I have had a full beard for about a year or so. I don't remember when I started I let it grow out of laziness mostly. But I have grown to like my beard & want to grow a nice long beard like Socrates(see picture) or maybe longer if I can. I haven't been able to find any advice about growing a long beard just advice about styling short beard styles. I have been letting it grow for about a month and a half or so & I wanted to know if it is best to just let it grow until I reach the desired length or if I should trim it to keep it even while it grows. Yesterday I trimmed the sideburns a bit around 1/4" since they were getting longer then the rest.
also I have 3 grey hairs on my cheek is this abnormal since I am only 23.
