Facial Hair

Males of all races except Gor'Togs, Prydaen, and S'Kra Mur can grow facial hair. (Female Dwarves also have facial hair.) The appearance and maximum length of facial hair varies slightly between races.

Facial hair grows naturally over time in DragonRealms and can be removed, shortened, or styled. The basic tools are the razor and clippers, which are sold at general stores. Empaths can also shift the length of facial hair and even permanently remove it. Warrior mages may use the Burning Touch cantrip. Gelfurjaal unguent can also be used to permanently remove facial hair, or to temporarily prevent facial hair growth between deaths.

Stubble

Facial hair initially grows as stubble. At the stubble stage, the noun is 'stubble', and mustache or beard will not work. From fully clean-shaven, stubble grows in 'on your face' and you do not at this point have a separate beard and mustache. With facial stubble, you cannot use the <lip> or <chin> arguments for Remove to shave only one. If you shave off your mustache or beard it will grow in as separate stubble on your chin and upper lip.

It does not seem possible to cut down to stubble with clippers, this stage can only be reached by growth.

Some beard interactions are unique to stubble. LICK, PEER, RUB, SCRATCH, TAP, TURN, and WAVE function the same as with a beard.

BRUSH STUBBLE (while holding a brush or comb)
You See: You rake your <brush> over your stubbled cheeks, not really accomplishing much, but it does reduce the itching somewhat.
Others See: <Player> rakes a hairbrush over <their> stubbled cheeks, not really accomplishing much, but it seems to make <them> feel better.

Others See: <Player> scrubs at <their> stubbled cheeks with an intense determination.

EAT STUBBLE
