Well, it's apparent now that you are capable of a longer full beard... but don't worry, you will see for yourself soon enough that it's possible.Sling wrote:
I’m aiming for a longer full beard if that’s possible(which I’m assuming will be more apparent at the 3 month mark).
If you read any of my posts to guys who have beards with massive coverage such as yours, you would know by now that I really like a Spade beard style for younger guys who want to sport longer beards. This style would fit you well because it needs a very long goatee and the hair that hangs below the jaw is tapered from very long in the front to short at the neck. This hairline actually looks hot when it is steep enough to be parallel to the cheek line. It's especially good for you because if you leave your beard long toward the neck, it going to overpower the sides; whereas putting the length out front will let the sides hold their own. I mention this now because if you like this Spade style, then you will want your new barber to start tapering the undercarriage. He is not to touch the goatee but ask him to taper the length toward the neck. On each successive trim, he will continue to taper but the undercarriage becomes steeper because he never takes any length off the goatee whereas length at the neck is still short.
Now, I don't know what to tell you about your stache. It's already bulking out and I usually recommend that you train it horizontal so that it can bulk out more. For you, this is going to result in a massive stache, which I don't know if you can handle. The one good thing about longer hairs in a stache is that they can be blow dried and shaped after they get to be about 1 inch long. My preference is a slight swirl from philtrum (center) to tip [look closely at my avatar or go to my journey thread to see what I mean].
Anyway, you are in for some wild ride and I hope your mental progress catches up to your physical growing soon... so you can handle this beast.
