Movember!

Well, actually, November — and hence Movember — isn’t really over yet so I shouldn’t have shaved! But I just couldn’t make it…

 

Yet here is the before-and-after pic late into the month. Something to consider.

I lasted about three weeks. I tried out the month thing, and was genuinely curious to see how I would look by letting a beard grow. But it was getting too uncomfortable and scratchy so I took razor to face and there it is.

And yes I see the massive age discrepancy in looks–somehow I am both prematurely greyย andย young-faced.

Full disclosure: I can get be a bit of hairy dude. It’s not really my preference, but that is simply how my genetics goes. I do appreciate that facial hair is more in fashion these days, makes it a lot easier on me. A close shave every damn day is far too much work. Luckily no pressure of such in the current era.

In fact, a cleanly trimmed short beard is a common look that I think works and society/work seems to approve or at least tolerate.

Why I have a whole weekly system that works for me: How many days it takes to let it fester and how to trim well around that etc. before wiping the slate clean and starting all over.

Thus is my burden of facial hair. Anyway, from the unfinished Movember experiment above you can see what might have been…..

 

 

And that is all I can muster up to say on the subject.

  1. Still you did most of November! Great achievement. As someone who doesn’t grow a beard, I can only read about how it feels. From your photos there does seem to be a big difference, much younger now, 18 again ๐Ÿ˜ Didn’t know shaving your face each day can be a chore. Always seemed to me blade to skin but then again, not what I do to my face ๐Ÿ˜

  2. That’s a much better beard than i can grow. I just look all scruffy if I leave it too long. At the same time, it grows slow enough that I keep forgetting to shave it until I look scruffy.
