For the first half of the 1990’s, facial hair was not very popular. Most actors in movies played roles with clean shaven faces, but later the goatee made a quick comeback with the ushering in of boy bands. Full beards were not very popular in the 90’s. Instead, the look was more trimmed up mustaches with some chin whiskers. That was quickly halted when the music scene turned grunge, and the new look was stubble. You should be able to see some similarities in each photo.

This guy deserves an award. He was one generation soon for sporting a full on lumber sexual beard. Plaid shirts and beards….he really was before his time.
