    So random post of the moment.

    I recently decided not to shave, sure I have had the occasional Movember Tash, Goatee etc but this time I just decided to go the whole bear and let it grow wild, the only trimming I have done is top lip as having to suck food off the tash was getting a tad awkward.

    I was recently called Grizzly Adams and I loved it (although the wife doesn't).

    I have an event in mind as to when it will be cut off so at the moment it's kinda staying put for an indeterminate period of time.

    I can often be sewn sporting a nice full on Grizzly, for no reason in all honesty other than I'm full on lazy! Haha.

    I can relate to the food suckling though, I just think it's a nice treat an hour later when peckish and you find a tasty little surprise. Haha.

    I guess I normally have the 5 o'clock shadow beard/tash, can't grow the sides. However as I shaved yesterday, today I'm practically smooth :)

    Not allowed, she who must be obeyed has decreed.:dry
    However, when I've tried to put a bit of a beard on it's all different shades and I shave it off after a few days as its too itchy.

    Hair conditioner, massage it in and you're good to go.
    My wife doesn't like mine either so I know that feeling, it will be going in the next few months one way or another.

    So far today I have had my wife, son, mother and step father all tell me to get rid of it... needless to say it's still here... for the moment ;)

    I often have a full on beard, luckily the girl doesn't particularly care so i can get away with it.

    I'm running the marathon at the end of April in a stupid outfit, my highest donation to my charity chooses what outfit i wear on the day, which they've chosen at present, a ballerina outfit :dry so i figured a bloke with a massive beard would look a laugh in a ballerina outfit running 26 miles. think eurovision winner last year, and that'll be close

    Other than that, i'm generally lazy and just leave it to grow

    I'm generally found prowling around with a shortish goatee and a relatively closely scalped head (#2 or #3). I did grow a longer chin section whilst travelling to a couple of inches which I thought looked good and everyone else thought was daft, except the wife, she kinda liked it. Tried the beard thing, doesn't seem to grow to a decent enough bushiness to bother. Have already warned the wife that when I go grey I'm going Gandalf on her, with more braids.

    I'm normally sporting some form of facial hair these days although I've had to cut back from the full on Grizzly when I realised I was starting to look exactly like my father....

    Now its a goatee with a bit of a 5 o'clock shadow going on because maintaining my facial hair is wwwwwaaaaaaaayyyyyyyy down on my priority list on any given day.

    Not at the moment, but occasionally I do like the 5 o'clock shadow :)

    I am on and off... Right now I have a beard, but it's trimmed and maintained! My girlfriend likes the look, but hates the feel!! Haha go figure! Anyways, it comes and goes, never stays the same for too long. When I get bored or fed up, I shave.

    so I shaved mine off after I started to look really messy but then I don't bother shaving for a couple of weeks in between times.

    I am thinking I may just go full on ZZ Top and see how it looks come Xmas :)

    The only issue may well be if in the next couple of months I need to look smart when I talk to people about 'things'
