Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a yes or no answer to every question of aesthetics?
It’s certainly how magazines and pop culture presents things when it comes to how a man should or shouldn’t look.
But that’s rarely how the human brain works. As we’ve discussed before in regards to style, there are definitely some black/white rules, but for the most part each man needs to discover what works best for him. He needs to express himself through his style choices, within some basic frameworks.
One fascinatingly complex issue that has come back into the spotlight recently is that of facial hair. It’s not something you can break down into basic good/bad or right/wrong strategies. It all depends on the individual.
Forget anyone who tells you that beards are a 100% guarantee to be an alpha male lady-killer. Also forget anyone who says they’re an automatic job-loser and impossible to pair with a business suit.
It’s just not that simple.
With a little bit of research, you can figure out the length and style of facial hair that’s right for your life, your career, and your goals.
