The mid-length beard requires daily care. Through this article, you will have all our tips for properly maintaining your mid-length beard.

All men would like to have a beautiful mid-length beard. This is also the step before having a long beard , like the hipster beard . But it takes time, because depending on the men the beard does not grow at the same speed. And above all, this involves taking care of it on a daily basis to avoid certain inconveniences, such as an itchy beard .

But what is a mid-length beard? It is simply a beard that is between the short beard that is the 3-day beard , or even the 5-day beard, and the long beard like the hipster beard. We can consider that the 10-day beard is a mid-length beard.

Here are all my tips for properly maintaining your mid-length beard.

How to trim a mid-length beard?

Have a mid-length beard

As I said in the introduction to the article, having a mid-length beard will require patience, more or less long depending on the man. Everything is a question of genetics above all, the hair of the beard will grow faster in some people. But also care! It is necessary to ensure that the hair follicle, from which the hair of the beard takes root under the dermis, is in good shape. Because if the hair follicle is not in good shape, then the beard hair may grow but not hold and fall out. This can thus generate holes in the beard .

Castor oil to grow a medium beard

To have a mid-length beard, you can use a natural product that is loved by all men who have long beards, namely castor oil . This vegetable oil is indeed known to naturally accelerate hair growth, more than any other vegetable oil (olive oil, walnut oil, etc.). 

Brush to grow a mid-length beard

Another tip to grow a mid-length beard faster, and naturally, will be to brush the beard daily, even morning and evening. Brushing your beard will also brush the skin under the beard and therefore the skin. The bristles of the brush will thus accelerate blood circulation, which will have a very beneficial impact on the hair follicle (the famous one that must be taken care of!).

In addition, brushing your beard will be a moment of relaxation for you, a moment when you sit quietly in the bathroom, without doing anything else nearby, without a phone screen.

The trimmer for a mid-length beard

Of course, to have a mid-length beard, you will need to equip yourself with an essential beard accessory , namely a beard trimmer . The beard trimmer will indeed have to be used almost daily to maintain your mid-length beard at the desired length. Otherwise you will very quickly end up with a long beard.


The trimmer will also allow you to give the shape of the beard you want, especially if you want a pointed beard .

The bib to trim a mid-length beard

Another accessory that I advise you to have to trim the mid-length beard is a beard bib. You will see, this accessory will transform the way you maintain your beard and especially when you trim it.

The beard bib will make it easy to collect all the hair you have mowed: rather than putting it all over the bathroom, you collect it in one place. This will save you time cleaning your bathroom after trimming your beard. But it will also save you some fights with your partner!

The contours of a mid-length beard

The work of the beard contour will be an important element in the maintenance of your mid-length beard, because it is what will define your style in particular. In effect :


  • if you have the contours of your mid-length beard perfectly defined, then you will have an elegant and well-groomed appearance. You can thus perfectly wear this beard for a job interview or to go to work without giving a negative image of your personality.

  • if, on the contrary, you decide not to take care of your beard outline and leave your mid-length beard natural, then it will give you a relaxed style, which is not necessarily suitable for certain professions.

Depilatory cream for the mid-length beard

One way to remove cheekbone hair is to use a beard removal cream . The advantage of this product is that it is very easy to use: just put the cream on the hairs you want to remove and wait for the time indicated by the brand. A few tips for using the cream properly:


  • always test on a patch of skin if you are using hair removal cream for the first time. You could indeed be allergic and have burns.

  • do not exceed the time indicated by the mark, always to avoid having burns

The straight razor for the mid-length beard

The straight razor is a very nice accessory to properly maintain your beard outline, especially if you are a fan of classic shaving like our great-grandfathers did. It's a nice shaving accessory in addition but which requires a good knowledge of the product. Indeed, it is an accessory that can be very sharp if it is misused (too quickly, without lack of attention).

The safety razor for the mid-length beard

Another tool you could use to trim the hairs sticking out of your beard outline is to use a safety razor , which is also an accessory used as part of a traditional shave . If you are a fan of zero waste consumption, know that the safety razor will allow you to make a zero waste shave of your beard outline, no more plastic razors.

Be careful here too when using a safety razor, especially if you have fragile skin, because the blades are in direct contact with the skin, without a protective cushion as can be found on some razors specially adapted for sensitive skin.

The beard stencil for the mid-length beard

If you are afraid of drawing your beard outline badly, not having a nice line or going too low, you can use a beard stencil. It's an accessory that will work like a rule: you apply the stencil directly to your beard, at the height you want. A word of advice, however: always keep the natural line of your beard to avoid having a beard that is too low.
