So I've entertained the idea of doing No Shave November. I've never really grown any facial hair besides a doofy mustache in college, but I figured it was time to see what I can do. Here's the thing - I'm 26 and I still can't grow a full beard. I have 3 days' worth of stubble, and it's growing in well around the goatee/sideburn area, but the cheek area in between and the bottom of my chin are pretty sparse.
I'm going out tomorrow night and I'm debating leaving it as-is or shaving it all off. I've heard guys say "If you can grow it, show it", and I've heard that facial hair adds masculine character. But if it's half-assed is it more of a detriment?
Here are some photos for reference:
