How to Grow a beard
Looking to dress up that nakes chin with a little hair this winter? Keep your face warm and toasty with a beard you can be proud of. In this tutorial, get tips on how to grow the best beard in town.
You Will Need:
• Beard trimmer or razor
• Baby lotion (optional)
Step 1: Make a commitment
Make a commitment to growing a beard. The process of going from clean-shaven to fully bearded usually takes at least four weeks.
Step 2: Stop shaving
Do not shave for at least the first four weeks while your beard grows.
Step 3: Shampoo and condition
Once the hair gets long enough, shampoo and condition your beard as you would the hair on your head.
Step 4: Trim and shape
Trim your beard into the shape that you want. This includes creating a neckline – the point under your jaw, at your neck – where your beard should stop.
Step 5: Continue your efforts
Continue your growing efforts for at least six weeks.
Step 6: Sculpt and manicure
Sculpt and manicure your facial hair into a goatee, Van Dyke, a chin curtain, or whatever you like.
Trivia: Hans Langseth, a Norwegian immigrant to the U.S., had a beard measuring 17 feet 6 inches at his death in 1927. His beard was donated to the Smithsonian Institute in 1967.
