So…my latest hero has been tortured to near death and has had four weeks holed up in a villa in Spain while he recovers. He hasn’t had time for a haircut, but less a shave. I’m not usually a fan of facial hair on a guy, but in this case…it’s inevitable.
Yea, he’s feeling good enough to shave, but as he’s loving the scraggly look (it will make a good disguise), I can’t justify having him whip out his Bic right now. (That sounds so dirty!)
I’ve never written a hero with facial hair before. Okay, Frankie (from my Dirty books) wears a VERY thin mustache in Dirty Little Lies. But otherwise, my men are clean-shaven. So I had to dig deep to get some inspiration.
I settled on Robert Downey, Jr. (Rwarh.)
What about you? Like your guys scruffy or clean-shaven? And if scruffy…who is your ultimate bearded man?
