How do you feel about facial hair?

A very interesting survey was done on Match.com about men and their facial hair: http://www.katv.com/story/22058404/facial-hair-your-love-life-what-your-mustache-goatee-beard-or-stubble-says-about-you It seems men with mustaches think they're hot, men with goatees are least likely to settle down, men with full beards are shy, and men with stubble are hopeless romantics. From a woman's point of view, men with mustaches aren't all that attractive, and they actually prefer a clean shaven man! Men: Do you have facial hair and why? Ladies: Do you like facial hair on a guy? My husband has a mustache and goatee, he keeps it for the way it looks. I've had him shave it once or twice, but since he has a bald head it just makes him look weird. He does look better with the mustache and goatee.

It depends on the guy. When it comes to my husband though I prefer him to be clean shaven, although stubble is very sexy on him as well.

Sometimes the scruffy look is sexy.. but I don't like kissing it :)

I know what you mean. Stubble can be painful, at least when it first appears. Still, I can't help find it hot on my hubby! LOL

I really do not like beards. But something about a 5 o'clock shadow is appealing. Just make sure it isn't a full blown beard the next day. I also think a lot of guys look weird with a mustache, especially blonde or red headed men. I much prefer if they just have a goatee, so the mustache doesn't stand out.

I know what you mean, the lighter colors just look kinda funny. But I've always been more attracted to men with dark hair anyway.

I did see that article on the computer...it so interesting what they came up with. My husband has a mustache and has for 20 years. He would on occasion grow a goatee but the older he got it would grow out completely gray...which he didn't like. He has shaved the mustache off a few times and it is very strange to see him without it. He REALLY looks like his Dad without it so I thinks it is kind of creepy.

I've grown a goatee once, but I've always preferred my face to be clean shaven. I used to have a stubble all the time, but that stopped when I had kids. I cleaned my face up because I didn't want my kids when they were babies, to get a skin reaction from kissing them. Ever since, I've shaved every day. I don't think I could grow a full beard.

Good idea! Probably easier to shave than to trim a goatee anyway!

I like my husband with a bit of stubble or a clean shaven look - he has lovely thick curly hair (when he lets it grow) and I really liek that about him but, think that does look better when the rest of him is clean shaven!

I don't have a particular preference. There are men who look very sexy with a goatee, there are those who look sexy with a moustache. So for me, if a man is better looking without it, then he should go for a clean shaven look. But if he looks sexy with those, then he should keep it.

What if he looks terrible but likes it anyway? Would you tell him to shave?

I really don't mind if a guy has facial hair....like you said some for different reasons look better with a mustache or something....seems to me though that most men I have dated over the years usually did have some sort of facial hair.

I know my husband definitely looks better with it! He doesn't have much of a chin, but his goatee hides that and makes it look like he's got a normal chin.

Mostly I like it. I thought R looked better when he had a mustache, and Tony has a little goatee that I like on him. has to be neat and fit the face though. usually I don't like it on women :)

My husband had a small moustache which was okay but once when I cam back from the vacation frim the U.K. he had a beard. Horible. I told him that it had to go as I do not like kissing facial hair. He got rid of it pronto.

I would have too. I really wish my husband looked okay without the facial hair as I really don't like the way it feels..

I must admit that I don't like moustaches on their own, but they can look ok teamed with other facial hair. My own bloke normally has stubble, but I'm not sure he has a romantic bone in his body.

Well mine has a mustache and goatee.. he's no casanova and he sure doesn't jump from relationship to relationship.. even before he met me he was a pretty serious guy.. he never had any short lived relationships.

As a woman I like clean shaved guys. I actually like a man who is has feminine features, like Asian boyband. They are clean from any facial hair, they have clear skin. I am an Asian woman myself, I don’t really like masculine man or the man with lots of facial hair or body hair. They tend to scare me.

Hello dear, I have full facial hair only when not going to exit the house and not sleeping at my wife's place. My facial hair is not yet fast enough growing to shave it in less then 3 days and I usually end up with lots of cuts on my face if I try to do it. I am the clean shave type, and my wife likes it that way.

Well I prefer both clean shaved as well as beard. It just depends on the mood.

As for me, I prefer a clean shaven guy! I always find that men with beard or stubble or mustache or else look more older than those clean shaven guys. Another reason is that I don't love the feeling of touching them, and the most important, I do think having beard would bring problems of personal hygiene.

Facial hair need constance meainteance to look nic - man who like to groom may keep nice attractive goatee or moustache.
For a guy to have mustache and gottee which means he is good at grooming himself . BEcause taking care of the mustache is hard work for a man , because it need to be constantly trim around the nostrils , comb and clean from food debris and hence by logic , muctache guy are clean people. Goatee and mustache also made the face more evenly balance hence look more attractive too.

Well, I do think guys with full beards is hot. I like looking at a guy who shaves his beard then days later it starts to grow again that it appears greenish in his face. I was like OMG! hes so hot. I told my friends about my type of guy and most of them says EW! I think it only depends on peoples point of view. But for me, I find it really attractive.

Hey katsmeow, As for me, i'm not too sure. i think it would really depend on the guy itself. whether he looks good with mustache or not. However, if just to ask me like that with no guy in mind, i think i would rather go for a clean shaven guy :)

I'm attracted to guys with goatee and mustache, it looks hot for me and cool but it depends there are men that doesn't fit from any, it somehow shows their masculine appearance and being hard and tough and even fun
