Do you still like beards?

When Alex accidentally grew a beard five years ago (he had the flu), I told him he looked rugged and handsome. Surprised, he said I was the only woman he knew who actually liked beards. But since then, beards have blown up in a huge way. For the past few years, it has seemed as if every guy—famous or otherwise—has grown a beard. Do you agree?

But last week, the Guardian ran an article asking, "Have we reached peak beard?" Apparently, they have gone mainstream and now might be on the wane.

So, I'm curious: Do you still like beards? Are you sick of them? Do you just want to see a guy's actual face for once? I'm still a super fan. Over the past five years, Alex has sometimes considered shaving, but I insist he never does!

P.S. Before and after.

My husband has a beard and shoulder-length hair, which he frequently wears in a ponytail or man-bun. I love it. The beard makes him look serious and distinguished, in spite of his non-traditional hairstyle.

Yes, beards forever!

I refuse to let my husband shave his beard. I LOVE HIS BEARD!

Depends on the face! I think my hubby would look handsome with a beard, but alas, he can never grow one. His scruff always comes in patchy... :D Alex looks great with a beard!

Beards are absolute magic, and I will be forever grateful that my husband has one and I no longer have to worry about kissing a stubbly, scratchy face. A well grown beard is hands down the sexiest feature a man can have.

I looooove my husband's beard. I actually have called him "the husbeard" for the past three years, and it has caught on to the point that people who don't know him personally will still come up and say, "hello husbeard!" I'm with some of the other readers, in that I never really thought much about beards until my husband grew one, and now I find tall, dark-haired, bearded men extra attractive!

beards will always be a weakness for me. my husband has had some sort of facial hair (except for one mistake for a month) during the entirety of our 5+ years together.
beards forever!!!!

Love them! I have seen my husband clean shaven one time in the nearly eight years we have been together and it was WEIRD. I much prefer the beard, and I have come to realize that the men I find most attractive have beards.

I fell in love just because of his beard. He's now in Florida visiting family and I can only hope he won't shave the beauty off! :) Beards won't ever die!

I can honestly say it does depend on the guy really. It can look real handsome on some. But I can honestly say stubble is a must :)

I was married to my husband for 10 years and we were both bless with three children, living together as one love, until 2012 when things was no longer the way the was [when he lost his job]. But when he later gets a new job 6 months after, he stated sleeping outside our matrimonial home. Only for me to find out that he was having an affair with the lady that gave he the job. since that day, when i called him, he don't longer pick up my calls and he nothing since to come out good. Yet my husbands just still keep on seeing the lady. Until I met a very good friend of my who was also having a similar problem, who introduced me to a very good love spell caster. But i told her that if it has to do with things that i am not interested, but she said that it has nothing to do with pay first. but the only thing he was ask to do was just to go and buy the items to cast the spell, and that was what she did. And she gave me the spell caster e-mail address and phone number. When i contacted him, supremespellcaster@gmail.com i was so surprise when he said that if i have the faith that i will get my husband back in the next three [3] day, and off which it was really so. but i was so shock that i did not pay any thing to prophet lord, but my husband was on his knells begging me and the children for forgiveness. This testimony is just the price i have to pay. This man Prophet lord is good and he is the author of my happiness. His e-mail address: supremespellcaster@gmail.com

I've never thought much about them until I saw a friend who had shaved for the first time since I'd met him. http://infonewbi.blogspot.com/2013/04/download-opera-mini-7-untuk-hp-terbaru.html

Totally #TeamBeards. Especially in a city like NYC where men can be so manicured and pretty, it's nice to see a man look like a MAN-MAN. I always prefer my fiance with at least a few days scruff, if not a full beard.
