What do you see when you see an unshaven man? Do you see a put-together man or a man needing to shower and clean up his appearance? The unshaven look is seemingly becoming more popular. Some people prefer the unshaven look to a full or partial beard, which, if you watch ads and read magazines, seems old fashioned. Women over 40 seem to think it looks unclean and think the men are just lazy, but younger women don’t seem to mind. Following are the reasons for which people prefer unshaven looks:
- Lots of women seem to like guys who wear a moustache or beard or even a little facial hair.
- Being unshaven hides a poor complexion or acne scars.
- It is easier to take care of than a beard and men only need to shave once in a while and not down to the skin.
- Media is what sets fashion. When you turn on your television, you find that all the models, news anchors, and actors are going for the unshaven look. So it seems to be a fad that other men want to follow.
I guess the old adage is true - beauty lies in the eyes of beholder. You cannot judge or decide which one looks better. Like all fads, this one will probably fade too. Next year will bring a new look.
