I started growing my winter beard last month. This year is the first year it has fully grown out. After I trimmed it up, I was shocked to see it didn't look half bad.

I'm really proud of this beard. (That's my "Leafy Erickson" costume from two years ago. The chick wasn't supposed to be there.)

I can't grow a beard. My uncle used to call it a "baseball beard" meaning there were 9 (hairs) on each side.

It never fills in, and the hair only grow longer, and never curl. It reminds me of those 16 yr. olds that try to grow a mustache, but end up looking like a rat.

i can't even gor sideburns, because my face hair doesn't meet with my head hairline. I looks like I shaved a gap in between.

She is, and she wasn't talking about her beard.

Thank you for posting that! Over the weekend, a friend sent me a link to the store where you can buy that print, but it didn't really show all of the beards.

That's why I started growing mine on Thanksgiving each year, giving me 4 transition days away from work. It's not much, but it's something.

The only time in the last thirty years I didn't have a beard was in early May because being clean shaven was a requirement if I wanted to be an extra in Public Enemies. I always keep it trimmed short.

I've maintained a full beard for the last few years now and am also curious as to how well the bluebeard product works. Please let know your thoughts! I noticed the beard saver lotion has alcohol in it which I didn't think was a good ingredient to have, but I guess it could depend on the overall product.

There is a Hyneman as well. So is the Mythbusters guy named after a beard type, or did they name the beard after him (and his beard)?

I just shaved my beard as it was getting a bit long.

Although, the past two days I totally was sporting friendly muttonchops just for the hell of it.

I'll keep you posted.

There are some other beard products here that I'm curious about: http://www.beardcareproducts.com/

Maybe when the Bluebeard stuff runs out I'll give some of those products a shot. But considering a little of the Bluebeards seemingly goes a long way, it's going to be a while.

Shaving is a pain in the ass. Women complain about periods, but that's only a few days a month for Christ's sake. If you are going to be clean shaven it's a daily (or for our more hirsute fellows, twice daily) chore. I haven't found an electric razor that does a half decent job (maybe I'm too cheap to buy a decent one), so it has to be a wet shave. I don't grow a full beard - it comes out kind of straggly if I leave it more than a week. But I don't shave either. I let it grow, and trim it every 3 or 4 days with a set of electric clippers. It goes from stubble to short beard, back to stubble again on a 3 or 4 day cycle.

Women do have to shave their legs and pits.
