Beginners Guide To Beards

In recent years, most people thought that the sudden popularity of beard growing was nothing more than a passing trend, a fad. However, the growth has not slowed, and the hairy-faced man look is now very much mainstream.

Making the choice to grow a beard is a strong one, it’s a time of rediscovery. During the pandemic, when the world shifted to remote work, more men began growing #CoronaBeards, a trend that started on social media and got followed across the globe. Men are at last finding the freedom to look, style and dress in a way that makes them feel themselves, which will strengthen their confidence, self-esteem, self-awareness and improve their mind’s health and wellbeing.

Growing a beard can be fun, it can take you on a journey, but before you invest your time in this voyage, do you know what type of beardsman you are?

People might tell you that size matters, but bigger isn’t always better when it comes to beards. Easy to trim, easy to style, easy to groom with less hair to control. Whether it’s simple designer stubble, a goatee, bold and thick, any short beard is stylish and elegant with the ease of maintenance added in.

The scruffy beard is a slightly longer variation of the shorter, trimmer version, adding a little indie grit to your look. It doesn’t matter how your beard shows up. Patchy, thick, fuzzy. Scruffy is a style anyone can wear with ease.

Close-cropped, regularly groomed, kept neat and suitable to wear in any work environment. This will take more time as you learn to master your neckline and cheek line trimming skills.

Toeing the line between rugged and contemporary. Natural in style, between 4-6 inches long, yours may be straight, wavey, or curly. Show off your personality with this badass mid-length option.

Once you reach around six inches, you’re officially in the land of the long beard. Harder to control the growth with more time to groom and keep in check, but you’ll never know the feeling of rocking full-length king whiskers until you try. Everyone should have a go.

No matter which style you go for, you must train your beard and care for it and your skin underneath too. So start a beard care routine today and stick to it for the best, long-lasting results.

• Scrub your face using our Deep Cleansing Exfoliant to remove built-up dirt and grime from your skin and beard.
