Several years ago, Discovery, the print magazine, and Discovery, the cable channel, did a piece on how Jesus MIGHT HAVE LOOKED IN REAL LIFE (assuming he really existed). They eventually came up with the visage of a Semitic man, somewhat similar to actor Alan Arkin, but a little more Jewish. And he might not have had a beard. Saul of Tarsus claimed to have seen Jesus personally and later wrote (or some later scribe wrote down) that it's unnatural for a man to have long hair. (He wasn't fond of short hair on women, so were he living today, would probably NOT be a fan of Rachel Maddow.
