Clean-shavens fall into the "questionable" category. No facial hair cues, so you could be dealing with extreme trustworthiness or near-disastrous. In such cases you have to inspect the coiffure, teeth & clothes. And of course, behavior tends to figure in.

The Jailbird beard was left out -- or is that stubbly growth stuff not considered an actual beard? It seems like it should be, since some men cultivate it and always have it. I know it's wildly popular, and can give even the mild-mannered a dangerous look, and often the prettiest girls have an alarming tendency to go for bad boys, but the shaved-head, tattooed, three-day-growth look is getting tiresome. It's hard to tell the faux convicts from the real convicts anymore.
