    Do you think a beard makes a man more or less manly and/or pretty?

    Very simple actually, do you like men with beards?

    No, I don't like them and I am proudly without beard. I have nothing against men with beard (a part I don't like most of them physically), but I have all against people who believe "beard makes you more manly". Surely it is not beard to make you more or less manly, and surely taking care of our body (including cutting beard) should not be limited only to women (beard does not applies to women, but that is a general statement, not regarding explicitly beard). "Beard makes you more manly" seems a stereotype of the past, not much different from "if you shave your body you are gay" or other similar stereotypes. It is your behaviour and your general style to make you more or less manly, not the fact you have beard or not.
    That's my opinion, so: if you like beard, keep it and show it proudly. If you don't like it (like me, without beard and with a completely shaved body), cut it without being afraid of "being considered less manly", because I think similar stupid statements should not even be mentioned in a modern society, even if unluckily most people seem to still think about them.

    Hope I answered your question exactly, by doing this I expressed my opinion and my personal preferences, that surely shall not be the same ones of other people.

    Full beards don't do anything for me. I think that the guy in the picture would look really handsome if he were clean-shaven; the beard seems to get in the way of his good looks. That being said, a full beard might be useful for hiding a weak chin.
    On the other hand, I am fine with a goatee. Some men wear goatees exceptionally well. For the most part, I prefer my beards on one man only. His name is Santa!

    It's a style choice. If they take good care of it then it's likely to be more attractive looking. It's the same as with women and how they maintain their hair.

    I don't think it makes them any more or less manly than any other traits.

      The thing is: How easy are they (full beards) to maintain? The hair is on the face, by the nose and mouth, where he blows his nose and eats. Stuff gets caught in there. So Not Sexy.

      Keeping it clean is not a problem, however that depends on each person. Some women can't keep their hair look fine and clean, that's the same with men and their beards.

    I know many men who look way better wearing full beards and when they shave it they look like teenagers. I do believe that beard won't help a man if he's not manly (like long hair won't help a girl who's rude or just a tomboy).
