How To Grow A Full Beard
Moving into the stubble-level is one thing, but can you figure out how to grow a full beard? Facial hair on men, specifically a full beard, has always been a sign of prominence, wisdom, and leadership. Not many of us can grow a full beard. Want to join the legions of mighty, bearded men? Read on good sir.
Have this before getting a full beard:
- Good, beard-growing genetics
- Self confidence
- Clippers (or a razor will do)
- Don't grow a full beard before something important. Let's be real: no one at your sister's wedding wants to see that giant hair growing out of your chin. Regardless of how good it looks (we think so too) don't schedule your beard-growing before anything that will require a neat appearance. For example, funerals, job interviews, formal dinners, and meetings might not be the most prudent times.
- Stop shaving, completely. This is the key point to understand when growing a full beard. The whole point of letting the hair grow out is to let it reach its "natural" length. The transition period won't be easy though.
- Trim edges that grow out faster than others. For example, the neck and cheeks will probably have stray hairs that will make you look more like a hermit than a philosopher if your not careful. Trim these suckers so they don't ruin the overall vibe you're trying to give out while you grow a full beard. Typically, it shouldn't cost more than a few bucks to buy a razor at your nearest superstore.
- Persevere. Probably the hardest step, don't give into the itchiness and awkwardness you might feel while growing your manhood out. The beard is a nice accessory to any man's persona, but the transition stages can be quite irritating. Going on vacation, for example, might be the opportune time to grow a full beard out without fear of social reprise. The itchiness, however, will still be present.
It's important to understand that a full beard doesn't grow itself out. Mental discipline is a key factor to help you grow a full beard. Who cares what others think while you're growing it? They'll be complimenting you come a few more months of dedication.
