Are you tired of getting carded? Tired of being called “Baby Faced Steve”? Tired of having a cold chin in the winter? If the answer is yes to any of those questions, it might be time for you to grow a beard. But what’s your beard style? Where do you even start? It might seem like all you have to do is sit back and let your follicles do all the work, but there are a few things you can do to help the process along. Here are a few tips to help you grow a beard.
1. Map Out Your Beard
Not all beards look the same. Moreover, not every face has the ability to grow a ZZ Top level beard right away. Before you commit to growing your beard, try testing out your hair growth patterns by growing some stubble. By doing this, you’ll learn how your hair grows in, and if you can even grow a full beard. You’ll also be able to see if you have any large patches that don’t have growth, which in turn will help inform the shape your facial hair should take. Mapping out your stubble will also indicate if you can even grow a beard.
