How to Style Your Beard for No-Shave November

For over a decade now, men all over the world have been chucking their razors in favor of beard oil—all in the name of raising awareness for various causes having to do with men’s health. But, just because you’re growing out your goatee in the name of charity, doesn’t mean that you should sacrifice style. Every lumberjack worth his salt should know how to style a beard for No-Shave November.

That’s precisely why we’ve gathered the top three tried-and-true tips for maintaining your manly mustache and bolstering your burly beard.

Scroll down to learn just how to style your beard for No-Shave November:

#1. Lather, Rinse, and Repeat.

You might assume that you should treat the hair on your face much the same as you would the hair on your head. But, you would be wrong (unless you keep your beard short, in which case, you can definitely shampoo and condition it as you would your head hair).

In order to foster the healthiest beard—and the easiest beard to style—you’ll need to cultivate the natural oils that build up on your hair follicles.

That means you should really only be shampooing your beard once a week.

Feel free to condition your beard more often, as a softer beard lends itself more easily to styling.

#2. Pick Out the Perfect Products.

Just as you probably have a favorite pomade to keep your pompadour perfectly coiffed, you should also invest in quality hair care products for your No-Shave November beard.

Depending on the length and style of your particular beard, you may want to look into different options to kick your look up a notch.

For instance, if you’re rocking a full-on handlebar mustache, you should definitely be on the lookout for a sturdy mustache wax—one that can stand up to the challenges of No-Shave November weather.

#3. Trim It Up Tactfully.

Last, but certainly not least, the final key to unlocking the ultimate No-Shave November beard style: trimming.

It might seem counterintuitive to take scissors to a No-Shave November beard. But in order to grow a gentlemanly beard out properly, it’s 100% recommended to trim it up on a regular basis.

Now, you don’t have to take off a considerable amount to make a noticeable difference. Keeping the sides shorter, your neck shaved closely, and your chin a little bit longer will give the appearance of a more chiseled face. Who doesn’t want that?

If you’re not confident in your barbering skills, you can always pop by a Fantastic Sams near you and have them give you a quick trim.
