I'm growing a beard for the next week, possibly the next month. I've never had one before so it's going to be very odd. More info about why here: http://www.matazone.co.uk/blog/?p=336

Anyway, if there's anyone else who's never had a beard, do you fancy joining in with the beard experiment? We can all post pictures in a while of the before and after states. smile.gif

Hmmm, I had a close shave this morning, I'd be starting from scratch, I might join you on this one. I've tried for the goatee a couple of years back... ...which didn't really work, and would have to think of something to say but sounds like it could be fun.
...wonder what Ryn'd say wink.gif

Upside: Fun, challlenge, comparing progress pics biggrin.gif
Downside: I go ginger, Ryn points and laughs calling me Chewbacker, did I mention I'd go ginger?.?.. blink.gif

Aah, how I wish I was able to grow beardy. Unfortunately my chin was not blessed with stubble. I may still join you on this though. Maybe by rubbing my chin a lot it will awaken the hair waiting to grow.

That's how I'll look all the time when I get my PhD. I think it's the law. I met a professor in the casting queue and he looked very much like that!

That's Freud isn't it?

I started growing/maintaining my goatee since Thanksgiving (Late November). It took three months to get any kind of substantial growth that was noticeable as a beard and not just scruff. >: }~ I don't plan to get rid of it anytime soon so I'll jump on the facial hair preservation boat. smile.gif

While women are welcome to join in, I suspect that for reasons of feminine aesthetics it might be best if they leave this to the men!

FP, I wouldn't have been able to grow a beard when I was twenty. I was a very late developer in that regard, which I liked because I didn't have to shave so often smile.gif

What about if day by day I transferred a tiny piece of head hair from my head to my chin with superglue? I will have the bushiest beard of all!

Whilst what is on my chin and face does not really qualify as a beard, it still causes complaints of scruffiness and also apparently annoyance when I sit and fiddle with it whilst I'm thinking. For these reasons I am compelled to shave it all off and I am out of this before it has begun.

Oh and Emma, if you want I'll send you mine to stick on your chin, your face is smaller than mine so you'd get a better coverage.

I'd join the experiment but I get the impression that'd involve starting again from scratch?

I'll watch for updates, but I couldn't grow a beard even if I tried really hard, given that I'm a girl with almost invisible blonde facial hair.

I've had a goatee on-and-off since I was sixteen and it's worked out well.

On two occasions, I had what my friends called a gnar lumberjack beard. I learned that there really are both ups and downs. For me, I liked how I got compliments and it really looked good (most dudes my age couldn't grow a descent beard to sake their lives). Unfortunately, though, it itched, my girlfriend didn't like it and it looks like Hell with makeup.

In any case, I hope yours works out, as opposed to looking like the chin growth of a thirteen-year-old (like my brother's) wink.gif tongue.gif

LOL..I get the feeling this experiemnt is going to make almost everone look hilarious! I'll join in by taking string, and glueing it to my face from now until the 29th of April.Can't keep it on til the 31st cause there's a concert on the 30th, and I don't want to make a complete idiot of myself. It'll be some good laughs in school though!

I'm going to leave beard growing to the guys, since I don't particularly want to glue anything to my face.

Team Estrogen could do what Froggy did last year and grow our pit hair. tongue.gif I don't think I could handle that, though. Legs, yes....armpits, no.

Girls, if you want to grow a beard, just take some testosterone. Of course, the 'side-effects' may be slightly... un-temporary. And by that I mean permenant.

No. You are hereby grounded from glue. tongue.gif

You can't "grow" anything by just sticking it onto your face.

I'm still trying to picture Mata with a beard, and failing miserably. I just can't imagine it!
