Beards are a beautiful gift of nature for men and if kept properly, they can be your ultimate fashion statement.

Unfortunatelyvery few people seem to care about keeping their beard game strong and even if they do, most people don’t know the dos and don’ts when it comes to taking good care of your beard. And if you feel like you may be a part of that crowd, we’re here to help. Here are a few things that you must consider when working on your beard.

No clean-shaved necks

Keep the cheeks in check! 

As the time passes, our beards have a habit of creeping their way towards our eyes as if they are trying to embrace the ape roots. Trimming your hair from the top is very important to give a clean look. Don’t get too aggressive though or you might end up looking like a bartender at a gay bar from the 80s.

While this may seem like a great idea, believe it or not, it is probably the worst thing you can do to your beard. Having a clear chin may seem like it gives you a strong jaw, but in reality, it only makes you look stupid – yes, there is no other word for it. Buy a good trimming kit by Remington. Trim the hair as short as you like but NEVER go for a clean shave.

Hands off the dyes

Always carry a comb

The best thing about beards is that each one is unique. No two beards are ever naturally the same, especially in terms of color. There are always two or three different shades in each beard in their own unique proportion. The moment you dye it, it stops looking like a beard and starts looking like a prop.

No matter how regularly you try to groom your beard, there will always be a hair or two trying to go rouge. There often comes a time when your beard kit won’t be accessible to you and to avoid having antennas popping out of your face, keep a small beard comb with you at all times. One quick brush is all you need to keep things in check. And yes, it DOES work.
