Is that George Michael look still in with the ladies? You know: a three-day-old beard?

That's one style I never particularly liked. I could generally tell the difference between an actual three-day beard and the not-very-cheap imitation, but only if I bothered to look for more than a couple of seconds.
(Well, you asked, and you didn't specify "young" ladies, you know.)

I like that look, it's very rakish.

Wait wait wait, these are two different things. There's the George Michael look, which involves carefullly trimming the beard to look like it's three days old and shaving the cheeks and neck (witness , the horror, the horror...). Then there's just not bothering to shave for three days.

I like them both. I think George looks pretty damned groovy in that pic, and I like a bit of stubble too.

Huh? Why would anyone fake a beard? Hair is free and easily grown.

At this stage I can't be all that fussy.

I'll keep that in mind, Louisa, when not shaving this morning.

To explain my terms: The "not-very-cheap imitation" of an actual three-day beard would be the groomed three-day beard. The "actual three-day beard" would just be three days' worth of beard, ungroomed.

"Mature" is better, in any event.

A three-day-old beard is also very rakish in the "garden rake" sense. I take it that you have never experienced cunnilingus with an unshaven chap. The stubbles rake and scrape your tender inner thighs, which turn red and make you walk funny for a week.

How does one groom such a short beard? Or do you mean shaving a longer beard short so it looks like a 3-day stubble?
"Mature" is better, in any event.

The first time I got my hair cut after growing a beard, the barber looks at me and says "It makes you look older." Then he quickly backpedaled with "I mean, more mature."
