Poll: Facial Hair

Having written about how it came to be that men started shaving, it just seems that this would be a really good poll. There seem to be a lot of different opinions regarding whether a man should shave or grow his mustache and beard. To be fair, I’ll say that I currently have both a mustache and a beard. I usually have a mustache but don’t always have a beard.

Still, both men and women tend to have opinions regarding whether men should shave or not. Thus, the poll.

  • Question of

    Which do you prefer in men:

    • A beard
    • A mustache
    • Both a beard and mustache
    • Clean shaven
    • I don’t care one way or the other
  • Question of

    Does a long beard make a man appear more distinguished or wiser?

    • Yes
    • No
    • Only once in a while
    • It makes no difference at all
  • Question of

    Abraham Lincoln grew a beard after a little girl, upon meeting him, said, “You’d look better with a beard.” Have you ever seen a man without a beard and thought that they’d look better if they had one?

    • Yes
    • No
    • I’ve never thought about it
    • It makes no difference


What do you think?

    • I haven’t always had a beard, but I’ve had a mustache for roughly 40 years of my adult life. Many Cherokees have difficulty in growing facial hair, so that is where it began for me. Most of the people I know personally wouldn’t recognize me without my mustache. :)) If I shaved it, my wife would be angry with me until I grew it back. I made that mistake only once in 39 years of marriage and I don’t want to go through that again.

      • Yes, I don’t like a moustache without a beard. I just can’t think of someone who looks better with it than clean shaven or with full beard / 3-day beard. Of course, everyone can do whatever they like.
        I have also read that the moustache is an important thing in many cultures. I read about a wealthy family who laid of their driver, because his moustachewas too sexual and it was innapropriate for the young daughter of the family. Of course, the driver would never shave that moustache.
