You’d be forgiven for thinking that beards were low-maintenance grooming. Surely it’s easier and less faff than shaving, right? Simply roll out of bed each morning and let nature take its course, and sooner or later that five o’clock shadow will turn into a magnificent and lush beard. Er, wrong.
Is it for me?
Beards take just as much upkeep as the hair on your head - yes, they do need to be washed, and dare we say - exfoliated. Given the proximity to your mouth, a thorough cleaning will be needed regularly to keep your pride and joy scrupulously clean.
Then, there’s the shaping. Your hair might be naturally curly, or poker straight. It may grow only in tufts, or thickly all over. Yet one thing is for certain - every fella with a beard needs to get it shaped. A pro beard trimmer will be able to tell you exactly how to wear your beard to make the most of your features - and trim it into shape for you.
