Girls, do you like men with facial hair?

We men like to talk a good beard, but I was wondering whether that appreciation extended to the fairer sex. So girls, do you like a man with a beard or not?

As a man with a beard and engaged to a woman who threatens to break it off if I shave it off... +1 for women that like them.

*edit* she's read and agrees with the above.

Beards are too much effort to maintain.

I sometimes wonder why guys get so excited about huge beards these days. They cover up the face too much, and I don't think they improve the looks of most people, with few exceptions. I don't mind stubble or a small amount of facial hair on some people if it's maintained properly, but overall, not in favor of them at all.

It usually seems to be younger guys who are so gung ho about growing huge beards, it's as if they just learned they could finally grow hair on their faces or just watched a weeklong 300 marathon.

I think beards are the men's equivalent of large sunglasses for women. Just something that the opposite sex tends to find horrible.

I've heard quite a few girls say that facial hair is a turn-off, but they're wrong.
They may not want to admit it; they may not even be consciously aware that it is happening, but nothing arouses the females like a great old manly beard.

A very short beard - more stubble than beard is very attractive, as long as it looks like you actually can grow a full beard. If it looks like it'd be sparse and stringy, then clean-shaven. But I do find the hint of a beard very sexy.

Depends on the beard and the face. Some people look good with a beard others don't. Though as a personal preference I dislike full beards, they make you look like a lumberjack or a viking and I don't find either attractive.

Ack, nooooo.
Stubble is okay, but full on beards look horrible IMO.
Also I can't kiss a hairy guy... Itchy itchy~
Smooth shaven for me pl0x.

There are some styles that should be punishable by death

1. Male Ponytails- get rid of it. Stop looking like a hitman in a bad 80's movie.
2. Fu man Gross- Any facial hair hanging off your face that is not maintaned. Your not a Rockstar, you have food caught in it.
3. Amish Mistake- Very thick full beard- Trim it Brother Shamus
4. Curly Hipster Doughbag- That curly mustache that hipsters like to rock that makes them look like a boxer from the 40's. You look like the Red Barons retarded half brother that he never calls.

Nope.
If I wanted a guy with a beard I would just scour my face with steel wool. My skin is super sensitive.

It's particularly irritating for me cause my boyfriend grows a beard very very quickly.
He just looks so much nicer shaven.

I sport a chinstrap to give my face some definition. It's like giving my face a border and makes my head appear less tiny.

It's less douchbaggy than it sounds. I think. I hope.

I hope not. Because I cannot grow respectful facial hair. So I shave off my pedo-stache and bum-fluff beard.

No we dont. think beards are stupid and should be done away with. Infact i think all hair save for the ones on head is unnecessary to humans, and even those grow way too fast.

It's funny how accurate women are with guys facial hair and how it works for them. Every girl that I hang around was saying the same thing about what I should do. they wanted me to have light facial hair that was all over my face. It looked good with my bald head. Clean shaven look when your bald makes you look like a walking penis. I was getting more compliments, +1 for women everywhere.

My boyfriend doesn't bother to shave very often so he usually has some scruffy facial hair which I think looks adorable manly. I think full on beards can look cool, but only if the man is middle aged or older. They can look absolutely amazing on a hobo or a university professor. Occasionally I find myself completely awestruck by someone's beard. I see a large, white beard and all I can think for the next few minutes is "Fuck, that was an epic beard".

Amusingly, I've been told I have a very villainish look to me; as I rock a pony tail and a goatee. Laughing at the jealous rage women get in over my superbly naturally thick hair I do nothing to maintain (beyond washing that is); I love it when they run their fingers through it. Did short hair once a long time ago, never going back.

Besides, we're hit men, what are you going to do about it? ;)

Dude here.

I have a Goatee/Chinstrap combo going on.

It's impossible to recreate in character generators. :(

My girlfriend likes it.

Edit: Sorry about the lighting, it's almost 2 am here and our living room light is one of those "white" power saving lights which makes everything look super weird.

And yes, I do trim my jaw line, moustache, neck, cheeks, and chin to individual lengths.

Beards are for pussies, real mean grow pornostaches.

Wait what? I had an easier time facial hair wise when I had a beard than now... shaving sucks :P

Yes.

