1984: grew full beard in HS and never shaved it off ~2000's: cycled between full beard and circle beard Nov 2020: entered DE traditional shaving universe and discovered B&B forum; Thanksgiving 2020 fully shaved out of curiosity. Wife and kids had never seen me without facial hair. Traumatic for everyone. Dec 1 2020: Last full shave. Wearing mask at work and in public, I am working on a a Van Dyke with emphasis on an epic moustache. I doubt it will ever be epic, but right now it looks a bit like the Mr. Pringles logo.
with a moustache thought that was called a vandyke ?
taught scuba for 15 years so no mustache
started my goatee as I had a portugese man of war wrap around my regulator and do a number on my chin so used it to cover up and protect it while it healed as I could not shave that area also took a few months to heal and so got used to that was in my late 20s anyway liked it and here I am 58 still have it
Had long surfer hair ya could say and got burnt out maintaining it shaved it to the shortest attachment clippers had and kept it that way even now for super low maintenance
Mustache/beard/sideburns all connected since my 20s. Cut the beard down to mustache connected to goatee. Sideburns rose to ear level. I was searching for more shaving territory. Bonus is that the length of my face is now visible. Other bonus: thumbs up from the LOTH.
