    Yes. Stubble on the face leads you to believe that the person has not shaved for a day or so. Redirect Notice

    A beard is properly hairy. Redirect Notice

    'Designer stubble' is the fashionably unshaven look: Redirect Notice

    Yes. A beard is the hair that grows on the lower half of a human's face with the exception of the hair that grows between the nose and the mouth (which is a mustache/moustache).

    Stubble is the hair that is regrowing after shaving, regardless of location.

    PS: 5jj was quicker, but since I'm not saying exactly the same as he is, I'm not deleting the post.
