Nice update, dude! You have a lovely young man's full beard! No, you don't need to trim the sides. You could let the neckline drop a bit, but yes it does need to be maintained, at this stage. Have you received any comments? How are you feeling about being bearded? Keep growing and beard on! :D

If you like the Spade style, then start preparing for it.  In this style, the massive amount of hair is in the front, not at the neck.  You have an extremely heavy neck beard which is going to look good when you sport a long beard later in life.  For now, keep the neck shaved and the length of the undercarriage at the neck short... tapered toward the long goatee.

The hairline below the neck in the first picture is steep and looks good for the Spade.  Now, picture that line extended straight to the tip of your goatee.  That is the Spade style.  Also, it looks best to carve the cheek line parallel to the hairline below which would be easy for you to do.

The stache is looking better in this picture... have you done anything with it or is it just become more intense on its own?

Start telling everyone around you that you are starting to like this quite heavy beard coming on your face and that you fully intend to keep it growing to 3 months and beyond.  It doesn't hurt to say that you have decided to style to a Spade beard as you grow beyond 3 months.  Of course those beardless critics will not know that style, so explain it to them.  The more positive words you use about how you feel with this beard, the more support you will get from others.  Never tell anyone that you don't care what they think... make your comments only about how you feel.  Given time, others will gradually agree with you.

ok i am very confused now. so you think i should make neckline like this? http://prntscr.com/hmkm4g

All neck hair must go? I did not think there is much of a diffrence comparing Spade and normal full beard. Do you have a picture that shows the diffrence? Do you think I have enough front hair for a spade to look good? Because honestly i have doubts about the front.. Otherwise i will just stick to neck hair and grow a normal full beard..

Stache got better on it's own. (:

I will, i told most of them already.. From my experiences they will learn to accept my different look.

PS: i created lines with Lightshot, free program. I thought it might help you with advicing how to make neckline and that stuff.. thanks

No, not at all! You just need to raise it by a finger width or 2. :)

The Spade is a more intentional looking long beard whereas the full beard has a heavier look. Your side pictures show the difference.  Right now, your undercarriage is well covered and pretty much horizontal.  Then your coverage has a very slight dip down and then angles up toward the ear.  This is a natural line for you and it is the beginnings of your Spade style.  Below that hairline is a heavy neck beard coming along, that if left growing, would fill in and give you an almost horizontal hairline from chin to ear.  That is a heavy beard.

All I am suggesting is to remove that little dip and clean shave the neck.  You only need to bring the center point of your neckline up about 1/2 finger width to remove the dip.  Looking at your neckline from below, it goes almost straight across.  If you bring just the center point up a small amount but leave the end points where they are, you will have a slight inverted U.  It is a very minor adjustment.

I think you can style to a great looking Spade because you have heavy, dark coverage in the undercarriage.  Let the front part and goatee take on length to establish the massiveness that you want toward the front.  At the same time, minimize some of the bulk toward the back... especially under the ears.  That is going to redistribute your beard bulk from the back toward the front, where the style calls for it. 

These are not massive changes... they involve just minor trims and slight carving.  Your barber can help if you need it... especially to taper the undercarriage from long in the front to short at the neck.  Don't take these steps just because I recommend it... but do google Spade beards and look at the possibilities you can have.  Trust me, it can be a beard as long as you want it and it gives a very intentional look.  It is a style that you move your beard toward... not something you just reshape and the next day you have it.

WEEK 8!
I decided i will grow it with the same neckline for a while and then decide later whether i wanna change it to the spade, if that is even possible..
Things i noticed--> it seems to me that left side is covered in hair more thatn the right side.. May be because the hair grow down on left and up on right and i cannot really brush it down on the right.
It seems like the moustache is covered more on left side too and it looks a little unsymmetrical.
I think that the neck hair grow over my neckline and that makes it a little lower.. Should i raise the hair and trimm the way it was before, or should i just trimm the hair that goes over that line? Should i trimm the hair under my ear? Thanks for all the comments and help.

Nice update, dude! Your young man's full beard is looking great! I don't see any differences in both your stache and sides. You may want to clean up the neck a little bit. Have you received any comments? Keep growing and beard on! :D

Thanks to both of you. A comment comes here and then but it stopped mostly.. My little sister whose i don't see very often seems a bit scared of me (: And little cousins grab over my beard. Ha. I am not being an oversensitive person saying this but is it normal that it hurts when someone pulls you for beard? I mean if someone pulled me over hair with that force, it would not hurt.. Is facial hair actually more sensitive than head hair?

It might be, I guess there are less nerves in the scalp, but don't quote me on that, I'm not an expert on this matter. Nevertheless, your beard game is strong, it's very well and quite mature. You have many options in terms of style. Enjoy!

Your pictures are showing beard improvement... your stache seems fuller and darker... your sides are getting darker... side in the second picture is really showing well and the other side will show just as well soon.

The curl in front of the ear in the first picture could be shortened just a bit... the neckline carve would really show your beard so very intentional but I can understand your point of lower beard.  If you are going to trim parts of your sides, then the neckline becomes more important.

Little kids like to pull on beards to see if it comes off... they can easily pull it enough to make it hurt.  OTOH, your g/f's pull on your beard will be much less forceful and you will likely enjoy it.

WEEK 9.
I am starting to think whether it is gonna look good if i continue growing a beard. Because right now, i am not sure i like it. I'd like to try to grow a 5-8sm long beard. How long will that take to grow? There are these hair sticking out once i brush a beard down. Should i trim them? Neckline still ok? Thanks for support.

Woah, nice update dude! Your young man's full beard, is coming along nicely! If you mean a 5 - 8 cm, I would say within several months. No, don't trim the longer hairs, they will get used to being trained. Neckline looks fine. Have you received any comments? Keep growing and beard on! :D

Hi Tryer, your beard is looking good & thick at 9 weeks. I think most of your doubt comes just from getting used to seeing yourself with this much beard. It really looks very good!
