Beard Grooming Tips

  • Just like your hair, wash and shampoo your beard regularly. A mild shampoo is easier on your skin.
  • After shampooing, you may use a conditioner. Be sure to rinse thoroughly.
  • Gently pat and wipe your beard dry with a towel.
  • Comb your beard and mustache with a wide-toothed comb to remove tangles.
Whether you are new at sporting a beard, or an old hand at growing facial hair and you are just looking for a few tips to help you keep your beard neater, finding the best way to shape a beard will keep you looking well groomed and feeling great. At the Gentleman's Beard Club we will proudly give you beard grooming tips on the spot.The truth is however, that depending on the style and length of the beard your trimming technique will vary slightly.

Shaping a Long Beard
If you are sporting a long fuller beard, then trimming is going to be slightly different than trimming a short beard. For one thing, most trimmers are going to have a long enough setting to allow you to run the tool over your beard to keep it the required length.

This means that you will need to use a fine tooth comb and either a pair of sharp barber scissors or your trimmer in combination to properly trim that beard. If you follow these steps, then you will increase your chances of success.

  • Comb your beard neatly following the way the hair grows.
  • Use the scissors to snip off those wild hairs that stick out and simply won’t lay down.
  • Once you have your beard lying down properly, move the comb to the side of the beard just below your ear, and comb a small portion of hair so that a small amount shows through the teeth of the comb.
  • Using either your scissors or a beard trimmer, cut off the hair that remains showing through the comb’s teeth (You will be using the teeth of the comb as a guide.)

Continue to repeat this process working down to the center of your beard.

  • Move to the other side of your head and repeat the process.
  • Make sure you clip off the same amount of hair each time.
  • Do the same down the center of your beard.
  • Once you have completed trimming your beard, comb it again and clean up any stray hairs that have been missed to ensure that you have an even trim.
