How to Grow and Keep a Great Looking Beard

How to Grow and Keep a Great Looking Beard

So, you’re a guy that’s decided to grow a beard? You’ll be the envy of all of the guys that secretly wish that they could sport a handsome beard and you’ll no doubt turn a few heads from those that admire beards on guys. 

But where do you start when it comes to growing a beard? How do you make sure that your beard looks dapper and not a complete mess? 

Here are some beard care tips for the guys out there that want to grow their mane. Read on for more. 

Know Which Beard Shape Will Suit Your Face

When it comes to beard gains, you need to know which style of beard is going to best suit your face. 

Generally, you should let the beard soften any extremities in your features and pull everything closer to the centre of your face. For instance, if you have a long face, you wouldn’t want a beard that is long, and that will accentuate this fact. You’ll want a beard that widens your face so plan to grow a beard that has wider sides and is kept short at the chin. If you have a square face, think about softening up your jaw and having a larger patch of hair under your chin. 

A Good Beard Takes Time 

When it comes to growing a great beard, it will take time. You shouldn’t expect to see your beard appearing within days or even weeks. A good beard could take months or even longer to cultivate. 

Be patient with your beard. It will grow eventually. 

Shave the Perimeter 

There is a difference between a beard that is left to grow wild and a well-kept beard, and that is that the perimeter is always kept neat and tidy on a well-kept beard. 

This means shaving your cheeks and your neckline to keep your beard in check. 

Know How and When To Trim Your Beard

If you want a great looking beard, you need to know when and how you should trim your beard. Trim too early or too short, and you’ll be left with a weak-looking beard. 

Invest in a good quality trimmer. If you are not confident that you’ll do a good job, find a barber that is experienced at trimming beards. A good rule of thumb when looking for a barber for your beard is to see if they have a beard themselves. They will understand the plight of perfecting the perfect mane. 

Wash Your Beard Often 

Just like the hairs on your head, you need to wash your beard often. Think about getting a good beard wash that will not only clean your beard but the skin underneath it too. Dead skin under your beard hairs can be a problem, so you may want to clean your beard with an antidandruff shampoo. 

Then, once you have washed your beard, gently pat it dry. Never use a hairdryer or aggressively towel dry it as this could cause damage to your hairs.

Men, everyone is different. This is a good thing because every woman has different tastes and preferences; they don’t all fancy David Beckham. That isn’t the only reason you should try and stop modeling yourself on Becks, though. The other reason you need to stop and look for style inspiration elsewhere is simply that you may not be suited for his designer stubble and groomed locks.

Like we said, everyone is different; different face shapes and different body build, and choosing styles that suit what we were given is the only way to accentuate your most handsome of features. That’s where we come in because we’ve got some top tips and tricks to help you look like the best you that there has ever been.

  1. Face Shape

Before you pop into a clothing store or barber’s, your first stop needs to be the mirror. This is because you need to know what face shape you are rocking. Are you oval? Round? Heart shaped? Diamond? Oblong? Or even square? If your eyes are flicking between this and the mirror and you haven’t got the foggiest, then check out this flowchart by thebeautydepartment.com for a better idea.

  1. Hair For Your Face

How you rock your hair is going to have the biggest impact on your face, which is why getting your haircut absolutely spot on is going to be so influential on how handsome you look. The wrong cut can make you look a little, well, off, while these sexy hair tips can make you more sexy. If you’ve got a roundish face, then square it off with a style that is short at the sides and long on top. If you’re facing is more oblong, then a shortcut with the same length on top as on the sides will work wonders. Forget Beckham, it is all about you.

Beards are in. That’s a fact. But knowing which beard-type is best for you isn’t as easy as just growing some facial fur. Royale beard, circle beard, goatee, Van Dyke, Balbo, and anchor; these are just a few of the different style that you can choose from. Luckily, by knowing your face shape, you can use the ULTIMATE beard maintenance guide from 99centrazor.com to get the perfect look to suit you. What you are aiming to do is create a graduated, oval shape for your face.

  1. Get The Glasses Right

Summer is here and that means sunglasses can be added to your hot, hot, hot arsenal. But getting the style of glasses is right is going to have just as much an impact on your face shape as hair or beard. If you’re willing to spend a bit more or sturdy, designer glasses then places like Sunglasses Hut will be able to match a style to you. If you’re like us and just want to get something cool but cheap, then offset what you have. If it is a round face, go with large and square glasses. If you have a squarer face, then a light frame will work better.

  1. Smart Shirts For Smart Looks

Way too many handsome gents don’t realize how much their shirt collars affect their look and accentuate their shape. Yeah, there are different collar shapes and, yeah, which shirt collar you pick matters. Basically, the wider your face is the closer together, more pointed and narrower your collar should be. If you have a more angular face, however, like a Robert Pattinson, then a wider spread collar is going to work better for you.

  1. An Instagram That Suits You

We all use Instagram and Facebook, and we all want to look our best in the photos we upload and share. Luckily you can trick the camera into making you look like that demi-God you have always wanted to be. Slimmer, taller, shorter wider; these are all things you can alter with angles, backgrounds and the clothes you wear. If you want to look slimmer, turn forty-five degrees so that the camera sees that little bit less of you. If you want to look taller, then make sure the camera lens is pointed up at you from waist height or lower. Alternatively, sit down – apparently, the brain doesn’t look for height when people are sat down. When it comes to looking younger, your best bet is to have a subdued background and colorful clothing will help you stand out while also allowing your clothes to be a little distraction. Oh, and you can’t go wrong with black and white can you, let’s be honest.
