I just turned 19 last month. I've been trying to grow some sort of facial hair for a long time. I was growing up watching historical films and fantasy films situated in a medieval like culture. All the dudes had long hair and beards there, and I started to absolutely love that look. Some first hair were my mustache filled with vellus hair in elementary school. Two years ago I was trying to grow some facial hair but wasn't realy pleased with results, so I kept shaving. Last year I tried to grow everything for few months, and I was reading all the articles beards related and found some serious motivation on this forum.
I wasn't still satisfied with my results so I decided to keep shaving for another 6 months, than try it again.
Finally the time has come. I threw away razors and started to grow facial hair.
Right now my growth is one month and almost a week. I want to grow it wild without trimmimg for 3 months and than decide, If i can keep something.
Here are the pictures, first ones are in the bathroom and others are in natural light.
And natural light:
Detail on the sideburns:
And my goal? I don't have any specific goal right now, but I like many kinds of facial hair, even the unperfect thin ones.
But one day it would be nice to grow something like this: (I know I am not able anything like this in near future, but one day, few years later maybe...)
Any advices, motivation, responses and opinions are well appreciated. Thank you!! :-)
