I like the coverage you are getting at 13 days... well, that's 2 weeks down and 11 weeks to go.  Is this going to be the beard journey that stays with you a good long while?

What do you mean by 'lining up your beard'?  You could establish a cheek line but I would make if very high.  You could also take up the neckline about 1-2 finger widths.  From your last picture, the centerpoint is below the end points and you want the opposite.  You have a well defined crease between the neck and undercarriage that I see in that last picture... carve it along that line.

I'd probably define the the cheekline by taking away those stray hairs. Defining a beard early on gives it a more intentional and fuller look in my opinion. However, most of the time, the guys on here recommend you wait a while before doing that I think, so it's up to you really. Plenty of videos on YouTube that'll show you how to do it though.

As for my opinion on it... The sides are nice, I'm always envious of the beards with black hairs since mine grows in brown and can be hard to see in some lights. And also, that moustache is gonna be a seriously heavy one if you keep letting it grow. Nice.

Beard on, for sure.  I agree with Spkzy that a well defined cheek line would be good and beyond that... let it all grow out.This is the point at which you tell us how you feel about your beardedness. Is a beard something you think you can handle?  If so, start talking about that so that your mind is clearly single focused.. you want to become bearded in the worst way.

Circle beard with stubble looks hot  Huge circle beard with sides covered will be one sick look.  

Have fun... you have lots of good possibilities.  Your brain and g/f will tell you the beard style you should be sporting now.

With some length, it is possible. Would fit you a lot. I would trim the neck a bit upper.

Yes. It looks hot.  I agree with deadlydonkey that your neckline should be carved just a bit higher... right in the crease between neck and undercarriage.The closeup shot of your front shows really good development coming along and this will enhance that bulked out look you want in the front. Your stache is powerful in the closeup... really starting to bulk out... but in the distant shot, the end points are overpowering the center.  One thing you could try is to brush the sides of the stache straight out to see what that looks like from a distance.  If it looks better or a little more uniform, then consider training it that direction with got2b spiking glue. Don't worry about connectors because you sides have now developed to the connectors and that will give you all the beard you need to connect the stache to the jaw hair.

37 days growth today from clean shave. I really want to reach that 13 week mark and maybe even more. I never have the self discipline to reach it. I might have enough density to have a longer style besides my under neck gap. Opinions?

You have a decent growth. Also I saw the comments in the link. These dolts are scared from facing you, so they use internet instead. How pity for their mental IQ.

Beard is looking great, as always.  Your front look is phenomenol... side look will be just as great when you have a couple more months growth there.

I can think of no reason for you not to sport and be proud of your full beard.  It's just a matter of whether your mental progress is ready for this beard because your physical growing is definitely ready for it.

As to the comments on your imgur thread... I would turn them off.  You come here to get honest opinions from guys you trust... you ask those around you for their thoughts... these are the ones that count.

Absolutely.  You have very heavy coverage in the undercarriage that will give you a Spade style which is long in the front and tapered toward the neck.
Your sides will poof because you have tremendous younger hairs and slower starters ready to give you more side coverage.  All that hair will have no place to go except out as it gets longer.


You must set your mind to move through the 3 month beard and proceed toward 6 months in order to achieve these longer length.  Don't be critical of your beard as it continues to grow... rather, tell yourself in the mirror just how good your beard looks and that you are becoming nicely bearded.  Once you can handle telling yourself how good you have it, then tell those around you.  After a while, you will believe all this and before you know it, your beard will turn into a big and long beard.
