It really pisses me off how soo many places make you completely shave to work there. It's ridiculous. Bottomline I understand the reasons for it so you don't have to list them here. In my opinion, a well groomed beard should be okay. I'm not saying a big ZZ Top beard would be ok, but if its clean and groomed then there shouldn't be a problem. If I had a business I'd never be super nazi-like and make people change there appearance drastically to make money. I'd respect individuality and a sort of "come as you are" type of mentality. I only get one life, why can't I work and enjoy the way I look? But oh wait, some places allow you a mustache, yeah cause thats really cool to have in 2013. I'm just venting, what are some of your other thoughts/experiences with this?

But I don't look like a hobo, I trim my beard every two days. Yeah I prob spent more than I should have, but I have a decently expensive shaver and can even it out very well. Not to mention, make all the lines crisp. So when I say beard, I mean a very well groomed beard. Not a Gerard Butler 300 one XD. I do have a landscaping job lined up where I'll be fine, I'd just rather look for something else just in case. Hydra did make me laugh, seeing as I worked at McDonalds 2 years ago sporting the occasional porno stache.

Actually I work for McDonalds. All we can grow is a "well trimmed mustache" or "sideburns not extending below the ears." I hate it so much. All I want in this world is a decent pair of mutton chops.

1.) Why the **** are beards suddenly all the rage? Seriously, everybody has them right now.

2.) Mustaches will always look cooler than beards.

Sideburns not going below the ears? You can grow some righteous sideburns with that. I mean, that's like almost 2 inches more sideburn for me.

Edit: Ok, just a little more than an inch I guess

Unless you're a goddamn lumberjack, you have no business growing a beard, you scrawny hipster douchebags.

What if you are a musician (jazz or bluegrass), a lumberjack, or a male pornstar?
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

Thats getting stereotypical, yeah I'm a musician who has a well trimmed beard, but I was an athlete for many years before. I still workout and goto the gym. The only hipster thing about me that you could even remotely argue, is my trimmed beard.

It's not about your boss being a **** to you personally.

It's probably about ~> people in general have some connotation with facial hair ~> many think it's "bad" in many ways (poor hygiene, criminal things, homeless guy, Hitler, etc)

So the boss-guy probably wants lot's of costumers. Costumers are dumb.

Aside from feeling slightly badass, I feel more comfortable in my own skin. As well as, in my overall appearance. It is true that some bosses do it to get more customers, so **** customers. I wish all customers could be cool about it, or like the musicians on UG who seem to get the idea. I honestly think mustaches look cool, I'm just trying to attract women and I've been told I look better with a beard coincidentally. The only women I could attract with a mustache are hipster chicks who will just tell me the music I like is generic and crappy. Aw shit now I just stereotyped...

Back int day I got suspended from school like 10000 times just for having long hair. It was bullshit and I do agree with you TS, but it isn't going to change any time soon unfortunately.


Luckily I'm in a line of work that will never require me to cut my hair or shave

Honestly that does sound like a crappy thing to have to deal with. But to everyone telling me to deal with it. I have been, and have every time I get a job, and will continue to do so. I'm not picky about work, and have had a variety of jobs. It def wont change anytime soon, but I target jobs that will allow me to have my trimmed beard, usually I take a job and search for more suitable ones while at the other.

Aye, it's grand. I work as an electronic engineer, and nobody at work cares about your hair, facial or otherwise.

So I get to keep my luxuriant long locks and bushy sideburns.

I'm sure you can appreciate that most people in their sane minds would ever let those kinds of thoughts come to light. I know your were just joking, cause I couldn't possibly believe that you would actually think I would make that known.

I can't have more than a well trimmed mustache. It's something to do with gas masks and I hear sarin gas sucks so I'm cool with it.

I work for a electric company and their only requirements is that your hair and facial hair is clean and near. Color, style, lenght etc doesn't matter as long as it looks clean. I even rocked a fat mullet for a few weeks when I cut my hair last spring and my bosses just thought it was funny.
