I have been performing lately in the Gilbert and Sullivan operetta, The Pirates of Penzance, and for it I have grown a beard.  I am not really thinking I will hang onto it after the show ends, but the reviews have been positive, so maybe I will keep it.  The wife likes it, which is really the most important opinion, but even with that said, I don't like the beard in its current form.

To appear more piratey, I have just let the beard grow pretty wild, so if I do keep it, I will have to sculpt it. Here are some beards of note that I might model my facial hair on.  Feedback is welcome.

  1. I think if you kept it like it is but just trimmed it into check (not in any particular style) it would look good.
