Hair of the Face

Currently, my facial hair, which I consider a vital aspect of my masculinity, is in a state of fashion limbo. I’ve taken off my goatee and am considering what should be the next style I go for. Here’s what I’m looking at:

  • Old Reliable: Just grow my goatee back and call it good. To heck with change and what not.
  • The Clooney: My temporary solution, which consists of stubble just like George Clooney. This is a compromise style for it allows me to have some facial hair while not committing to anything long-term and bushy.
  • Full Beard: A full beard. I can’t grow a good full beard, but this is still an option . . . if I’m bold . . .and daring.
  • The Van Dyke: This would consist of a mustache connected to Old Reliable via hair on the sides of my mouth. It might be neat to try this, but I’ve heard various disparaging comments about this style that I don’t like.
  • The Tom Selleck: A big bushy mustache. I’d call it “Magnum.”
  • Baby Face: Just go clean shaven. Booooring!

Vote on my new poll. Do it.

UPDATE: Re-named the Full Goatee to the appropriate name: The Van Dyke (Thanks, Micah and Chris!).

Also, I’m a little distressed that most votes so far are for The Tom Selleck. Dude, you people don’t want to see Magnum. Seriously.

  1. As long as you are single, I think The Clooney is THE most attractive option on pretty much any decent looking guy. When you become unsingle – The Clooney is still hot, but uncomfortable for the person who has made you unsingle.

    I love Tom Selleck. If you go the Tom Selleck route, I don’t think I’ll be able to talk to you anymore ;). I think Tom Selleck is the only one that can pull of The Magnum PI.

  2. Isn’t the “full goatee” really called a “Van Dyke” or something of that sort? My vote is for a cross between a Clooney and a “Soul Patch.”

  3. the tom selleck mustache is only hot on tom selleck. on anyone else it’s creepy. . . actually, it’s creepy on tom selleck too. nevermind. DON’T. i would go for the half clooney/half the way it is: the goatee with occasional stubble, that way when you clean up the stubble for special occasions it’s a much more visible effort. ben does that, it’s hot. i am of the firm opinion that anything other than a simple goatee either looks homeless and scary or fred durst-y. why i have put any thought into this at all kind of frightens me, but see, this is why you should stay in seattle, because i will refuse to ponder your facial hair if you move out of state. 😯

  4. Heed not those who would sabatoge your potential to attract a mate, dear Steve-o. 😉 Take it from this redblooded american woman – the clooney is HOT. I try and get Chadd to do The Clooney, but he likes to be cleanshaven.

    Is Leigh a gal? If so, see, she agrees with me and has good taste in goatee selections!

  5. 😀 really go radical dude. off with the goatee. off with the ‘stach. off with the clooney stubble. then shave your head. totally hairless! (don’t tell mom I said this)

  6. Full Beard! DO IT! Or at least compromise and do the amish/lephracaun/Abe Lincoln thing I got goin’ on. Try it, you’ll like it.
