My problem is that my beard grows OUT about as fast as it grows DOWN . . . so if I don't trim, at least the sides, my head looks huge and I already have a big head to begin with.

I realized my beard had gotten too long when a non-Orthodox friend of mine told me I looked like Rasputin.

Two times that I knew I needed a trim:

1) Caught it on fire during liturgy

2) Drove home from work with my window open and the wind caught it and poked me in the eye.

My husband trims his beard whenever his lunch gets tangled up in his facial hair.
