Hey guys...I am new to the beard game. I started growing one the first week in July, and have a pretty wicked specimen if I do say so myself. Trouble is, I don't know much about how to keep it groomed. It seems..."bushy" i guess is the word. Got hairs sticking out wildly at all angles. I have been trimming it with some regular hair clippers at 1/2", thinking that keeping it at a uniform length would help (except the chin area...I'm letting it grow), but it does not. Combing it sort of helps, but there are still a bunch of hairs poking out.
Also, where do sideburns end and beard begin? How do I blend my beard with the hair on my head (I have a close-shaved head...zero guard)?
Trying to grow a beard similar in style to Leonidas from "300" (don't laugh, you know it is an epic beard).
