Beard, Beard Go Away…

Ding dong the witch is dead!

Ok, that might be a bit strong, but the beard is gone.  Literally circled the drain a approximately 7:30pm, Friday December 12th.  I cannot adequately describe just how heavenly it was to lose that thing.  I feel like a new man.  I feel faster.  Younger.  Cleaner.  Smarter.

Since they say a picture is worth 1000 words, then this post will be something like 21,000 words.  All of these photos were taken by my lovely assistant and wife, Jess. So long “muppet kisses”! Without further ado…


First trim


Slightly Cleaned Up

More Trimming


Even More Trimming

Not sure what to call that… Stache and Narrow Goat.

Stache and Soul Patch


The “Magnum” (uh huh)

The “Chaplin” (not the “Hitler”)

“I kinda like it!”

First phase done

The carcass

Lubing up

Close in shave

Moisturizing… Ahhhh

The result.  Happy day!

Who knew this would feel so amazing?

  1. You should have seen the ZZ Top’esque monster I had going. Just took it down to a goatee and chops a couple of days ago. Now I know what the “playoff” beard is all about. 😉
