    Hm. I can think of a few: five o'clock shadow, spinach chin, stubble, slime 'tache (that mustache some men have but you can only see when they sweat), juvenile hangers (those long silky strands very young men who haven't started to shave get) and hag hairs (those weird hairs women sometimes see growing around their face and have to pluck).

    Van Dyke : A thinly trimmed moustache and a beard on the chin with no side burns. Popular in the early 17th Century, and often appearing in the portraits painted by the artist van Dyke.

    Sideburns: hair allowed to grow from the cheeks in front of the ears, also called sideboards. Named side burns as a corruption of US Politician and Civil War General Ambrose Burnside who made the style fashionable.
