When many guys grow a beard, they think they have finally found the key to doing absolutely nothing when it comes to bathroom maintenance. Letting the beard grow is not a get-out-of-jail-free card for neglecting any type of maintenance.
In order to pull off a classy beard, you need to take a few things into consideration to pulling it off. The best part, however, is we already have all the information here that you will ever need to answer the age-old question of:
What is the best strategy for growing a classy beard?
Take a look around the internet at some guys sporting classy beards and imagine yourself in their shoes. If this appeals to you, great, let’s move on to following steps.
Take a look at some alternative beard styles and ask yourself which one you can see yourself sporting. If you chose a trimmed full beard, congratulations, you are not too old to still be classy and a beard will certainly be a huge improvement.
If you have sensitive skin and you realize in a few weeks the facial hair is going to itch, choose a style that has a very high neckline, closer to the jaw so you can still shave below the hairline. It just is not classy at all to be scratching yourself in public.
If you are a hairy man, you will need to choose a cheek line that you can shave above or you lose the classy look.
If you are new to the beard game or very young, start shaving twice a day before growing the beard to get your face ready. The half-strung beard is certainly worse that having no beard at all.
Open up the wallet and invest in a decent beard trimmer. While you are shopping online, purchase a fine-tooth beard comb too. Stay classy by only using the beard comb in private. Never carry the comb with you when out in public or you lose your reputation.
Once you start letting the beard grow, it is going to be rough for a few week. Patches need to slowly fill in, and you will certainly be berated by your mom to please shave so she can she that baby face she has loved since the day you were born. Do not fall for her tactics.
