Some men find that growing facial hair isn't as easy as expected, whether it's because they don't know where to start or because they can't seem to grow much. If you fit into that category, don't give up hope. You can still go from smooth-faced to bearded with some perseverance and the help of this ultimate guide on growing your first beard and styling it once it's there.
Step 1: Stop Shaving
If you want a beard, stop shaving. If you want a mustache, stop shaving. If you want anything else, stop shaving and leave it alone until there is something worth shaving for. You can always shave the odd fuzz that pops up on your chin or neck if it's bothering you but don't shave any more than that.
Step 2: Wait it Out
Once you have grown a beard, it is time to wait it out. The most important thing about growing your first beard is patience. It will take anywhere from two weeks to four months for your first beard to grow. You need this amount of time for the hair follicles on your face to make enough hair so that you are not left with patches of bare skin or sparse patches of hair on your cheeks and chin. Our Beard Growth Kit is here to help!
Step 3: Trim the Neckline
Trimming the neckline is an essential step in beard grooming. This allows you to keep your facial hair at a uniform length and prevents it from spilling over into your shirt. A clean neckline also gives you a polished look when you wear a shirt without a tie, while an unkempt one will make it seem like you don't care about your appearance. When needing a trim, grab our Facial Hair Grooming Scissors.
Step 4: Shape it Up
Once you grow a beard for about a month, it is time to shape it. The best way to do this is by trimming your beard with a pair of shears and then using a dedicated beard comb and brush to style the beard. You can also use scissors or an electric trimmer for more precision.
Step 5: Take care of Your Beard
Beard grooming is an important part of growing a beard. Take care of your beard by giving it a good clean and keeping it soft when you use our beard wash and conditioner now in eucalyptus and peppermint scent. Just squeeze a pea-sized amount of our product into your hand, add water, and start massaging the beard area. Also, don't forget to moisturize!
