Men who want to let go of the beard should understand that the hair on the face can emphasize the merits of hiding some flaws (warts) of the "stronger sex" or "emphasize" the flaws of the human face.

To do this, you must have a standard hair clipper with a set of nozzles. Once a week you install a nozzle of the desired size (0 or 1), navigate through all the “vegetation” - and the beard is ready to fascinate the female sex.

How to care for a beard at home: mistakes beginners

The main mistake of a man who decided to grow facial hair is the wrong choice of beard type. Rarely, when a man grows a beard "just like that, nothing better to do." As a rule, the “stronger sex” beard grows to attract the attention of a specific woman, draw the attention of the collective to itself, express / emphasize its individuality, become more courageous / sexual. Or, as stylists are expressing themselves now, to assume the appearance of a “brutal alpha male.”

Having chosen the wrong type of beard, a man can take not a manly, but a stupid look, over which women / acquaintances will “giggle”, tease. What kind of man might like this?

Therefore, a man cannot simply “make a beard”; it is necessary to approach the choice of the type and shape / length of the beard very scrupulously, taking an interest in the opinions of relatives and close friends.

Suppose a man chose the type of beard correctly. The following basic mistake of the stronger sex with facial hair is not regular grooming of the beard. Hair sticking out in different directions on the mustache and beard, obvious stubble on the face in places where it should not be 100% will cause negative emotions in a female / familiar woman, such as unwashed shoes or wrinkled pants / suit on a man.

Therefore, to take care of a beard at home should be regularly, with the use of modern cosmetic products: hair spray, shampoos, soaps, waxes, balms for the desired type of hair.

• Combing. "Two-week unshaven" does not have to comb, and the other beards require constant combing. If you do not carry out this procedure regularly, it will be unpleasant for a man to look at himself in the mirror, not to mention the people around him,

• Swatch. If the hair on the beard is not regularly trimmed, the man will gradually take on a “homeless” look. Although, men - big originals can present such an appearance as “a new trend in stylistics”, developed personally “on the basis of the world's innovative technologies of leading design houses”.
