It's officially Movember which means fellas will be forsaking the clean shaven look and growing it all out.
This got us thinking about dudes with facial hair, namely beards, because there is definitely something suave, sexy and a teeny bit hipster about a guy who is the proud owner and practiced groomer of one.
We caught up with 10 dapper gents in our office to get the low-down on their beards, how they look after them AND if they really do attract attention. The really good kind...
"My beard? I've had it since forever - or stubble at least. Now I like a full beard because it's fashionable - at first I wasn't sure but then...it grew on me!
"I've had a beard ever since I was able to grow a full one. When they became really fashionable I was like 'YEAH I'm going to rock the beard!'
Now a full beard definitely compensates for the hair on my head. I use Beardsley
Ultra Conditioner for Beards from Carter and Bon to tame the frizz and a Philips face hoover.
"I've had a beard since I was about 17. Without it I literally look like a five year-old.
It's definitely a conversation starter with blokes and women - and yes my girlfriend likes it. In fact she shouts at me when I shave.
"I've had a beard for two years, mainly because when I'm clean shaven I look about 21. The beard adds a good five years at least.
"I've had a beard for ages and it's grown thicker and more progressively over the years.
"I've had my beard for six years now and I've never shaved it off. It allowed me to really embrace my image (and the ginge!) and it makes me feel more masculine too.
"I stopped shaving at about 22 and started wearing a full beard - mainly because I'm lazy and it saved me shaving every morning. PLUS it gives the illusion of a jaw line and I love that.
Saif Uddowlla, Video Engineer at Be On:
"I've had a full beard since I was about 23, mainly because I'm too lazy to shave so often and then it became a big trend. I'm used to it now - it's something to play with.
"I first styled a goatee when I was 19 after seeing Pirates of the Caribbean and thinking the guys looked really manly. So I gave the ruggish look a try and it just stuck - it's part of my personality. I trim about it about two to three times a week."
