To pull this one off successfully is an art all by itself. Just the right ratio of rough and groomed is needed for the irresistible sexy effect that worked so well for Harrison Ford, Crocodile Dundee, David Beckham and
this sexy guy down the road where you live. Somewhere between scratchy stubbles and full beard is a sweet spot and the men who find it are rather popular with the ladies. Wear it with a leather jacket or a fine suit, it
is one of the most popular ways to make a statement of being free spirited, creative, sexy and well rounded in culture and adventure.
But a little warning has to be expressed here as well. Even handsome celebrities like Brad Pitt and Ashton Kutcher can ruin the effect with having the fuzz go overboard, down the neck or too high up the cheeks. A scruffy
beard does not mean you can ignore the grooming kit and your razor.
Dali pushed it to the lengthy and twirled limits, John Waters wears it in its daintiest form, the narrow, finely styled pencil mustache is still today the attribute of a man with a high fashion sense, a vintage charmer
with tendencies of a bon vivant. He is appreciative of fine arts and fine cuisine and most likely knows how to wear a tux and what cuff links are for. A man of the old school who has nothing to proof except for his good
taste. Unfortunately the fine art of the pencil mustache is disappearing and to get some eye candy we sadly have to resort to classic movies featuring Errol Flynn, Clark Gable and their dandy contemporaries.
Nothing says “I'm cool” more than a goatee. From Adam Sandler to Will Smith, men adorn themselves with the hairy circle around lips and chin. Bohemian and hip, this look has been adopted by all ages and men of all walks
of life. It does not require too much maintenance but usually looks like the man who wears it takes care of himself.
Where is the soul in it? A fleck of hair on a man's chin is perhaps another way of expressing one's coolness and statement of an existence outside of boxes, but please, really? This often less than a square inch, tiny
little garden of male vanity is perhaps the most negligible and unneeded of all of the facial hairstyles. Sorry guys. It does however have a quite different effect when combined with a mustache: Welcome back Musketeer!
Whether you think “shaving sucks” and let it all grow wild, you just want to look older and distinguished or you spend hours fine grooming your mustache to express your sense of fashion, keep it clean and classy and don't
forget that a nicely shaven face is the preferred option for most women out there.
