The Lengths We Go To ...

Throughout history a man’s beard and moustache has defined his style. One thing for certain is that no two days are ever the same. Keeping your facial hair in check needs dedication and a little help from good tools and products. Here we look at some essentials to help you manage your style. 

The Chevron Moustache

Shaped to angle downwards towards the corners of your mouth, the chevron moustache needs careful regular combing and trimming. This moustache should be full and thick and trimmed so that the lower edge just rests on the top of your lip. With our Moustache Kit you have the essentials you need. A comb and brush in one handy style, and a pair of perfectly sized grooming scissors presented in a leather pouch for home or for travel.

The Pencil Moustache

Whether your inspiration is Errol Flynn or Brad Pitt, the pencil moustache has been worn by many iconic stars. A thin moustache a little above the lip, the style is neatly clipped to take on the look as if it has been drawn on by a pencil. Use a straight razor around the sides for that super sharp edge. 

 

The Handlebar Moustache

For a confident look, go for the handlebar moustache. Whilst a little more time and attention will be needed to grow and tease the ends of your moustache into perfect curls, the effect will be worth it. Grow them even longer for that Salvador Dali look, and don't forget the wax!

Stubble

The difference between the lack of shaving and a permanent stubble look is keeping it neatly trimmed and sharpening up the lines, particularly around the cheeks. Using a warm flannel and daily moisturiser will rejuvenate your skin and prevent it from drying out.

     

 

The Tailored Beard

A neat look that usually takes 2-4 weeks to develop. It works well in many ways either to emphasise the cheek bones, make a small chin fuller or slim down the rounder face. Keep your beard soft and manageable with a daily shampoo and trim it with sharp beard scissors ensuring any stray hairs are removed. 

The Long Beard

If your facial hair grows consistently across your face, the long beard may be the look for you. Shaping the beard can give you the style you want, either to fill out the face at the side or elongate your face below the chin. Shampoo and conditioning the long beard is a must, as it can easily become dry and cause the skin underneath it to itch. Our bestselling beard conditioner will keep your beard soft and moisturised without any greasy residue.
