If you’re new to the whole having a beard thing, it can seem like a challenge to learn how to trim your beard. In reality, it’s not as difficult as it seems and can be broken down into a few simple steps.
Brushing it first thing each day will loosen any grime, dirt, or dead skin cells lodged in your beard from the previous day. Like using a comb, you start by brushing it “out,” but if you have a shorter beard – say, around a half inch – it’s simply a matter of brushing it straight down and training the hairs to grow in the direction you want them to. You can even use your beard brush on your mustache.
Hi Robin, thanks for your questions. Age can effect beard growth. Prime beard growing years are generally between 20-60. But many people older and younger grow full beards. Perhaps the most overlooked component to beard growth is hydration. Make sure you are drinking plenty of water, wash your face with an all-natural hot processed birch tar soap, and then apply beard oil or beard balm. In addition, a biotin supplement can help your beard grow thicker.
Raise your testosterone levels to speed up facial hair growth. If you’re currently going through puberty, or have gone through puberty but haven’t started growing your facial hair yet, there are some simple things you can do to stimulate testosterone levels and encourage hair growth. The effect won’t necessarily be fast, but you’ll get hair growing if you do some combination of the following:
Once you get through the itchy phase, you’ll get to the point where your beard will look untidy. To neaten up your look, I recommend trimming the neckline, upper cheeks, and mustache lip. If you are going for the yeard, or natural beard, you should leave your beard untouched.
It’s really quite simple to make your own beard oil with these ingredients. All you do is mix the various oils and you’re good to go. The key is to simply experiment with various combos and find what you like best based on scent and desired skin and hair benefits. Follow the basic steps below, then create your own recipes! I provide a few sample recipes, but the options are limited only by your imagination.
Now that we have provided you with the causes of a rough beard, we are also going to share with you some of the tricks we keep in our sleeves, to help you tame the rough beast that is taking over your face.
Taking care of a beard isn’t only about making sure it’s clean and moisturized. Sometimes it can grow in strange ways, different directions, or maybe just won’t cooperate. That’s when you can look to some of our helpful tools to train, trim, or guide your beard to be exactly how you want it. The essential tool that’s important to keep on you or near you is a comb.
Mustaches look great on their own or as a complement to that dazzling beard you’ve grown. Like a beard, however, a mustache can look a little less than its best – i.e., droopy, unkempt – without the proper care.
Our beard grooming guide is based on decades of successful beard grooming practices. You are encouraged to adjust these beard grooming tips as you learn what works best for you and your beard.

It only stands to reason then that beeswax is ideal for savvy beardsmen because it provides the kind of hold that few products can. It also helps lock in moisture that’s given off by other ingredients in the balm.
Many trimmers come with attachments that are added to the unit to achieve different lengths and different styles – such as a goatee – or include a stubble guide attachment that helps you achieve the stubble look that is popular among many men.
And of course, there’s the Bandholz. As previously stated, the Bandholz is a beard style that looks universally good no matter what you look like underneath it. On the one hand, it is large so it pretty much covers your lower face and neck. But’s also got a slight squarishness to the silhouette which sharpens up men with softer features but doesn’t look like overkill on men with angular features. Because of this aspect, it truly looks good on anyone.
If you’re new to beard trimming, experts suggest that you use the longest length setting to start. That will help prevent you from cutting your beard too short as you’re getting the hang of your new trimmer.
Trim with a beard trimmer every 5-10 days. After waiting for your initial grow-out period, when you’ve got the beard to its desired length, it’s important to start trimming and shaping it. Most men should trim their beards about once every two weeks or so, depending on your speed of growth, and the style of beard you want to have.
Clean Never Goes out of Style . Content is King, ig is the new walk-ins. Barbers and Stylist if you in a shop with no walk-ins its not the shop owners responsibility to feed you…..clients. No matter where you are in your career you have to continue to advertise your work. I look at instagram like it’s my own network and if it’s my network I better have my own show lol.

Great great tips! I would also recommend to be more active in order to increase testosterone levels, rest (8-9 hours daily), and eat better, which means, no junk food, limit alcohol, plus eliminate smoking.
You can use coconut oil as a pre-shave oil to soften your face and facial hair before you apply any lathering product. We mentioned already how coconut oil is excellent for softening your beard. And using it as a pre-shave oil is a great idea.

Use tapered settings on your trimmer, if possible. On most trimmers, you can use a tapered setting, which will allow you to trim the beard in even strokes, tapering it down to your neck as you go, without having to change the height of the trimmer itself. You can taper the cheeks, the neck and the chin, if you desire, for a nice, clean look.
Apply beard oil or balm on dry (not wet) beard. Apply a few drops in your hands and massage your beard working your way towards the roots. Massage the roots as well. Here again, our trial and error experience tells us that a safe choice in terms of ingredients and results would be the Seven Potions products. But if you find something better, tell us about it!
