How hairy should a man be? Part 3

Wednesday, 5 October 2011

We thought we would examine the available styles and conduct some (highly unclinical) trials to find out just how hairy a man should be.

Part 3:
The goatee
The humble, yet versatile goatee can really change a man’s whole look. Usually teamed with a mustache, many actors with baby-faced good looks have turned to the goatee to give them a bit of much-needed, grown-up macho appeal. Johnny Depp is rarely seen without one, and Orlando Bloom has recently exchanged his smooth cheeks for one too, turning his schoolboy look into smouldering sexpot. Zac Effron has also donned a goatee to make him look a little more mature.

Digging that goatee and the bandana. In fact, digging it all, Johnny

A goatee is kept neat by regular visits to the barber, but if a DIY number is desired, it’s best to pay close attention to what the barber does in the first place. Investing in a decent razor to keep the edges neat and a good pair of clippers will keep it from going biblical.

Our panel said:
• Hey, we don’t generally go for facial hair, but Johnny Depp could wear a wombat on his face.

Again not that helpful, but quite funny.

What do you think?
