5 Hairstyles for Men with Beards
Hairstyles for Men with Beards – beards are great, let’s face it, they have been on trend for a while and still seem to be going strong. But the question is, what hairstyles should you rock if you have a beard?
Well, fear no more, because we have some suggestions with our Top 5 Hairstyles for Men with Beards and products the barber recommends.
1. How to style a Slicked Back Undercut
To create the slick back look, you need to comb your hair back, starting at the forehead and ending at the nape. The motion of the back-combing of the hair is straight and even, so if you first begin combing back the hair on the centre of your forehead (where the hair starts on your forehead), you shall then finish the back-combing motion at the centre of your nape. Then repeat the same action for the rest of your head. Always starting at the front and ending at the back of the head.
Your shampooing routine should put all the attention on those locks and your scalp. This will keep your top knot in tip-top shape. Use PMB Tea Tree Shampoo & Conditioner for a soft and silky finish.
2. How to style a Man bun / Topknot
First, start by finding the placement of the top knot. Then, take all your hair up and tie it as you would with a man bun. The result is a new ‘do completely.‘ This is an excellent style for guys who like the man bun but don’t want to wait months to grow out their hair!
3. How to style A Shaggy / Messy hair
Start with clean, towel-dried hair and use a blow dryer on a high heat setting to achieve the shape you want. Take a small amount of Pompadour Paste or Pliable Clay for hairstyles for men with beards and work it into the back of the hair, moving forward. To use, rub a small amount of the styling product between the fingers and work from root to tip for a robust and matte hold with added texture.
4. How to style a Side Swept Undercut with Beard
This look needs a lot of attention and requires a product with a massive hold. Like the Pliable Clay, the side-swept undercut involves volume. Take all the products is well and comb the hair to one side. It provides the asymmetrical look that’s key to the side-swept undercut.
5. How to style a Hippie Combed Slicked Back with Faded Sides
Retro styles are still as popular as ever. Slicked back cut pays homage to the greaser look of the fifties, with the beard rounding out the form.
Beard Grooming Products Every Man Needs
Beard trimmers are a great tool to help you tidy your beard up quickly, especially if you keep an even length all over. Wahl, Andis, and Philips all make great beard trimmers that are easy to use and will bring most of the hair down to the same length. If you find that your beard doesn’t look full, and want to improve the illusion of it, trim the hair around the moustache and goatee area one length setting lower than the rest of your beard – this will make the rest of the hair look fuller in comparison. Be careful not to go down more than two length settings on your beard trimmer in this area, or you’ll start to look a bit suspect.
Combs & Scissors for beards
To keep your beard looking great and in shape, it’s imperative to use a comb and scissors to get the stray hairs that your trimmer will inevitably miss. There are always escapees from the trimmer – those of us that keep short beards will be able to testify to that. Run the comb in the opposite direction of hair growth to lift any strays away from the rest of the beard, and then use the comb to keep them held away and isolated, so you can easily trim them with the scissors. Another tip is to use the comb around the neckline of the beard to trim it slightly shorter than the rest of the beard, giving a subtle fade into the neck that will make your beard look sharper and fuller.
Razor and Shave Oil for beards
To get the sharpest edges on your beard, you’ll want to tidy up with a shave every few days. A safety razor is usually the best choice, as you have slightly more control than a cartridge razor. It’s always best to use Shave Oil when shaping up a beard. It will soften the hairs enough for shaving, and provides much more visibility for shaping the beard – we’ve heard one too many stories of guys using shaving cream and taking off slightly too much of their beard because they couldn’t quite tell where to shave! Apply the shave oil in the area you want to shave, usually the cheeks and lower neck, and shave as you would normally.
Face Scrub & Moisturising for beards
Using a face scrub is imperative for beard growers. The skin beneath the beard gets dry as the hair pulls oil away from the skin, and without proper moisturization and the daily exfoliation men naturally get from shaving, the skin can start to become flaky. Beard dandruff is not a good look. Use a scrub all over the face, every other day at the least, and pay special attention to the beard area – especially the neck. Rinse off with warm water and follow with a small amount of moisturizing balm all over the face, working it into the beard.
Beard Oil & Moustache Wax
When considering beard grooming products, applying beard oil is the bare minimum that every man with a beard should do to groom his beard and keep it looking great. The oil helps provide moisture to the skin beneath the beard – work it into the beard paying extra attention to the neck and goatee areas, as these are most prone to dryness and flakiness. Your beard will feel softer, but also look shinier and healthier. Use a small amount of moustache wax, warmed between the fingers, to keep any unruly hairs in place, or to style a moustache – and remember, as with any styling product, you can always add more but never take away, so use sparingly.
