A straightening iron does wonders. I'm sure with the right product I could get it quite pointy.

Beard straightening is excellent!

I straighten my hair a lot of the time anyway so straightening my beard isn't much of a jump. It keeps the bushiness under control really nicely. Definitely a lot weirder (in terms of where my arms need to go) than straightening my hair though.

Also, because it's been a while, I thought I'd post some pics of me:

I went to a museum. They had armour to try on :D

And, my university took part in the "who needs feminism" campaign (link to the album with all the photos). I did a few.

Straightening is do-able, though? Are there any important differences from straightening head hair?
In terms of beard, I've been thinking of dying my hair some crazy colour, but if I did, I'd want my beard to match. I've been told that the beard bleaching necessary would be much more painful, because of the relative amounts and sizes of pores on the scalp compared to the face.

Yeah, straightening is definitely doable. The biggest problem I have is that I started straightening it after I trimmed the bits not on my chin right down so they're now too short to straighten. This means I've got some unstraightened bits next to my straightend bits. It looks ok though.

The main thing is that you probably need to get fairly near the roots to get it looking like it's evenly straight along its whole length so you need to be extra careful not to burn your face. I also found that my beard hair is less flexible than my head hair even when straightened so it looks a bit silly if I straighten it too much. I tend to pass through quite quickly and not too many times or at too high a temperature (I do my head hair at 200C and my beard at 150C). I also use the heat protection spray I use for my hair although I'm not sure how necessary it is.

Theoretically, the bleach shouldn't be touching your skin *at all*. Leave a 1/4" gap between skin and bleach on hair, then when adding color dye right up to the skin (assuming no sensitivity, always do a inner arm patch test with the color.) Depending on the type of dye you're using, semi, demi or permanent, the stuff will color your skin and you'll have to exfoliate pretty hard to get it off. Tricky to do without killing the beard color. I've found SPLAT brand to be a pain to get off, Special Effects quite easy, and Manic Panic to be somewhere in between.

This is super helpful, and I am very grateful, sir. I gather from your avatar that you have similar hair/beard thickness to me, so these things should not require too much twerking to make them work for me. Excellent!

Hmm. I'm not familiar with the other two brands, but I know Manic Panic does some good colours. I do wonder, though, if leaving that gap wouldn't look a bit odd, even on top? Doesn't it clash a little bit, going from a natural colour (In my case, dark brown) to one that's so different (I was thinking of trying a lilac)?

Eh, I don't know that it makes much of a difference if you get it as close as you can without giving yourself a chemical burn. Despite having sensitive-as-hell skin that bitches if anything but the most expensive goddamned "organic" lotions touches it, buuuuut I disregard my own advice and deal with the burn. It helps that I have very fine hair, so bleaching takes very little time.

A little off-topic - Wednesday, have you tried the Shea Moisture baby products? I also have skin that becomes angry at many products, and I got the Shea Moisture baby lotion for myself a few months ago, and have used it with great success. They have it at Walgreens and Target, it's not SUPER expensive (like $9-10 for a pretty decently sized bottle), and it's all organic and cruelty-free, and synthetic color/scent free and paraben-free and all that jazz. It smells really good, too.

Yeah, it's not the fact that you have eyeliner on; it's the fact that your eyes seem to be deeply inset in your face, so that area of your face is already dark.

Though, in those photos, the light source is above you, so...

I agree with the eyeliner. I probably won't try it again for a while (getting that done was traumatic enough and I did end up with glitter on my eyeball from the eyeshadow) but it isn't, in principle bad. Sadly, the coat (of which I am very jealous) doesn't really fit me very well (it's too narrow across the shoulders, the sleeves are a bit short and it, being a woman's coat, is cut for boobs I do not have.

Yeah, I think it's more the lighting. When I was looking at myself in the mirror (where the light ends up coming from more or less in front of me), it didn't look so bad (just a bit overdone). When it was just a thin bit of eyeliner it wasn't too bad at all.

To be fair to the person who did it, that was probably more because of me flailing around every time she tried to put something near my eye (and she insisted on doing my waterline) than anything else.
