    Are moustaches the new beards?

    Those furry little beasts can be seen everywhere scurrying around the streets of Britain and one can't go anywhere without seeing them.

    Do you find them a turn on or a turn off?

    I haven't noticed them much here in the US, but the beards that young people are starting to wear here are all over and they are those very long and narrow beards.  I think pro baseball, Red Sox may have started the trend?  I saw a young man in my office building the other day with one, and I could tell he had such a fresh young face under that beard.  It seems to hand just from the chin or something.  Funny to see them in a business atmosphere.

      i quite like them.  I love it when people show a little individuality.  It shows they have a little personality, well, perhaps that is just in my mind:)

      Yes, they do have personality, and I meant to say "hang" from the chin.

    I would welcome this change. The beards are not my favorite, but I am "old-school".

    Just because you can grow hair somewhere doesn't mean you should. Other than brows and lashes, I am not a fan of facial hair. I think all men (and all women too) are more attractive without beards and mustaches.

      Agreed though from a photographic point of view, I love taking photos of men with facial hair.  Definitely think women are more attractive without facial hair:)

    Sally, I am not biased.  I do not like facial hair, ie. beards or mustaches on men or women.  LOL

    First husband wore a mustache most of the time we were married.  What was I thinking??  Yes, we had a son.  Thank God it was a son 'cause
    now, he has turned into a hairy gorilla.  Can you imagine what a daughter
    would have looked like?? 
    Son has both mustache and short beard.  I love my hairy son, but, me-oh-my, you could braid the hair on his back.  Don't know where he got all this hair.  No one in my family is extremely hairy.  My current husband could not grow a mustache if his life depended on it.  Ha, ha
    I have never noticed long black hair on my back.  Maybe, I should get the mirror our and check my back.  I could join the circus as the gorilla lady and travel all around the world.  It is never too late to start a second career!  Watch out world, here I come!!
    PS.  I just checked my back.  No fur there.  Guess I will have to give up on my dreams of traveling the world as the gorilla lady. :-)

      I am relieved to hear that you have no hair on your back though I for one would have been the first person to visit  the the travelling circus.  You really do have a great sense of humor.  This is definitely where you talent lays:

    It does not matter, women do not like men who grow either these days. They may like the men but do not like the hair on the faces. I think that it itches or irritates them somehow when they come close.

    I think that men are growing moustaches to have a French look. Personally, I do not like them. They are still hair on the men's faces.

      I think you are right, they might look good from a distance man but personally I agree with you.  As for that unshaved bristle look - just an excuse not to wash and shave yuck!
