Grooming is a big part of the modern man's life. Use these tips to help you look your best at all times!

How to groom your beard:

  • Trim your beard with the grain of growth, not against it. When you're trimming or shaving, it's important to go with the direction that hair grows in order to avoid ingrown hairs and razor bumps (which can lead to infection).When shaving, use a new blade every two weeks (and always after using an electric razor). Use a shaving cream or gel and apply it with a brush. This will help to lubricate the skin and lift hairs away from the face so they can be shaved off more easily. Use a moisturizer after you shave, and make sure that it has sun protection. A daily application of sunscreen is the key to preventing aging and maintaining healthy skin.If you have acne-prone skin, use a gentle cleanser with salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide in it.

  • Get rid of strays. As you're trimming, make sure there are no stray hairs sticking out from under or over the rest of your facial hair--they'll look unkempt and give people an excuse not to take you seriously! When we say "no strays," we mean no strays: even if they're just barely visible from afar, get rid of them anyway so nobody sees them later on down the road when they're looking back at photos taken during this time period; those stray hairs could very well ruin everything about that picture where everyone else looks great but for some reason there's one thing off about yours...and trust me when I say this next part...

if you let the stray hairs stay and someone sees them later on down the road, they'll think you're unprofessional.

How to trim your beard

  • Use a good, sharp pair of scissors. It's important to have a sharp blade so that you don't accidentally cut yourself while trimming your beard. Hold your beard firmly in one hand and make small snips along the outline of your beard. You can use a comb to keep the hairs in place. Use the comb to lift some of your hair so that you can see where you need to cut it. Don't be too aggressive when trimming, as this will leave uneven edges and make it look like you cut yourself on accident!

  • Trim it regularly (at least once every 2 weeks). Try to keep an eye on how much hair is growing in and where it's growing out from, so that you can see if there are any stray hairs or patches that need some attention.

  • Use a comb when looking at your face in the mirror--this will help ensure that all areas are being properly groomed and maintained throughout the process! When you're finished, rinse your face with cold water and pat it dry with a clean towel. You can use an aftershave tonic or moisturizer if desired, but make sure that it doesn't clog your pores (many products contain alcohol, which dries out skin).

The best way to shave your neck

The best way to shave your neck is with a sharp razor and good quality shaving cream or gel.

Shave in the direction of hair growth, not against it.

Use warm water to wash your face before you begin shaving, then apply cold water when you're done for optimal results.

Step 1: Wet your face with warm water, then apply shaving cream or gel. Shave in the direction of hair growth.

Step 2: Once you've finished shaving, rinse your face with cold water to close the pores. Dry with a towel, then apply an aftershave lotion or balm to soothe and moisturize your skin.

Step 3: If you're shaving your neck, use a razor with a few blades. Begin by holding the blade at an angle against your skin, then shave in short strokes upward and away from your body. Shave in the direction of hair growth, not against it.

Step 4: Once you've finished shaving, rinse your face with cold water to close the pores. Dry with a towel, then apply an aftershave lotion or balm to soothe and moisturize your skin.

Trim your hair with a clipper and scissors

To get a clean cut, use clippers first to trim off the bulk of your hair. Then, finish with scissors by cutting off any remaining strays. To keep everything neat and tidy, use a comb as you go along, or run your hand over the surface of your head after each pass with the clippers or scissors.

Don't cut too close to the skin--about 1/4 inch away from where you want it all evened out should do it!

How to get a proper haircut at home

When you're trimming your own hair, it's important to have the right tools. You'll need:

  • A comb or brush. This should be used before you even touch the scissors. If you don't use one, your hair will be tangled and hard to manage--which will make cutting it even more difficult!

  • A mirror that allows for a good view of the back of your head (or ask someone else for help). It's also helpful if this mirror is angled just so so that when looking into it from above, all sides of your face are visible simultaneously; otherwise, depending on how close together they are cut off by their frames' edges as well as whether or not there is any light coming through them at all (and therefore illuminating some parts better than others), chances are good that either part(s) may go unnoticed until too late due simply because no one saw them until after being cut off already! So make sure everything gets proper lighting treatment before proceeding further down this path towards self-grooming success!

These are great best practices. I really don't like an ungroomed beard (or any man part ;--) ) I particularly dislike those stay hairs sticking out. YUK Thanks for these awesome tips.
