Just like the hair on our heads, a beard must be well maintained and cared for. Letting it grow wild and without good upkeep is less than stylish. You should wash regularly with shampoo and condition daily with a beard oil or balm. Follow our guide below to groom it like the pro’s.

Apply a protein moisturiser, we use Hair Alive by Joumia. Disperse a few pumps into your hand.

Massage the moisturiser into your beard with your hands. This will help to tame any flyaways and will soften the hairs to make it easy to comb and straighten.

Blow dry and brush with a quiff roller to straighten the hairs.

When the beard is dried and the hairs are well straightened, use a comb and trimmer to trim and line up as desired.

Clean away any trimmed hairs with a beard brush.

Apply a foam cleanser to clean and prepare the beard for styling - We used American Crew Beard Foam Cleanser.

Apply a beard oil or beard balm, we used 18.21 Man Made Beard Balm. Scoop a small amount and rub between your hands, work through the beard using your fingers to disperse evenly.

Shape and style as desired using a beard comb or your hands.

Finish up with a cologne to get yourself feeling fresh and ready.

Smile, your beard is on point and you can be ready for what ever the day brings.
