How To Shave with Stubble
Don’t go at it alone
Like a rough and tumble star of your favorite action film, the manliness of intentional stubble is well documented and a continuing trend amongst men. In the world of facial hair, anything goes. Stubble is no exception. But it is a slippery slope from maintained stubble to oops I forgot to shave. You don’t want to look like you rolled out of bed and ran out the door. The cool, non-fussy look of stubble takes a little bit of work to look deliberate. This is YOUR LOOK, own it like a boss. Mr. Action makes that stubble work for him. You can too. Here are a few tips on how to maintain the perfect stubble.
1. Find your lines: Whether you decide to have clean cut lines or fade into your stubble look, your beard hair will not grow into the perfect stubble. There are always those stray hairs and patches that pop up out of nowhere to ruin your look. Hedge your stubble by making sure you are lining your look and cleaning up any areas that are stubble adjacent and just distracting from your look. Use a beard trimmer to fade your lines as needed and a razor to help create clean sharp edges where needed. Use The 4 Elements of the Perfect Shave to help create smooth skin around your stubble.
2. Maintain your length: Depending on your beard growth, this may be a daily thing. Remember, you are trying to avoid being asked if you are growing a beard. Use a beard trimmer on the lowest or second to lowest setting to keep your stubble looking sharp. Your setting will depend on the thickness of your hair and how short you can go while still appearing to have stubble.
3. Keep it soft and moisturized: Use our Stubble Balm to soften stubble and moisturize skin underneath the beard hair. This unique product is great for intentional stubble as well as slightly longer beard lengths should you decide to grow in a different direction.
4. Wear your stubble, don’t let it wear you: They say confidence is the most attractive thing about a person. I have to admit, when someone holds their head up high and oozes pride and confidence in their look, I’m sold. Wear your stubble with all the swagger of Mr. Action. Stubble maintenance is just the beginning of creating your grooming look. Make sure to finish off your hair with one of our four styling products to tie it all together and conquer the world… or maybe just work, but conquer none-the-less my friends.
