I've cut out 'beard' growing for now, late last year I finally accepted I just looked like a redneck/nerd/spacker. The old folks liked it, nobody said anything bad about it but I suspect they were being too polite as usual.

It's just beards have that kind of ruggedness about them, plus for some people they feel it compliments/accentuates or compensates for certain facial features. My dad's got a stache and I'd massively freak out if he ever got rid of it. In fact, that's one of my biggest fears :(

My beard hair is getting less fuzzy and more just normal visible beard hair. Still blond though, which is fine by me.

I can grow prepubscent facial hair.

I basically don't notice for ages because it's barely visible on the quick look I do in the mirror in the morning, and then my mate goes "JOE! YOU HAVE A HAIR" and preceed to try and pull it out :lol:

I think all the men should post pictures of their beards/beard attempts.

The beard I am currently rocking, coupled with my new flannel shirt, helps accentuate the rock 'n' roll lumberjack look I'm going for. Will probably return to being stubbly in about a week or so, my flatmate is trying to convince me not to shave. I think he's vicariously living through my beard.

Clearly I'm a perve but I wish he'd stop wearing these bloody trousers...the zip is too shiny!

I'll head back this way with something relevant in a minute, I promise :p

I would but every picture of mine doesn't do it justice, because of the blondy-gingerness of it basically that tends to go translucent under camera flashes. If I ever get a decent pic I will post it though. To give you a rough idea I kind've have a Varg Vikernes thing going on right now;

Lol piiiic.

On a side note, I immediately got "I'm a lumberjack and it's okay...." in my head when I read this post.
