How to Grow a Beard like Jason Statham
The 5 o’clock stubble beard ranks highly among the best beard styles, as it is simple and easy to maintain.
You are only required to grow your beard to about 3-4 mm. However, the growth rate will largely depend on your genetics.
You should also massage the skin around your beard to enhance circulation of blood and oxygen to your face for faster beard growth.
Remember to comb your beard regularly using top-rated beard combs to prevent patchy facial hair growth.
Styling and Maintaining 5 o’clock Stubble Beard
Trimming and shaping your stubble is the most delicate part, as it involves shaving off the patchy areas.
If you are naturally bestowed with an abundance of hair follicles, you should expect your facial hair to grow in the most unusual places, including Adam’s apple and way below the neckline.
Apply shaving gel or oil on your chin, neck, sideburns and under the ears, then use an adjustable stubble trimmer to shave your facial hair to 0.5 mm for a shorter shadow or 2 mm for longer stubble.
Once you have achieved your desired length, use a straight razor to remove unwanted patches. Shave around the neckline to achieve a nice edge for a more enhanced stubble look.
You may have to shave at least two to three times a week to maintain your stubble and prevent a scruffy beard.
