I haven't been to a barber in 20 years at least. I've been growing my beard since March but have trimmed the sides with my Wahl clippers a couple of times to make my beard more square. Excited to get my beard trimmed professionally. The barber is very highly rated and the dude that's trimming my beard has a beautiful gray beard of his own (mine is mostly gray with some dark areas). Planning on asking about keeping it out of my mouth ( ), easy to manage and inline with my rectangular head. If it comes out poorly, well, I'll figure it out or cut it off. My wife likes it though, so the latter would be a last resort.
