That said, finding the right trimmer to execute this not-really-shaving look is a challenge. You want one that will last for years while still holding its charge, preferably with a lithium-ion battery. The blades should be sharp — for morning efficiency, mostly — and the tool should feel good in your hands without seeming cheap, or getting too easily clogged with hairs. My last trimmer recently went kaput, so I decided to check out all of the options on the market to find the best replacement. After researching more than 30 trimmers, and testing a dozen from major electronics brands and digital upstarts alike, these five stood out. And not just for simple things like having the most power, or the strongest blades, or ample battery life, but for otherwise being a cut above the rest. (Sorry.)
“[Loved one], I’ve decided to grow a beard and I know it’s going to be a little bit different. It’s something that I’ve wanted to do for a long time, but never had the confidence to do. I’m hoping to grow it for [length of time] months and can really use your support. Please help me through the hard times and help me reach my goal.”
In China, the revolution of 1911 and subsequent May Fourth Movement of 1919 led the Chinese to idealise the West as more modern and progressive than themselves. This included the realm of fashion, and Chinese men began shaving their faces and cutting their hair short. Moustaches were however, still worn by prominent figures like Sun Yat-Sen, Chiang Kai-shek and Lu Xun.
Limited Length Settings: The 8 length settings on this model don’t give you a lot to choose from, which as a result can really limit the styles of beard styles you are able to achieve and inhibit your grooming ability. Depending on the type of beard you like to sport, this model simply may not be up to the challenge.
We have an ongoing stream of customers asking about the difference between beard oil and utility balm, also commonly termed “beard balm”. Since the oil and the balm both moisturize your beard, which product works best for you?

I recommend the Kent Boar Hair Brush. Boar’s hair is natural product (sorry vegans) that is not rough on your skin. The brush bristles are uneven so you can reach root to tip in a single stork. Kent also makes a quality product that will last a life time. Yes, you might spend $25 to $200 (expensive brushes are 100% handmade) for a Kent Brush, but you will be using this brush every day. The Kent Brush will probably out live you.
From men with little to no facial hair at all, to transgender individuals, to men that just want to improve the growth they already have, TMBS has seen minoxidil journeys from a large variety of people.
Since testosterone occurs naturally in your body, that means there are ways to increase it without supplements. Lifting weights and exercising is a huge factor in that, and we’ll get into the best workouts you can do later. Along with working out, you’ll want to be getting plenty of carbs, proteins, and the good kind of fats in your body. This ups your energy level, metabolism, and helps with testosterone production. Getting plenty of rest and reducing stress will keep your body healthy and ready to grow a beard as well. So let’s dive deeper into all of that!

The next problem men face when trying to grow a beard faster is unreasonable expectations. It is almost impossible to wake up one morning with a fully-fledged beard, but you can begin to see growth over a few days. When tempted to shave it all off, remember that it will take time and that you are taking active steps in the right downward direction. Most men move out of the itchy, growing in phase by the end of the week, so focus on something else and it will arrive faster.
So, give your beard a proper shampooing and conditioning. Our motto in terms of hygiene is that there is no such thing as too clean. So don’t worry about washing your beard too often. Three times per week would be a fair number of times, if you ask us.
The beard became linked in this period with notions of masculinity and male courage. The resulting popularity has contributed to the stereotypical Victorian male figure in the popular mind, the stern figure clothed in black whose gravitas is added to by a heavy beard.

For a beard to grow long and healthy, it needs proper nourishment. Think about it. Your skin that surrounds the roots of your hair is alive. If you keep it healthy, that is the first step to growing a robust and thick beard. The next step is strengthening individual hair shafts so that they’re protected from breakage and damage. The natural oils in Wild Willies Beard Butter work to do just that, so your beard can always be at its strongest. Note that we reviewed Wild Willie’s Beard Butter in another article. They offer great products, and we featured them twice for a reason.
That’s a great question. Truthfully, you can begin applying it even before any stubble grows in. The reason for this is that the oil will moisturize and nourish the forming hair follicle beneath the surface of the skin, so that your facial hair grows in healthy and strong.
The short answer is yes, any man can grow a beard. However, if you’re a full-grown adult male who experiences no facial hair growth, you should consult a physician. But with that said, all healthy men—barring genetic conditions or something of that nature—will exhibit beard growth once they’ve reached adulthood.

While many brands offer only a single beard oil scent, Beardilizer have a whole range of unique smells, including Gentleman Sandalwood, Ol’ Cowboy Leather and Choco Swag. Our favourite is Sweet Pipe Tobacco, which smells like you’ve taken a pinch of your granddad’s personal baccy blend and smeared it all over your mush. It’s also great for moisturising and will do wonders for your hands as well as your face fuzz.
Originally used to treat high blood pressure – and it still is – Minoxidil had an interesting side effect on it early users, namely, it caused hair growth. By 1988, the FDA had approved Minoxidil as a hair-growth product while also allowing it to be marketed under the Rogaine name.
Beard Balm’s dedication to naturally sourcing their ingredients deserves a lot of praise. For instance, the way they get their beeswax from Michigan bees who haven’t been exposed to pesticides not only protects you, the customer, but they’re supporting a responsible apiary that is preserving an at-risk species vital to Earth’s ecosystem at large.
Beard balm is a styling and shaping aid as well as a leave in beard conditioner. A good beard balm should moisturize your facial hair, provide hold for styling and make your beard look thicker. For best results, avoid beard balms using synthetic sealants like petroleum jelly as they may irritate your skin and damage facial hair. Find a beard balm that contains all natural sealants like shea butter, beeswax or lanolin. These ingredients are natural, help your beard look thicker and are less likely to irritate your skin.

Lift heavy weights. Exercising is great way to improve circulation and help those crucial beard growth nutrients and hormones get into the follicles, but resistance training in particular also skyrockets testosterone, which is awesome for beard.
To trim your mustache, first comb it straight down. Then use either the beard trimmer or scissors. Start in the middle and trim first towards one side of the mouth, then towards the other. Normally, you should not shave or trim the top of the mustache. It usually looks best if you let it grow all the way up to your nose.
After some experimenting, you’ll quickly find your favorite combos. My favorite scents are definitely peppermint and tea tree. As for carrier oils, I enjoy the coconut because the dry Colorado air dries out my skin. The jojoba is also a great base since it closely mimics the natural oil your body creates. Again, refer to the benefits above of the various carrier oils, and figure out what works best for you. Below are a few of my favorite recipes. The names are my own creation, but feel free to steal them.
Your beard trimmer is only as good as the company it keeps, and by that we mean accessories.

So consider adding these to your collection.

This will help nourish facial hair at the roots. Reverse and run your fingers through your beard in a downward motion from top to bottom, spreading the balm down the hair follicles. Don’t forget your moustache and the hair around your mouth. Brush the balm through your beard with a boars hair beard brush to distribute the balm evenly through your beard. Use the boars hair brush to straighten your beard, or scrunch facial hair in fists to accentuate curl. Use up to three times a day as needed. All natural beard balms containing shea butter and beeswax can be left in until you wash your beard. Beard balms containing petroleum jelly should be rinsed out nightly to avoid damage to facial hair.
