The Future of the Beard Program

Hello fellow beardsmen and friends!

The Beard Stream has been a regular part of our beard coaching program for almost 2 years (October 2015 was when we started), and has been a great place to not only learn about beards but to also form lasting friendships. I have made many close friends through the years, and I have every intention of keeping those friendships alive and well! I also understand seasons, and this season of life has been unbearably busy. I was offered a job a while back, and after prayerful consideration decided to take it. I am also more involved in ministry now, which will include a lot of traveling. The Beard Stream, at least for NOW has to be paused. But, I have the feeling the pause will be permanent. Who knows for sure?

The core of the beard program has always been our direct message system, and the great news is that it will continue! Our resources will remain online, and aspiring beardsmen will still get the help they need. The ONLY thing that is changing is the live stream element.

I hate goodbyes, finales and last episodes. I get hopelessly sentimental and depressed when something good ends.
I have wrestled with this big time, it has been a big struggle. But, I just don’t think I could bear to make a “final” beard stream. I thought of announcing on tonight’s stream, but I am just not in a good place to do that. I would rather leave it as it is, and hope one day to be able to pick them up again!

Please reach out to me ANY TIME on our message system at http://beardsupport.com or reach out on Beard Album.
I would love to hear from you.
As I said, everything remains the same, as we have done for 4 years (since 2013) with exception to the live stream.

I love you guys! Hope to hear from you VERY SOON!

Your beard coach and friend,

Daniel

P.S- WILL be updating you on my beard on Beard Album. PLEASE stay posted and in touch!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

How To Trim Your Beard Neckline

How To Trim Your Beard Neckline

Let’s be honest, the neckline has been the fall of many a decent beard. The neckline alone can be the difference between you looking sharp and amazing, and you looking like an absolute idiot.
I don’t say that to put pressure on you, or discourage you from it. Especially if you have a shorter beard style, this is VERY important. You can’t just opt out of it if you have a shorter beard.
So, how can you trim your beard neckline, without creating a disaster?

How To Trim Your Beard Neckline, WITHOUT looking like an idiot!

The biggest mistake guys make is having their neckline TOO high! That’s where you can look like an idiot.
There is a technique where you can avoid having that high neckline. Here are a few

How To Trim Your Neckline Well

How To Trim Your Neckline Well

“A” is an arbitrary line that shows an angle of some sort. “B” is a line that is also arbitrary, it’s there for it’s own sake. This is a vintage drawing, so, let’s just move on.
Notice the hair is trimmed to stop UNDER the jaw line. Not above the jawline, it’s got to be under. Also, notice that sides are left alone. Sometimes guys like to trim between their beard and their ears, and start messing with the width. That is going to through off your neckline, and will hurt your beard image.
Trim just under the jawline, NEVER above it, and let your beard “wings” if you will, alone. Don’t mess with that!

So, first, take a BIG deep breath. No stress, just sweet calm. It’s just you and your beard.
Start at the corner of your jawline, nice and smooth. Move across, going right UNDER your jawline across. In the middle it might be just a bit thicker, just always move JUST under the jawline. Remember, you can always cut off more later, so feel free to go conservative with this. You can’t undo it!

Once you have formed that neckline, proceed to shaving off the rest below the line.
Don’t like the neckline? Don’t fear, your beard will grow, take pictures, learn from your mistakes, and become your own best barber!

God bless, and have a MIGHTY beard!

Daniel
