Step 1: Shave the neck
I have to admit, it was really nice to not have a really itchy neck, but I don't know how much it really changed the appearance of the beard, so I moved on to a new style.
Step 2: Shave the cheeks to make chinstraps
An interesting look, but I can't say it was my favorite, though it did remind me that in recent months, I think I may have developed slight dimples (no, they weren't ever there before). Anyway, I kind of felt like a high school teacher... probably not the feeling that you would expect, but I swear the majority of the high school teachers at my school had chinstraps
Step 3: Goatee Creation
Honestly, the goatee just made me feel old.
Step 4: I got a Sexy 'Stache
By this point, I have to say that the only thing that came to mind was the ever-classic line from The Princess Bride, "Aaaaaassss yooooouuuuu wiiiiiiiiiiiissshhhhh!"
The thing with the 'stache is that it IS BYU approved, so technically, I could keep it and not be in the wrong. However, there are so many terrible stigmas about those with mustaches that I was nervous about keeping it.
If you will, I wish to take a moment to share with all those who have never been exposed to the wonders of Divine Comedy, a comedy club here at the BY of U.
Now I personally don't think it looked too bad, but I also don't want to be referred to as having a Chester the molester mustache. Ergo, I went all the way to Step 5.
Step 5: Get rid of it all!
Yup, so now it's gone and I am back to a bit of a baby face, but that's ok. And now that you're absolutely sick of seeing pictures of me, I would totally love your input as to which style you enjoy best! Very narcissistic, I know, but please comment below, and no, I won't be offended by any opinion expressed. I basically want to know if I should dry shave for a week and tear up my neck for a week once winter hits to try and get a beard card :)
Oh! and I almost forgot... the aftermath in the sink... grody, I know.
