want to see how long it will get.

#20 Posted by mosespippy (4746 posts) -

I've been transitioning the goatee that I've had since high school into a full beard. It's coming in a bit patchy.

#21 Posted by JonathanAshleyMoore (299 posts) -

Yeah, but I keep it pretty trim these days. Used to have a Pendleton Ward beard.

#22 Posted by crusader8463 (14755 posts) -

I wish I could grow one, but I literally can not grow any hair in the mustache area and the rest of the face is patchy or neck beard only. It's a pain in the ass shaving all the time, and I tend to put it off much longer then I really ought to. I wish I could grow a nice stash. I think I would look good with one.

#23 Posted by dungbootle (2501 posts) -

Yes but only for a few days and then I make it go away, and then it comes back and the cycle repeats.

#24 Posted by EquitasInvictus (2067 posts) -

I have to be clean shaven at all times. It's kind of a chore to shave every day, but you do what you gotta do!

#25 Posted by Genkkaku (755 posts) -

I used to always have a beard 'cause it takes me like 3 days to grow something respectable.. but then I let it go for a bit and it got to a point where it just looked bad, kinda like a tree-root system on my face.. so I've been clean shaven since then, but I'll go back eventually because facial hair is awesome

#26 Posted by gamefreak9 (2877 posts) -

I'm already not very popular with the ladies, no point in making it worse.

#27 Posted by 49th (3118 posts) -

Pretty much since I could grow reasonable facial hair I've had facial hair. It grows pretty fast so I can't be arsed to shave everyday especially since I don't need to for a job, I just keep it sort of like stubble.

I did let it grow one summer without any trimming or style and it managed to get long enough to stick in my mouth, I looked fucking terrible though.

#28 Posted by ervonymous (1299 posts) -

I'd love to keep a trimmed beard as red as my hair but 'tis not meant to be.

#29 Posted by kgb0515 (427 posts) -

I wish. I will just never have the follicular fortitude to grow one.

#30 Posted by Demoskinos (16440 posts) -

Love me some beard. I'll trim it a bit but haven't shaved it off in quite a while. Mostly because well...razors are expensive as shit!

#31 Posted by akeripper4 (166 posts) -

forgot one option: if one lives in the northern parts this one let it grow since, this one does not like freezing

#32 Posted by brophdog (103 posts) -

Wow. Lots of giantbombers have beards. Well done dudes.

#33 Posted by Soapy86 (2683 posts) -

B. It's damn near majestic.

I first grew it when I was 17.

#34 Posted by triple07 (1240 posts) -

Yep I mostly keep it pretty clean but sometimes I'll grow it out, usually in the winter.

Basically me currently, but maybe not so big fucking for the beard.

#36 Posted by GreggD (4587 posts) -

Thick beard, kinda shitty looking.

#37 Posted by Profsn1pe (17 posts) -

I kind of do, it comes in well on my chin but everywhere else is kind of patchy. I don't shave it that much since I think I look better with some hair on my face than I do without it.

#38 Posted by yani (422 posts) -

Wish I had the option but at 24 I've realised that I am folliculy handicapped. The best I can do is a half hearted fuzz where my glorious mutton chops should be :(

All hail Bradley Wiggens.

#39 Posted by NegativeCero (3091 posts) -

No, I can't grow anything decent facial hair that doesn't make me look terrible at all.

#40 Posted by pyromagnestir (4386 posts) -

I cannot beard. At least I haven't any time I've tried. Longest I went was about a month without shaving. When I try, there's just a whole lot of real estate between the hairs, and some key spots where no hairs come in at all.

Currently, I'm answer B.

#42 Edited by SirOptimusPrime (2037 posts) -

I change between a van dyke most of the time, a stupid mountain man neckbeard, and clean shaven. What people say about shaving stupid shit before going clean is totally true, I had a handlebar for about ten minutes before I decided that was the worst idea ever. I looked like James Hetfield if he had a weird tan and was about a half a foot shorter.

Right now I'm Grizzly Adams'ing it up, so I'll go with A.

#43 Posted by BraveToaster (12636 posts) -

I used to until about a month ago. Now people think I'm in high school.

My beard is amazing. Except I have blonde hair but my beard is red.

#46 Posted by believer258 (12974 posts) -

I haven't ever let it grow out long enough to see, so the answer is "no, I keep it shaved". Gotta shave like every other day, which isn't too bad I guess. Come to think of it, I guess I'd rock a beard if I could, but it's not really something I lament over.

Besides, I always feel good after a shave.

#47 Edited by Chop (2010 posts) -

Nope. I have brown hair, yet my beard comes in red...I hate it.

#48 Posted by SgtSphynx (1874 posts) -

Usually, though every month or so I shave with a straight razor.

#49 Posted by ConfusedOwl (1038 posts) -

I wish, but I couldn't grow a beard if my life depended on it. I grow enough that I need to shave but it doesn't grow enough to look good.

#50 Posted by MrKlorox (11142 posts) -

A. It's long, scraggly, uneven, and in serious need of a trim.
