The rules for trimming a 5-day beard

To maintain your 5-day beard and have it in its best light, here are some tips:

  • your 5-day beard must be dry: you must never trim a beard when your hair is wet or even damp. It must be perfectly dry. Promote mowing before going in the shower in the morning.

  • to properly shape your beard and have a uniform length of hair, do not hesitate to comb or brush it before using the mower. I advise you to use a beard brush instead because it will also allow you to brush your skin and do good to your hair follicle.

How to trim the outline of the 5-day beard?


​ The good thing about a 5-day beard is that you have the choice:


  • or you decide to have a very well worked, well drawn, perfectly clean beard outline . No hair protruding from the beard both on the neck and on the cheekbones.

  • or you decide to have a cooler, more neglected look and in this case you can work less on the outline of your beard.


In any case, if you decide to outline your beard:

  • at the level of the neck, it is necessary to keep 1 cm above the Adam's apple. Everything below should be shaved clean. The curve at the level of the neck must follow the shape of the face, to keep a certain aesthetic sense.

If you have decided not to keep the 5-day beard, the question of how to shave it may indeed arise. Because shaving the 5-day beard can be complex, the hair being relatively long. Here are my tips for shaving the 5-day beard properly:

  • use a beard trimmer to trim the beard as short as possible. Don't put on any clogs, it will save you some time

  • then apply a shaving product. Never shave your beard without shaving products, it's the best way to cut yourself and have bleeding. I advise you to use a transparent shaving product, such as shaving gel or shaving oil.

  • always use a razor with a blade in good condition. A damaged razor blade is a blade that will cut the hair badly, so it risks growing back out of shape and causing an ingrown hair.

  • Finally, after shaving your 5-day beard, apply a moisturizer to soothe the skin.

Maintain your 5-day beard with a dermaroller

The objective of the 5-day beard is to have a beard that is as beautiful as possible, with relatively strong hair so as to have a thick beard , a full beard . To do this, I advise you to use a beard dermaroller regularly, two to three times a week. The dermaroller is a beard accessory that will accelerate blood microcirculation and therefore have a strong impact on the quality of the hair follicle. And we know it well, a healthy hair follicle is beard hair that will be in its best possible condition.
