Five O'clock Shadow

Hi there everybody! I'm back with a new word to be defined in Spanish. The word or words are, "five o'clock shadow" on his face.

I found it guys in the English Idioms section. It says, "barba de dos dias".
If you know of anything else besides this, I welcome it. Thank you all.

Just asked my native Spanish speaking wife about this one. She has no clue.
Algo como: La barba que crece en el transcurso del dia. Well that explains it
but that's not the expression or idiom for it.

O "barba apenas crecidita"...

Hasta creo que se podría decir "una sombra de barba" "la sombra de una barba"...

Aunque lo mejor quizá sea "barba de media tarde"...

Robin, no es lo mismo...
Cuando yo tengo barba de dos días parezco un terrorista... la de media tarde es sólo una "sombra"...
