A beard is attractive on many men. It can cover old acne or other types of scars or make a weak jawline look more masculine and prominent. Not knowing how to style beard hair sometimes causes men to hesitate before growing one. Styling the facial hair keeps it looking well-groomed and attractive and is not a difficult task.
1. Keep it Clean
Wash your beard as often as you shampoo your head. Use the same shampoo and conditioner you use on your hair. This helps keep it soft and manageable. Beards typically dry rapidly, so comb it in place with a fine-toothed comb so it looks stylish when it is dry.
2. Manage the Length
While your beard is still wet, comb it to remove any tangles. If your beard needs trimming, run the comb through a half-inch section of your wet beard until the comb is about 1/4 inch from the end of the hair. Trim the section with a pair of hair cutting shears. You can find these at discount stores or any place that sells grooming and beauty supplies. Trim all the sections of your beard evenly until it is tidy and lays in a becoming style.
3. Use a Trimmer
Clean up the edges of your beard by using a rechargeable beard trimmer. Choose one that is cordless if you can find it. The process of how to style a beard in a good-looking manner means that you make straight cuts with the beard trimmer. For instance, cut a straight line underneath your jawline and then cut a straight line angling up toward your ears on the side of your beard. Repeat this process twice a month or even less often if your facial hair doesn’t grow quickly.
Knowing how to style beard hair means the difference in looking your best or appearing unkempt. Once you become used to the process, you will be able to accomplish this task within about ten minutes.
