    I have long sideburns. I can't pull off a mullet because I started balding at 16.

    I have had a mustache since I was in my 20's. Mostly to look older since I have always had a baby face. I was carded (even with my stache) into my 30's. I have had a goatee on and off. But I have had one for the last 8 years or so other than shaving it off once in a while, then deciding to grow it right back.

    Starting to go gray now.

Somehow the Grunge look cross-pollinated into other music cultures, so's that by the mid to late 90s even country music pop stars were wearing the goatee. It went from being pretty much non-existent to like the facial hair style in the US in the span of a decade.

    I'm beginning to see something like that with beards now too. When I started growing mine out earlier this fall, I didn't realize how popular it had become. But once I did, I noticed that a lot of people are growing them now. I can't help but think that part of that has to do with that reality show Duck Dynasty (I've never seen it, but hear that all the people in it have beards). And there's another reality show, I think its called Garage Monkey, or something, and one of the guys there has a really long beard too (which I think is pretty epic looking). Kind of weird how these things go in phases. Wondering if long sideburns and the mullet will come back into fashion anytime soon.
    Beards have always (at least for the last 45 years since I arrived) been common in Alaska. Probably in part harkening back to the early days, and lots (well not by outside standards) live where it is not so easy to deal with shaving.

    Yeah. Seems like the Alaskan frontiersman way. Probably has a lot to do with the cold too I imagine.

    I can't grow a beard. Does that mean I'm not allowed to post in here?

    But I totally would if I could. I just can't.

    Can you grow anything? If so, maybe you could do like a beard comb over.

    I can, but...no. I don't think so, no. If a man can't grow a beard, he should just accept it and move on with his life, even if it's difficult.
