HOW TO FIX THE BEARD.
HOW TO FIX THE BEARD.
The most important thing is that a barber, if possible one of the good ones, will advise you which beard is best for you. Many times we want to have the same beard as a friend or a fashion actor, but we have to think that you are someone else, and that beard you imagine for yourself is not always the most appropriate. Here we will tell you how to fix the beard at home.
The basic recommendation is to have a hair clipper, contour, pin or trimmer machine, as you prefer. In short, a small machine, nothing to do with the machine used to cut hair. Its size and versatility will facilitate and help you a lot in the final result. We will use this tool only and exclusively to mark and clean the contours of the beard.
The first action would be to thoroughly brush your beard with a natural bristle brush, with this you will be able to untangle it and give the desired form to see in what state we have it and that you can obtain a diagnosis and the steps to be taken for maintenance.
The next step we will take will be to mark the cheekbone line, for this we will have two reference points. One, the average height of the ear and the other, the corner of the mouth. Joining those two points with an imaginary line, we will obtain the approximate reference of the height of the beard.
The line you are going to work next will be the jaw or neck line. Paradoxically it is the most complicated, because although it is the bottom line, it will be the line that if we climb a lot, we will directly destroy the beard. That line will give us the angle and projection vision, so it will always be better to leave it lower if we are not sure, and let your barber mark it again on your next appointment.
We must not forget to also clean the outer line of the pin, with it we will join in a perfect straight line with the neck line.
Finally we will clean the area of the upper lip or mustache, but attention, the machine with which we mark the contours of the beard, finished his work and it is totally forbidden to use it for the rest of the maintenance of the beard. The tool with which you will retouch the mustache will be a small scissor, since the mistakes we can make will be much more subtle. Trimming just along the upper lip line, without it being fully exposed, so that the mouth is not artificially framed. Carefully remove those unwanted hairs from the surface of the beard, until matched.
So you will know how to fix the beard at home, as far as possible, until your next appointment with that excellent barber who always leaves us so handsome.
