They’re harder than you think.
So, last night I got a wild hair– pun intended– and decided to change up my look a bit.
I needed a haircut anyway, so I basically buzzed everything off (a bit more in top than the sides and back) and I decided to initiate a beard as well.
And I sort of fucked up my initial beard line.
You see, I almost never wear a beard. Mostly because my dad (and every other male relative on that side) has a beard. To be different, I opted for a Van Dyke instead.
And goatees I have learned to trim and shape. Beards, not so much.
Evidently there are geometric rules about the placement of the neck line of the beard as it relates spatially to your ear/jaw line. Then there is how far down the cheek do you trim, etc.
It’s all very confusing.
And I made the number one classic blunder of trimming my neck line up too high to bring it close to my old goatee line.
Had I only googled “proper beard lines” before starting in with the razor!
So, the next week will be spent readjusting my neck line. Once I get it closer I’ll take a pic.
