You are about to start your first beard or improve your current beard or you need suggestions for the effects of sporting your beard... whatever it is, this forum is the place to start. Once you have decided to grow a beard, you'll need to know how to get started and what to do at each stage of growing. Click on the [read] link in the list below to read that topic.
Disclaimer: There are many choices to make and ways of doing things when growing a beard. With this in mind we have tried to present multiple viewpoints when applicable and let you decide which is best for you.
Topics in this forum are designed to be lean and mean so that you can get information on a subject quickly without scanning hundreds of posts. Some topics are completely new, others are a consolidation from one or more threads and still others are extracted from an ongoing [and often lengthy] thread. The topics in the library are not meant to receive posts but there is a mechanism for providing feedback [see below]. If a topic is extracted from an ongoing thread in another forum, there will be a link here to that thread.
Topics in the list are color coded to provide special meaning as follows...
- Black items are finished threads and they are locked for making comments.
- Red items are finished threads that contain more important topics. Please make special note of them first.
- Blue items are new threads that are either being worked on or have not yet been started. You may be able to post in a blue item so that we can collect input but once there is sufficient input, it will be consolidated into the top post and comments will be removed.
