Facial Hair or Not? Pics Included

Hey everyone. I'm in college. I have been growing some facial hair over break, and now comes the big decision. To keep it, or not to keep it?

I have a receding chin and a big, hooked nose.

My own judgment is that I look better from the front clean-shaven, but the profile demands some hair.

If you think the facial hair's better, what about the style/ what haircut do you think would go?

Thanks in advance!

I say without...

Maybe it's because you are smiling in the pics without facial hair, but you look much more lively and youthful in the pics where you're cleanly shaven. If I saw you with a goatee like that I would expect you to have a western european accent and a predilection for postmodern art.

I'd say without but maybe with a bit of stubble. Shave every second/third day.

cool. clean it is. It's funny you say that since I'm writing my thesis on postmodern art. I guess I'd rather not look like it though.

That's a really douchey goatee. I'd say ditch it, but given that sweater, your predilection towards postmodern art and your username, it might actually fit your personality.

still though, if its going to be douchey, you could make it UBER douchey and before you know it (paired with a total A-hole attitude) you'd still be attracting lots of hot women. unfortunately its the kind of women who are in to douches.

like a French accent with a pretentious attitude douchey?


That goatee/ thin mustache combo is ultra douchey and makes him look French or from middle eastern decent.Not sure what type of girls thats gonna attract(in my area).

unless you intend on growing that out into a dali handlebar moustache, shave it.
