Preparing to make a float beard

This image is from, where you can find various beard styles.

I have spent the day crimping, hackling and blending hair for a float beard I am working on. It is a lot of work and I forgot how much I really  like it.

I love the smell of the hair when it’s being crimped. I love the different textures and lengths of the weft of hair. How blending the same five colors together in different variations gives a beautiful variety. That variety is what makes the beard look more realistic.  I wish I had more time so I could make a lace beard, but I am in a bit of a rush.

When I do have more time, I will also do a blog about the steps I took to create and apply the float beard.  In the mean time, I found a few interesting beard related websites.  It’s always a good idea to have reference material when you are working. I found these websites interesting and helpful. –  beard styles.
