19 weeks of growth. Happy with gains although its becoming much frizzier now. Ive been experimenting with product and blow dry methods to control it but none too successful so far. 27021341_10155850709615499_6216458802673847053_o.jpg

Wow, man, your beard has really taken off! I don't see any of the frizziness you mention. Could be you are spending too much time in front of the mirror ;)

Looks like you will be in Long Beards before you know it!
Stop trimming your moustache; greater glory awaits...
but if you are going to trim, do it right, go pencil...
then, of course, a nice copstache can be cool too...

I probably do notice it more than anyone else does :) current length from the bottom lip is 3 3/4 inches so soon I will get the thrill of promotion to the big beard board. Enjoying the journey so far.

Yes...your gaining length really suits you. You've a pretty cool beard there, NAustin. Coloring is great and stache has gained great stature. Enjoy your inevitable jump to long beards soon. Best .

Gotta say I like the added length in the 19 wk pic compared to the 9 wk pic. Hope to see you soon in longbeards.

At 4 1/2 inches, you are past qualifying for long beards.  You did not fail this time.  Congratulations!

Great beard. Keep it growing. Keep the trimming at a minimum and go for more length (if that is what you want). Good luck on your continued growth.
