He rocked some awesome facial hair for decades... and I am sure you can surpass him.

Stay strong!  



My hair is dead straight, so I can see / feel it grow day by day. But remember... legends aren't build overnight!!

Burro!
What the heck are you thinking???????  Look at the style you got going.  Your sides are growing in so well.  Nice look.  When I see them, I see loads of filling in.  Your chin has become nice and long.  What a great beard.  So, it took 4 months!!!  You are 4 months richer for it.  Don't even think of changing it, and you are looking great.  Nice beard.  Every view is really handsome.

I want for you to just settle in, and enjoy what you got.  Now you are focusing 5 months?  Right?????????? 
Keep up the good work.
Merry Christmas sir.

Haha Tom you're the man. Thanks a lot man. I'm definitely going to continue growing in hopes that it looks more like an actual beard and not side burns with a mustache and goatee. My next goal is 6 months.

It's been a long time since I've been on your thread, and you've made some great progress, sir!

It sounds like you've reached a stage where, even though you're not completely happy with it, you plan on keeping it....to me, that sounds like you're ready for your thread to be moved over to the established side of the beard.  

Please let me know if you're ok with me moving your thread over to short beards.

It's awesome to see all the different beard styles displayed on this forum & yours is unique to you, it looks fine, a very cool look.
Good to hear your pushing on to 6 months, you'll notice a difference at that stage that will hopefully motivate you to push it a bit further down the road. Stay the course fella & welcome to established.

Merry Christmas

Stevie

I'm happy I made it to 4 months but I'm pissed at my haircut. The stupid barber shaved the hair under my chin and brought up my Neck line. That was four months of growth man smh.By the time he started I couldn't even stop him smh. I swear it's always something going wrong. Things were so much simpler without a beard.

Dood! Glass hall full. You learned 2 important things:

A) over-communicate to your barber

B) you need to find a new barber to over-communicate to

Still looks great man, and it'll grow back in quickly.

Your beard has possibly the most amount of uniqueness and personality on here... and I don't mean it like "She's got a great personality..." 🤣

It's edgy, hardcore, speaks to your character and is badass.

Rock it with style and attitude!... You look so down in your last pic... that's gotta stop.

I think I'd be sad if you grew in a thick, massive "Rick Ross" (the rapper & former correctional officer , NOT gangster) beehive type of beard!

With the revised profile, it reminds me of CLASSIC Rakim Allah, an absolute KING!

Your barber really worked over the neckline for sure, but beard still strong. Beard on brother

Whilst I have no idea what the barber thought he was achieving by shaving into your neckline, I am glad that he hacked into an area that is not widely noticeable and will grow back pretty quickly and smoothly. His overzealous trim could have been A LOT worse mate, and you are still marching on with your beard journey relatively unscathed - so that is a relief. As the other guys have said, being very clear, firm and insistent at the barbers is important - it saved my sideburns a few weeks back (previously shaven right off). Easier said than done when you're not sat in the barber's chair, but in the end of the day, the barber would rather see you leave happy than slapping some sense into them. You are a strong-willed and determined guy, and your commitment to date really speaks volumes about you. Keep it bearded dude, you are owning it. Cheers!

Well I do hope it grows back quickly because that was four months of progress 😔. I am glad as you said he didn't cut into a key area like what previously happened with your sideburns haha that must have sucked. I'll get through because I'm in in for the long term. Thanks for your support man !

So I’m convinced that some of my hairs just haven’t reached that anagen stage as yet despite starting my 19th week. Well at least the hair where my barber butchered is growing back.
