Along the way you’re going to get a few wisecracks from family, friends, work colleagues and even complete strangers. Just like dealing with beard itch during the first week or two, you need to treat these comments with the contempt they deserve by ignoring them. In no time at all you’ll be sporting an awesome beard, which will take less time than you think, and you’ll find those negative comments will be replaced with compliments and envy.
Every man should attempt to grow a beard at least once in his life, and truth be told, it’s a lot easier than you may think. Yes, it requires regular maintenance and effort, and you’ll find yourself fighting the urge to shave it off when it starts itching or someone makes a cutting remark, but the feeling you’ll experience when you’ve grown the beard of your dreams will make the effort completely worthwhile.
