Beard Basics

Before we dive into our answer for today’s topic, I want to make sure that all of you at least the basics about beard anatomy and generally some beard styles for your face types.

A beard is composed of six smaller parts:

  • Sideburn
  • Cheek Beard
  • Mustache
  • Side
  • Front
  • Neckbeard

Now, let’s see a few things about each one of them.

Sideburn is the part of your beard that connects your hair with your facial hair. Some men want this area to be faded while others just let it grow.

Cheek beard is the facial hair on your cheeks while side hairs are a little bit lower. Also, your mustache belongs to your beard and it is a very significant component.

Finally, the front part of beards is the area below our lips and the neckbeard is the hair under the chin which, if left untrimmed, covers part of the neck.

Leaving your lowest part of your beard untrimmed will cause a lot of problems and will make your beard look strange if you let it grow. If some men don’t shave the lower part of their beards, then it gets connected to their chest hair.

Trimming your beard and creating the neckline is really important for your beard’s look but many men skip this part which is quite disappointing…

Another mistake many of us have done is not combing the neckbeard( under chin beard). By not combing your beard, some hairs grow in random directions and your beard looks messy and neglected.

But, which is the correct way of combing a beard?

Let’s get into it.

How To Comb Your Beard Under The Chin

How To Comb Your Beard Under Chin

In short, there are 3 ways you can brush your beard under chin. Most men don’t have a clue how to do it properly so they do it randomly.

  1. Your first option is to comb your facial hair upwards and forward to give the impression of a longer beard.
  2. The second option is to comb your beard straight down.
  3. And the final option is to comb your beard up and then down.

Most men do a little bit of everything. Well, if you have got a short beard, you won’t probably have knots, and you won’t need to untangle your beard. You will only comb it towards the direction you want, and that’s it.

However, there is more to it when you have a long thick beard…

Undoubtedly, every beard is different and may require a different approach. Also, some beard styles match different face types and there is not an all-for-one rule.

My general tip and recommendation is that you should comb your beard and especially the part under the chin first up and out and then down and backward.

How To Comb Your Beard Under Chin Depending On Your Face Type

We will try to categorise the face types into 3 categories:

  1. The oval face
  2. The rectangular face
  3. The rounder face

If you have an oval face, beard styling and combing is easy for you. You are lucky to have the best face type and you will look amazing with most beard styles.

However, don’t neglect your combing and brushing routine completely. Follow the general rule, first, comb your beard up to untangle it and straighten it and then comb it down and backward. If you have difficulties in combing, don’t try to force the comb up and down.

Wash your beard, dry it, put a little bit of beard oil or butter and start again otherwise you will pull out facial hairs which I bet you don’t wanna do.

If you have a rectangular face you need a side part fuller than other men and a shorter bottom. This will make your face look more oval. Comb your beard upward to make it look fuller on the sideburns because your under chin beard will look shorter.

If your facial hairs are going out way too much, comb them down a little bit. You get the concept.

Finally, if you have a rounder face, which is the worst scenario, you need to help it by creating sharp angles with your beard. Longer thinner faded sideburns, long under chin beard, and a sharp neckline will create the impression of a less round face which is undoubtedly what you should look for.

You might also want to taper it and keep it longer on the chin. This is a fantastic way to strengthen a weak jaw. Define your boundaries.

These are real tips, guys; please pay attention.

As a parenthesis, if you wanna have a less round face, you should stay hydrated, consume less salt, and also lose some body fat.

All in all, you should comb your beard down. As much as you can. The longer you make it, the better. Plain and simple.
