    Those of you who let them grow, do you do any shaping as it gets fuller, or does it just grow wild?

    Had mine trimmed every month or so at the barbers and tidied up daily myself (moustache and stragglers). Once you get to ‘proper’ beard length things like neckline don’t need doing as its covered anyway.

    Half the folk on here seem to be describing stubble though. Clippers have no place near a beard, scissors only ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I miss my beard

    Iโ€™d suggest that if you either work in Shoreditch or are a regular Crossfitter (in the obsessive sense of the term) then itโ€™s imperative that you keep it.

    Otherwise, get that razor out.

    Very simple approach to beard maintenance here.
    Hair and beard get a #1 all over, then are left to grow until one morning I wake up and there’s a hint that hair may need combing. Then its time to start the cycle again.

    Everyone knows that a beard is worth five kilos on a dead lift. Keep it!

    a good barber is worth their weight in gold and will help with the correct neckline and shape for your mug

    This.

    Best beard trim (to date) from Steve at Barber Barber in Manchester.
    Immediately had folks compliment it out on the street 8)

    Sometimes your naivety/innocence is scary.

    I’ve still no idea what it means.

    It annoyed me when I got lumped in with the bloody hipsters. Had a beard for a long time before it became fashionable. I daresay I’ll have one when they go out of fashion too.

    Remember kids, if you’re Dad hasn’t got a beard you’ve got two mums

    I recently met a mate for the first time in a while. He had a decent beard.

    “How long have you had the beard?” I asked him.

    “We’ve been going out about two years now.” his girlfriend said.

    She’s one to watch! ๐Ÿ™‚

    “We’ve been pretending to be going out about two years now.” his fake girlfriend should have said.

    The less explaining; the better the joke, perchy. You know that!

    Yeah, you’re right. It’s been a long day and I’m really tired.

    ‘Twas funny though. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yup, it grows wild. A combination of hair clippers and nail scissors keeps things ‘under control’.

    But if I’m honest I’m a bit WGAF… ๐Ÿ˜ณ

    Would you like me to explain the “underarm/overarm” reference too? ๐Ÿ˜€

    There’s just no way Cougar should be put in the same sentence as Tony Stark

    Sorry

    On a positive note you’re good with computers so there’s something you have in common. And you both have dark hair. And a mouth…

    Irony Man, perhaps, but you’re no Iron Man.

    I had probably passed my mid 20s before I could grow facial hair resembling a beard so shaving always seemed pretty pointless. Pretty much gave up shaving.
    Had a shave the other year just to see what it was like.

    Im slightly annoyed. Having maintained she doesnt like beards, i emerged a clean shaven surprise from only to be greeted with a downtrodden “oh, well ive been used to it for nearly three years… im not sure…” from Mrs Kryton.

    Gee thanks, im glad i made the effort…

    In this weather? Certainly not.

    They are still the male fashion accessory of the moment, so if you like to be a sheep then keep

    I find less interest still in the extra mental energy required to avoid ‘being a sheep’ (ie still keeping up with fashion in order to avoid it) so my facial hair (or lack of) remains entirely subject to my whims/the weather/available charging points. It’s so much easier, give it a try? And don’t get too attached to hair today, you may find it gone tomorrow ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Ah, the benefits of being a certain age ๐Ÿ˜

    *. Afterthought – but somehow I will not do Teva sandals or ilk. Dunno why, they make me break out in a cold sweat.
