    So I'm growing a beard right now as I have a couple times in the past, and I'm just curious what looks better. All I have is random facebook pics of each so bear with me.

    Goatee:

    hmm i think your goatee goes too wide in the chin area
    squaring it up a bit might look better

    Your goatee is too wide, it looks...odd. Either go with the beard or try to get the 'tee neater.

    Man, i could never grow that. Maybe in 30 years.

    Pics of being 100% clean?
    Otherwise beard is cool as long as it doesn't get out of control and it stays trimmed.

    the goatee looks a little round as is, but squared off a little it may look a bit different/better.

    I like the beard though, you look really casual and laid back

    College is over bro. Lose the lame facial hair that is desperately trying to hide your double chin ASAP.

    Chinstrap with goatee ftw. I didn't shave for 4 days to get a little length and then sculpted this because I wanted to see how it'd look. Already had goatee.

    Not threadcraping, but do you smoke?
    If you got some sort of teeth whitening done, your smile would POP.

    Nah, I do drink a fair amount of soda though, probably 1-2 a day. Perhaps I should invest in some crest white strips [​IMG]

    I've actually never even thought about trying this. Perhaps I'll give it a shot for like a week and just continue with the beard if I don't like it.

    after looking at the pics again, I came to this conclusion.

    The goatee makes you look older.
    The beard makes you look like a college student.
    And the clean shaven look makes you appear, well, younger. Which isn't a bad thing. :bigthumb:
