Just a grooming tip. Jerry Garcia is not how you should model your personal style.
If you must have facial hair, make it like you groomed yourself by trimming your beard with a particular pattern. Wild hair must be combed and tamed, not look like you have been dropping acid since the 70’s. If you are still in your 20’s definitely stick to gels to control longer hair. No matter how much you comb it over when your older, you aren’t fooling anyone.
Most importantly try to keep within the normal realm of weight management. If you are approaching over 30% body fat, you need to take some steps to go back towards 20%. If your belly blocks your view of your penis, it is a good indication that you are approaching obesity.
