How about a video on how to trim a beard and neck line so you don’t look like a hobo with a full beard.

Remember the 5th easy step… after you have trimmed your ‘stache, clean up those jettisoned hairs or you may have to contend with the next person using the bathroom (usually the wife)! I love the AoM!

I second that! Any advice or secret tips would be greatly appreciated.

Great tips! Props on that Goodlife henley at the end (I own the same one).

I already have what passes for a mustache, and it’s taken me the better part of the summer to get it to where it is now.  And to call any lengthy chin whiskers that I am able to produce a beard is more an act of kindness than a statement of fact.  Truth be told, there are high school kids who could grow a better ‘stache than I could and in a dambed shorter period of time too.

However, I look at it this way.  A man is allocated only so much male hormone in his lifetime; and if you want to use up yours by growing a beard, well, that’s your choice.

Gotta ask you, what is that ring you’re wearing?

It’s a Freemason ring. I’m a Master Mason.

I do all that except the use of a comb for length. Good lesson.

Erick Fogle – not a video, but this helped me a lot.

Hello there

I’ve had a mustache for more than a year now. I’ve taken the habit of cutting it with scissors about once every two weeks, but have never trimed it with a clipper. I’m afraid my stache isn’t thick enough, and will look “weak” (for lack of a better word) if i do it. What do you think, manly community?

My beard is growing up my face and cheek bones, what’s the best way to keep this in check?

Thanks Brother, I have the worst time with my mustache because it is so wild. I heard something about trying mustache wax. Any thoughts? ~/G\~
