    I've had mine for around four years now.

    I trim it every now and then, but only slightly. I think the last time I shaved it off completely was 18 months ago, but it grew back within four weeks.

    Convenient

    I trim it once every three weeks, and just fix the outlines (neck and cheeks) once every ten days maybe.It's a lot more convenient, and all the girls I've been with so far love it.

    I have recently decided to grow a beard again after years of being clean shaven..it's coming in alright..it's got an orange tinge to it..which is kind of strange since I don't have any other orange hair.

    Dedicated To... You Know Who You Are.

    I really love my beard.  I've had it a LOT longer than I was without it.  It keeps me warm in the winter, and gives me shade in the summer.  It's been a pert of me since I was 17.  It's so much of my identity that there are very few people in my life who have...

    My Beard Story

    I've had a beard since 1981, although it's gone through various manifestations, and I've even shaved it a couple of times. When I have shaved, once I get over the disappointment that I don't look like Brad Pitt underneath it all, I get on with re-growing my hirsute appendage. I...

    I just recently lost a large portion of my

    beard do to a fire. Shaving the rest almost brought me to tears. In a world where it is acceptable for men to look more and more feminine with each passing year, I rely on my beard to show that I am full of testosterone, like a man should be. Without it, I am naked. I would...

    I Certainly Love Mine.

    I love my beard. I've had one since the mid '80's and I intend to keep it. Mine doesn't grow wild: I keep it trimmed neatly once a week, I like the crisp look and it looks good with my buzz cut.My take is that beards do, indeed, reflect a certain level of masculinity. Our culture...
