  • Not all men need facial hair to look manly, masculine, or attractive, some do, and some can do well with either option. Facial hair by default makes men look more masculine because most women can't grow facial hair, so facial hair is considered to be a masculine trait

    Not all men need facial hair to be attractive, but facial hair makes men look more attractive. Seriously, I've tried paying attention to the guys I work with and know and actors in movies, and my consensus is that all guys look better with some form of facial hair (it has to fit their look and definitely a big "no" for porn stashes). One of the doctors I work with doesn't shave everyday, and I think he looks more attractive on the last day before he shaves than when he's clean shaven. And the bouncer at the door of the main club I go to shaved his winter beard off this week, and I was surprised that I found him less attractive without it. I remember my art teacher's assistant looked anatomically weird when he shaved his off. And also my uncle doesn't look like my uncle without his either. I used to think beards were weird and could have little monsters in them, but I've recently completely changed my outlook on it. I don't find clean-shaven guys to be attractive anymore, and a guy has to at least have stubble to be attractive to me now... Maybe I'm just weird, but I can't r

  • Take Channing Tatum for an example! He usually doesn't have facial hair but he's what I'd consider to be extremely masculine and I think a lot of wrestlers don't have facial hair and are still pretty masculine. (Not that I know any wrestlers lol.) I'd also say that Andy Biersack has a really masculine face and I've never seen him with any sorta facial hair... Well! I hope this helps! :)

  • ... he does?
    I beg to differ. I think it's a very individual thing. Some guys look better with a bit of facial hair, some don't. I personally prefer my boyfriend to be clean-shaven. I never think he's any less masculine or 'manly' just because he shaved.

  • I prefer clean shaven men. This is because some mens hair is not that soft or sometimes things stick to it, or it just plain doesn't suit them. Some men look good with facial hair and some just don't.

  • Never been a fan of a man with a lot of facial hair. Its annoying. Some hair is okay tho. I prefer a guy who looks youthful looking but has that manly look about him

  • Depends on his facial structure. If he's got a more angular face, then hair is optional. If he's round or doughy, then facial hair is really gonna help.

  • Absolutely not. I prefer clean shaven, in fact. This seems to be trending these days but I find it unattractive if the guy looks like he just stepped off the cast of The Revenent

    • Men should be castrated before reaching puberty so that they never develop facial and body hair

  • I love my boyfriend's beard. But facial hair isn't necessary to be attractive.

  • No, not really. But I do prefer facial hair on males. They look so much sexier, more mature and very handsome with beards and mustachos.

  • Facial hair is a strictly male trait (well, close enough), so by default it makes a guy more manly (using your terms)
    More attractive is entirely subjective.

  • Please explain how "No" is different from "Facial hair is optional".
    Voted for the latter because I sometimes do have facial hair and sometimes don't, and I think some men look way better with facial hair than without.
    I don't have mine to look attractive or manly/masculine though. If anything then I'd gladly have my body & facial hair removed if it made me look more effeminate altogether. (Sadly it's not quite that simple.)

  • It is optional. My girlfriend likes it, my sisters hate it.

    Depends on the culture too, some places like facial hair like Europe and the Middle East, others like Asia generally dislike it.

  • Had a beard for a while. Girlfriend hated it. Other girls in my life loved it. Everyone is different. Women don't have one generic taste in men. Facial hair is not a necessity at all.

  • Depends on your face structure... but usually some facial hair gives your jaw a more angular look to it... which girls seem to like

  • Not really , I have had a moustache for so long I look weird without it.
    The only reason I keep it is because of skin irritation whenever I lob it off

  • For me it helps since complete shaven is too baby like, a stubble length is perfect.
    But it depends on the individual man and his other features.

  • I say it isn't necessary. Some girls like it and some girls don't. Some guys can't even grow a beard like my roommate. Depends on the beard too. If you don't take care of it, don't bother growing one.

  • Some men suit it, but other men doesn't suit it. If the man is handsome and suits the beard, it's attractive. Men who have a weak jawline or looks too young without beard do also get advantages with facial hair.

    • So it depends from man to man.
