Beard grooming tips

  • Don't trim your beard when it's wet. Wet hair is longer, so you might end up trimming too much.
  • Don't cut your beard too short. The shorter your beard the harder the hair and the ladies don't like short beards.
  • Use a shave guard to get a uniform shave. It looks much better than a shaggy beard.
  • If you are having trouble balancing the beard, on the sides of your face. Try starting below the ear and then working down, do the same on the other side.
  • Stray hairs can be removed with a trim razor, don't try to pluck them.
  • Just like with the hair on your head, shampoo your beard regularly. Using a mild shampoo is best for your skin.
  • You should try using conditioner on your beard. It does wonders for some beards.
  • After washing, comb your beard with a wide toothed comb.

Frequently asked beard questions

1. Will I look better with a beard?

There are so many different kinds of beards and faces, that this is very difficult question to answer. What I suggest you do is to start with a short beard. Then grow it longer. Have a look in the mirror to see which length you like best and get some feedback from your friends. After trying a number of lengths, cut it down to the one that works best for you.

2. How can I make my beard thicker?

Thicker beards are more manly, but there is nothing you can do to make your beard thicker. You just have to go with what your genes gave you.

3. My beard is making my face itch. How can I stop it from itching?

You need to shampoo and condition your beard, just like the hair on your head. Otherwise the skin under the beard may dry out and itch. Short beards are more prone to itching than longer beards.
