Get to know the culture, especially the business culture, I see you already had a start by googling German businessmen. Well, you know the saying “When in Rome…” You don’t want to say years from now”i could have worked for this company, but I wanted to keep my beard more than I wanted to get the job, so there.” In non-verbal communication facial hair on a man mean that there’s something he’s hiding, something he’s not disclosing, a reason to be suspicious of him, his skills, his intentions. It isn’t necessarily that you have those traits, it’s how people perceive you. There are 2 types of brands which provide grooming products for beards and mooch, Happily unmarried and Beardo. Products of both brands are nice to use. Why don’t you try beardo’s cream. It is a good non sticky cream that has a slight fragnance to it too. From a woman’s point of view, I am 63 and married 45 years to a bearded man. Very few times has he shaved since he was a man child. I learned that he was not comfortable shaving his face any more than I was with my legs. Shaving can hurt or just be uncomfortable. I understand that and consider his preference part of who he is. I actually enjoy the changes it has made in his appearance over the years. Young men often experiment with their most obvious male attribute. They know it is one of the 1st things everyone is aware of at introduction. As they age and their beards mature I believe it adds charactor to a man both visually and mentally. It has little purpose but to keep a neck warm or attact females, I think men understand that.
My husband has always kept it well groomed, no more than an inch long, typically less. I think of it as a natural human male enhancement, however it began. For me, this unique human attribute is attractive when groomed and unattractive when left to grow carelessly. Long and well groomed can be attractive, but it is not my preference. As long as I can recall, even as a girl, I have loved the older male beard as it changes. I feel it is especially attractive with a variety of color indicating some age. My father never grew a beard, nor my uncles or grandfather, so I don’t know why I find the attraction. It is certainly enjoyable to me to see a man grow a beard- thick or somewhat sparse, artistically manipulated or clearly a work in progress. Stubble, not so much. After shampoo use a conditioner, that is even nicer. Use a good grooming brush and beard oil for the shine. It’s simply masculine and yet an affectation- there is a mystique about why men grow beards and how they groom a unique facial feature. It makes me feel like a “manly man” to shave everyday. Seriously, there is nothing really that I love about my beard. After 48 years of shaving, it has become a bit of a drag knowing that every morning you have to face yourself in the mirror and scrape hair from your face. Why not stop shaving and grow a beard? Then you have to enter the realm of additional grooming to keep it looking well. It is easier to shave.
