- It's not obvious that they are.
- I don't even know what "completely" and "facial hair" are supposed to mean when used together in this context. Does "facial hair" as people use the word normally include the follicle, the portion below the skin? If it does then "complete" removal would at least require a depilatory.
- Can I be clean-shaven if I don't have a beard or mustache, but haven't shaven for three days? What if I did a bad job shaving? This seems like a case for sharpening the definitions by RfV's. Keep, cite and revise, or RfV. DCDuring TALK 13:51, 29 March 2014 (UTC)
- Also there are plenty of hits for "clean-shaven leg", "clean-shaven chest" and other formulations. This is not unique to the face. Since this request has lingered since March of last year (which is literally forever in Internet years), I'm boldly combining both defs to say Having had hair completely removed, especially facial hair that is freshly shaved. If somebody really wants to make this two defs as AHD says, I guess that wouldn't bother me, but I don't think it's really ideal -- no one really uses "clean-shaven" to mean "having recently shaved" unless they also mean "shaved completely, usually the face", which is also a core part of the other def.
