Update:

It's starting to hang a bit, feels like progress!
There is starting to develop a bit of a white / greypatch which i kinda like.  
I'm really glad you guys convinced me as i'm starting to see where this is going.

Cheers!

Hey Hank, great update! You're starting to see how a beard behaves as it gets a bit of length. It's so good to hear you say it feels like progress, because it is for sure. This is really what this board is all about, encouraging guys to give growing a beard a try, and to help them keep going until they can see their full potential.

You say there's a bit of a white/gray patch starting, but I can't see it in your photos. Gray is okay, but you should be able to enjoy your youthful dark color for a long time to come.

You're going to have a real trophy of a beard in a few more weeks, so I, too, am glad you decided to continue down this path. I said it before, and I'll say it again, I'm super envious of those big, strong sideburns of yours. You have great bearding genes, so enjoy it to the fullest. Onward!

- Jerry

Your beard looks great!   I'm getting a haircut on Friday but am going command the barber to only edge my beard and don't touch most of it.

Howdy Hank. If we didn’t have bad beard days we wouldn’t know how great the good beard days were, now wouldn’t we?

You are on point with your growth, forthcoming sharper hair cut an edging of your beard. Show us how it’s done.

And you even have a lumberjack shirt to show it all off.

You are living the bearded lifestyle well.

Great update! Your barber did a nice job giving you a current style, but the beard, that's all yours!

You've actually had a beard for some time already....but I agree that the barber did a nice job of shaping it.

At this point, I would say that it's time for your thread to be moved over to the short beards forum.  Let me know if you're ok with me moving it over.

Looks great!  But honestly, I think the fresh haircut does more for it than the beard trim itself.  I suggest you keep up with frequent haircuts to keep the haircut sharp wile letting the beard gain some additional length.  Haircuts with faded sides just make a beard pop.  Unfortunately, those faded sides grow out quickly and require frequent maintenance.

Your beard is looking great.  I think your cheeks are great and your chinpubes perfect.  and a beard always goes with a plaid shirt.  Keep up the good work.
Grow on.
