The lower face of a man sporting designer stubble

Designer stubble is a facial hair style which consists of short and groomed facial hair. Initially made popular in the 1980s by singer George Michael[1] and actor Don Johnson,[2] the style later regained popularity after being worn by actor Tom Cruise in the 2000s and singers Craig David and Jason Derulo in the 2010s.[3] Several companies now manufacture beard trimmers designed specifically to maintain the designer stubble look.[4] Typically created by trimming the beard to a length of 1–3mm, designer stubble is distinct from a five o'clock shadow, which is the longer and less groomed style seen when the stubble starts to become a full beard.[5]
