A man's beard in the designer stubble style.

Designer stubble is a short growth of a man's facial hair that became popular in the 1980s. This style was worn and reinvented by singer George Michael[1] and actor Don Johnson and was adopted by many others.[2] Several companies manufacture beard trimmers designed to maintain designer stubble,[3] which is also known as "five o'clock shadow".[4]

The style made a comeback in 2010s due to its popularization by David Beckham, George Clooney, and Daniel Tosh.
