The answer is simple: you are attractive to certain women.

Unfortunately, some people smirk at others. I'm guessing that the OP wants to make sure that women aren't laughing at his appearance.

I don't know. I don't smile at men, nor exchange pleasantries with them in the street, anymore, in order to protect my boundaries (the men I came across, seemed to think that just because I said, "Hello," or acknowledged them politely, that that meant I'd be willing to have sex with them or solve their personal problems).

Since it isn't too common to see men with curly hair and full facial hair these days, perhaps, they're surprised and delighted by your appearance because you remind them of a hippie (ie: someone from their childhood).

I think they might be holding in a laugh when they look at you.

Don't think so. I think this hairless look for men is awful. Adding in the unshaven- three days growth of beard- look is doubly awful.

I'm scowling at you through the screen.

Wait - maybe it's more of a grimace than a scowl .......
