Hello all members! In the following link, between "a bushy beard" and "a dense beard", which phrase is more commonly used in spoken English?

"Thick" or "bushy", but not "dense".

Sometimes "a full beard", but this tends to mean long and largely unstyled (as opposed to a goatee, for instance). A "full set" is sometimes used to refer to a full beard and moustache (rather than just a moustache or just a beard - i.e. a "chinstrap beard").

Steve if you are going to have a beard then don't be a woos. Try one of these. These are MEN's beards. I have had a beard for decades and my wife will never let me shave it off.

Woz - your link made me happy that my husband isn't able to grow much facial hair. :)

I had to look up your word "woos" before suggesting you had misspelled "wuss." Good thing I did - regional differences are fun. :)
