The awkward beard stage.
This occurs when your facial hair is just venturing out of the stubble stage and into the beard.
And well it is somewhere in between.
It looks a bit of a mess.
Because it’s not quite long enough for trimming into a beard.
At the same time.
It’s not short enough to pass for some stubble anymore.
And generally speaking, it looks a bit of a mess and can be often a bit patchy - and is another reason why guys who would make generally good beardsmen - go back to clean shaven.
It usually happens, a week or two after the itchy beard phase - so you will be looking around week 6 to week 8 from going bald-faced.
Apart from taking our advice of growing a beard during the Movember or Decembeard time - to use that as a potential excuse.
