If you’re ready to leave your mark on the world, the Pencil Beard may be the style for you. It’s a modern, youthful style named for its sharply defined lines, combining elements of the Chinstrap and Circle beards.
Make it Yours
Grow your beard for a week or two, or until you reach a consistent growth. Then, using your Wahl® trimmer, crop the entire beard down to a quarter inch.
With the trimmer, carve downwards along your sideburns. Continue outlining along the jawbone and around the circle beard.
Define the shape of your pencil beard by trimming around the guidelines you carved.
Check for symmetry and tighten lines with the edge of your Wahl® trimmer. As a general rule, the Pencil Beard should maintain the width of your sideburn.
Using your shaver, give the rest of your face and neck a close shave to emphasize the precision of the Pencil Beard.
