How to groom a beard 101

Dive into the art of beard grooming. Like Banksy looking at a crumbling brick wall, you should be inspired by the unkempt beard. Look past the fly aways, past the patch, and see potential. Whether you're rocking a full mane or a small chin-chilla, consistent grooming is key to keeping your face foliage looking sharp.

Look within your beard scruff.

You must start by understanding your beard. Your facial hair has its own personality, its own quirks, and its own stubbornness, but all beards can be tamed. Whether you’re blessed with a thick forest or rocking a patchy shrub, every whisker matters. While you may have big goals for your facial hair, it’s important to let the beard define itself, at first. Let it go where it wants to grow, then work your way back.

Tools of the trade for beard grooming.

With a slew of professional-grade tools and formulations, MANSCAPED® has everything you need to create your own home beard barbershop. You can make it easy on yourself by grabbing The Beard Hedger™ Pro Kit. From trim to treatment, this is the complete beard maintenance kit for the modern gentleman. Or maybe you want to build your own kit piece by piece. Here’s the breakdown.

  • The Beard Hedger™: A premium beard-sculpting machine with enough power and precision to craft your style in a single swipe.
  • The Plow® 2.0: A traditional single-blade razor for a skin-close look or edge cleanup.
  • The Handyman™: Our dual-action compact foil shaver, designed for quick touch-ups away from home.
  • Beard Shampoo: Kick the grit from your beard with a shampoo that helps cleanse and hydrate your burly bristles.
  • Beard Conditioner: Pamper your beard with nourishing oils and antioxidants that rehydrate hair and leave you feeling silky-soft.
  • Beard Oil: Think of beard oil as the elixir of life for your facial fuzz. It moisturizes, it softens, it gives your beard that irresistible sheen.
  • Beard Balm: Whip your beard into shape with a rich pomade that keeps you looking well-groomed from sun-up to get-down.
  • Beard Comb, Brush, and Scissors: The finishing touches of a beautiful beard. Tighten up with detailing scissors then brush it out for a precise clean look.

Optimize your beard grooming and maintenance routine.

“Again. Again.”—Herb Brooks, telling you how often to take care of your beard.

The perfect beard isn’t a miracle, it just takes a ton of commitment and a steady routine. Grooming your beard is like maintaining a garden—it requires love, care, and Zen. So much Zen. Do these steps daily and you’ll be well on your way to that impressive beard you’ve been waiting for.

  1. Wash your beard: Your beard needs a bath. Use a mild Beard Shampoo to cleanse away the dirt and grime. Follow that up with Beard Conditioner to leave it feeling silky and easy to work with. Two full-service washes a week should do the trick.
  2. Oil up: After washing, it’s time to show your beard some love. Apply a few drops of Beard Oil to your palms and massage it into the thicket. Not only does it moisturize your skin, but it also helps prevent that dreaded beard itch.
  3. Keep it combing: Grab your Beard Comb and start untangling those knots. Comb in the direction of hair growth to avoid any unnecessary tugging. This step not only keeps your beard looking neat but also distributes the oil evenly and gives you a good starting canvas for your trim.
  4. It’s trimming time: Whether you’re going for a shorter style or simply cleaning up, it’s finally time to pull out The Beard Hedger™ Pro. Use the intuitive zoom wheel to choose from 20 different lengths settings (in .5mm–10mm increments) so you can trim anything from a lumberjack ‘stache to stubble. Start with a longer setting and work your way down until you reach your desired length.
  5. Clean up the neck: When your beard is ideal, use The Plow® 2.0 or The Handyman™ to take off all the excess shadow from your neck or high cheeks. This is an essential step to defining your jawline, beard shape, and ultimately looking like you put some effort into your trim.
  6. Final touches: Once you’ve tamed the mane, it’s time for the finishing touches. Use a pair of scissors to snip away any stray hairs and shape your beard to perfection. Brush out your final look with the Beard Brush, moisturizing and perfecting your style with our Beard Balm.

Some extra tips for beard care issues that you might be struggling with.

Even the most majestic beards encounter some snags. Here are a few common issues and the tools to fix them.

  1. Beardruff: If it’s snowing from your scruff simply up your beard oil game and exfoliate your skin regularly to get rid of the flake.
  2. Patchy beard: Your face is that way for a reason, embrace what you’ve got and find a style that works with it. Opt for a shorter style, mustache, or goatee to minimize the contrast.
  3. Beard itch: Nothing ruins your day like a relentless itch. Combat it with regular washing, moisturizing, and as always, a bit of beard oil.

Trust the process.

If it sounds like a lot, don’t worry. Just like growing a beard, maintaining it takes a little time and patience. Plus, there’s The Beard Hedger™ Pro Kit to make it easy. The results will come, just trust your tools, and trust the process. And if all else fails, remember; it’s the beard on the inside that counts.
