Beards and bald heads
« on: November 25, 2008, 05:24:52 PM »
I generally grow a full beard from September to March and allow it to grow with only minor trimming keeping it neat.  By March it is close to 4 inches long.  Since going sly in July, I have put off the annual growth.  As a professional, I am concerned about a full beard and baldness being a little too radical.  I plan to go unshaven (face, not head) during the Christmas holiday break to try it out.  A beard does keep my face warm during the winter.  Any suggestions?

As long as your beard looks neat, I don't see an issue.

Take a look at my avitar.  The length you see there is about the longest I am comfortable getting away with right now.  But I don't feel like I am being outlandish.  There have been some others here with full beards and shaved heads.  That might give you some encouragement.

I work in a so-called professional environment (medicine) and I have had nothing but compliments about my beard from patients and colleagues alike.

Yeah, I think some guys with a shaved dome look OK with a beard. I always use to grow a beard in the winter also but the last few years since being sly I just can't bring myself to grow one. Since I retired I work part time at a funeral home and have to don the suit and tie etc when called out to work and am not sure how the full beard would look for that occasion.   :-\

I think the 5 o clock shadow look suits a sly dome. Think Jason Statham et al.

Hmmmmm!!!! Wonder Where i Fit On this issue LOL. first off I dont know how you define a professional job? I always thought if you do your job well your a professional no matter what the job is. i deal with the public at work on a limited basis or when i cover other shifts. i work nights at a major towing company we handle the evidence garage for the detroit police dept.i deal with police officers and investigators. any car deemed on hold for any forensic work comes to us from anywhere city wide. i've had nothing but compliments on my beard, mostly questions are asked i.e. how long did it take to grow,how do you keep so soft,or whats the longest it's been.i have been thinking of having it braided with red,white and blue beads in support of a friends son who is in iraq as a marine.i,m also man enough to know that no matter how short or long,kept or unkept, i keep my beard someone will object to it. thats fine because you have the right to your opinion.if you start to invade my space and not consider my right to my choice of bearded or shaven then can get screwed.

Tow, I'm green with envy.  I would give anything to have a beard like your.  Unfortunately, Mother Nature does have a sense of humor.  All I get are patches.  Lots of head hair but no beard.  I agree with you, be yourself.

As long as your beards not scraggly and well kept I don't think you will have an issue. I've never had one with mine.
