Stubble on a man's face is the unshaven beard growth that exists for one to three days (or longer, depending on the hair's rate of growth), before it becomes long enough to cover the skin and be considered a full beard. In recent times, electric clippers have rendered stubble growth an easily maintained and fashionable style, as it can lend some men a rugged swarthiness and does not require daily attention. From the late 1920s to the mid-1960s, when a clean-shaven appearance was in vogue in the Western world, it was also known as a five o'clock shadow and a man sporting one was considered to be unattractive, unrefined and even unclean.
