As much as I like growing out the beard, I truly believe regular maintenance is important. This is especially true if you have a curly beard or patchy spots like myself.
I used a comb to line up some edges and cut along the comb with my trimmer (no guard) to make the beard line up better. Now I’m no professional, but I like to do as much beard maintenance on my own as possible as it does get quite expensive going to a good barber.

When the sides start growing out poofy in the next couple weeks,is when I’ll go see a professional. 50% of the time I’ve tried to blend it on my own it ends up having to all come off. I can’t risk that especially if I’m going to be fulfilling this yeard thing with you guys.
The neck and cheek lines I always do myself with a straight razor of course, it’s the only way!
