Tonight I found this picture of mine hidden in a dark corner of the internet. I guess we all have crazy hairstyles in our youth (age 27) :P

That's a good look.  I mean, if I were going to grow a goatee at least I'd try to get it long like that.

coool.
who are all those people hiding in the grass?
are they shy next to the magnificent beard?

or are they searching for the icon, not realising it's hidden around your neck?

I recently started using Firehouse Moustache Wax and it's pretty fantastic.
 
Great, long-lasting hold.  I'm gladly letting my moustache get longer and thicker so I can look like a saint.



I need more moustache!  The plan is also to find/make a good beard oil so I can grow a thicker beard and not look so scraggly.

Update:
Sad moustache

Happy moustache

^Reminds me of tsar Nicholas II. You could put an icon of him into your bathroom. Maybe your moustache start shining uncreated light under his patronage.

Maybe you could write an akathist for your moustache. Just in case they were canonized some day.

And for a quote from the Mt. Athos Typikon

Quote
o   Personal hygiene is of the utmost importance and shall be attended to conscientiously by the monk.
o   Every monastery shall have a bath house where the monks may bathe modestly.
o   The monk shall bathe at least once a week and shall trim his beard and have his hair cut as needed. o   Failure to keep one’s self clean is cause for disciplinary action by the hegumen.

Mt. Athos requires bathing now?  They have clearly gone liberal on the Holy Mountain.

You leave out the part that says "1 TYPIKON OF THE MONASTERIES OF THE AUTOCEPHALOUS MONASTIC ORTHODOX FAITH OF MOUNT ATHOS (as amended)"

Which ones are autocephalous?

None.  Athos is an autonomous monastic republic, but it is under the EP.  The writer(s) who posted this got it wrong (intentionally or by mistake...who knows?).  Just take a look at the source:
