Well according to the guardian anyway. So who's going to reach for the razor in an attempt to re invigorate their attractiveness? I've actually been goateed up for a couple of years now. I must confess I seldom grow a beard with the foremost idea that they are attractive. I don't actually know many women who much care for them. Rather I prefer the maturity and extra gravitas they can sometimes afford, and stylistically speaking I just think they're plain cool. As a result mine is staying trendy or not, but what do my hirsute brethren think?

Pardon the double reply.

Any how.

One should bear in mind that the relevant article in The Guardian dates from 2014, six years before Covid and it's variants, and the lockdowns both mandatory and self-imposed that followed. Beards on men these days are not quite the apex of fashion, but as some have put to me IRL, it's an awful lot easier to care for a face that doesn't have to be shaved slick all of the time.

Pre-pandemic, I was not one to grow more than a handlebar moustache, albeit with huge curved handlebars (curls) on the sides. Now, while I still do not go in for a full beard, I do have rather pronouned "muttonchop" sideburns that often hang a bit low with extra length on the bottom hairs. Why? Because it makes for less to have to shave off. I do frequently still have large handlebars on my moustache (regrowing them [the handlebars] now, truth be told, after a recent trimming accident one morning when I was only half conscious *shudder*).

Maybe I'll post a photo some time soon, when my handlebars are back to a respectable width...

I maintain a mustache/goatee combo nearly constantly. However, due to the nature of my hands having taken some not-insignificant nerve damage, I find it rather hard to shave (even with an electric shaver), especially with my chosen tool, the safety razor.

"But Xenos!" I hear you say, "Cannot your lovely wife shave you?" NO. No she cannot. I don't want that woman within 20,000 leagues of my jugular with a sharp object. Not that I don't trust her, I do! With my life! But the woman is a bit of a klutz with a blade, we are-after all-talking about the woman who managed to cut herself on a blunt piece of metal.

Therefore, how "beardly" I am on a day to day basis is entirely dependent upon how well my hands are feeling prior.

Does that mean I'm less attractive? Well, I'm a sodding hideous git to start wit', so I'll leave that up to the masses.