Not, you know, super beard beards, but I like me a stylish goatee. Particularly of the Evil variety.

Commander Will Riker had some very sexy facial hair. **sigh**

Also, a shaved face with some two-day scruff can be sexy if properly managed.

Full beards, no - ick. Too much of a good thing. A little facial hair is slightly scratchy when the lips are kissed - I don't want a Brillo pad attacking my chin.

For the most part, facial hair is gross. *bleh*

For the most part I don't agree with you (I've rocked the handlebar myself) but that last one there made me spit my coffee, so kudos sir.

'Cus beards are cool

I stand firmly behind that men in their heart of hearts all want a big viking beard. I unfortunately wasn't blessed with good hair for a beard of that nature... it looks like pubic hair on my face so I'm forced to shave and suffer the humiliation of looking like a over grown baby. I think my dad took it all for himself personally, he's got a proud manly beard.

Every woman I've talked to about this says they like clean shaven but they're simply wrong. If a gang of thugs approached you in a alley what would you want your man to look like? Clean shaven with only a hopefully manly jawline or have a beard so mighty that it looks like it might be packing heat of its very own.
I REST MY CASE!

EDIT: Example above ^

I really hate shaving, once the fluff on my face is gone, I will grow a bad-ass beard.
Girls who hate the mane, aren't worth my time. Men with facial hair are automatically 40% cooler than men without, no exceptions. Also long hair, lumberjack beard and sunglasses are bad-ass.

I rather like a good beard. Not a neck beard though, those are just a sign of laziness. I like a manly man.

I have noticed, through a touch of profile stalking, that the ladies saying 'ick' are still quite young. I wonder if it will be more appealing to them in a few years, just a thought.

I do like some facial hair, but not a full on viking beard which make is blasphemy to me since I love vikings.

Goatees can be pretty damn awesome, depending on how it's managed of course.

I am going to have to +1 this. I have a long time girlfriend who threatens to kill me if I cut my hair or shave my Mephistopheles from my face. The answer to the OP is always going to depend on both the person sporting the facial hair, and the girl admiring said sporter of hair.

edit: Also possessing of the naturally thick hair that grows endlessly.

I like some 5 o'clock shadow, but I can't stand thick nasty beards. It's horrid, because my boyfriend really wants a Gandalf beard. Luckily, I don't think he quite has the ability.

I could probably stand a goatee, but in general, I would rather if a man was just shaven.

That really depends on the man and the beard. Some beards look awesome, some just look silly. Depends, as in all matters of the face, on bone structure. But an attractive man in an attractive and well-kept beard is fine by me.

i hear its not beards in general that women like/dislike its if you can pull it off

i can get away with a beard. my housemate...can't he just looks scruffy with one

any truth to this or have i been lied to.

This.
It really does depend on the face and beard. I would have to say if it looks right and clean. Then it's cool, I don't want to see that you had eggs for breakfast.

Could never go wrong with goatees, especially Van Dykes.

Now that is what I'd call a nice beard.

Now, 'Chin Curtains' are boring and just look as though the fella is incapable of growing a proper beard. Half-assed goatees are in the same boat (for example, 'Soul Patches'). They just look... eh, I just get the impression, besides being 'beardly challenged', that they're scared of growing a full blown beard. Beards should be embraced!

Oh, I also found this during my search:

And certainly this.

I think I put far too much thought into this post...

Anyone who disproves of beards by thinking they are uncool, unstylish, and/or unmanly, I point you to the picture below and dare you to state that again.

Seriously, though, just go with what you can naturally pull off while keeping it groomed and maintained if you really want to go with that kind of look. Different women and men have different tastes in looks, so you'll never get a definite "right" answer.

Yeah, I'll go with that... though I'll add that it also depends on how the facial hair grows out. Chinese people... or rather east Asians in general, just cannot do beards, like, at all. When we grow beards, it just goes downwards and unless you're older than sixty, it just looks sooooooooooo wrong. I can do five-o'clock shadow (which idiotically takes a couple days to grow) but that's about it. As for on other guys... nah... just... nah. (Except 'lawful evil' goatees, of course!)

Just a tad! =P Do you have the perfect layout of your ideal man's facial hair?! XD
