This week, the male grooming experts at Mavericks Barbershop Letterkenny share some top tips for a fantastic festive beard:
Well gents the Christmas party is just around the corner, it’s time to up the game!!!
No point in looking after the rest of the package if your beard isn’t at its best.
Yes, you can always rely on the Mavericks to do a top job for you, but we want you to have the knowledge to do a bit yourself between trims!
To get a full rundown on how to look after your particular beard, call into us, but to get you started here is a few basics:
So if you are sporting a beard, as is increasingly fashionable, then here are a few tips to help you make sure that it is proudly displayed and well groomed rather than looking either shabby or butchered.
The overall effect of a beard or stubble should be that it looks natural yet tidy and it should not look out of place in a professional setting.
Try and keep the shape as natural as possible. Work with your beard, each beard is unique and embrace the shape of your beard, its thickness etc, do not try to force your beard to look like another one you’ve seen.
If you are defining the beard, it is virtually impossible to get sharp lines yourself, we recommend going to you barber to “service” your beard app once a month and then maintain it thereafter yourself.
There is no real guide to what the length of your beard hair should be, as this depends on your overall face shape and look you’re trying to achieve. However, make sure it is tidy, and that it tapers off nicely, particularly at the side of the face as it comes up to meet your hair.
Also do not be disappoint if you do not seem to be able to grow a long beard. Once you notice your beard hair falling out and replacing itself, that is the longest length your beard will achieve.
For your own sake, please, please use beard oil. Beard oil is not a fad.
When you grow a beard there is not enough moisture produced in your beard hair. So the beard begins to rob this moisture of your skin, both end up insufficiently moisturised, and beard oil solves this. There are various other good reason to use it but this is paramount. Nobody wants to have a dry flaky face on them!
