    Grow grow grow! Ya gotta get past the awkward stage. It's looking pretty good for 2 months along. Give it another couple months before making any drastic decision.

    How long would it be before I could expect my cheeks to start growing?

    Hey John, usually cheeks grow in anywhere between 3-5 months depending on your genes and amount of testosterone in your system.

    Josh Lawson,

     

    Is it normal to have shitty cheek growth at 25 years old though?

    That's totally fine John. We're all different. Even Greg didn't see a ton of growth until his mid to late 30s. Just keep on growing and they'll fill in eventually. If they don't then trim your beard down to highlight what you can grow and try again later. Either way, we'll support whatever you got!

    Thanks Josh,

     

    I have a decent amount of blond hairs growing in on my cheeks, but will these actually grow longer in a few months, or are they just peach fuzz that won't actually grow into a beard?

    I shaved it before so it is about the same now, maybe a bit shorter because it's only been a month, month and a half. But it does seem to be coming in a bit more this time. Just don't know if I should continue growing when the cheeks aren't coming in???

    You won't know until you go a while without shaving. It takes time, especially for the cheeks. I'm only 60 days in and mine are just now starting to do something.

    Cheeks can be the bain of your existence. They don't usually come in until late in your growth, about 2-3 months.

    I feel your pain. I've got light red hair for my beard.

    Would you keep growing?

    Definitely, keep on growing! I'm about 2 months into my own growth and still have bits that don't connect (I'm 21 if you need a frame of reference). You're doing great man, and your beard is gonna look awesome when it all comes in! Give it a few more months.

    Yeah man, definitely keep on growing! You won’t know what your beard is capable off until you give it some time. I would wait at least another 3-4 months.

    The most recent pictures I posted are just under 2 months of growth, bad/good, input?

    The cheeks are usually the last thing to fill in, so I wouldn't worry too much about it. Keep growing for another two months and see where you're at. If you don't like it, or it isn't to your liking, then trim it down and keep your stronger areas, like your stache.
