Just wondering people's rituals for the playoff beard, when to shave, trimming, etc.

Personally I shaved every morning for the last two weeks (which I haven't done since working before University) just to prepare and shall shave tomorrow morning for the last time. But does anyone else have their own rituals? For example do some people shave after every loss? Or just wait until after the final game? Plus what are your views on trimming. I'm planning for two months of unkempt growth! I shall also wear my two jerseys every day, regardless of occasion.

Plus ladies, let us know your rituals as I know in recent years the bracelets have worked well!

Feel free to post periodical pictures of beards as well.

I do a final shave the morning the playoffs start and then go all out until the playoffs end for the Wings, win or lose. NO TRIMMING ALLOWED!

I started my playoff beard when the Olympics ended because I decided it was pretty much playoff time at that point. So far, so good. It stays til the Wings are done. GO WINGS GO!

I did mine the right way, and stopped shaving when we clinched.

Are we suppose to shave private parts during the playoffs? I could use a good excuse to go Italian for a few weeks.

My thinking is in line with Ozzie's on playoff beards.

I did this too mostly be cause I was lazy towards the end of the olympic break, and decided what the heck, I'll start early this year. Has worked like a charm.

The girls on this board have been doing a thread/wristband thing based on the Wings wins and losses in the playoffs.

Unfortunately for me, my job requires clean shaven everyday.


If you start a new thread within two hours after a Wings game, specifically a loss, YOU ARE WRONG.

I shave the day after the Wings last regular season game (so tomorrow morning)

Then I do not shave again until the playoffs are over, or if there is a special occasion that I NEED to be clean shaven for.

I always have a beard, because I am a man.

I started growing it out as a, 'let's get in' beard. I will now trim it and let it grow again for the playoffs.

I can't do it. I can grow facial hair absurdly fast, I can probably get a good beard in 3-4 days, but I can't stand the itching and scratching at it. Every time I grow a goatee I get too impatient and shave it off after a week usually. No facial hair for me.

shave the night of the last regular season game and then no shaving till they win it all or get eliminated. Hopefully I look like Gandalf this year(unlikely because my beard sucks) Its go time desert dogs!

I'm shaving tonight and not again until the Wings get eliminated. I have graduation in a few weeks (college), so I might have to shave then though. This year I will probably grow it for a few weeks and then shave it into a terrible mustache. I grow terrible facial hair- spotty, thin, disconnected.

I don't really do anything. I just watch the games.

THIS. I'm sorry, but I just can't. Those who can put up with it deserve some serious praise. It. Feels. Terrible.
