How to Grow Rick Ross’s Beard
Step One: Let it Grow
The most notable feature of Rick Ross’s beard is how full it is. We’re not talking patchy scruff here; it is a full on, grown out beard.
This doesn’t come naturally for everyone, but there are a few tips and tricks you can follow to achieve greatness. So, how do you grow a thicker beard?
First, make sure you are keeping your facial hair well groomed while you grow it out. This means washing your beard every day to make sure it is free of trapped dirt, oils, debris or anything else you wouldn’t want in there.
You can use a face wash for this step if your facial hair is very short. You can also shampoo your beard like you would with the hair on your head.
Next, make sure you are exfoliating the skin underneath your beard once or twice a week. This keeps your face clear of dead skin that could slow down or prevent hair growth.
The amount of time it takes to grow a beard the length of Rick Ross’s is different for everyone. Don’t get discouraged if you don’t have a beard worthy of everyone’s favorite Wingstop owner in just a week. Your patience will be rewarded.
Step Two: Rick Ross Grooming Techniques
While you’re growing your beard out, make sure you trim it regularly.
Once you’ve begun to let your beard grow a little bit, you may notice that it’s starting to become unruly or more difficult to manage than it was when it was shorter.
An easy way to fix that is with beard styling products like beard oil or beard balm. These products are both hydrating and good for styling, which makes them a convenient way to take care of your beard’s health while keeping it soft and manageable throughout the day.
When you’ve finally reached the beard length you’ve desired, it’s time for step three.
Step Three: Find Your Inner Rick Ross
When you’ve achieved several inches in length on your beard, and you’ve grown it out to your desired fullness, it’s time to shape and style.
First, run your comb through your beard to make sure it is tangle free and won’t snag on your trimmer.
If you’re having difficulty with this step, run a very small amount of beard oil through your facial hair to help ease up any tangles.
Next, grab your clippers. Remember – it’s better to start slow when shaping your beard. You can always take more off, but once you trim hair away, you can’t get it back.
Start shaping your beard in a round U-shape. Keep more hair around the lower parts of your cheeks and chin than on the higher parts of your face. If you need assistance, use your beard shaping tool as a guide.
Don’t forget to trim a neckline underneath your chin. This line should be very clean and smooth, so be sure to go slow.
Once you’ve achieved the shape you desire, the final step is to wear your new beard with pride whether you’re headed to the top of the hip hop charts or just to the grocery store. Your new beard is perfect for all occasions.
