Equally as effective as a beard trimmer, if perhaps a little unwieldy, is a standard set of hair clippers. If you already have these at home, feel free to try them out before buying a dedicated beard trimmer. With a traditional blade, the risk of butchering your beard is just too high for my personal comfort level. This can be a great addition to regular washes, helping to remove beard flakes and invigorate the skin.
This tool is going to be invaluable to those of you who are used to frequent shaving and exfoliation. The shaving brush will definitely help ease the transition.

You can also use a hair dryer to straighten your beard when it is shorter. These steps are the ones that I feel are most essential to maintaining the health and appearance of my beard, while also being speedy enough to be a practical part of my grooming routine. I wash my beard about every other day and on the days in between, I just thoroughly rinse and massage my beard and face under the shower.
However, I do wash my mustache and area around my mouth with face wash on a daily basis. I find it best to apply beard oil right after a shower when the hairs are softened and primed to accept the product. This helps tremendously with maintaining a respectable appearance with a longer beard. If I just oil and let my beard dry naturally, it crinkles up and looks much more unkempt. This step really only applies to longer and especially curly beards, since shorter hairs will be much less willing to change shape.
This step helps big time in cutting down on the number of strays I have to trim. Also, since the same amount of beard hair is being compressed into a smaller package, it helps tremendously with making it appear more full and dense. So as soon as it was long enough, I started training my mustache into a classic handlebar shape. After my shower, I use a hairdryer on high to shape my mustache from the center out. The heat makes the hairs nice and pliable.
After I have the general shape established with a hairdryer, I use a beeswax-based mustache wax to add additional control and all-day hold. I would advise you to line up your neck and cheek line at about the same frequency as you would shave your entire face. If your beard grows extremely fast and heavy, daily or every other day would be best, but if your beard growth is lighter and slower, twice per week will be fine. This sporting life. Stage and screen.
Birds and the bees. Martin Brodetsky, Oxford England An analysis of fashion pictures shows that beardlessness began among young men in the 's. World War I absolutely killed them off except among the French and psychoanalysists since beards harbored lice. Oddly, among the French, WWI soldiers were called the "bearded ones" for the long beards they grew in the trenchs.
While I don't know much about fashion in the intervening years, I'd guess beards probably went in and out of style every few generations, just as they do now. As for why men started shaving in the first place - perhaps they wanted to look younger? It seems to me that beards are most common now among the few segments of society that still value age and experience university professors, for instance , while most other men tend to cultivate the boyish look. So Booger Beard , I salute you.
In you, I hope to find a future of silly, gross, funny, magical, weirdo titles.
Sometimes the funny needs a shot in the arm as well. She has served on Newbery, written for Horn Book, and has done other lovely little things that she'd love to tell you about but that she's sure you'd find more interesting to hear of in person.
