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!  

Want me to move you over?

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.

25 weeks of growth and coming up on the halfway point on my yeard. Been using Mane and Tail for the last 3 weeks and finding my beard softer than ever before. Also just started 10000 mg of Biotin per day.

Its grown quite a lot in a month, looking good!
Keep letting that moustache grow, big moustache makes all the difference in a beard, in my opinion anyway.

Edit: I was looking at your 12 week picture when i posted that, then I realised this topic had more pages, what a difference! What a beard! Good luck on your yard.

Dude, your beard has just exploded the last few weeks. It looks absolutely awesome, and I would love to have the density and texture of your 'stache. Very nice, man. Great patience to stick with your commitment to growing. When you look in the mirror, what do YOU think about the look you have achieved? And what kinds of reactions are you getting from friends/family/co-workers, etc.? Stay the course.  Rick
