The beard should wrap around the jaw, then stop. It should not extend under the jaw.

I think going under the chin is good, but I would agree that you might want to trim it up under your ear area.

Correct. The jawbone makes a pretty good demarcation. The chin has a bit more wiggle room, as do the surrounding areas so you can blend it in, but the jawline itself is roughly where the hair needs to stop.

beard guideline.png

You don't want to go below where y'''(x)=0. That is the point where the curvature of your neck is a maximum, indicating the boundary between the climb of your neck (no beards allowed) and the gentle undersloping of your jaw.
Even if this distinction is not particularly abrupt (meaning y'' doesn't have a very large value) y''' should still have some maximum.

I may be a minority on this one, but I think if you keep the beard you might want to consider growing out the non-beard-but-still-on-the-head hair. The beard seems to make the bottom half of your head look much larger than the top half, which seems a bit off to my eye.

In all seriousness its not to bad to shave around it once you've got it shaped. You've done the right thing to grow the beard first and shape it later. You are lucky that you are looking reasonably sensible. I looked like I'd been sleeping on a railway ebankment for a month.

As an alternative to the 'grow your hair longer' have you considered trimming the beard back to, say 8 mm? Just a thought.

Traps to watch out for:
1) letting the trimmer slip whilst bead trimming half asleep and shaving a patch on the side of your head - that took a military hair cut and a month to grow out
2) Forgetting to set the length on the trimmer and shaving a bald patch on your chin. Luckily this coincided with movember, so I shaved all but the 'tash and then started again.

I hate when that happens . . . I had a good chin strap going, connecting with my goatee for a chin curtain. Cut too short and had to shave the chin strap off cause it looked bad.

But awesome beard, I can't do a full beard like that, I have to be different than how my brother and dad have their beards
