Hi everyone - I've posted a couple threads here before but both times I disappeared for 3+ years. My last topic from 2013/14 is archived here. I thought I would check in and show you guys how my beard looks these days. I've had a short beard basically all the time since my senior year of college in 2014. Generally my pattern is grow for 2 months, trim, grow for 2 months, trim, etc. Last August I shaved down to a solo mustache for the first time, which I loved and will definitely be doing again in the future. I started growing my current beard on October 14th (so I'll hit 3 months next week, mustache hasn't been trimmed for about 4 months), and this time I'd like to grow it quite a bit longer than I have before. It's already about the longest it's ever been and I'm feeling really great about it. I've been brushing it out and using beard oil daily and I'm starting to get comments about how big it looks. This morning a guy on the bus asked me if I ever trim it and I got to smile and say "not for a while." I also have an appointment scheduled with the barber to clean it up in late February, so I'm locked in for at least another month of length.
