The fact of the matter is, not all are created equal. Abraham Lincoln didn't look good and neither will you. For real though, even if it hadn't been forever tainted by a horrible dictator, this weird-looking upper-lip decor would be a definite no. You know, like that guy from college who insists he was "meant to be born in another time," tries (and fails) to pull off a bow tie, and refers to his watch as a "timepiece." No one likes that guy. He has been wearing the same pair of jeans for the last two years. It's like the "is a hot dog a sandwich" of facial hair arguments. Whatever gentrified neighborhood this guy's living in, he was definitely there BEFORE it was gentrified, got it? He can also perform cunnilingus on you while simultaneously preparing coffee in a French press. Medium-scruff guy likes to cultivate an air of mystery.

Read on for the most common facial hair options a guy has, ranked from least to most sexy. Coming in last place is the toothbrush mustache, a favorite of old-world mustachioed men like Charlie Chaplin and... He's in touch with his emotions to the point that it sometimes makes others uncomfortable. This is the facial hair for the guy who thought the "I Want You to Think I'm a Hipster Even Though I'd Get Offended If You Called Me That" forehead tattoo might be too subtle. He's perpetually just the right amount of confident and competent. Of course, if left unchecked, five o'clock shadow quickly morphs into "guy who just hasn't shaved in a while," which isn't so much a facial hair choice as a few days of laziness. A scruffy beard is a good look between shaves; and it works if you don't really want to commit to the full-beard lifestyle but want to keep potential mates on their toes. I know all you boys out there have a hard-on for facial hair, but a clean-shaven man is sexy as hell. He also may or may not cultivate weed -- maybe that was the startup?!
"Everyone had to explain that he was in fact part of our group and no, he wasn’t trying to cut us...." 2.
When couple pics require more work than you’re used to. Taking selfies in the sun is a bitch," says Reddit user ehs5.
Another reason he chose this facial hair is to have the opportunity to twirl the ends of his mustache when arguing with people. He enjoys golf but is not particularly good at it, and mostly just likes the beer and the golf carts. Get yourself a high-quality razor and some face cream so you don't get flaky after shaving. This is a man who seems comfortable in any setting.
To the surprise of no one, Mel Gibson has rocked this look and scared many children, probably. This one is for pseudo alpha guys who probably once took steroids, but are starting to get flabby.
If you're not familiar with this look, an imperial leaves a strip of hair right in the center of the chin and long, sculpted sides on the 'stache.
When it comes to interracial dating, the people who’ve been there will tell you there can definitely be struggles.
In a recent Ask Reddit thread, interracial couples laid out the real obstacles they encounter daily that they weren’t expecting before they got together.1. "My husband and I went to Disney World with my side of the family. We’re in line and when it’s our turn for the ride, they always cut the line off when it got to him," says Reddit user captawesome1794.
