I have had a beard since the early 60's, It only gets trimmed when my wife catches me and ties me to a chair (about once a year)I find that it insulates me against cold in winter and heat in summer.We once had sheep and after lambing we sheared the ewes, the lambs were running about for about two days searching for their mothers.

Had mine for most of the last thirty years. Hot in summer but nice in winter. Does not, by the way, totally eliminate shaving, as the edges are otherwise very scruffy looking. It comes in handy with historical re-enacting (US Civil War period). As a bonus, also hides the fact that my chin has multiplied since I last saw it.

Well, to update my original post here from months ago... Mister did trim the goatee into a nice Vandyke but shaved it all off to be more 18th century fashionable, as we were doing some 18th century events. Makes him look a lot younger but I liked the goatee. He may grow it back when it gets colder.

He's working on that Picard Pompadour, too. :-)

During the early Eighties I had a full beard for about a year. Then one Saturday morning my wife made pancakes. The third time I drizzled syrup into the thing, I decided, "Okay, That's it!" and I shaved it off. One year later, my supervisor at work said, "Hey, Don, I just noticed! When did you shave off your beard?" Very alert was my supervisor.

My general hair configuration is clean-shaven, topped with something more or less similar to the Captain Jean-Luc Picard pompadour.

When I was younger I typically had longer hair and/or a beard. Now I have short hair and no beard. I can blame the short hair on my wife who seems to prefer it that way. I shaved the beard when all the gray started coming in. I find shorter hair is easier to take care of. although my appearance has changed, my values have not. i have been cornered more than once at a party by someone, based on my appearance, tried to inflame a political discussion with me and was surprised to find I was probably more left-thinking than they were.

I'm another one of those women who love a mustache and beard on a man. Kisses are lots more fun when they tickle, too! Gimme a man with facial hair, chest hair, down-there hair, and if he's bald I don't care! (I think bald is sexy too)

Stubble, on the other hand, is a no-no: causes rashes for the lady when brushed against her cheek – eek!. Stubble can be dangerous, also; I once had my cornea scratched by chin stubble (true story!).

I once had a boyfriend with a simply lovely set of facial hair *sigh* Then he went to work at a nuclear reactor, and had to shave so his face-mask would seal properly... then I found out he had no chin to speak of! :^( THEN the Three-Mile Island incident happened, and he claimed he was working at the OTHER reactor (#!) at the time, but my theory is that it was his revenge for having been made to expose his chin to the world.

I don't have a beard, but my violin has sprouted grey hair around the chin rest, which gives the impression of being bearded. Anyone else got a hairy instrument? What about a cello with pubes?

Well, cellos, now, Vlad, mature veeeeery slowly. So if yours has started puberty it is probably several hundred years old. In fact it may be the first cello in history to have survived long enough to reach adolescence. They go through a period of crankiness and rebelliousness, I understand. Continued application of love and patience and endless tuning will have its rewards, and your cello will mature into a resbectable, balanced bass.

The chin hairs on your violin, however, are a different story. This is an indication that your violin has been seeing someone else behind your back. I suggest counseling.

I don't sing folk, I croak it, but many years ago as a comuter up to the City of London from Whitstable, the pain of the Wind cutting off the North Sea in December on raw cheeks prompted me to grow one. Its been off once in the last 30 years. A sponsored, public, shave for the Royal Nation lifeboat Instutute. It hurt but raised over 400 pounds.

now a days - more hair on my chin than my top.

I do not have a beard, which I believe, being a woman is quite normal. Being dark haired though I am afflicted with the displeasure of having to regularly wax my upper lip, to avoid looking like a male Folkie! My bigger half, K has a beard, moustache AND hairy chest, infact, I have never seen his face naked! I LOVE FACIAL HAIR (on a man!)
Oh, and just for the record, I do not have a hairy chest either!

Had the moustache for a LONG time...since spring 1970 when the (US) Army changed its rules about facial hair and our battalion executive officer called all of the junior officers in and told us he didn't want to see any of us with one. The beard comes and goes, but its been on for about 2 years now. Herself says it makes me look like Sean Connery...maybe from the neck up....

