Some celebrities like Steven Spielberg are probably not recognized on the streets if they would shave their beard. During formal events, men with beards are regarded as suspicious. Certain categories of men, such as extreme religious, homeless, artists and other free spirits often have a beard to show their informality. Men with either overweight or skinny faces may find that leaving some facial hair disguises their imperfectness. Trimming and regular washings are essential to ensure your friends, remain your friends.
