By  | 

Are you walking around publicly with a beard that looks like Gandalf’s or Dumbledore’s? Or maybe you’re just starting out with a few patches here and there? Either way, you’re in the right place, and we’ve got some simple and easy beard grooming tips just for you.

Get the look you want by learning to trim and shape your beard like a pro. With a few simple techniques, you’ll have a lush, stylish beard in no time. So, grab your tools, and let’s get started!

Step One: Gather the Right Tools

Before you begin, you should ensure you have everything it takes to get the job done. Here is what you’ll need:

  • A high-quality beard trimmer
  • A razor, if you want to keep it clean and simple
  • Beard oil, the secret to a soft, moisturized beard
  • A comb
  • A mirror to admire your handiwork

Step Two: Choose Your Style

What style of the beard are you going for? There are many magazines and websites where you can learn all about beards and shaving if you’re not sure what look you want to go for. You can choose a short, neat look, a longer, wilder beard, or something completely unique. Decide on the style you want before you start trimming away. 

Step Three: Prep Your Beard

Now you should get your beard ready to be trimmed. Always make sure your beard is clean and dry before you get started. A dirty beard can clog a trimmer, making it difficult to get the job done. Use beard oil to help detangle your beard and make it easier to trim!


Step Four: Start Trimming

It is estimated that men spend 3,000 hours (four months) trimming their facial hair during their lifetime. So that adds up to a lot of time in the bathroom for men who shave daily or almost daily!

You want to start by combing your beard hair in the direction you would like it to grow. Slowly and carefully trim any long hairs that stick out. If you’re going for a shorter beard, start with a longer guard and work your way down to the shorter guards until you reach a length you’re happy with.

Step Five: Shave it Smooth

If you want to look your best, shave your neck and any stray hair with a razor. But, you should be sure to lather up with shaving cream to avoid nicks and cuts. No one wants a beard with battle scars!

Step Six: Finishing Touches

Finally, when you are done, you can step back to admire your handiwork! Now you have a well-groomed and lush beard that is sure to turn heads.

Start Trimming Your Beard With Confidence

Now that you’ve got the tips you need, you can shave with confidence. Although it may take some time and effort, the beautiful beard you end up with is worth it! If you want to look sharp all year long, check out our blog for more men’s fashion tips and advice.
