Women React To The Best And Worst Facial Hair

Although it’s a great message to tell men not to care what others think of your good or bad facial hair choices, you should know that there are some styles that women love and some that will just revolt them.

In order to avoid public shaming, we’ve put together a list of facial hair that men have been known to rock and have asked our female AskMen editors, writers and experts to give us their initial reactions to seeing them. Then, we went out on the streets to get real reactions from women on the same facial hairstyle to see if they agree.

So remember, if all these women question these facial hair choices, imagine how the rest of humanity would react to you rocking a face mullet that you can easily fix by spending a few minutes with the BIC® Flex 5 razor and its Balancing Sphere ™ that adds weight to give you the shave control you need to sculpt something that all women, expert or not, will appreciate.

HIPSTER SANTA?

“There’s something vagrant-like about this look. I want to say that it’s primal and sexy but I just find myself looking at it and wondering what sort of food and bacteria is stuck in that long beard. Does he think he’s a hipster Santa? Some men can pull off some beards, absolutely, but this one doesn’t fit the rest of his style — he has sleek hair and then the beard of a trucker? I don’t get it.”

THE PERFECT JAWLINE

“It would be a crime against humanity to hide a jawline like that behind a bushy beard. This guy ticks off all the best qualities of the dream date character from the ‘Mystery Date’ board game. I can’t say for sure, but I have a strong suspicion that outside the frame of this picture, this guy is holding a bouquet of roses and a gift certificate to a fancy manicure place that does nail art. A+ look.”

THE HAIRY BIB

“Wow. This checked-out dude’s overgrown beard can double as a bib. It’s time for him to trim the bushy food trap, take down the ‘stache and clean up his sideburns because no matter how much of a chivalrous man you are, this kind of facial hair is a bit of a red flag. This will keep him from looking like he’s being swallowed by his facial hair. I’d like to see more guy and more tie.”

STRONG AND SENSITIVE

Anouare Abdou, AskMen Editor

“As someone who has super sensitive skin, I appreciate a clean-shaven face on a man — even greeting someone with a kiss on the cheek can make my skin react if said cheek is scruffy. I also think the clean look is timeless and put-together, which probably (hopefully) reflects his personality. “

ON TREND EVERYWHERE

“I’m pretty sure this guy is wearing glasses just for fashion’s sake, and not for actual seeing, but I’ll overlook that to give him kudos for his very on-trend navy suit, and clean, kissable facial hair situation. While a five o’clock shadow can be sexy, a bare face is better and could makeout with me for hours without irritating my skin (double yay!).”

TOO ATTRACTIVE?

Too Attractive?

D.J. Mausner, Writer & Comedian

“Full disclosure: this man is so attractive he could shave “I know the words to every boy band song ever” into his beard and I would still compliment it. However, for the sake of professional facial hair analysis, I will try not to factor in that his jaw was cut from marble. If beards reflect someone’s nature, then this must be the most consistent man in the world. The uniformity of the hair on the top and bottom of his face is seamless. I can’t imagine the steady hand it would require to cut every hair on one’s head with such precision.”

PAST ITS PRIME

Past Its Prime

Katie Chang, Grooming Expert

“Immediately, I think of rock stars way past their prime . He’s too lazy to go clean-shaven, but also too lazy to properly groom what facial hair he has, and lazy starts from the inside, which is always a warning sign about a guy. Unless you have to sport this “style” for a reason — like if you’re method acting — ditch it altogether.“

JUST NO

Just No

123RF/AskMen

Nancy Webb, Writer & Comedian

“Like a silly party hat or having your own catchphrase, a novelty haircut and beard style are pretty clear indicators that you are to be avoided at all costs in a social setting. ‘The ol’ half n’ half. Wait, is that a thing?’ Exactly. If you’re looking for a way to assert your bold, kooky personality by way of your beard, you might as well have a long gray wizard beard.”
