All men would like to have a beautiful beard. Here in the article are all my tips for having a beautiful beard every day.


If there's one thing that bothers bearded men, it's having a nice beard! And in particular a category of bearded man in particular, the pogonophile , this person who spends a crazy time maintaining and taking care of his beard. Having a beautiful beard is indeed the holy grail of bearded men, regardless of the type of beard. Whether the person indeed has a 3-day beard or a hipster beard , all bearded men today want to have a beautiful beard. But this is not easy, it requires not only time but also to be equipped!

But what exactly does it mean to have a beautiful beard? Here are my tips for having a beautiful beard in all circumstances!

What is a beautiful beard?

Many of you want a beautiful beard, but concretely, what is a beautiful beard? How do you know if you have a nice beard or not?

Time to have a nice beard

The first element to take into account to define a beautiful beard is a long beard. So if you are only at the beginning of your beard growth, and you want to go from a completely hairless face to a long beard , it will take time! Indeed, if for you to have a beautiful beard means to have a long beard, then several weeks, even several months will be necessary for you. All men are not equal when it comes to beard growth:

  • for some, it will take a few weeks to have a full beard,

  • in others it will take several months.


It all comes down to your genetics basically. It's Mother Nature that you will have to thank if your beard grows quickly, or even hate if you are not satisfied with it!

So of course there are techniques to accelerate beard growth, to grow your beard faster , but these are not miracle techniques either, you should not count on them. I am talking in particular about beard growth accelerators, of which many products on sale are simply scams, simple beard oils.

A beautiful beard without a hole

The second characteristic to have a beautiful beard is necessarily not to have holes in the beard , even if only a very small hole. Holes in the beard are the anguish of bearded men because, depending on their size and location, it is not very aesthetic. This is called a sparse or incomplete beard .

In any case, to have a beard that grows properly and avoid having holes in the beard, it will be necessary to ensure that the hair follicle, from which the hair of your beard takes root, is in perfect health. This requires in particular by perfectly hydrating your skin.

A nice well-groomed beard

Finally, a beautiful beard can simply be a well-groomed beard, namely without the slightest hair that sticks out. All the hairs of the beard are perfectly disciplined. This means taking time each morning to properly groom your beard , using certain daily care products to take care of it.

Regularly trim your beautiful beard

If having a beautiful beard means having a perfectly groomed beard, then you will have to set up a daily beard care routine!

The trimmer for a beautiful beard

First, you will have to trim your beautiful beard, using a beard trimmer to thin out your beard and trim it to the desired length. Of course, it will be necessary to trim his beard delicately, so as not to make holes in the beard, which can be recoverable if they are small, but unforgivable if they are large. It would be a shame to have to shave your long-awaited beard for months!

It will be necessary to mow your beautiful beard always on a dry hair, when it is natural. Avoid mowing your beautiful beard with wet hair.

Accessories for a beautiful beard

In addition to a beard trimmer, to have a nice well-trimmed beard, you will also need to bring:

  • a beard comb , to properly discipline the hair before mowing it

  • a beard scissor, to cut the hairs that would have passed outside the beard trimmer

Also, don't forget to take care of your beard contour  : a beautiful beard is a perfectly trimmed beard, without having any hair sticking out and making you look unkempt.

Maintain your beautiful beard

Now that you have a beautiful beard of the desired length and perfectly trimmed, you will have to take care of it. This will prevent you from having a dry beard , or even an itchy beard . There is indeed nothing more difficult to soften an itchy beard . Here are my tips for having a beautiful, soft beard that shines.

Wash your beautiful beard well

The first beauty gesture that you will have to integrate into your new beard routine is to wash your beautiful beard. Indeed, your beard is a nest of germs and bacteria, but it also takes all the pollution from your city as soon as you go out. And I'm not talking about cigarette smoke if you're a smoker or leftover food like crumbs or traces of fat. In short, your beautiful beard, like your hair, will have to be washed! And to do this, you will have to use suitable products:

  • a beard shampoo that will wash your beard while respecting the hair and moisturizing it

  • or a beard soap if you are looking to do zero waste beard maintenance.

You can also do a beard scrub to thoroughly wash your beautiful beard and thus prevent the appearance of beard dandruff.

Hydrate your beautiful beard

Another treatment to integrate into your beard beauty routine is to moisturize your beard . And this will go through two treatments in particular:

Beard oil for a beautiful beard


A beard oil : this is the ultimate treatment for moisturizing your beautiful beard. There are different kinds, with  various vegetable oils that compose them. They can also be scented with essential oils. I particularly recommend castor oil for the beard which is one of the best allies for the beard.

The beard cream for a beautiful beard


A beard cream is also an excellent treatment to take care of your beard, moisturize the hair and the skin under the beard but also deeply nourish the beard hair. The beard cream will especially suit all people who do not like the oily consistency of beard oil.

A beard balm for a beautiful beard


A beard balm: this treatment will be more suitable for men with long beards. The beard balm will not only moisturize the hair of the beard but also to discipline it.

A mask for a beautiful beard


The third treatment you can do to have a beautiful, perfectly hydrated beard is to do a beard mask once a week. The beard mask can be done in two ways:

  • either by applying a good dose of beard oil on the hairs of your beard

  • or by applying vegetable oil, which you will find in your kitchen, such as olive oil or sunflower oil.

Always apply the beard mask to your wet hair. Then apply a wet towel and leave on for 10 to 20 minutes.

Style your beautiful beard


Of course, you can't boast of having a beautiful beard if it's not well groomed! Out of the question to have a beard with hairs that go in the directions. To do this, you will need to use two accessories:

You should know that styling your beard, and therefore your skin, will help promote blood microcirculation, and therefore have a very healthy hair follicle. The guarantee of having a beautiful coat, very shiny, very soft.

Makeup for a beautiful beard

A solution to have a beautiful beard is to use makeup for men ! You are not unaware that makeup for men has become much more democratic in recent years, the young generation of men seeing no taboo in applying such products to their face. And that's a very good thing. As a result, brands no longer hesitate to offer specific products for men, and even some make-up brands are entirely dedicated to men, such as ALTR London or Warpaint. These two brands in particular thus offer make-up for the beard, which comes either in the form of a mascara or in the form of a pencil. the purpose of these products being:

  • to hide gray hairs in a salt and pepper beard . The salt and pepper beard is indeed seen for some as an ugly beard , the opposite of a beautiful beard.

  • to make the fine hairs in the beard thicker, and thus give the feeling of having a thick beard . Indeed, fine hair in some men is not synonymous with having a beautiful beard.

Like any make-up product, this beard make-up solution is of course temporary. To do as soon as you want to have a beautiful beard, for an evening for example. Or every morning if you are really complexed by your beard.

You now have all my tips for having a beautiful beard:

  • you have to give it time to get the right length

  • it must be trimmed regularly and in particular shave off all beard hairs around the contours of the beard

  • you have to maintain your beautiful beard with daily care.

Here's a video below where I talk about ALTR London's beard mascara.
