Will a full beard draw unwanted attention or stereotypes?

Although a full beard continues to mean a lot of things to Turks, on a foreigner, it won't really imply too much. At the worst, you'll have people ask if you are muslim or call you "Ali Baba." That said, if you are dark-complexioned or could be mistaken for a Turk or Arab, a full beard may suggest that you are very religious.
