not hot. if i see a good looking guy with a beard, i usually am thinking hed be better looking sans beard. my ex grew a beard for a over a year, and it looked good, but i prefer without. and the whole hipster beard thing is waayy beyond me. (handlebar mustaches, etc) i tend to think its more an ironic sorta “quick…take a photo of how ridiculous i look” kinda thing than its a life choice. ha!
