Facial hair has been in, in a big way for a while now and it doesn’t seem to be going away. So if you have a beard, want a beard or you’re growing a beard. You need to know about what you should be doing with it.
These are our 5 Facial Hair Mistakes, come on over and build your beard knowledge.
Its Not Going to Happen
Not every man is capable of growing a Gandalf beard, you might only get as far as stubble and you might not even get that far. Your facial hair might be patchy and growing a full beard just might not be what you’re capable of but you can always experiment with different looks and styles to implement what you can grow. Remember when Justin Bieber grew that horrid thing? Nobody wants that.
Not Trimming/Letting it Grow TOO Long
Even if you’re trying to grow a lumberjack beard, you still need to make sure it grows out nicely. Letting your beard just grow aimlessly will leave you with straggly ends and that doesn’t look good, it just looks lazy. If you’re facial hair looks course and unruly, it’s unlikely you’re going to have a long luscious beard without a great deal of TLC.
Similarly, over grooming will be an issue as well. Having a nice beard with a good shape does wonders for those lacking a strong defined jawline. But if your shave it too much its going to end up looking a bit more comical than well groomed. Shave off as little at your cheek as you can while still maintaining a straight line and make sure you don’t have a neck beard. Although shaving right up under your chin to the jawline isn’t advised either.
Using Beard Oil
Both using it too early and not using it at all. A woman wouldn’t neglect to condition the ends of her long hair and you should feel the same way about your beard. With a long beard, not using beard oil will leave you with scraggly ends and beard dandruff. Yes that’s a thing. It’ll smooth the skin and condition the hair. If you’ve only got stubble or a very short beard then all you need is a good moisturiser, the oil will too much for your skin and cause whiteheads.
Not Looking After the Equipment
For sure when you have an outstanding beard you’ll need good tools. Trimmers and razors are, obviously, key to perfection in this area. Be sure to keep all your tools clean, trapped hairs and unsterilized equipment will lead to germs and eventual skin issues if you. Clean out any stray hairs and invest in a good disinfectant for clippers. For example, this WAHL Spray for around £10.
All in all you should be proud of your beard and treat it with respect, you’ll look better and feel better for it!
