The only beard I can grow is the “I hate shaving so now I will have uneven wiry hairs all over my face until someone says something about it” beard.
It’s a trend I’m trying to start.

I go a week w/o shaving and it isn’t noticeable. So fricken jealous.
I know the feeling. My 17 year old roommate has basically a full beard if he goes a couple of hours without shaving, while I can let it grow out for an entire summer and have nothing.
I didn’t see the “Barry Gibb,” i.e., the full beard on the cheeks and chin, but clean shaved on the neck and under the chin. I have a full beard, but once I shaved too high on the neck and had to shave completely for fear of being mocked for the Barry Gibb.
One day, I’m gonna get rich by inventing a perfect beard ‘template’ just to keep my goatee from getting uneven when I trim it. No matter how careful I am, a couple of times a year, I zig when I should zag and end up having to overly trim it to compensate or start over altogether.
Oops, proper term for my style of beard is apparently a ‘Van Dyke’. I’ve been misinformed over the years apparently. I suppose I should just call it ‘The Devil Beard’ after a friend’s reaction when I first grew it.
Thanks for the praise. I’m glad someone’s on my side.
Danno49, I’m not one to dispense advice, but the trick to straight lines is a cheap plastic comb between the clippers and your whiskers because no moment sucks like that one where you stare at yourself in the mirror and think, “Maybe no one will notice that big bald patch.”

I have had a beard continuously since 1977 and some sort of facial hair since 1968.
At this time, I have a big beard. Not real long, but full. I look like a cross between a part-time grizzly-bear and a Viking.
