My fiance is clean shaven. He is incapable of growing hair on his arms or legs, and his facial hair grows in patchy and he looks like he’s 12 if he doesn’t shave every/every other day.

However, I don’t mind facial hair if it’s kept neat. He would look cute with a little scruff if it grew in evenly!

Mrs. Mouse:  my husband is clean shaven and I definitely prefer that.  I once dated a guy with a beard and it drove me nuts.  It’s so refreshing to see that different people prefer different things.  It makes finding the right person for you all the more special!

Personally, I’m not a fan of facial hair. If it’s blonde, then I don’t mind stubble on the upper lip/chin/jaw, but otherwise I really don’t care for it.

I’ve always been more or less anti-facial hair. My FI is luckily clean-shaven most of the time, but I’ve discovered that I find him sexy in different ways when he has stubble or even grows it out for a bit.

My husband has a goatee- no mustache or anything, just the goatee. I never liked them until I met him, it just suits him. He’s shaved it off once in our 6 years together for a Halloween costume and I hated it! But I definitely prefer him with a full beard, which he sometimes grows out in the winter. Last winter he didn’t because he was shaving his head and thought it’d look stupid, but now that he’s grown his hair back, he’s going to grow the beard back this winter and I can’t wait. I love facial hair, I find it very manly and sexy. Especially on him. Never preferred it before.

I asked my DH to grow out his beard for the wedding 2 weeks ago, I love it. He cant have it for work and convinced his boss it was only until the wedding so he had to shave it back into the goatee. Either way, I prefer the facial hair over clean shaven, but the beard is so sexy.

I’m the same way- he has a beard and I love it! I’ve seen him clean shaven a few times and it freaked me out too lol.

I never found facial air attractive until I met DH. He has always worn a neatly trimmed goatee or beard since he was able to, and I have only seen him clean-shaven once. He looks like he is about 12 without facial hair, and he gets far more respect in his business setting with facial hair than without. It isn’t the best look for everyone, but I like facial hair on DH.

Quite frankly, my husband (who I love dearly) looks like he’s 14 when he’s clean shaven, haha. I much prefer a bit of stubble, but I draw a line when it starts bordering on “beard” status.

My husband is clean shaven, and I prefer him that way. In general though, my overall preference is probably shaped to prefer clean shaven because my husband is. If he originally had a beard, maybe I’d feel differently? I don’t know!

My husband had a full beard when we first started dating and now it’s a goatee. I like the goatee much better – it looks good on him and it doesn’t scratch me as much when he kisses me! 🙂 I was anti-facial hair until I met him, but he pulls it off. He had to shave it this summer and it was so weird, haha.

Mrs. Mouse:  FH has a beard and mustache. I love it :-). When I first met him he was clean shaven. He definitely looks better now. It took 4 Years for him to decide to grow it out. 🙂

My husband has a full beard as well.  I think he has too much of a baby face when he is clean shaven but I haven’t seen him that way in a decade 🙂
