Rule #8 Then Add Character
There’s no guarantee that at the end of Movember you’ll be keeping your beard. But if you love it, now you need to decide what it will look like for the long haul. “Choosing the right long-term beard style is based on the lengthiness of your hair, shape of your face, and your specific facial hair type,” says Hall. Coarse and curly are going to require different maintenance than naturally straight or wavy hair. Fuller beards require the least amount of maintenance, but it can take up to four months to reach this status, says Hall. Want the full look without the wait? “A trick that helps give flare to this style is growing out your ‘under beard,’ ” he says. “This makes your beard look fuller while requiring less maintenance for hair under your chin and neck, two very sensitive areas that are susceptible to skin irritation and razor bumps.” And finally, when in doubt, ask your barber.
