We talking face or nether regions. I'm kinda digging the bald look these days.

I've been "participating continuously" since 1994.

I've had a beard for so long, I'm not sure anyone would recognize me without it. lol

No, I'd feel too weird coming to work every day not being clean shaven.

No. Job doesn't allow it and unshaven neckbeards are just awful.

I aint shaved yet, but thats more coincidence than anything.
Suppose I could do it, but I'd have to trim the neck. I am not a hipster child.

I have to shave my neck. After 2 maybe 3 days it just looks and feels awful so I bust out the hot towel, shaving cream, and a razor.
I've had a beard for about 2 years now. My youngest son wanted to know what I would look like with "winter whiskers" so I grew it out and liked the way it looked so I've kept it.

Started toward the end of October, unfortunately had to give it a solid trim because of a work thing.

It drives me nuts to fully commit to this so I just generally go a week without shaving and shave on Sunday before going back to work on Monday. Rinse/repeat. And yeah I do make sure to shave my neck to some degree. It doesn't get too crazy but I do it for myself more than anything as it cuts back on the itching.

I'm in. I did it last year for the first time, doing it again this year. I already have a red pedo stache going on right now.

Also the key is the mustache, I shave everything else. I can tolerate the mustache but even one day without shaving at all and I get the full neck beard going on and it's very itchy.

I'm in for the first time this year. I've never let my beard grow before so I'm kinda anxious to see what i end up with.

Isn't there some way that no shave November is done for charity? I thought I remembered it being done for a charity on here last year.

It's done to raise awareness of mens health issues.

Mine is getting there. Since it's red it's harder to see though.

I'm participating, I can't grow facial hair worth a shit but it'll be an interesting experiment to see if I can go a full month. Just growing a stache.

Bah...I started late in the "wild and wooly" month of Septembeard, which is followed by:
Octobeard
Novembeard
Decembeard
Januhairy
Februhairy


Then, MAYBE I'll shave in March.

"Movember" is for those who only grow moustaches...
