Shaving one's beard can be a chore, and if you're possessed of delicate skin and the luxury of not shaving daily, you might come to regard it as far worse. Rationalizations are available: the ideal hairless male is a cultural construct, entwined with a fetishism of youth, and so forth; stubble does wonders for the jawline, the cheekbone. And so forth.
The answer, Budding Bears? Just keep your head-hair short. On a face that isn't perfectly round you can get away with a week's growth of beard or more so long as your head-hair is short as well: the resulting continuity of shape (of expectation) is more forgiving and more quickly forgiven. Once the cap and beard are disconnected in effort and intent, once the sideburns serve to discretize the two regions of growth, the viewer's attention can't help but be drawn to stubble as its own entity. Additionally this holistic approach affords one's intimate partner(s) an opportunity to run caressing hands over a continuous soft growth of hair on, say, the sixth day after a shave. And bosses are less likely to balk at the stubble if it's part of a general approach. What they dislike is the indication of impropriety - but the semiotics of buzz-cuts are different from those of 'standard corporate hair,' and under that regime of signs the semiotic burden of indicating laziness is lifted from stubble and placed onto, for instance, your shoes.
You're going to have to get new shoes, lazy varmint. That you can't escape.
