As we move into 2023, it's time to think about giving your beard an upgrade. Whether you've been rocking a beard for years or you're just getting started, the new year is the perfect time to experiment with new styles and start the year off with a fresh, upgraded look. This blog post will explore how to upgrade your facial hair and give tips and tricks for keeping your beard looking great all year round.
ASSESS YOUR CURRENT BEARD SITUATION
Before making any changes, look carefully at your current beard situation. What shape and length is it? Is it even and symmetrical, or patchy and unbalanced? Do you have areas of thicker growth or gaps with little or no hair?
Once you've assessed your current beard, you'll be able to decide how to upgrade it for the new year. Is there a particular style you're interested in trying? Or maybe you want to keep the same length and shape but tidy it up a bit? Whatever the case, having a clear idea of what you want to achieve will help you move forward in your journey to the perfect new year beard.
CHOOSE A STYLE
When it comes to choosing a style for your new beard, the options are almost endless. Some of the most popular types include a Full Beard, a Garibaldi, and a Short-boxed Beard, among others.
The full beard is classic and timeless, offering an air of masculinity and sophistication. To achieve this look, allow your facial hair to grow, perhaps with the help of our Hair Growth Vitamins, to speed up the process until it is even all around your face. Then, you can use a trimmer to shape the beard's edges as desired.
The Garibaldi Beard has a round shape. To get this look, leave the hair on your face to grow naturally for around 3 to 4 months and trim as needed.
Finally, the short boxed beard is an edgy, modern style that involves keeping the sides of the beard short while allowing the chin area to grow out slightly longer. A trimmer will come in handy for this style as well.
No matter which style you choose, remember that it's all about experimenting and finding what looks best on you.
GROW IT OUT
If you've chosen a new style for 2023, you'll need to grow your beard to get it to the desired length. Growing a beard can take time and patience, so commit to the process.
Start by trimming your beard down to the shortest length you want, and start growing it from there. To encourage growth, ensure you eat a healthy diet, take vitamins, and drink plenty of water. It's also essential to use quality beard care products to keep your beard clean and healthy.
KEEP IT WELL-GROOMED
If you're serious about upgrading your beard for the New Year, you must be committed to keeping it clean and well-groomed. This means regular washing, trimming, and visiting a barber every now and then.
Start by washing your beard with a specialized shampoo such as our Beard Wash. This product will help remove dirt and excess oils, which can cause itchiness and dandruff. Follow up with our Leave-in Conditioner to soften and smooth your facial hair.
Trimming is an essential part of beard maintenance, too. Use an adjustable trimmer set to your desired length, and then use scissors for tricky spots around the lips or neck. Try to trim your beard every two weeks or so to keep it looking neat and healthy.
Once you've achieved the desired look of your beard, it's time to take it up a notch and accessorize. Accessories are the perfect way to make your beard stand out from the rest and make a lasting impression.
Beard combs and brushes are a great way to keep your beard tidy and well-groomed. Comb your beard daily, paying particular attention to the neckline and cheek line. This practice will help keep your beard looking healthy and even. A comb is also a great way to distribute evenly beard oil, keeping your facial hair moisturized and looking shiny.
Beard oils are an easy way to add a bit of shine and luster to your facial hair while providing nourishment. Look for natural ingredients like argan oil, jojoba oil, almond oil, and coconut oil, all of which can be found in Fresh Heritage's Classic Beard Oil. These natural ingredients will help keep your beard hydrated and prevent itching.
