How to Grow and Maintain the Perfect Defined Beard
Growing a defined beard is all about clean lines, precision, and maintenance. Follow these steps to get the look.
1. Grow out your facial hair.
A defined beard should be on the shorter side (no longer than 1.5-2” in length) and uniform throughout. If you’re starting from a clean-shaven face, you’ll probably need anywhere between 1-2 months to get a full, uniform beard. If you struggle with patchiness or have trouble growing out your facial hair, try this beard growth kit that contains growth supplements as well as a growth serum.
2. Keep it trimmed.
Even as you’re growing out your beard, you’ll want to keep it trimmed and maintained. A shaping tool will be your best friend for this style. It’s all about clean lines and edges. Use the shaping tool along with a trimmer or razor to get an angled or curved line along your cheeks, as well as to remove the hair along your neckline. If you have a mustache, use trimming scissors to make sure it stays right at the lipline.
3. Moisturize and hydrate.
A defined beard should be the exact opposite of scraggly. This means you’ll need to moisturize your face and hair to prevent dry, brittle hair or beard dandruff. This set contains everything you need to maintain a defined beard: a shaping tool, beard oil, and beard balm to smooth and hydrate your beard.
