Hello. I'm a veterinarian that started growing beard 2 1/2 months ago. Always had a mustache since second year in college when tried to grow a beard then. Since I'm in the public eye as owner and I see client's daily, I feel that my grooming needs to be frequent to look sharp. Clients are more in favor of my new look than not. At about week 5, looking a bit wild, I decided to have beard groomed and trimmed a bit. 1 week later, started looking unkept again and decided to trim it myself. Approximate length at that time was a little over 1/2 inch. At week 10, approx. length was 1 inch, I went back to the barber. I told him I wanted to keep the general 1 inch length as my goal was to reach 2 inches. He did a decent job, except he did not keep overall length 1+ inch and now it was back to 1/2 inch!!!! Back to growing again!! 2 set backs. Am I trimming and grooming too frequently? I want to look decent and sharp to the public. And what do I do when I tell the barber what I'm looking for and he does not listen? How do you find a good barber? This guy was highly rated. Arthur
