Somehow this topic has come up three times in the last four days and now I'm curious -

There are quite a few male celebrities who sport perma-stubble. It actually looks as if they shave with a guard on or something to achieve a 5 o'clock shadow, 24 hours a day.

Anyone here do that or know how it's done? Or is it just that these guys are so damned virile that they turn from wiping their freshly-shaved faces and a grunt and a scowl later, there's a quarter inch of hair bristling out of their chins?

mine gets that way at the 4 day mark. But i get way too many women thinking I'm george clooney, and they start bothering me, so, I shave it. Too much hassle dealing with all those swooning ladies.

LOL

Right, but do some guys craft stubble like topiary? That's what I want to know.

Norelco Beard Trimmer -- has various depth settings. You can choose how rugged you want your facial hair.

When I sport a beard, I use that to keep the beard trimmed, and my trusty Mach-3 for the wet work.

That's the way it's done, with a beard trimmer set on the lowest setting.

http://www.amazon.com/Philips-Norelco-T980-Vacuum-Trimmer/dp/B000FEF1V4I know how men shave! I've been married for a baker's dozen years - and I've even opened my eyes once or twice.

I think my question must not make any sense.

no, you question makes sense, and I know that there are trimmers that will allow you to set the settings so that it looks like you have that perma-stubble look all the time.

I don't know any guys who go to all the trouble to do this, but I'm absolutely certain that it's done.

A beard trimmer is used to keep the beard in shape, whatever shape/length you want it to be in. So, yeah, that would be how to do it.

Now with dclary and Mr. Sinclair mocking their manhood, nobody's going to admit to pruning to just-shaved-three-days-ago.

Why, oh why, do I have a want to shave my head now? I want a perma-stubble brainpan.

No. Women SHOULD be carefully trimmed. In fact, no hair below the equator is a good rule.

I think that's it. Kinda like my husband. :)

The trimmer is good for keeping the goatee well-shorn. Number four setting for the upper lip and the sonbitch (that little tuft below and centered on lower lip). Number three setting on the rest of the chin. I suspect the number one setting would give that stubble look, but I'd rather lather up and clean the rest with a regular razor. That stubbly look just gives me that "I live in a cardboard box" countenance.

And facial hair is to virility as breast implants are to nursing.

I treat it the same way as a field of wheat. Let it grow until luxuriant (roughly two hours), chop a bit off and then set fire to the rest.

It's great for my complexion.

It's done with the Hunky Pro Max™ beard trimmer. As seen on TV. You can get one for six easy payments of just $19.95 (plus shipping and handling of $24.95) . . . but if you call in the next hour they will knock one payment off! As your free gift they will also include the Brad Pitt Hunky Pro™ hair styler--A $40 value! The first ten callers will also get the Chuck Norris Super Nose Hair Trimmer™.

Does that come with the Ear Hair trimmer as well? Or do you have to buy that bad boy separately??

Lol! It's always a little disturbing to me. There's grooming and then there's simulating prepubescence. Worrisome.

The question is not why the guys have this look, but why women seem to encourage this look. None of the ladies I know like to have their faces or other tender body parts sandpapered into a rash.

How many men here would enjoy viewing a woman in a slinky short dress and yet she is sporting fur leggins? Naturally grown.

Still, I've had the longing to shave my head for years. Decades, really. And I don't know what that's all about. If it wouldn't take years to grow it back, I swear I just might.

I've given up hugging my sister-in-law's boyfriend hello or goodbye. The man is a cactus and I can feel his friendly cuddles for about twenty minutes. My poor face!

But, if I'm honest, there are times when it's awfully pretty. I'm sure that's why it's popular.

Men's magazines push this stubbly look yet have advertising for men's depilitories and long articles on "manscaping", chest electrolosys, and the benefits of body waxing.

12-09-2009, 06:31 PM
... and the benefits of body waxing.It makes them aerodynamic and hydrodynamic, which is convenient for when I push their prissy asses off a cliff.

I trim my hair with a #1 razor, and my beard with the second lowest setting on my trimmer. Gives me the overall stubble look, but still appears well groomed and intentional. Yet I only need to maintain 1-2 times a week.

Now that it's cooler, I'm growing in my hair and shaving down to a goatee.

I don't think it's the same thing at all--a man having some facial stubble and a woman having stubbly legs.

I'll admit that, as a flamingly homosexual man, yes, I do use my trimmer to keep my 5 o'clock shadow in working order.

And my flava' sava'.

And I'll be damned if anyone didn't think I was frickin' pretty.

ETA: Erm... handsome. I meant handsome.
