Where your beard starts and stops is greatly dependent on your facial structure. Also, how high up on your cheeks your beard should go is a topic of discussion. Aaron Marino of alpha m. says that beard grooming takes nurturing, finesse, love, and maintenance to get it just right.

The perfect beard rarely happens. Patchy growth is okay to an extent. If you are very patchy, don't attempt a long and full beard. Regardless of your beard length, you need a high quality facial grooming tool. Get a good one, like the a Norlco Grooming Toolwhich Alpha has recently fallen in love with.

  1. The first decision is the length of the beard. Big and bushy is not professional and check with your employer before going crazy. It can also look dirty if not cared for. A short beard doesn't take as much work.
  2. Where should your beard start on your neck? Neck beards are a look that is edgier (think rock star and celebs) but defining the beard is more presentable for the average guy. Trimming too close to the jaw is not a good look. A proper beard starts lower. Shut your mouth, lift your head, and feel your jaw. Where the soft area is the boundary. If you have a double chin, neck fat, or weak jaw, let the beard grow lower (one or two fingers above the Adam's apple). The hair camouflages and strengthens. Define the boundary and get the stragglers too.
  3. Where on your cheek should that hairline start? Draw an imaginary line from the top of your ear to your mouth. Trim above and clean up straggly hairs.
  4. Groom the beard by setting the guard and go on over the beard, taking your time. Blend and taper your sideburns too.
  5. Shave and detail the boundaries to make the beard look finished and presentable.
