I have the same Brad Pitt facial hair look, only darker and trimmed much shorter, and I have it for one reason and one reason only - the wife says it's sexy. If she likes it, it stays.

I don't know if any guys can relate to this is that when I don't shave everyday/ or at it's smallest growth, when I do shave (especially if the razors a bit dull) somehow I get gaps. Where hair used to be might get a gap. I somehow don't get this when I shave everyday. Some say it's from stress, but I find I get it more when I shave after a few days of not shaving. It's almost as if the shaver pulls/ yanks the hair out in some spots and it's then bald in a small little spot for a few weeks/ sometimes months. Anyone else have this issue? Not even sure if I explained it right.
I have no idea what you are talking about.

I've had thick, full facial hair since a teenager, and I've shaved a week old beard with a dull razor. I've never had gaps. I actually find it hard to believe that a razor can cause bald spots.

He might want to check this out and go get tested. I've heard of it before.

I don't get it on my head, I just get very small areas in my shave sometimes. I've noticed it in others too. And when I was in college years ago, I asked someone else about it and he said that it happened to him too. Usually takes about three months for it to grow back. Mine you can hardly see. It's it my mustache part. I've talked to doctors about it and they said stress can cause it. It's not that serious, certainly not to the point in which you have shown..

They call this when it's on your face.


The disease may be limited only to the beard, in which case it is called Alopecia areata barbae


Yours could be something else.

Movember is entirely a thing.
I heard about it last year on Art of Manliness. one of my favorite websites. (not just for men.) But they did a thing about it, suddenly it seems big.
