Opinions on Creative Facial Hair

What's Your Take on Guys' Creative Facial Hair?

Some women love a bearded man. Historically, I have not been among them. But through years of intense beard-aversion therapy, I've come to believe that well-groomed facial hair can look good on the right guy. (Case in point: comedian Todd Levin.) Despite this progress, however, creative facial hair — goatees, chin straps, handlebar mustaches, and the like — makes me pray to the gods of Norelco.

It's awful, but when I meet a man with a braided goatee, all I can think is, "1994 called. It doesn't even want the goatee back." Do not get me started on the soul patch.

Many women love it when men get artsy with their facial hair, so I pose the question to you. Do you like a little creativity on the face, or is it too Village People for you?

I actually like it, and am amazed with the designs men create with their facial hair.

I personally dislike facial hair on my husband. If a man was going to sport it I would prefer he have a well groomed beard as opposed to a design. Facial hair designs bother me to no end.

You changed the pic! And it brought to mind the most vulgar name for any sort of facial hair I've ever heard. I've heard that thing in the middle, the one that looks like an extended soul patch, referred to as a "dick broom." :o

I love facial hair, but anything that tells me it takes a man longer to groom than it takes me is too much. I hate anything even remotely creative; facial hair should be manly and simple haha...

There's this character on the show Community with star-shaped sideburns. Fortunately I've never seen anyone with 'starburns' in real life.

Oh no. What is a starburn? Please don't tell me that it's a sculpted sideburn. Don't think I could handle that.

Starburns!It's like creative outfits, or hair, or tattoos. Sometimes it really suits the person, looks kind of cool, but I couldn't imagine most people I know pulling off the same look.

Silly! A well-trimmed beard, mustache, or goatee looks good. On the right person, some big ol' mutton chops can look good, too (though those "right people" are few and far between). But for the most part, creative facial hair looks silly.

I like a well groomed mustache or beard but don't like the creative ones at all. The soul patch is the worse.

I don't like regular facial hair, so creative facial hair is out too. Plus, it just always looks kinda douchey to me.
