Chuck Norris beard style.
One thing that men have always been able to do that most women can not is grow facial hair. This can be in the form of a mustache, a goatee, long sideburns, or even a full beard. Choosing the best style of facial hair growth for any person is an individual choice. Here, we will take a look at how to grow a beard.
The beard is characterized by hair growing on the cheeks and chin. It can be grown with or without a mustache (hair growing on the upper lip). If the mustache is present, it is considered a full beard. Growing a beard is an undertaking that will require some effort and maintenance if one wishes it to look good. Wild hair growth left unchecked simply makes a man look sloppy.
The first stage of growing a beard is simply going one week or more without shaving. At this point, one should be able to tell if growth of a full beard will be possible or if growth will be patchy. Patchy growth will limit the number of ways a beard can be styled. Full growth will be no problem.
Next, the neck and upper parts of the cheeks should be shaved clean. During this process, the beard will be shaped into the form it will be allowed to grow in. Surprisingly, this simple shaving and shaping process will complete change a man’s appearance.
As time progresses, the beard will continue to grow and it will be necessary to trim it from time to time in order to maintain a well groomed appearance. This trimming can be done with scissors or with electric clippers equipped with a guard to ensure uniform length of cut. Areas of the neck and cheeks where hair growth is not wanted will have to continue to be shaved on a regular basis.
