Another Reason to Shave
Contrary to what many guys out there think, two day's worth of growth does not make you look sporty. It makes you look sloppy. The in-between stage of any two looks almost never works, including facial hair. Same principle for growing out your scalp's mane. Those few months between short and long are just begging for a barber's attention, and you always have to explain to people that you've decided to grow your hair out. The only time I ever consistently wore a hat was during such a time.
Granted, some guys can pull this look off, but until you change your name to Tom Brady you should probably just do the socially acceptable thing (especially if you have one of those job things) and shave. If you need further convincing just watch that video again. See how happy he looks one second, then utterly destroyed the next? Yeah, that's gotta suck.
If only he would've used a Bic disposable before that hot date.
