It seems you are getting a bit more length in the front as you come up to your 2 month checkpoint.  Your beard continues to show quite well... very intentional looking and that you really care about it.  I'm sure you are getting a bit more coverage on the sides but it's hard to see this with the camera angles.

It's great to have a woman by your side who supports your beardedness... have you discussed anything about length?

Keep updates coming and try to get some straight in and closer shots of the sides.

Close up on the sides, hope that’s better.

That's much better... your beard looks substantial and very mature from all angles and these closeups show just how much more coverage you will have as those younger hairs go terminal.

Good beard model to aim for & with your coverage should get pretty close to it!

Hey guys, just thought I’d upload a style update.

Been curling my moustache with wax and training it to go to the sides more.

What does everybody think and can anyone give me any tips on how to train my beard more.

Thanks! 🤟

Good job of getting that stache off the lips... now you can let it bulk out as it grows to the sides.  The curls look sick and will get more intense as the hairs toward the ends get longer.

At this point you should be treating your beard with jojoba oil or the like... about 5-6 drops worked into hair and skin.  After that, brush the hairs down and toward the front.  You may comb the goatee forward and then down if you want to emphasize it's length.

As to actually training your beard... choose a style and we'll help you get there... it doesn't really require 'training' so much as shaping.

Good point made for the goatee trick, so I just brush it all up then down again?

I’m using gentlemen’s beard oil and balm too so I guess its just waiting now.

Thanks for commenting jasjes.

I would really like to have a civil war sort of beard with a mean meaty moustache, really going for the epic moustache.

All I have to do now is wait for the cheeks to fill in more.

There's not much to do for your civil war beard... let it all grow and get some length below, then let that stache really bulk out by keeping the hairs horizontal.  Don't pay much mind to the cheeks... they will be filling in just fine in the months ahead.  While you are waiting for your adult full beard to come along, you might as well accept your beardedness and let this beard become a part of who you are... you are ready for this.

Another two weeks go by!

Hello fellow beardsman, hope all is well on the forum today!

It’s been around 16 days since I last updated progress on my beard overall.

I’ve got to say I’m loving the bearded life, I had my doubts, scared of my beard looking thin or wispy and I know this is not the case

I think I have a great beard for my age and I just need to relax, been staring in the mirror too long as well so in need of some love people.

Been receiving compliments, I was talking to two ladies who came to visit there mother at the care home and said to me “I don’t like beards but yours suits you really well!” Another comment was “you look like a Russian tzar” that was after I was asked about my surname and it’s Russian origins

Anyway I’ll post pictures below, also been dealing with itchiness especially in the chin area, been using beard balm and oil to combat that.

Thanks guys! 🤟

Your beard is taking on good length and thickening up on the sides.  No need to be concerned about your beard potential... and your mental progress appears to be doing quite good as well.  Keep up the good work.

I just took a look in the mirror and I’ve finally accepted my beard ness.

I said to myself “this is my beard, my hair, my body” I no longer care for the social norm

Going to grow this beast out as well as my hair and then I’m gonna go find Wilson lol

Below is a pic of me with curly hair about 10 months growth
