The beard definitely helps !! It’s pretty common for the temp to sit around -20 and -30 during the winter months up here ! I don’t live by any great lakes or anything so the cold here is very dry, whereas if you go downtown Toronto and the wind coming of the water makes -10 feel like our -20... thanks for stopping in sir hope all is well !

Dylan - imo great beards always have two things in common.. solid chin and solid stache growth. You have potential for both! So don’t get discouraged about the cheek areas. Just sit back and let them fill in. You can always take a straight razor and establish a sharp cheek line. This can sometimes make the cheek appear a little more full than it really it is.

I never trim my stache at all. I want it to appear as full as possible. Of course it sucks to eat but sometimes you gotta make sacrifices for the beard goals . Also, a big stache will make the beard POP when people glance at you.

It’s also important to know that the general public see the beard as a whole and they don’t zero in on small weak spots like we do to ourselves. You already have a great foundation for the beard you want. Just stay the course

Thanks you very much sir I appreciate you honesty ! And coming from someone with such a great beard !! It definitely feels good !! Leaving the cheek line for now to establish as much hair as possible as they are my week area, and hoping that letting it just grow will add some overall density in the long run !!

I have also abandoned the stache trimming and have been using wax to get the hair to stay the hell out of my mouth !! And couldn’t agree more as a friend once told me on here it is the crowing jewel of your beard and since I wanna go for the bandholz look then the beard def needs to do some growing ! But I am not overly upset if the stache can’t grow to the full potential of the bandholz I will just keep it the same shape and rock what I got !

Thanks so much for the positive encouragement always a great feeling to get praise from people with great beards !!


Cheers

Been dealing with this kinda weather since I was a kid we are use to it but it still suck to do anything especially with 3 young children can’t take them out in that the risk of frostbite is higher for them !! Lots of inside days wirh hot wheels and building blocks ??

Hope all is well thanks for stopping by !

Merry Christmas to you and to yours

Hey kobbs !! It hard to say in weeks cause I was at 15 months and decided to go for a trim in September and the chick just slaughtered my beard so I trimmed back down right low and let it grow from
My last trim so in weeks I’m not even sure how manny since my growth is on the slower side ... hope that answers your question !!

As for beer I love my craft beer !! I’ll try anything from microbrewery!! The flavour palates they can achieve really attracts me to them ! I’m from Canada and love supporting local brewery ! My twos faves right now are the beers coming out of a Brewery called stack brewing out of Sudbury Ontario ! More specially their Saturday night which is a cream ale!! My other fave is from a Brewery called Full beard brewing company out of timmins Ontario ! More specially their beer called the bearded prospector which is also a cream ale !

Again to the time line I’m not even sure what my six month will Be cause really it wasn’t clean shaven... so when I update I usually put weeks since my last trim ! And I am gonna grow until I can pull of a bandholz style beard !! Leaving it all grow! Doing abit if neckline clean up here and there but not much !!

Thanks so much for stopping by and for the kind words !! Look forward to hearing back from you !!

Merry Christmas to you and yours !!

Nice! We are neighbors-ish. I live in Michigan. 30 minutes from Canada. My wife and I often have thought about moving up there. As far as Beers go. I love a good Belgian (My Go-To) or on occasion, a thick stout. I am pretty new to beer. Interesting fact, I hated beer until my wife and I went on a sugar free diet for 3 months. After the diet ...Beer tasted awesome. I could finally taste the back-tones. I have not tried craft beer, but hope to. Here in Michigan we have a lot of micro-breweries. But yah, Love Canada, and often hope to move there.

Hello all ! Wishing everyone a merry Christmas !! Hope it was good for all my friends on the board !! Figured I’d post my 9th update !!

Also something really neat happen to me other day ! I have been entering contest on a page that I follow on Facebook called the bearded bastard I’m sure some of you guys have heard of them ! They are out of Austin Texas !! Anyways it seemed that it was always Instagram account winning so I just sent them a msg asking if it was open to Facebook users to and they gladly replied with a solid yes so I said perfect sir thank you very much and went on with my night !

About 2 hrs later I get a msg from them asking me what product I would
Be interested in and since I ran out of beard balm I said I’d love to try man of the woods in beard balm ! Well they replied and said since it’s the holidays send us you address and we will send you some product on our dime !!

At first I didn’t believe it and just the other day my package came in the mail

I was so pumped their product is amazing !! Hope all is well everyone and merry Christmas!! And a happy new year !! Gonna be a really cold one tonight !!
