Ladies, Do We Still Like Facial Hair On Men?

I love facial hair on men. I mean, I can’t tell you in words how much I love it. But it depends though. There’s a line between hot and Father Christmas (Santa Clause for the Americans). Facial hair on a man just makes him some kind of rugged. Strangely though, I have never dated anyone with facial hair *pauses and thinks about it* Yup, haven’t dated anyone with facial hair.

Igwe had one small collection of hair under his jaw which we – for lack of a better word – referred to as his goatee. The way he always used to touch it and pull it was just funny, and when he said things like, “I need to shave” in all seriousness, that was pure entertainment. That hair was small, but I loved it anyway. Now, he has gone and shaved off the small hair I was praying for.

I have told him to let the hair grow back – however many years it may take – but he insists that I’m only saying that because I want to make fun of his hair and count them for him. In my defense, I have never attempted to count his hair. I have only said that he has just two strands of hair. This is totally different from counting it. Besides, records will show that he has a little more than 2 strands.

My dad doesn’t have facial hair either. I have seen him with facial hair in his old pictures – before the afo beer (beer gut) and bald, shiny head. I’d probably burst out laughing now if he decides to grow his facial hair. Daddy, please don’t do that. Another thing my dad has is very yellow, hairless legs. So does my mom, too, which explains the lack of bountiful hair on any part of my body. Let your imagination roam.

Igwe doesn’t have much hair on his body either. So now we can guesstimate our children’s bodily hair. Just to be clear, I’m not saying that any ol’ kind of hair is good, but there’s just a certain amount and look that is catchy. I’ll explain with the pictures of some popular male celebrities. Ladies, let’s gawk. We are allowed.

    Vera ooo, Vera!!! You haff come again ooo! Which one is you don’t count his hairs but he has two strands?? I went to primary school na, na 123 jorr! I love a lil facial hair- nicely trimmed- on men, you know, eye candy. But I’m not sure if I’ll enjoy it on MY man. We’ll have to meet first…lol.They say seeing is believing :D

      Worship, that is perfectly understandable. It’s like the way I enjoy seeing some men with long hair, but I will never, ever want it on my man. Per Igwe’s hair, biko leave me alone oh! Lol.

  2. says

    Eh, i think the amount and type of facial hair varies from face to face. There are some people who look ridiculous with any type of facial hair and some that look crazy when they have none.

    As per who can get what…All the chocolate on the list plus Colin Farrell. I saw part of his sextape lol. He’s obviously down with the swirl and um has some talent from what i could tell so i think i got a shot ;)

    Well.. I’ve been told by the SO that the hair tickles when stuff is going down (pun intended)… so although nice to look at, has its downsides. Verastic, any experience with this? *straight face*

    • says

      Looool. Quaggar, I have no experience with that because like I said Igwe only has 2 hairs. Besides, ehm, what “going down” are you talking about? Abeg oh! I do not that kind of thing (not that I know what you are talking about).

    there was a study or something sha that proved that men with facial hair are considered more attractive.

    I like guys with facial hair. add physique à la Shia LaBeouf and Jay Baruchel (Sorcerer’s Apprentice) and you have me.

      Deaduranmilade, there’s a study for that really? Well, I’m not surprised at all. I think it’s very sexy to have some hair. You don’t have to look like Santa (cause that will be very unsexy), but a little bit is always nice.

    Vera, your readers like good thing too much! Hian!!

    Love me a man with facial hair. There’s something very sexy about it. And the way it tickles when… ;-)

    That being said, Colin Farrell looks too yummy! Like strawberry cheese cake or like succulent pizza :-D

    • says

      MsDawari …. all I read was, “And the way it tickles when… ;-)”

      When what oooohhhhh???? Please, my readers and I do not know what you’re talking about!

      And of course, we like good things. Very, very good things :D
