It's an argument I've been having with my close gal pals lately. Does facial hair really matter on a guy? And, why does it elicit the intense emotional reactions everyone (including myself) seem to have towards it. Personally, I'm a huge fan, but not everyone shares in my beard affinity and that's OK. But now, our lord and savior, Scott Disick has aptly brought the very issue to the forefront: Beard or no beard? That is the question, but is there any easy answer?I have it on good authority with the big guy (Shakespeare, obvs) that Hamlet would probably more easily say no, as do I. It takes some serious deliberation and much dedication to come up with an educated solution to one of pop culture's current debates. Beards are most definitely "in," but are they technically "in" for everybody?

Eh, not really. But those growing their beards are certainly valiant in their efforts. After all, if you don't try how the hell will you ever know? I bet some beard gods are just walking around fresh faced, too scared to strut their stuff and thus denying the world of their hairy greatness. As for those who've dared to grow out their facial hair let's put it to the test. Beard or no beard or some gentle scruff?
