That Hair…

Ravennas Monday MumblingsWelcome to Ravenna’s Monday Mumblings!!

I admit I had NO CLUE what to write for today, so I went to my fellow Quillers and asked for a topic idea.

Today we’re going to explore hair. Specifically, facial hair on men. Yay or nay? A little? A lot? Top of the lip only or full beard? The choices are endless, and of course it’s a personal preference so there is no wrong answer.

For myself, I don’t mind some stubble or a neatly-trimmed, barely-there beard or mustache. But the full beards kinda gross me out. Same with mustaches, although some men just look better with them. Like I said, it’s a personal preference.

Let’s explore, shall we?

Here are a couple of classic 70s longer hair, mustached, looks. The silly ad aside, I personally think the look on the left is a lot sexier than that weird bob styled hair on the right.

How about some comparisons?

Which Leo do you like better above? Clean-shaven or just a hint of hair? I think the hint gives him a dangerous quality, myself. Like bad-boy dangerous.

But I have to admit I like Keanu better without the hair on his face. He has a thin face to begin with and the hair makes him look gaunt.


Alex’s transition over the decades isn’t very striking, other than the graying of his hair. Personally, I think he looks better with the mustache.





And does Tom look even half as gorgeous without that mustache? No way! 



What are we seeing today?

Well the man bun is certainly popular. Personally, and I know most of you will not agree with me, I think they look ridiculous. Sorry, folks. Like I said, this is really a personal presence.

Which Jamie do you prefer? I like him better clean-shaven. He simply doesn’t have the right “bad boy” look to pull off the beard and mustache look.

The dude on the right has the longer hair I still love. Glad to see that’s making a comeback. But the dude on the left just looks sloppy. Is it the hair color? The shape of his face, or the fuller beard? I can’t tell. I simply don’t like the look.

Goatee, anyone? NO. And the bald look with a full beard? Maybe…

There are full beards… and then there are FULL BEARDS. How do they keep these things clean?

Who doesn’t look cool in shades??

And those eyes!! DANG!! 

I hope you’ve enjoyed this pictorial post! I’ve love to hear your opinions on facial hair.

Until next week, Happy Writing!!

  1. Love how this turned out. I’ve got to say I love a nice trimmed beard and moustache but not ones that you could dip in your soup.
    Long hair on the right guy is great, on the wrong one…Sends me screaming in the wrong direction.

  2. I just don’t like facial hair all that much. A neat, small goatee is ok on the right guy, and that sexy stubble works, but full beards? Totally squick me out. I see books with guys with beards on the cover? Nope. Just gross. Longer hair on the right guy I like too.
