The dilemma of trimming

I have a dilemma, the dilemma of trimming! I am growing my beard out but, it has gone a bit wild during lockdown!!

To trim or not to trim, that is the question!

I have trimmed my beard before. It didn’t end very well! It led me to shave my beard down to a number 2 as I took way too much off the sides!

It was a sad day for me but the beard grew back! I have since only really lightly trimmed the sides with a pair of scissors or trimmed it down with a 5 guard.

I generally go to a local barber, who is the only person I trust to tame the mane. He knows his stuff and always takes care to trim my beard exactly the way I want it.

Lockdown problems

Of course, barbers have been closed due to lockdown and the Covid-19 pandemic. However, they will soon be back open for business and for my beard, it can’t come soon enough!

I have heard that a lot of barbers aren’t going to be trimming beards as the customer won’t be able to wear a mask. I kind of understand that. No one wants to catch the virus. The barber will obviously be wearing a mask or visor and I am hoping there will be a way around this.

I have already made an appointment in the hope that he can sort my face fuzz out and make it look respectable! If he can’t then at least I can get a head shave for the summer sun to burn my scalp!! I’ll let you know more when I finally get to visit the man with the scissors.

How is your lockdown beard? Have you trimmed your own mane or are you also waiting for the barbers to open? Have you had the dilemma of trimming? Let me know in the comments.

In the meantime check out my post on Working from home.

Take care and keep growing
