The beard is a trend. A couple of years ago, that street tribe that began to call itself (with great pride) hipster proposed a disheveled, long, and little retouched. But that was too many years ago. Now things have changed. It is worn short and neat, in an elegant way, and with an informal but neat appearance. Yes, it is not contradicting yourself, it is knowing how to arrive at the perfect combination.
What is being a boom maintained over time are those barbershops that, in the 50s and 60s were pilgrimage centers, in which men, not only retouched but caught up, closed businesses and spent the same time as in a restaurant. Hairdressers and barbers who have been perfecting the art of male grooming and who tell us about this ritual for which you have two options: go to one of these specialized sites or do it yourself at home.
The ideal, actually, is to go to a barbershop every two weeks; because they are the ones who know how to find the best cut according to your face and get that style that lasts just over three days, which seems easy but when you get down to it, it becomes impossible.
There are many ways to shave, from the more traditional method (although, a review of the history of the most famous beards of history do not know what is classical in this Whiskers) to the most elaborate or revolutionary. But they all go through the same steps: trimming, applying a specific cream before shaving using a good aftershave, and, of course, moisturizing.
BEFORE YOU START, THINK ABOUT THE LENGTH OF YOUR BEARD
If you have an oversized beard, it’s best to start by trimming it before shaving. Yes, it is not the same. They are two well-differentiated steps. Get some good scissors that reduce the volume and facilitate this ritual.
Once you get a glimpse of your face under that wild beard, apply a hot towel to help soften your hair and open up your pores. The process will be much easier. Something for which a good shaving cream will also help you.
CHOOSE WELL WHICH BEARD YOU WANT
The best method of all is the razor since the blade irritates the skin a lot and the razor leaves the hair spike. But the preferences, like the types of beard, are very different and all valid.
Of course, look for the most current style always keeping your features in mind. The round beads are valid for all types of faces, the sharp ones are much better for those who have it elongated and those of the square type, for those with a triangular face because it widens the features. Now, the height of the neck is always above the walnut and even a little higher.
But if there is something that sets a trend, it is those beards with a certain vintage or retro air, which are achieved through outlines and gradients. With the first you get to mark the features very well and, with the second, you blur the sides and sharpen the finish a bit.
TO FINISH, LOTS OF HYDRATION
The first thing to do is to apply an aftershave, one of the few exclusive heritage cosmetics for the male gender, along with a cold towel that closes the pore. And finally, always hydrate. The Burnt Whiskey brand has a perfectly Beard Balm made from natural products.
Once you have finished drawing your beard, the important thing is to keep it clean. Much more even than that shaving process. To do this, you must use a natural soap, without alcohol or with essential oils such as argon or tea tree. Always dry it cold and use a skeleton brush that does not break the hair. And if you like to perfume it, go back to lemon and lime oils. It seems like a difficult process, but don’t they tell girls that to be beautiful you have to suffer? Not really. But everything has its job.
