SHOULD YOU TRIM YOUR BEARD WHILST GROWING OUT?

Happy Friday my fellow blog readers. I hope many of you have adjusted ok back into the swing of work following your Christmas festivities.

Today let us discuss how to care for your ever growing beard when you are trying to grow things out. As many mistakes can be easily made here, so we want you to know we have your back when it comes to your face fuzz. So, let us begin today's topic, which is titled - Should You Trim Your Beard Whilst Growing Out?

IT DEPENDS ON WHAT SHAPE AND STYLE YOU ARE AFTER!

First things first, a lot of how you should care for your face fur heavily depends on how you aim to style it. if you're looking for a medium length beard a light trim every now and again will work wonders, whereas if you are growing out a full lumberjack style face of manly whiskers then trimming can stay down to a minimum.

There are of course real benefits to trimming, as this helps keep the split ends at an all time low, as they can often easily form within your facial hair proving to be a real pain in the ass to shake off. Today's advice will be mostly focused on the longer beard styles, and how to continue to grow out whilst maintaining a healthy, long flowing beard in the process.

KEEPING THINGS TIDY WILL CERTAINLY HELP YOU REACH YOUR BEARD GOALS!

It is never too much trouble to practice and follow a good beard care routine, this includes a light trim every once in a while. This can be done in the comfort of your own home, or if you don't fancy your handy trimming skills you can of course take a trip to your beard barbers, who know exactly what they are doing, or atleast should do anyhow. As mentioned before this will lower your split ends and take away any knots, tangles and damaged hairs along the way. The results will be worth it, mark my words.

TRIMMING THE SIDES RATHER THAN THE LENGTH IS A TRICK FOLLOWED BY MANY!

If you are trying to achieve a long flowing beard the very thought of trimming your facial hair will likely send a shiver down your spine with concern. But there's a simple trick you can follow, which is where you take nothing away from the length but instead from the sides. This will keep any curls at bay, and in return will make the length of your beard appear somewhat longer and fuller as well.

When I used to trim in the comfort of my own home I used the largest grade then worked my way down lowering the grade on the trimmer as I go. This way should lower your chances of messing things up, as chopping away at that face fur is quick and mistakes can be made, whereas growing it out often takes much longer.

If you are choosing the safer option of the two and visiting your beard barber, then be sure to make things very clear that you are growing your furry face forest out, and do not require much if any taken away from the length. Your barber may still take a pinch from the very tips of your beard, but only as and where it is needed to don't sweat it.
