Map Your Plan

How you manage your facial hair often says more about you than what you’re wearing. It’s easy to figure out the beard style you want, but it’s a whole other deal to make it happen. Once that four week beard-growing period is up, it’s time to take stock of what you’re working with.

  • Decide on your beard’s shape and length before making a cut.
  • If you’ve got a patchy beard, keeping your style short gives it a fuller appearance.
  • If you have areas where hair doesn’t grow, choose a style that doesn’t need hair there.
  • Notice the direction your hair grows. Facial hair usually grows in multiple directions. You might want to avoid having to fight it with creams and waxes. Sometimes, it helps to comb it in the direction you want it to go while it’s growing. If it’s too much of a battle, adjust your style.
  • If hassle-free eating is important, choose a mustache style that doesn’t hang below your lip. A bushy beard that poofs out is going to be a great safety net for anything that falls out of your mouth.
  • Unless you’re going to make time for grooming every day, choose a beard style that doesn’t need a lot of upkeep.
  • Consider visiting a professional barber so they can shape your beard for you. Get their opinion on care and maintenance. One of the best ways to find a good barber is to look for someone with a great beard.

If you’re going to wear facial hair, you need to be all in. It takes consistency with trimming and grooming to keep your beard shaped and looking great.
