Summer has arrived! And, sporting a beard is one of the biggest trends now. Want to sport a healthy beard? Abide by a couple of indispensable trimming and grooming tips. Confused? Don’t stress, we have you covered....
Growing a beard for the first time? It’s best recommended to get professional help. If you prefer to do it by yourself, invest in the right tools. Pick up a good trimmer, with attachable grades to achieve the desired length. You also need beard balm and beard oil, to nourish the skin underneath. This will help to style your beard and also prevent your skin from drying and flaking.
Always start with the longer length grade. Beginners can trim their beard and moustache one length, which gives way to less chances of messing it up. Right trimming is the key. Use a three-way mirror for perfection.
Never trim a wet beard or mustache, as there are chances of getting rid of the length more than what’s required.
If you plan on growing a moustache, also learn to twirl it in a right way. Do not go by random online blogs. A local stylist is your best bet to take guidance from.
Work on your beard downwards first and then across. Trim it short on the hair lines which makes it look natural. Comb it in a preferred beard style and cut accordingly in order to achieve precision.
Never skip a daily face cleanser. Use a shampoo and a conditioner on your beard every alternate day. Using a sun protection moisturiser is a must.
