Any chance of growing a wicked handlebar mustache before the trip?

I hate letting my mustache get too long because then it tickles my nostrils in the middle of the night and wakes me up.

I get similar issues, plus I hate whiskers in my mouth, so even if I wanted to, there would be no elaborate mustache for me, either. I occasionally shave my beard, and when I do I spend about an hour with a mustache-only just to mess with my wife, but the first time I go near a mirror, it goes on the chopping block.

Mine doesn't tickle my nose, but it does get in my mouth if I let it get too long. I try and solve that through a combination of trimming it and combing it to the side.

On a related note, I've realize I could totally rock the Dr. Venture look:

It's past time to trim my beard and mustache when the mustache starts to get in my mouth. That's just "no thanks."

So I keep my face pretty clean-shaven, but I do want to contribute to the "mustache in your mouth" conversation. My facial hair grows pretty fast and stiff, and it's really easy to miss some of the bits at the corner of my mouth. And then I can't focus all day because I have these little hairs jabbing into my lips every time I do anything.

I have felt your pain. The beard actually partially solved that, at least when my trimming is done well.

Yeah, if I let it grow out a few days then it's way softer and less likely to poke me. I just don't like having a beard. (Partly more effort to maintain, partly itchy, partly just not part of my self-image).

Total bullshit. You are making shit up to join the conversation.

It takes weeks to grow hairs into any part of one's mouth.

Not into my mouth, like, dangling in there. But they grow on the corner of my lip, right on what I'd consider the boundary between "the outside of my mouth" and "the inside of my mouth," and they jab up into my lip and it's really annoying.

Jadagul's thing happens to me, too. If I miss the corners of my mouth when I shave the little hairs there bug the crap out of me all day. I don't know if "growing into my mouth" is the right way to explain it. More that they create friction when I move my mouth, and I cannot resist worrying them with my tongue.

I just dabbed my trimmer at the corners of my mouth to prevent that, when I had a beard.

Dude speaks truth. In my shaving days, the corners of my mouth were annoying to shave, and even more annoying to have missed, because stubble there totally irritates the lips and/or tongue from time to time.

Maybe it's not an issue in New Zealand because your beards grow in upside down? :ugeek:

If it's only a few hairs, which you consistently miss while dragging a razor over that area, have you considered plucking those few hairs with tweezers?

I hadn't ever considered that, actually. Probably not worth it, because I don't consistently miss them--just once every couple of weeks. How much slower does tweezed hair grow back?

They will shave you. They being the surgical crew. I didn't do anything apart from regular grooming before my hernia repair a few months ago, since I knew they would shave before the surgery regardless. It's like getting your hair cut before boot camp; you're still going to have a date with the clippers.
Having said that, I will provide one caveat: they only shave around the incision area. Hence, if the incision is only on one side, you can end up looking a bit lopsided. 'Nuff said.
I'm expected to shave myself. They will do it if I show up unshaven, but they were quite clear that I should do it before arriving. Also, the nurse/ technician / nursing assistant / whatever was annoyingly bad at explaining and listening.
