Beards




Timing is Key:

There is a time when you first start to grow your beard where the hairs are emerging rather unevenly and you are not left with the most attractive of looks. The best option would be to use an electric shaver to trim the longer patches of your beard so you are left with an even length across your face. This will slow down the growth of the beard; however it will improve overall appearance throughout the first few weeks.

Face Shape:

Throughout the year, beards have bloomed in popularity. Celebrities including Ryan Gosling, Simon Cowell, Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman have all showcased various styles of beards. You can make sure your beard compliments the shape of your face before styling it.

1. Square - Men with square faces should opt for styles that make their faces appear more slender. The best style for this facial shape is a light but all-over beard; this will mean you are constantly trimming your beard with your electric shaver to ensure it stays a suitable length.

2. Round - In order to add shape to the face, it is important to ensure the length of the hair on your chin is longer than the sides. Try to avoid bushy sideburns and keep the sides of the beard short.

3. Triangular - Men with triangular-shaped faces tend to have very pointed chins. Having a longer, fuller beard will make these faces appear more masculine by adding weight along the jaw line and chin.

Moustache


Grooming

Grooming is everything, regardless of the style. By keeping your moustache well-trimmed, hydrated and smooth, you stop it from becoming messy and keep it smart.

Top Tips: Wash your moustache with warm water and shampoo before using a fine-toothed comb to detangle your facial hair and keep it even. Use small moustache scissors to trim, removing as much as you like and slowly begin to work up towards your nose, cutting thicker areas as you go. Finally, use electric clippers to tidy the sides.

Styling

After you've trimmed your facial hair, start looking into the styling. It's vitally important to keep your moustache moisturised in order to make styling easier.

Top Tips: Apply a small amount of oil or wax to your moustache and work it through the hair, pinching and twisting the sections that you want to style.


Shaping

The easiest way to shape your moustache is through shaving. Depending on the length of your facial hair, there are certain procedures you should take in order to shave around the unwanted hair in order to give your moustache the desired shape.

Top Tips: Trim your moustache with small scissors to make it more manageable and easier to shave. Using some pre-shave oil, moisturise the facial hair in preparation before using an electric razor to carve out your look. Apply some shaving cream and use a manual razor to rid the remaining stubble before finishing off with some post-shave balm to keep your skin hydrated.


My Top Picks!

The Handlebar



Sophistication personified, the handlebar may be one of the hardest styles to pull off, but if done correctly – the rewards are high.

The Pencil Tash



From the complex to the simple, the pencil moustache is the easiest to style and maintain. A more laid back approach – the pencil tash is perfect for those who want facial hair that isn't going to be the centre of attention.

Scruffy



This is perfect for those who want to maintain a slightly edgier look. This is slightly less well kept, but it is still important to make sure you don't let it overgrow by using the techniques mentioned above. As soon as that beard begins to creep higher up your face, It can soon become incredibly untidy.
