How to grow a hipster beard
The first thing you need is definitely a Trimming. This tool is great and you should take a professional one, to define the best beard especially in the most difficult to reach places.
You will also need to keep some areas of your face well shaved. There is nothing better than a great one freehand razor.
Before telling you what to do to grow a hipster beard you have to make yours what is one of the most famous and beautiful proverbs: "patience is the virtue of the strong".
You can't achieve a perfect and beautiful look in five minutes. You need to be very patient, your beard needs time to grow and reach its peak. Take into account already that it can take 6 months to a year!
Almost like a long session of Buddhist meditation, you can take the time of growth to decide which style you like best and which best fits your facial features.
So what to do to grow a beard?
STOP OF RADERTI
It seems a pretty obvious thing to me, but I want to be really precise and not miss any points. Besides, I really want this to be the definitive hipster beard guide.
Yes, stop shaving. But before doing so, I advise you to shave yourself for the last time. You can think of doing it with a great freehand razor for example. By doing this you will be sure to have a perfectly homogeneous regrowth all over your face.
In the event that you never shave to zero and you already have a beard, the solution could be to "level it" and you have various possibilities: you can use a good beard trimmer or equip yourself with excellent scissors and go there with precision freehand.
However, my advice remains that of total shaving, which allows the hair to grow back stronger and stronger.
WAIT 4 or 6 WEEKS
Here the regrowth factor comes into play which is absolutely personal and depends on certain factors, such as testosterone. But let's say that in 4 or 6 weeks, to average, you should have a beard that fills your face evenly.
During this time you must constantly check that the growth is even on the whole face. It can happen to have areas with more or less slow growth than others. In this phase the best tool to use is the scissors accompanied by a comb to take good measurements and not make mistakes.
KEEP THE CLEAN NECK
What you have to do even during the 4 or 6 weeks of waiting is to always shave the hair on your neck. You must identify the line from which the beard wants you to start growing. The simple trick is to look at yourself in the mirror. As you will see, your neck naturally bends to a certain height. That is the line under which to shave everything.
Another trick of the trade is to shave from two fingers above the Adam's apple. A sort of standard measure that guarantees a good result regardless.
My advice is to follow the natural fold of the neck. It is easy to follow and is usually quite straight and precise.
This phase is essential to keep the cut clean while waiting for the real hipster beard. Once the beard is long enough to cover the neck, only then can you possibly think of stopping it.
CARE THE BARBA SINCE THE BEGINNING
Waiting for 4 or 6 weeks does not mean taking it easy. At the end of this time the beard will be almost 1 centimeter and a half long. It is more than enough to start treating it properly!
You absolutely have to get hold of specific products, designed specifically for the beard. I'm talking about shampoo to wash it, brush or comb to comb it, oils and creams to soften and moisturize, but the important thing is not to make mistakes.
The shampoo for hair does not work as the specific one for the beard. My opinion is that the beard is a serious thing and consequently is treated seriously.
On the market you will find many items for beard care. Among other things, it is necessary to avoid the itching that will be very normal during the early stages.
Wash your beard and even start combing it every day.
START DEFINING THE DETAILS
After a month or so, with an inch-and-a-half beard, you can begin to refine the points where it needs to be adjusted.
There are areas where the beard must be left to grow: around the mouth, the lower part of the cheeks and along the profile of the chin. Everything else can be shortened or "kept at bay".
Resist the temptation to go and pass the machine in these areas. Rather concentrated on the other points of the face. Keep an eye on the neck, the line of the sideburns, the area on the sides of the mouth and the cheeks so as to eliminate those totally superfluous hairs.
This is nothing but the starting point for defining the contours of the perfect hipster beard. Dedicate yourself to this every day and your look will always be clean.
ADAPT THE BEARD TO YOUR FACE
Now that the beard starts to get longer, you have to take the scissors, the comb and start shaping the beard so that it is perfect for your face.
The beard must absolutely take into account your facial features.
For example, if you have a long face, keep the hairs on the chin slightly shorter than those on the sides so as to round the features. On the contrary, if you have a wider or rounder face, a longer beard on your chin will tend to lengthen it.
I recommend the calm: take the necessary time and do not rush. Use sharp scissors to make the finishing as precise and as symmetrical as possible.
Always keep your beard washed and comb it every day in the direction in which you want it to fall, so as to begin to get it used to the final look.
CONTINUE ON THIS ROAD
In less than no time, carefully following these steps, you'll find yourself with a long beard. From this moment on, all you have to do is define the style you prefer.
The secret to keeping the beard always full and with that uncultured look that makes you more hipster is the use of the comb. This does nothing but inflate it and therefore make it more voluminous.
The touch of class is in the handlebar mustache. You can also think of buying good wax to use it on the tips and curl it for the ultimate look.
ADMIRED TO THE MIRROR
All you have to do is look at your accomplished work of art. But don't spend too much time in the mirror, please. Get out, rather, and show off with your perfect hipster beard.
