Beards have been making a comeback since the turn of the century. Everything from long and less kept to short and fine-trimmed can be seen on the faces of men you pass just walking down a city street. Men are still shaving, just less of us are shaving it all off these days.
Going to the barber is a viable option, but learning to trim our own beard will save us a lot of time and money. Then we can leave all those trips to the barbershop behind.
