How to Grow It Out

Brad Pitt didn’t get anywhere in the facial hair game without a little bit of length on his side. To get the results you’re looking for, don’t be afraid to just spend some time growing out what you’ve got.

Before you can shape and style your new Brad Pitt beard, you’re going to need something to work with.

Do you have a hard time growing your beard to be as long and luscious as you’d like? Maybe you’d like to grow a thicker beard?

Do yourself a favor and invest in good beard oil. While no oil or topical product is able to physically speed up how quickly your hair grows, a beard oil will keep your facial hair feeling hydrated and strong.

Strong beards mean less breakage, which will make your beard appear thicker and longer, even while you’re still growing it out. The best beard oil can also double as styling products and will leave your beard looking shiny and tame.

How to Keep It Clean

Brad Pitt didn’t become the bearded icon that he is today by having a dirty beard. Make sure to wash your beard daily to reduce the amount of bacteria that may be trapped in the hair.

The hair on your face is similar to the hair on your head, so feel free to shampoo and condition your beard with non-irritating, gentle beard shampoos.

Exfoliating a few times a week will also help you eliminate trapped, dead skin. Keeping your beard clean and washed will get rid of a patchy beard and help your facial hair grow in more evenly.

Tools Needed to Maintain

Now that you’re on your way to a long, full and moisturized beard, you’ve got the basics down. However, anyone can master a great standard beard.

We’re going for a Brad Pitt beard. Brad’s beard relies a lot on a strong shape, and to achieve that, you’ll need some tools.

A few basic tools will complete your collection: a new beard shaper, a beard comb and a beard trimmer should do the trick.

A beard shaper will help you create and maintain the strong shape of the hair on your cheeks.

A beard comb may seem less purposeful than a beard shaper, but a beard comb is an essential tool to maintaining a strong beard style and one of the most popular beard styles.

Top beard combs are usually made of wood and will smooth the hair without irritating your skin. Finally, beard trimmer with different guards will help you know how to trim a beard without getting too close to your skin.

Grooming and Styling Tips

Finally – you’ve done all the preparation, and the final look is in reach. To get Brad’s iconic look, start by trimming down the hair on your cheeks, using your beard guide, while leaving your chin and mustache long.

We recommend trimming the beard on your cheeks down to about half an inch. That extra length on your chin and mustache is what will make people think of Brad Pitt when they see your brand-new beard.

Make sure to trim your beard regularly to maintain that length, and don’t be afraid to have a little fun with it. Brad has been seen with a braided beard, a beaded beard, and everything in between.

We can’t all be Brad Pitt, but we can definitely all achieve his beard. Take these tips and go grow the beard of your dreams with confidence.
