Trimmer

It is important that a good beard is maintained and regularly trimmed of any gray hairs or split ends. It is also good for removing any traces of the five o’clock stubble that comes each day around the edges of the beard. Most trimmers come with attachments to help ensure you get your desired length. This is an important tool for those who are using them for the first time. With the different styles, you can keep cutting the hairs back until it eventually is the look you desire.

Scissors

For the most skilled artist, a pair of scissors can add texture, depth, and even design to the look that a man is going for. This is a great tool to use for the mustache part of your facial hair. A pair of clippers is hard to keep the hairs trimmed back from the top of the lip without possibly cutting the skin. Scissors will give a more precise cut. Choose a pair with a corrugated edge to help keep the hairs from slipping out of the blade to ensure perfect sculpting.

Brush/Comb

Once your beard has been fully trimmed, you will need to have something to use to detangle it. Purchasing a comb and brush combo can help fluff it up fully. With a brush, you can add volume to the hairs on your face. A comb is better for taming the luscious locks and smooth it out. Purchase one that is made of wood to keep from drying out the hairs further than they will be.

Oil

The last step and probably the most vital, using oil on your beard will help to ensure you take good care of the hair on your face and the skin beneath it. By adding oil to your beard, you help with frizz issues and dryness, add moisture to parts of your face that are normally hidden by the hairs, and can also help to keep a man healthy as by deterring dirt and germs. Also, it can add an appealing scent to help attract someone special.
