Beard Care

Main Street Barber Shop Q4 2022pic

Men’s fashion trends come and go, but one thing has stayed throughout the years: beards! From a little bit of facial hair to a full-grown beard, a well-groomed beard can do wonders to accentuate a man’s facial features. However, all of this relies on the level of beard care and maintenance you put in to take care of your facial hair.

Whether you’re a seasoned beard wearer or new to the world of facial hair, it’s essential that you know some of the basics of beard care to tame and style your beard. Look at some of our best beard care tips:

  • The right beard products can make all the difference. You’ll want products that keep your facial hair healthy, moisturized, and properly cleaned. Depending on your beard and hair type, this may include beard oils, beard balms, conditioner sprays, and creams. And don’t neglect the tools you use, either! You’ll want a high-quality beard trimmer and brush to help tame your facial hair. Consult with your barber if you need any recommendations.
  • Beard Shape. The shape of your beard can truly define the shape of your face, so you’ll want to pay extra attention to maintaining the shape of your beard. Consider your face shape to decide the best shape for you, then take care of your sideburns, neckline, and the area around your lips to ensure that the shape isn’t getting too scruffy.
  • Make sure you brush all your beard hair in the same direction. This is especially important when trimming beard hair, as brushing in the same direction will guarantee that hairs are all the same length. Brushing your beard will also ensure the health of your hair, as brushing will disperse your hair’s natural oils throughout your entire beard.
  • There are many healthy reasons to quit smoking and growing your beard hair is one of them. Smoking tobacco products is linked to hair loss and slower hair growth, which can hinder the development and health of your beard. If maintaining the health of your beard is important to you, then consider quitting and avoiding smoking.
  • Maintaining a healthy diet is also essential to your general hair care. Try eating foods that are rich in vitamin D to help with your hair follicles, like fish and eggs. You’ll also want to maintain a good skincare routine to enhance your overall complexion underneath your facial hair. Wash your face at least twice a day and exfoliate the skin once or twice a week. You’ll also need a daily moisturizer to help keep your skin hydrated.
