How to have and maintain a hipster beard?

The hipster beard is a real phenomenon. Here are all my tips for having a hipster beard and how to take care of it. 

The hipster beard is, I think, the style of beard that many men would like to have. Some take the step to have it and let their beard grow for a while. Because you will need time to achieve your goals and have a beautiful hipster beard. Others may on the contrary be put off by the time it can take and especially by the upkeep that a hipster beard represents. And yes, having such a beard is good, but it requires a minimum of maintenance to have a good quality of hair. But in the end, it's not that complicated.

Here is all the information about the hipster beard below.

What is a hipster beard?


Ah the hipster beard! We hear a lot about it because it represents a real lifestyle, with the famous hipster look: lumberjack shirt, loose jeans, big pumps. Besides, if the number of barbers has exploded, it's not for nothing, it's because there is a real phenomenon around the hipster beard.


Today, this is a bit past, the fashion being rather for the 3-day beard or even the 10-day beard . It is true that maintaining a hipster beard is not necessarily easy on a daily basis for busy men! For men who have more time, it is different.  

hipster beard looks unkempt

But concretely, how can a hipster beard be recognized from other beards? Well, there is a main sign that distinguishes the hipster beard from other beards: the hipster beard is neglected. Even bordering on being shaggy. Finally, it seems to be neglected but it is far from it! Because it required a lot of attention and care to bring to the beard, so that it remains beautiful. And then the neglected side can be worked with a beard balm, as if to give a wavy effect to your beard!


The hipster beard is long

The hipster beard is a long beard , guys have waited a while before they can sport a beautiful hipster beard. So long and neglected, we can already see the slightly rebellious style that hipsters want to give themselves. But no no, these guys are not very bad!!

Anyway, the hipster beard is long, but there is no standard length. Indeed, it is considered that you have a hipster beard from 2 centimeters in length at the chin and 1 cm on the cheeks. So it can come quite quickly depending on how long your beard takes to grow.

The hipster beard is thick

Another characteristic of the hipster beard is that it is a thick, bushy beard . Concretely, a hipster beard is a full beard, without holes in the beard . It is clearly the opposite of a sparse or incomplete beard .

Hipster beard has a beautiful mustache

Finally, the hipster beard is distinguished by its mustache, long like the beard but especially twisted at its ends! Mustache wax has never been used so much! The mustache is indeed a differentiating element of the hipster beard from other beards. But be careful, the mustache must have a certain length, it must not exceed the length of 1.5 cm

Afterwards, between us, twisting your mustache is not a necessary condition to have a hipster beard. It is true that it gives an offbeat look, a strong personality that is not necessarily compatible with working in an office, for example.

The beard brush for your hipster beard


Even if a hipster beard is characterized by its slightly shaggy side, it will still have to be brushed!​ And given the length, you will have to use a beard brush to make it easier for you.
