Shaved beard hair. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of beard stubble on a man's face. The hairs (long, thin) are embedded in skin (pink). They are cleanly cut, and have regrown after being shaved. Their short length would appear as stubble (a "five o'clock shadow"). A shave using a razor results in the hair ends being this cleanly cut. Magnification: unknown.
