Tips on Growing A Sexy Beard! Men are absolutely paying more attention to grooming and skin care. Fellas your success in growing a beard depends on your commitment and your genetic makeup.
Some men are blessed with the ability to sprout a beard in a few short weeks while others may need to spend months to get the desired look.
Unfortunately, there isn’t much you can do in terms of genetics. But with commitment you can stick through the challenging stages to see how things turn out. And, if it doesn’t work out, you can shave it off in a few minutes.
So if you want to grow your sexy beard make the commitment to yourself to stick with it for at least 8 weeks. This will give you enough time to grow out a decent beard, and for you to become accustomed to maintaining it.
One of the biggest mistakes men make is attempting to shape/trim their beard too soon. It’s best to allow 4 – 6 weeks of growth before attempting to shape the beard. Even if you’re only planning to grow a goatee, chin curtain, or mustache it’s best to store your razor and allow your facial hair to flourish.
After the first month it’s time to shape your beard. Sometimes it makes sense to locate a barber that is familiar with shaping beards. If that’s not an option then there are two areas that you need to focus on:
Neck Line – Generally speaking you want the bottom of your beard to extend past your jaw bone by an inch or two.
If you take two fingers and lay them against the bottom of your jaw bone, that is where your beard should end.
In addition the back of the beard should extend straight down from the back of your sideburns.
Cheek Line – The rule of thumb is to leave the cheek line to grow naturally without shaping.
Many beards have been ruined because men feel the compulsion to trim the cheek line. Don’t do it!
Don’t despair if you make a mistake trimming your sexy beard! Simply let the area grow out without shaving and it will soon fill in again. If the mistake is pretty visible another option is to trim down the length of the hairs for your entire beard and begin growing again.