I like a short, trimmed beard; can't stand long unruly ones a la ZZ Topp.

I am also not wild about weird hair formations except in small doses; seemed like every guy and his brother had to have a goatee in the late 90s...and now college boys doing all this weird experimenting with shaved heads and full beards, mutton chops, Abe Lincoln mustacheless beards, etc,

Also having grown up in an Italian family I don;t find the mustache only look all that attractive.

But a short beard in the Roman style, yes indeed, that often is very flattering on men...not to mention whiskers feel sexy.

Why cultivate on your chops what grows wild and free around your nadgers? :^)
Had a moustache once, but it kept filling up with strange matter, had an aversion to being waxed and eventually went up in flames when I was fire-eating (creating a blister the size of a saveloy in my left nostril). Since then I too have been clean-shaven.
I'm tempted by a beard now that age is catching up and the distinguished grey look appeals, but there are too many bald patches on my face and neck so I look like a scraggy tomcat after a week of not shaving.

Odd man out,(no change there then!) clean-shaven, the only time I grew a beard in my teens, when I had chickenpox and couldn't shave, it was such a strange mix of colours I was glad to get rid of it. For years I had muttonchop sideburns/sideboards like Noddy Holder but they're much shorter (and whiter!) now. There is a pink spot growing on the top of my head though, I'll soon look like Brother Cadfael!

Joined the Navy at age 18, had to shave twice a day to make it out of boot camp. As soon as I could I grew the moustache back. As soon as I got out of Uncle Sam's yacht club I grew the beard(s). Full, fuller, ZZtop full, mutton chops, fu manchu, goatee and the gay nineties look.
Now a big thick goatee, that is far more salt than pepper. I could probably take years off if I did'nt hate shaving so much.
Beard and long (middle of the back) ponytail...
I would claim to be an old hippie, but I'm not quite old enough to have been a real hippie...

I grew my beard when I was 19, as soon as it would grow properly. It was a terribly bohemian thing to do in those days - people would say how brave I was - BRAVE???

Many years later, I worked for an American company in London and was asked to shave it off as it didn't fit the clean-cut American boy image. I was told that I could keep it if I wanted to, but whenever client contact was required, they would send someone else. As at the time my client contacts were in various fun parts of the world, it seemed an appropriate time to shave it off - sold my soul!

When my wife first saw me sans beard, she said "Ugh, it's awful". You have to think a little about the way she phrased that. But only a little. I later left the company (though not the wife) and grew it again.

Then last year I was at a formal function in Bali, for which they had tailored me Balinese evening dress. This consists of a jacket, two skirts and a headband. I was down to "designer stubble" by then but simply couldn't relate wearing both a skirt and a beard so off it came. No, the beard.

I now wet-shave every day and find it quite stimulating, due to the various modern unctions available. How long it will last I don't know.

Cheers, Terry

Does anyone have a rough male/female breakdown of the number of people who usually contribute to the Mudcat? (I don't mean lurkers) Cause roughly 80 odd males - oops again I should have said people :-) who use the 'cat' have beards - it must be a high proportion of regulars. I bet many more bearded 'catters' have read the thread and not dipped in. I wonder what this says about the sociological makeup of male 'Catters' or would it be 'Folkies' in general. Have beard will like music etc etc.

I must confess I've shaved three times in 30 years - each time was for a job interview - got the jobs then grew the beard again. Have this one 25 years. My wife says I'm better looking hidden behind the beard.

I've had my beard without a break since 1967, which is tied for the earliest date I've seen on this thread. My wife has never seen my face clean-shaven (and, happily, has no desire to). I was about 90 pounds lighter in those days, too, so I don't really know what my face looks like now, either.

People at the time assumed it was a lifestyle statement, but it wasn't -- I just hate shaving, and grew a beard as soon as my (then) conservative profession would let me get away with it. (I'm no longer a teacher, nor are teachers as conservative as they used to be...)
