HOW DO I GET THE RIGHT BEARD CONTOURS? – FLATTERING AND VERSATILE

A well-contoured beard looks tidy and masculine – but one slip of the blade is all it takes to spoil the symmetry. Here are a few tips to help you stop that happening.

THE RIGHT TOOL AND YOUR CREATIVITY ARE ALL THAT DETERMINE YOUR LOOK

The basic rule is: areas with sparse growth should be clean-shaven. For beard contours to look good, the hairs along the edge need to be full and thick. So before you trim your beard to your desired shape, let it grow for a couple of weeks first. That way, it’s easier to see where you want the contour to go, and the results will look better. While your beard is growing, use a beard oil to help soothe the itching. Ready to trim?

BEARD CONTOURS ON CHEEKS

To give your full beard or designer stubble the right contours, shave a straight line or a gentle curve into the cheek hairs between sideburns and moustache, then continue the line above the beard on your chin.

BEARD CONTOURS ON CHINS

A beard contour below the sideburns, starting around 2cm below the jawbone, looks well groomed and clean. To shave the contour forwards in a fairly straight line, start at the Adam’s apple and shave the hairs away to a width of two to three fingers. Where you put the contours and how strong they are is up to you. Generally speaking, full beards only look good if the throat area has clear, symmetrical contours too. Another tip: always trim your beard dry, even when using a beard trimmer. A beard comb or brush gets the hairs in shape first, and prepares them consistently for the blade. It’s easier to get clean contours if you trim your beard regularly. Long beard hairs spoil the line and create their own fuzzy contours. For men with sensitive skin, we recommend electric shavers. But if you prefer a wet shave, never shave against the direction of growth. Start with your cheeks and upper lip, then finish with the chin, where the toughest stubble grows. This will give your shaving foam time to soften the stubble. Once you’ve got the contours right, apply a care product. Your skin – and your appearance – will benefit from care products with plenty of moisture and skin-soothing ingredients. Got your technique down?
