When was the last time you got all muddled up deciding whether to keep the beard or shave it off? Not too long ago, right? It is so because all of the masculinity boils down to making this decision at the end of every week/month/year (to each, his own).
Well, studies suggest having a good amount of facial hair actually helps the skin maintain a healthy balance of bacteria. Moreover, popular opinions from the opposite sex too claim that bearded men are naturally sexier and more attractive than the average clean-shaven Joe.
It is even argued that beards make men's face look stronger and more masculine as opposed to views citing the only attribute which matters is bone structure. Either way, the importance of a beard in a man's life cannot be undermined.
Men embrace their facial hair as if it is god's single most aesthetic trait given to them. However, how it looks, at the end of the day, is your personal prerogative. The onus to maintain a healthy and handsome beard lies on oneself.

It's like this guy shed off 4-5 years of ass-sloggin' in a quick trim. He has definitely lost a bet. Is he fan or something? I JUST KNEW IT. His team lost :P
This is how you work up different stages in life.
BEFORE SHAVING - "I do not want make money. Let me just go around the world."
AFTER SHAVING - "Find me a good job. I have a face worth a hundred dollars, at least."
I, personally, for one, wouldn't mind giving up on job interviews if I had a track record of lifting as many skirts as this dude's beard
