DO

“Make sure having a beard is right for you. Some people don’t have the growth patterns or the face shape for a good looking beard. Don’t worry, clean faces are just as handsome.” -MW (Harrys)

DON’T

“Don’t try to wear a style that doesn’t work for your beard’s particular set of characteristics. Everyone’s beard has a different density, texture and structure. Some styles just won’t look good on some men.” -TC (The Art of Shaving)

DO

“Try to keep the style of your beard as natural as possible. A lot of men like to shape their beards in a style that the hair doesn’t naturally go, so maintenance is very high. If you keep your beard natural, the maintenance will be much easier.” -JS (Kiehl’s)

DON’T

“A beard isn’t just ‘not shaving.’ You still need to take care of your face even if you’re channeling your inner lumberjack.” -MW (Harrys)

DO

“Wash your beard like you would wash your hair.” -TC (The Art of Shaving)

DON’T

“Don’t neglect it with products that will keep it healthy and let it grow crazy without maintenance.” -JS (Kiehl’s)

Finally, When to Take It Off

“When you forget what your face looks like. Or when eating a bowl of soup requires you to move the beard out of the way.“ -MW (Harrys)

“When your wife gets tired of it.” -JS (Kiehl’s)

“When you don’t like it anymore. First, you’re a man. Second, you’re a man with a beard—do what you want!” -TC (The Art of Shaving)
