How to Get and Maintain the Look

Once you let your beard grow for a week and a half (longer if you're very fair-haired), go over it daily with a trimmer set at around a half centimeter to catch stray or uneven hairs. Keep the throat area—from the top of the Adam's apple down—shaved, and clean the beard by exfoliating dead skin cells once a week. Finally, dab on a few drops of conditioning oil each morning to keep it smelling fresh.
