So I was talking to an old friend of mine who I've known since I was 4. Anyway we were talking about life and society et cetra and dating came up.
Basically he let out how he's been feeling lately about my choice of style among other things, and that my look would attract the wrong type/limited few.
Long story short he wants the best for me and he wants me to shave off my facial hair, because he has kids & a fiancee and he wants me to find a good girl... he also wants me to go on wild sexcapades so he can live vicariously through me (lol which I can't object to but I don't think I have the bravado for that) but he does want me to meet someone worthwhile.
Anyway since this is based on first impressions/face value why not ask some strangers that don't know me personally.
So here's a goofy pic of me from 3 years ago when I tried being clean cut for like a month
And here's a pic of me today lol equally terrible but whatever (had to do the same dorky pose for the compare and contrast)
So what's your opinion?
What looks better?
What would you suggest instead?
Short and tame (except styled better) like pic 1

Long and wild (maybe altered a bit) like pic 2
19% (4)25% (2)21% (6)Vote
Something different or inbetween (elaborate in the comments - like keep the beard/lose the hair or shave the beard/keep the hair...& so on)
Thank you all for the contributions so far, especially those who went into great detail to even post multiple pics and alternative ideas.
The facial hair is within my control, because I can cut/trim it whenever I want, I'll have to try some different mustache waxes to see if I can make it look more proper. Also I get bored and let it get bigger and then I trim it down, sometimes way down.
As for the hair... *sigh* it's a process, I still haven't figured it out yet or what I should do.
I wouldn't have recognised these two to be the same person. hahaha. Well, then again, I don't know you, so yeah.
One of my friends keeps changing his style, and right now he looks like Wolverine's brother from X-men. Kind of hard to digest that. lol.
Anyway, back to you... personally, I like no. 2. don't know why. Maybe you look like an adventurer-philosopher there. Lol. The long hair suits you cos you have a long face. It gives you the fluff to go horizontal. (lolwut O_o :P )
O_O =O OMG. I was hunting for guys with braids (jeez, I just can't get blonds for some reason on google) when I realised that you'd TOTALLY look like Albrecht Durer if you grew your hair!!! :O http://www.abcgallery.com/D/durer/durer22.JPG
If you can let go of your hair, then I'd say shorten it to about 2 to 2.5 inches, shave your beard and moustache down to a french beard (no side hair). (this guy looks stupid, but it'll suit you - t3.gstatic.com/images
Lol. You just made me realise I hardly know celebrities and I hardly take notice of their styles. Lol. Guys and girls alike. O_o
All the girls say that you should cut your hair. In my opinion, DON'T, I like the long hair. But that's just me haha. I think it fits you and you look better in the 2nd pic, more unique. Facial hair isn't too bad but maybe you could get rid of some of it like the mustache. You look like wolf haha, I love it.
The beard does help you look older, but you're also kind of leaning toward the Mark Twain look in the second. Usually you want to have one item of focus around your face. So if you want to keep long hair, you need to tone down the facial hair. And if you want to keep up the facial hair you need to cut your hair.
I would recommend trimming your hair and the mustache. The mustache is too old fashioned.
