Just curious if anyone else let their beard go crazy during quarantine. When I stopped going into the office I stopped trimming it. Now it's probably 3x the length it was and magnificent af. People ask me how long I plan on keeping it, at this point I'm not sure I'll ever go back.

I've had mine since May 2009. I have zero desire to shave my face ever again.

I've had a beard for a long time, I can't remember the last time I've been clean shaven. But I always kept the beard relatively short.

I have a trim roughly 1-2 times a year. It was 2-3 times a year, can't remember if I've really done 4 times in a year.

If I can remember, the trimmer is set on 4 or 5 when I trim, so that's typically the shortest I go.

I'm hoboish at the moment. solid 3-5 inches of scraggy growth.

I tried, but can'y break through.  I've made it 7-10 days without shaving and it drives me nuts.  I would like to try a beard someday, but I just think it's not in the cards for me.  I love the feeling of a fresh shave too much.

Once you're past the itchy growing out phase, it's no issue at all.

I already had a beard but I keep it short. But I did let it grow for two months without a trim. My wife hated it. She did not like seeing me grabbing and pulling on it.

I'm constantly pulling on mine, it's a nice pacifier when I'm stressed.

My wife likes my beard, she does hate when I pluck out straggly hairs.
