It just means you like facial hair in your food.

Or food in your facial hair.

I donít shave with a razor, but I also wouldnít say Iím bearded. Every two weeks or so Iíll take out the electric clippers and trim all the hair on my head to a very short stubble. Itís for the sake of convenience, for comfort, and also vanity - because Iím balding, I think I look better that way.

In 2010 I broke my elbow and couldn't shave. I was 51. Grew a beard for the first time since my twenties (when I had one just to see if it came out... and it did!). I shaved it promptly after getting my arm out of the cast. Then, in 2012 I broke my wrist and couldn't shave again, so here came another beard. This time I left it stay for a long time (until about 2016), when I got bored of the bearded look.

Then, this summer, on a whim, I simply stopped shaving for a couple of weeks before going to Spain and now I'm bearded again. I kinda like it. All I do every morning is shave the corners to keep my beard in shape, and every week I trim it.

Correlation with creativity? Maybe in the past, not now...

I started growing a beard on my 50th birthday a few months ago. The salt & pepper beard looks very age-appropriate (no more pretending that I am young!) and most people seem to like it.

"Has anyone else noticed that as you get older the hair on your head stops growing while you begin to grow hair in places you never had it before?"

Yes, it's pretty hard not to notice. Now I have hair in places where I didn't even used to have places.

Bearded up in 1973, have never seen myself since (plus, my great-great-grandfather, Alfred set the example). Saved thousands in shaving equipment. Length has altered through the years, but the color has definitely kept pace with my age. Here I am last week taking phone donations at the best station in the known universe, KEXP (.org) in Seattle. This association (along with photography!), more than anything else, keeps me feeling young.

And then you comb your ear hair up and over, and your bald spot is covered.

When I was young I figured out that I never wanted to have any job that required I shaved or wore a tie. One of my smartest moments.

When I was younger I went with goatees for the most part, you know, 'cause I was cool. These days though I am too lazy for goatees, so I just let it grow and trim it every couple weeks. I am not cool any more either so goatees seem kind of stupid.

I use to cut it all off every few years just to remember what I look like without it. Then I'd immediately regret it so I gave up on doing that. I haven't seen my face for a good 8 years I am guessing. Nobody misses it....

A friend used to answer this question by saying he grew his beard to conceal his horrible facial scars. He didn't have any - just liked to shock. I don't either, but I've had a beard since I got out of the RCAF many decades ago. I hope it makes my chin look better.

Yeah, had a beard since the day I left school, now I'm 59.
Only shaved my beard off once when I was on holiday in France, was horrified to find my father looking back at me from the mirror, grew it back and by the time I got back to work no-one was any the wiser. Never shaved again.

I hate shaving with a passion and work in the bush, so a little scruffiness is a professional expectation. Bearded for a decade or so

John,

This reminds me of when we were shooting in the South Bronx with Andre, and a local saw us and asked me, "Where is the crime scene." LOL.

We did not really fit in. Must of looked like the "Mod Squad" carrying our cameras.

What about all those UBER drivers beeping at us like we needed to escape from the Bronx pronto.

Proper thing too - and may I say that your sartorial style and grooming is reflected in your posts here Sir.

C,

I frequently get asked if I'm a "Pro" photographer or an artist, likely because I stand out in a crowd, or because the way I handle myself.

My gal is a celeb fashion blogger, and it really annoys her when I get asked if I'm a "Pro" or artist and I say, "I'm only a guy with a pony tail with a day-job."

I really downplay trying to be famous, although I would say I'm widely known. Fame like my gal has is a pain, and the constant public view and lack of privacy I would not wish on anyone. I hate all the intrusions, interuptions, and all the judgements.

If anything I want to be known for is my images and my printing. I would rather remain invisible otherwise.

Cal

I've never been able to figure out what beard oil is supposed to be for. Do men's beards generate a lot of friction?

Yes. Lots. Are you not aware of the purpose of shaving cream? It's a lubricant.

So is beard oil also for the purpose of shaving off one's beard? I'm so confused.

B,

Beard oil is like a conditioner after you wash your hair. It softens and moisturizes facial hair. Can also add body and fullness.

As a bicycle racer I use to shave my legs. My beauty secrete is after washing my legs, and while still wet, using hair conditioner as my lubricant for shaving my legs.

BTW it seems to me that it is long beards that benefit from Beard Oil. My arrogant chin beard and stash are trimmed too short to benefit from using Beard Oil.

Back on topic: Shaved legs on men are kinda sexy. LOL. Anyways it seems many women respond well to muscular clean shaven legs. Kinda annoyed my sister though.

beard oil is to help your beard from developing beardfuff...(aka, dandruff)

beard balm does the same but adds some styling gel/thickness to a beard for more control.

In high school and college I fancied that I would become an actor. At age 19 I was in a college production of Macbeth, and the director told all the guys in the show to stop shaving and let our faces get as hairy as they might. That was 27 years ago. I have shaved my face three or four times since then, and each time I do, my mother or my girlfriend or now my wife has said something along the lines of "Oh right. Yeah, you look better with a beard."

Maybe one day I will shave my face again, just to freak out my kids.

Drew,

People forget that cutting your hair, letting it grow, and how drastically how one can change their identity by say just shaving.

Thanks for the laugh.

What a delightful roll call!

Scrolling through, though, I feel a bit like I'm reading a transcript from porch talk at the 1891 Civil War Photographer Society Reunion.

What about a 21st C. roll call on...piercings? tats? Or, to stick with the Samson/Delilah historical flavor, styles of circumcision!

Here I am with Linn last week at the Met. Though my chin patch is obscured by semi-proper RF technique (one eye closed, both should be open), you can see my lip-line mustache courtesy of a 1924 Gillette double-bladed razor.



Finally, a bit of testimony re shaving: Skip the soap and canned foam Use a schmear of good skin cream--I prefer lemon--and once you're done shaving, rub it in. Your throat and cheeks will thank you.

While in the shower I take about 4 drops, Pat it on, new cheap razor. Every morning and sometimes evening. Just like grandpa sans foam and double sided blades. Easy if you keep up with it. Boss and customers are very pleased I think. I learned to shave (quickly and dry) in boot camp.
