I've had had a mustache (and at least a little something on the chin) for over 20 years, but haven't kept the same look. When I started it I had hair halfway down my back, and it was mostly peach fuss. As the beard and mustache grew thicker my hair grew thinner, so I started cutting it shorter and shorter. I've had several bears styles over the years van dyke, circle, full beard, ducktail.... and many different lengths. Currently I have a shaved head and a bout 9 inches of beard.
