Simple Beard Styling Guide For Men
1. How to Style Your Beard Based on You
Even if you have a preference for how your beard should look, never assume that just because you grow a beard, you can look like your favorite celebrity. Having a beard that fits the shape of your face is an essential part of beard growth and also makes it look stylish.
Whether your face is round, oblong, square, or more triangular, you should make sure that you choose a beard that matches your face shape, but also your general style, so that it even matches your hair.
Decide whether you want a “soul patch” to be present or whether you want a mustache at all or not. If you decide on a beard style, also try not to style the beard in such a way that most of it is cut off (it may grow faster, but it still took you all that time to grow it to that point. Why would you want to undo that, right?)
2. Beard Products for Styling
When it comes to styling your beard, aim for something that will not damage your beard. And always use a special beard oil product first, which primes your beard and gives it a protective layer against everything you want to style it with. Don’t use normal hair gels or styling products that contain large amounts of alcohol – even if they don’t say so, most hair gels contain alcohol. Instead, buy pomade (which is only available for beards, although it can be more expensive), a cream or wax. And make sure you brush your beard, then you can style it as you like.
Also be sure to invest in a powerful and portable beard trimmer, as you don’t want to cut your beard too far unless it is your desired length. However, you may want to cut your beard every few weeks if you want to keep it at a certain length. If you are growing the beard, cut only the ends while holding the trimmer perpendicular to the desired beard angle (usually downwards and slightly outwards so that you keep the trimmer more vertical), and always rinse the beard well, comb it out before and after (to remove unwanted remaining hairs), and use the oil again after trimming.
You can even use household products that you can buy cheaply in a store, such as a blend of vitamin E combined with coconut oil, to nourish, style, and help your beard grow.
3. Beard Products for Grooming
There are many products that can help you with the care of your beard. Make sure that you only use products that can help your hair to strengthen its natural oils. When it comes to can wash your beard every day, do not do it. You can wash your face without washing your beard. Even with the best beard products you can find, you will still remove the natural oils you need to keep your beard healthy.
Try to wash (scrub and massage like your scalp hair) every 2-4 days Don’t just stick to one thing afterward: if you have beard creams, after massaging in beard oil, use one of these creams to style your beard and brush the nutrients through every single hair.
4. Tips to Keeping Your Beard Perfect
When it comes to keeping your beard perfect, use special techniques and products optimized exclusively for beards, or make your own beard. Also make sure that you get enough nutrients, vitamins, and sleep so that your body can build the cells needed to produce the oils, or even so that your beard grows longer if you wish. Folic acid and vitamin E are great benefactors of cell regeneration and can even be purchased over the counter at very low prices (most of them are also available as multivitamins). Be sure to brush your beard, or use a special beard comb (don’t use just a thin little comb, as these tend to pull and tug and can even cause tangling in your beard).
If necessary, use oil first to remove tangles. And as always, make sure you try to grow, trim and groom your beard to match the shape of your face. Someone with a pointy face, whose beard is styled in a square shape, may just look silly (unless that’s your gimmick).
