My husband has a short neatly trimmed beard and I prefer him like that
I must say though that we have a photo of him taken in his college days with a less than well cared for look to it when he looked more like something that changed during full moon and went out howling at the sky and eating raw flesh!!!

I have to agree with it...

Although I also agree with wetrain that it really depends on a man (although taliban type beard is still not on my list).

Ohhh I love facial hair! It makes a man look so rugged. I am also not into the Taliban beard, but give me as well kept beard any day! Except those creepy handlebar mustaches, no thanks

They might not be "sexy", but you gotta love these guys!

I sport a goatee. I've always hated shaving everyday. If I did shave everyday, I would breakout on my face. I trim my face down to short stubble and then let it grow back until it starts itching.

I do think that some guys in certain careers should have clean faces (no stubble). Like lawyers, salesmen, doctors and such. However, society's standards are changing. It is becoming more acceptable for facial hair or stubble. Same is for tattoos and peircings. Neither that I personally care for.

I'm outside/in the barn most of the time, so it's beard for warmth in the winter, otherwise however short I can make the stubble using horse clippers.

I don't think anyone here is talking about society's standards. Heck, my accident lawyer (I dealt with when some drunk idiot totalled my car and sent me to ER) had a beard (rather short though), and I know number of scientists and high tech people with "taliban style" beard. My respect to the person NEVER depends on the beard or cloth or appearance in general, but on qualifications and/or if the person is simply a nice person to deal with. However I don't find such guys sexy. Just a personal taste (and I believe that's what the article is about).

I love love loooove facial hair on men, but it must be maintained. It's scary when it gets out of control lol

I can go either way with a beard - it all depends on the individual. My husband wears a beard in the long stubble or short trim length. He has to as he's got a serious baby face and he doesn't get taken seriously otherwise (usually by me).

My boyfriend has this beard that goes along his jaw line with crisp edges, but when the stubble around it grows out it looks the best;) he can't grow a full just gets...patchy and odd XD

Golden, that's perfect!!!!

My boyfriend has a beard, but its not messy. It always has a clean look to it. Its just pullable with my fingers so its not long. It looks nice when trimmed short. But if he were to shave it all, he'd look like a baby.

Besides, when I have an itch...nothing relieves it like the stubble/beard. Lmao!
