Growing a thick, full beard is the dream for a lot of men out there. It adds poise and masculinity to your look, helping you to seem capable and confident no matter what the situation. It’s no wonder, either — with so many movie stars and musicians rocking facial hair, the beard is practically impossible to miss in today’s pop culture landscape.
Fortunately, there are a few straightforward, easily applicable techniques for softening your beard that can save you from the uncomfortable urge to scratch and itch all day long. No matter who you are, if you want to sport a proper amount of growth, it’s vital to understand how to soften your beard. The Internet is full of tips on the subject, to the extent that it can often be hard to figure out who even knows what they’re talking about and who doesn’t. That’s why here at Urban Beard we’ve decided to put in the time doing research in order to present you with the perfect guide to softening your beard.
There are two aspects to be considered for each face shape with regards to the kind of beard you should grow; and since each face shape comes with its own strengths and weaknesses, it can be tricky to know what to do in each case. The first thing to keep in mind is that in general, you’ll want to balance out any notable poor proportions that come with your face shape. The second concept to get your head around is that you’ll also want to highlight the most appealing aspects of your face. This isn’t just useful for being attractive to women at the bar — studies have shown that men who are more conventionally attractivetend to do better in professional and other work-related settings, not just in their personal life, so it’s in your interest to make yourself look as appealing as possible.
