This is the Yeard, as of February. (The 14th, to be exact.) You’ll see a bit of growth and that it looks a little bit hobo-ish already. I can’t braid it yet and it’s a bit patchy. Damn my uneven hair growth!
Other things that I’ve noticed:
- I’m officially at the length where I can thoughtfully stroke my beard and I only look like 80% of a tool.
- Beard Oil/Balm and conditioners are your friend. If I don’t keep it tamed, it gets wiry and terrible. Maybe as I grow it out it’ll soften?
- My hair looks terrible in that photo, but in my defense I hadn’t brushed it yet. Just woke up, so the eyes are extra-squinty.
- Yes, I’m wearing Mardi Gras beads. Our friend Gladstone (who needs to update his damn blog!) sent two sets of beads and a delicious king cake from Randazzo’s for Mardi Gras. I’ve cropped the photo, because at the bottom of those beads is something rather phallic. Actually, it’s a miniature plaster dong. Hooray for Mardi Gras! You don’t want to guess what the other one had on the end of ’em. THANKS, GLADSTONE!
