Beards are perhaps the most versatile men’s accessory in the game and they’re a no-brainer for the modern man. Take a ‘try it once and see if you like it’ approach to this trend and find a bearded look that best suits you. From a shadow of scruff to a full-on hipster variety, there is a style for everyone. And if you find that facial hair simply isn’t for you, all you have to do is shave it off.
Beards Are Having a Moment
Everyone from major athletes to celebrities and even your barber himself is having a beard moment and for good reason, too. Facial hair has the potential to transform your face in a number of ways. Thicken your facial strands for a classically masculine look or play with hard edges to create the appearance of a sharp jawline where there isn’t one. Style your beard, let it grow freely, or find a happy medium that fits your style and needs. Beards are as versatile as they are trendy and that’s half the beauty of this no-fail accessory.
3 Must-Have Products for Beard Grooming
Whether you’re having trouble growing your beard or you just want to maximize the hair that you have, here are three must-have products you need for your grooming routine.
Shampoo & Conditioner
We cannot stress enough how important it is to keep your beard clean. Your beard is in the line of fire for everything you eat throughout the day and it’s important to routinely give it a good wash. We suggest using Dove Men+Care Hydration Fuel 2-in-1 Fortifying Shampoo+Conditioner (for the softest beard you’ve ever had). Plump up your strands and give the illusion of thick and dense facial hair.
As far as styling goes, we suggest a classic: AXE Clean Cut Look: Classic Pomade is the ideal consistency for guys with longer beards. Run a dime-sized amount through your hair and use your fingers to comb and shape your style. Add product as needed but remember the golden rule of styling products: less is more. You can always add more as needed.
