Like the 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. The cool, non-fussy look of stubble takes a little bit of work. This is your look, so 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.
How to Shave Stubble
Step 1: Find Your Lines
Whether you decide to have clean cut lines or fade into your stubble look, your facial hair will likely have stray hairs and patches that pop up out of nowhere. 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, as well as a facial exfoliant, like our Peppermint Facial Scrub.
Step 2: Maintain Your Length
Depending on your rate of hair growth, this may be something to maintain on a daily basis. Remember, you are trying to avoid being asked if you are growing a full beard. Use a beard trimmer on the lowest or second-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 having visible stubble.
Step 3: Keep it Soft & Moisturized
Use The Art Of Shaving Stubble Balm to soften a scruff beard 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.
Step 4: Wear Your Stubble Beard; Don't Let it Wear You
They say confidence is the most attractive quality a person can have. When someone holds their head up high and oozes pride in their look, they come off as full of confidence. Wear your stubble with all the swagger of Mr. Action, and you’ll go far.
