    Hi everyone!

    So I know we've got some folks who sport facial hair on the forum. Beards, moustaches, goatees...full on facial hair. Here's a space where we can talk about our facial...how long you've had it, how you maintain it, etc.

    Feel free to post pictures of your look...as much as there is a place for the clean shaven, facial hair is where it's at!

    Nice. How long did it take you to grow yours?

    A couple of months, but I've had it for a couple of years now. This is about as long as I can let it get without looking too scraggly so I trim it occasionally to keep it at this length or a little shorter. I want to start to apply beard oils / balms more regularly on it.

    Yeah, that's the challenge of walking that fine line of scraggly vs a thick, full beard. I want to try some of those oils though. Is there a certain brand you're looking at or have used?

    I want to try the Bearded ******* line of oils and balms. A little pricy for me, but has great reviews and I like what I have read about the company and their back story and they have some interesting scents in their lineup.

    Well I have stubble fairly consistently. I shave like once every week or so. My dad has always had a full on beard for as long as I can remember and while I do like the look of a beard I don't like the feeling of having one. My brother also alternates between having a beard and being clean shaven.

    As far as beard oils go I haven't ever really looked into them properly, the idea seems a bit alien to me in my ignorance.

    The beard oils is interesting indeed.

    Because of how my hair grows, to have that naturally full look, I need to grow it out. In order for some to keep it shorter yet looking full, I've seen them have the barber use dyes to paint over the spots in the beard where the skin tone will show. So from a healthy distance, there's that full, even look.

    So, do people make changes to their beard? Or is it more sticking to one style?

    For me, something I keep it very thick and sometimes I'll go for that thin look.

    I grew back the 'stache and goatee combo about 2 weeks ago after a long absence. Geez, where'd all that grey come from? No way I can let it grow out like I had it before, I'll look like Moses at the end of the Ten Commandments.

    That's the challenge I have, as my grays are peeking out too. I've always had them from my teens...it's not at a point where I'd dye anything yet, but the few I have stand out like a more thumb...

    When I was in my early 20s I had a couple in my mustache and I used beeswax to cover them up. It wasn't too bad.

    I like mine too much. Other people don't things, so I usually get offers to have them remvoed.

    Exactly what I said.

    My dad told me it's genetics with me getting the grays early; that's why he keeps his goatee trimmed on the low side.
