    Hi everyone, I'm Bryan and I love in Long Beach, California. I am in my 50's and have had a mustache  probably since I was born. On and off goatees and once a very short beard. Decided go for a full beard and went to Youtube for some information. Came across Beardbrand and watched tons of videos. I am nine weeks into my full beard adventure and enjoying the growth process. I am a Flight Attendant and was worried a bit about what my company would say and low and behold I got complements on my bread from management! I have not trimmed my beard yet as most advice says to wait for at least three months. I have crazy plans to fly to England and go to Poole to have Mahesh trim and shape it for the first time. Will see how that goes.

    Thank you Beardbrand for all your encouragement for beadsmen everywhere!

    I too am new here to the forum.  Exciting to see the changes and growth of the company and brand.  I do have a suggestion for the "Welcome to the community" topic/thread. Is it possible for you to keep the "Welcome" thread at the top of the forum page so that we can meet new members and put faces to names etc?  In my past experience on forums, I always enjoyed having an idea of whom I was reading about or talking to.  I will add my profile pic in a minute, but, I am talking about keeping this at the top of the message board community so that we can all meet new members when they sign up, and make new friends etc.  You recently featured your staff on social media so that we can get to know who is making Beardbrand tick, it would also be nice to meet/get to know other beadsmen who join.  
    Just a friendly suggestion...Thank you!

    Thank you BeardBrand for finally making a place where I can chat with some like minded, beard loving people. The name is Luis. Beard is currently 4 months old. I'm going for my "yeard" journey. Seems to be coming in nicely but the mustache is lacking behind any tips would be welcomed.

    So I’ve been really surprised by everyone’s response at work. Everyone has been very positive about my new beard. I’m really digging this thing! I did make a few rookie mistakes, but I’m learning.

    Hello everyone, I'm Vinay and I live in Anchorage, Alaska. I recently (2 months ago) started growing my beard, something I've wanted to do for a very long time, but have always worried about the different directions the hair grows. Plus, I've always worked in professional environments that were not happy with facial hair. But, I turned 40 and decided I was going to go ahead and grow no matter what. My mug shot is below (I messed up the cheek line at first, so I'm letting it grow higher).

    Beardbrand's Youtube videos have done a lot to help my confidence to decide to go ahead and grow it out, so thank you to all of the awesome Beardbrand gents!

    You look great Bryan, welcome to the family. Mahesh will be in Austin for a little bit due to our CxBB party on March 14, but he will be back at the barbershop toward the end of the month. It's great your job is open to the idea of you having a beard, and even complimented you on it! Keep on growing, man. You're doing great!

    Hello Everyone!

    I have lots of questions, but i'll save those for the other pages of the forums. I'm new to bearding and have managed to grow quite the beard so far. I started in November and have only trimmed the neck and the cheeks to prevent wolf like features and keep it nice and sleek looking.

    I've made oh so many mistakes along the way but its finally coming along! At this point in time, Greg Berzinsky is who i've learned most of my beardology from and is where my current beard style comes from. I've thought about a beard for many years but its my wife who finally pushed me to try.

    Here's a picture of my beard from a couple weeks ago, took this with my phone and touched it up a bit with Google Photos:

    Beard on!!!

     

    EDIT: I've updated my look so i figured i'd post a new picture, im going to grow the hair out on my head longer than this:

    Hi There,

    Andries Jansen from South Africa, on my birthday 2017 I shaved everything off to give my face a break after having a beard of somesort for the past 8 years.  

    Since then I have only had 3 maintenance trims just to get everything back in line, my beard grows at weird rates around my face.  

    I have 2 basic looks, 

    1. my Lets go hibernate face

    2. My lets go out face

    I have been watching a lot of the beardbrand youtube videos on grooming and on styles for thinning hair. Now I am just waiting for the video for styles with practically NO hair. 

    Have a great one!
