Do we have an instructable specifically on trimming and keeping a beard nice looking ? Answered

I am looking for advice on keeping my beard, which is becoming unruly already, trimmed and groomed.

I mean, I did a search and didn't find anything really useful.

In the spirit of Ogden Nash, I bring you an Edward Lear limerick:

There was an old man with a beard,
Who said: "It is just as I feared!
Two owls and a hen, Four larks and a wren
Have all built their nests in my beard".

Before and after pictures (in reverse order)...

I don't have perfect eidetic memory but I can remember random facts from things I've seen (TV, internet, books, ect.) and sometimes I can't help blurting them out in conversations that they apply to. But sometimes I paraphrase and get it wrong

. It will sometimes get caught in jacket zippers, but I don't wear a jacket very often. Very young children seem to be fascinated by it and like to pull on it.

. It is I and the beard is real. The picture was taken to highlight the shirt, so the lighting on my face is pretty crappy. . It's the t-shirt that makes me look like Kiteman. It's one of his designs. :)

. hmmmm I'm more squinty eyed and he has bigger ears. And I look MUCH younger than he does. <snicker>
. We DO have similar hairlines. This pic was taken when I needed a haircut, so, per W'burg, it looks a bit like a combover.

Hmmm? I don't know if it is my hearing or if the singer was just mumbling a lot, but I could not understand 'nary a word he sang. . . so the whole video was incomprehensible to me (or maybe it is just too early in the morning ;-)
