Beards, Burns and 'Staches. What you got?

Pretty much all my life I have kept a clean shaven face. Recently I've decided to grow out some facial hair. I was wondering what the men of Foo roll with. Full beard, mustache, goatee or other? I found a chart with some styles to get the ideas rolling. Any favorites from you or your significant other?

Normally a Van Dike. Currently inching towards a Rasputin, in more ways than one.

These were two years ago, last year I attempted a Hulihee. I'm not sure what the plans are this year.

Copstash Standard.

In the 41 it was discovered that the filter is also set to suppress mentions of a certain banned member.

Oh, and major props to actors with lame facial hair like M. Wahlberg, J. Depp and L. Dicaprio for lowering the bar for beards. Makes it easier for the rest of us.

Monty Wooley, ftw



they didn't call him "the beard" for nothing....

I usually grow a meager imitation every winter. In fact I plan to stop shaving after this morning.

my face has the old full beard or stubbly beard, depending on how lazy I am...unless I feel froggy and shave it down to a Van Dyke, or cop standard, or completely off. My ass seems to have grown a Rasputin.

My routine is
Spring and Summer= Goatee
Fall = Van d.
First snowfall to spring= short box beard
I'm in the later at the moment. Hopefully, my 8 month old doesn't decide to yank on it.

Full beard and stash. Goes from English butler to Mountian man, then back when I get a haircut.

Take the b off of a certain poster who resides in Amsterdam to find another bizarre one.
