How to Do the Crusader Beard
If you’re on a mission to look good, the Crusader might be for you. Falling between the Tight Beard and the Full Beard , the Crusader style provides fuller coverage along the jawline and cheeks.
How to Do the Crusader Beard Step-by-Step
Don't shave for at least 2 weeks, or until you have a good amount of hair growth.
Once your facial hair has reached a significant length, use your Wahl trimmer or Wahl shaver to create a hairline that expands out at the end of the sideburns. The lines should run just under the cheekbone and connect with hair growing down from the corners of your mouth.
The hair around the chin and mouth can be kept at a slightly longer length.
