Male Facial Hair: Take it or Leave it?

Every military family can relate to the joy that spreads across the household when your spouse takes leave!! No PT, no crazy schedule, no demanding "Uncle Sam" butting into your relationship. You get a specific period of time that is undisturbed and strictly for you to do whatever you like! Military leave is somewhat like Christmas and a vacation rolled into one.

One of the more shallow things I love about my husband taking leave is his ability to grow out a devastatingly gorgeous beard. Yes, I love my man with facial hair and whether you'd like to admit it or not, most women find it appealing to be with a man that at least has the option of growing facial hair. Due to my husband's military career he isn't allowed to grow his beard out, ever! However, taking leave equals being able to let it grow wild!

Currently he's on a mission to "grow an Opie" ---->

For those that don't know, Opie is a character from "Sons of Anarchy" that has a sick beard. He rocks his hair uber thick and looks the part of a bad biker.

When it comes to facial hair on your man what do you prefer? Clean shaven or hairy and rugged?

my hubby goes HAIRY in the winter to protect his skin. It makes him look older and more scary to the norm...but when its shaved, its LOVELY. So I so no..just a little chin hair to play with and a mustache to make him look like a man.

is an opie the same thing as rozay? (rick ross beard)?

I like clean :) or when it's a thin sideburn line, and shaped nicely.

@ TamStyles - I like my husband to have a nice amount of stubble, like a week's worth, and then to shave his head lol.

@ Bombchell - Yes, I guess it's the same thing. I just think Rick Ross is a bit scary and gross lol... but I can't stand men that have thin strips of hair lol... usually too metro of a look for me.

As an ex-military spouse I know exactly what you mean. I loved when my husband grew out his beard. It always sucked when he had to cut it 30 days later, lol.

I definitely love facial hair, I think it is sexy. Even if it is not shaped up, I kinda dig that semi-rugged look.

@ Bajan Beauty - I'm glad someone else out there can relate!! It's easy to not care about facial hair when growing it whenever is an option... but the military throws a monkey wrench into that all the time. This leave is amazing lol... don't want it to end.
