    Clean shaven baby. Keeps for smooth skin and a nice clean face. If ever a spot pops up, it's like spotting a girrafe in the middle of a million zebras. It's noticeable. *Runs to clean and clear*

    It depends which day of the week it is. I only shave once a week normally on the weekend. So Monday no beard then Friday slight beard growth.

    Can I ask and am not meaning to sound horrible or anything. What is it with designer stubble? I was married to a man with a full set and he only shaved it all off after we split up. The stubble look just looks well 'scruffy' and not really a good look. Just wondered and guys no offence intended.

    Different (for the sake of respect) 'females' find different things attractive. Some prefer their partner or person their dating to have stubble / facial hair, others prefer clean shaven. I've been told to grow facial hair so that i look 'older' as i'm often mistaken for a child. Maybe that could play into it? It helps to point out who is 'older' and who is 'younger'?

    I often used to sport facial hair until it started coming out grey and making me look old.

    I had two job interviews for a NM role pre-beard and did not get either of them. I then grew a beard and got the very next job I applied for. Now in between that time I did get a lot more experience and a few extra qualifications, but I like to think it was actually the beard that got me the job!

    It is requested that we are cleanly shaven during term time. During the holidays I leave my stubble for as long as I can cope with it, I need to find some decent clippers that can give me an even 3 days growth all the time

    I tried but shaved it off as new hairs shouldn't be grey.

    Our NM does have a beard though.

    Currently got a beard but don't let it grow for more than week/10 days before shaving and starting again, generally.

    Of all the things worse than ironing shirts, shaving is probably the one.

    I'm an NM and I don't have a beard, I did have one for a while back when I was a tech though but a new girlfriend saw that off!

    I cant grow a beard at all, it looks ginger when I do (although im blonde/brown hair) also quite patchy so I generally keep it trimmed to stubble. I dont like the laughs and sniggers when I try lol! :P

    Phillips multi grooming set. Its well useful for those 'sensitive' areas too.

    Bearded here - I'm too slow in the mornings to get up, let alone shave, and the wife disliked the in between stage. Now I have 2 young uns I think it would traumatize them to remove (and I like the insulation effects it has )
