Short beards are the most popular beard style in 2022. This is because they are easy to grow and easy to maintain. However, even with short or stubble beard styles, proper care and attention is still needed as shorter beards can be more rough in texture and the skin beneath can become increasingly irritated, so a high quality beard oil is still a must.
Beard Beasts Natural Beard Oil will provide long-lasting moisture to the skin beneath your beard, as well as eliminate and prevent dry skin, beard itch, dandruff, and ingrown hairs. Our Natural Beard Oil is made from 100% all natural carrier oils.

How to Achieve the Perfect Short Beard

To achieve the perfect short beard, first decide whether you want your stubble to be long or short. A long stubble style will require less maintenance and can look edgy on some men, while shorter stubble will require more maintenance as you need to maintain its shape by trimming and shaping it more often. Once you’ve decided on your preferred length, here are some steps on how to achieve the perfect short beard.

Don't Trim It Until You Are Happy With The Length

The first rule when it comes to achieving the perfect short beard style is allowing it to grow out. Facial hair grows at different speeds, which is why you will most likely notice your goatee area will grow longer and thicker more quickly when compared to your cheeks and neck. 

Therefore, it is important to allow the area's where the growth is slower to reach your desired length before trimming your beard.  This way, when you do trim it, the whole area will be even and in proportion. 

Keep it neat

It’s easier to maintain a short beard than it is a long one, so take advantage of that.

Keep your facial hair trimmed regularly, either by doing it yourself or by visiting a barber. 

This will help you avoid razor burn, ingrown hairs, and prevent your facial hair from becoming too wild or bushy. You can also keep it smooth with some balm or oil which will also give it a nice slight shine plus, products like these are designed to moisturise your skin, which will help prevent beard irritations such as beard itch or dandruff

Don't beard oil cause acne? No don't worry, beard oil won’t clog your pores and cause beard acne, providing you are using an all-natural beard oil.

An added bonus is that beard oils smell great, especially our Classic Sandalwood Beard Oil!

A common problem for short beard styles is rough hair, which should be avoided at all costs. It isn't pleasant for you nor your partner, which is why finding the right beard grooming tools is important so that you can prevent it and make all of your hard work worth it.
First and foremost, if you are going to trim your beard yourself, you'll need a good pair of scissors and a quality beard trimmer.
Investing in a quality beard trimmer will be a great investment for your beard. Quality beard trimmers last years and the blades will be a good quality. Cheaper beard trimmers tend to be made from poor quality blades that end up pulling your beard hairs out, rather than giving them a clean cut. 

Shape your beard

Having a short beard doesn’t mean you can be lax about grooming. Just because your facial hair can grow out without much help from you doesn’t mean it won’t benefit from a little shaping.

When shaping your beard, it is recommended to go slowly and concentrate. The last thing you want to do when shaping your beard, is take too much off!

This has happened to myself on several occasions and it is a proper bummer, especially when you have spent a while growing it out. 

One shaping tip is too not go above your adam's apple, if you go above it, you'll distort your beards look.

Styling Your Beard 

Your beard doesn’t need any styling products. It just needs a little TLC.

Brush it with a boar-bristle brush, which will help distribute your beards natural oils and help stimulate hair growth.

When you do use grooming products, stick with all-natural ingredients that help condition your beard without causing damage or itchiness.

I recommend with a short beard style that you avoid beard waxes and pomades because they will clog your pores and weigh your beard down; instead, try using beard oil that contains Argan oil or Jojoba oil for a little shine, these ingredients will also keep beard itch and other beard irritations at bay by soothing and moisturising the skin beneath your beard, and help prevent a coarse, dry beard.

Beard Beasts Classic Beard Oil contains a scent that is both pleasant and masculine, ensuring that your beard will always have a pleasant scent.

The beard oil has a unique combination of antioxidant oils, including Grape Seed Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Argan Oil, and Vitamin E. This combination helps the beard retain moisture and grow in a healthy manner.

A slight amount of shine will be added to dry facial hair, but it won't leave the hair feeling greasy or oily.

You can also use a quality beard balm for extra conditioning if needed. If your facial hair does become dry or spiky, like stubble and short beard styles can become, beard balm will deeply condition the facial hair, leaving it softer and hydrated.

You should also use a good beard wash every now and then to keep grease, dirt and dead skin cells at bay. You can use bar soap or head hair shampoo if you want but I don't recommend it as it will cause a dry beard, given the chemicals that are in those two products.

Moisture is essential for a healthy beard and both products will remove moisture, leading to coarse, dry and dull facial hair. 

Beard Beasts Beard Wash makes it possible to give your facial hair the daily cleansing it needs without robbing it of the natural oils it produces thanks to its formulation.

Beard Beasts Beard Wash will leave your beard feeling moisturized and soft, in contrast to regular soaps and shampoos, which can damage hair follicles and leave skin feeling dry and irritated.

Our Beard Wash is made from a blend of natural ingredients and is specially formulated for your facial hair to keep it clean, healthy, and lustrous.

Acne, dandruff, redness and beard itch can be treated with ingredients that have anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, such as Aloe Vera Extract. These ingredients help treat the latter by calming the skin, reducing inflammation, and alleviating any discomfort caused by the condition.

You also shouldn't skip out on exfoliating. It is important for your beard growth and overall beard and skin health to remove dead skin cells. Exfoliate twice a month if you sport a short beard style.
