I recently interviewed Nikki Reed at an event called Kiss and Tell for Gillette. Gillette was interested in knowing if men and women prefer kisses with a smooth shaven face or some stubble. Before I get to the results of that survey, I want to talk to you about the adorable, hardworking and talented person that is Nikki Reed. (She is also a huge fan of HelloGiggles!)
Briefly before the interview we talked about how awesome HelloGiggles is but unfortunately, I couldn’t sit and gush with her about the wonderful HG community for long. I had much more important things to talk to her about, like facial hair, first kisses and also some pretty great advice for women (and men) who are following their passion even when it’s scary.

So, Mustaches seem to often dominate pop culture. It all seems to be very trendy lately. How do you feel about facial hair on men?
I like a man who takes care of himself. So one of the things that I think genuinely attracted me to Paul [McDonald, her husband] was that he really cares about what he looks like and he grooms himself, you know? And so even though I’ve only seen him a few times with a completely clean shaven face, I do appreciate that it’s either shaved or with a full beard and not an in between day and a half-old whiskery thing all the time.
So you prefer a smooth shave?
Yeah! If it was between a smooth shave or stubble, I prefer the smooth shave. But whatever Paul wants to do. I love him.
