Beards are great.  They turn into icicles in winter; they accommodate a slightly lazier shaving schedule; they don't cut your lady's face when you're having a make out session. [caption id="attachment_2163" align="aligncenter" width="450" caption="downy soft beard"][/caption]

BUT.  Clean shaven is kind of great too.  Pilots are clean shaven; we haven't had a president with a beard since Benjamin Harrison (and who remembers that guy???)*, and Justin Bieber is clean shaven.** [caption id="attachment_2161" align="aligncenter" width="338" caption="OMG, is that justin bieber?"][/caption] Such a hard decision.  I will leave it to democracy to choose.*** [caption id="attachment_2165" align="aligncenter" width="338" caption="contemplative and smooth"][/caption] [caption id="attachment_2164" align="aligncenter" width="338" caption="beard shock"][/caption] [caption id="attachment_2162" align="aligncenter" width="338" caption="in between and SERIOUS for realz"][/caption] What do you say? Beard or no beard? * - Mustaches excluded and if I'm wrong, blame Wikipedia, the people's encyclopedia.  So basically, it's your fault. ** - clean waxed?  clean plucked?  just clean? *** - "democracy" may have been more accurate.  think florida circa 2000.

I think I’m going to go with slight scruff, no beard, OR … Mustache?? Wait, I know that was 3 options, but give me a break! You look so great so many ways!

BEARD! Hair is great! Not crazy zz top beard :) but a tame scruffy balance of I care, I don’t care, I care, I don’t care. It’s mysterious, and hugely confident. Plus you won’t have razor burn.

I’m a personal fan of what I just dubbed the Less Than Three Stubble. Trim it as tight as those clippers will go every three days. Sandpaper face be damned.

Absoulte fan of the moustache! (thin, 1930s style…)! the beard is not nice! (I always imagine there is life in it, big spacious nest).

so that’s basically two for clean, one of which is also against beard mites. :)
