First Beard Culling

May 18, 2010

As many of you noticed I have been growing out some facial hair. I have a rather full and thick beard. The majority of people liked the beard (mother not included) and I was thinking about letting it grow till the end of summer, but the sides were touching my ears a lot and I cannot stand hair touching my ears. So I trimmed/shaved it. has a great compilation of styles to look through. I like the hair down the sides, but wanted to grow out the goatee a bit, so I went with a sort of strap/goatee look. I’ll try it out for a few days. The sides may get shaved and the goatee may loose some width, but right now it seems ok.

Here are some before and after shots.

Edit an hour later: The best part about these pictures is that I got a haircut right after posting them…..
