    I had a mustache for far too long. More of a lip brow, really. I cringe every time I see a picture of me with it. Just awful.

    I "shave" maybe once a week with beard trimmer. I shave for real maybe once a month.

    I started shaving at 16 and by 18 was working and started growing a beard but my mustache didn’t fill out until my late 20’s. Yesterday I officially retired, and today I got a #1 haircut then came home and shaved my mustache off. After shaving and working for 42 years I think I’m back to totally clean face mode, but only shaving every other day or two, or three...

    I’ve had a full beard, that I trim every few weeks, for 20+ years. The only time I shaved it off was about a month before my wedding and my wife said...no chance, grow it back. It’s been here since.

    Aside from 70s muttonchops, I had been clean shaven forever. I hate to shave, though. After my divorce and retirement 5 years ago, I was only shaving maybe once a week. By that time, I was looking like a homeless guy. So I thought I'd finally try a beard after decades of never ever trying one. I loved it, and have kept it since.

    I had a mustache from age 18 until age 58, but as I aged, it became greyer and the hair became more coarse. I’ve been clean shaven for 7 years, look younger, and don’t miss having to trim it.

    I have a Chuck Norris upper lip. It's traumatic.

    I’ve had a weak goatee for many years but my chin area is totally grey, so I sort of like like I have a pornstash from the distance. I’m off from work for the last three weeks in August so I’m going to shave it all and see how I look. I’m a bit scared.
    When I try for a beard it comes in scraggly and I look very much like an Al Queda wanted poster.

    That's my Great Great Grandfather from about 1910. I did the big Goatee last year (not that big). Wife liked it. I thought it made me look like an extra in a biker movie.

    I lost the mustache about 20 years ago and never missed it. Recently I tried the shave every 4 days thing. I looked like a bum so I'm back to shaving every morning. Old habits....

    Whatever creams your Twinkie I says. Beardy thing works for some.
    Doesn't work for me. Besides...can't improve on perfection.

    The perception of two or three-day growth has certainly changed over the years. One of the big furniture company commercials -Rooms-to-Go, I think - now has a young guy in a tight suit (no tie of course) and three-day gruff who, twenty years ago, would have registered as having stayed out all night, drunk too much, and in sore need of a s...t, shave and shower before appearing on our delicate TV screens. Now he looks cool, of course.

    This being summer, I'm on a reduced schedule, and I rolled up for my acting class last week with some stubble on me mush. The dapper lady on the desk complimented me on my unshaven look - I thought I was slobbing out! How times change.

    Been rocking a strong beard for about six months now. Helps me blend in with the local Alameda scene. Thinking of coloring it. Right now it kinda looks like Letterman. Going for the Appalachian hillbilly or maybe the Rutherford B. Hayes.

    I grew a beard and kept it for the last 5 years because I gained weight and in my mind it hides the double chin. Right or wrong, it's there to stay until I can take off some weight.

    I have a chin strap. No beard for me because if I let it grow out, it just looks like I have a bunch of pubes glued to my face.
