When it comes to growing a beard, genetics can be a pain. How are you supposed to work with hair that simply won’t grow?
Fear no more. The team at Life, Tailored and MySkin have put together this infographic with everything you need to know about facial hair. Not only can you make that pesky stubble become a full-fledged beard, but you can also make your beard enviable regardless of your genetic gifts.
I’m no beard pro, but I appreciate a nice one when I see it. The biggest trick? Get to know your utensils: trimming, shaving, and styling are more effective when you know what you’re doing. If you want a pencil mustache à la John Waters, use the smallest trimmer you can find. For casual stubble, trim with a hair trimmer instead of shaving first, then tidy up with a razor. You get the drill.
A good beard isn’t necessarily just a full one. If you’re creative, you can have enviable facial hair even if you don’t have much to work with. If you’re a thin mustache kind of guy, play with it! If your hair only grows on the sides of your face, rock those sideburns like a boss! No hair, no problem. A clean-shaven face is still a classic choice.
