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

  • 1

    Don't shave for at least 2 weeks, or until you have a good amount of hair growth.

  • 2

    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.

  • 3

    Make sure to shave the neck and create a defined line underneath the chin.

  • 4

    The hair around the chin and mouth can be kept at a slightly longer length.

  • 5

    Also, make sure the soul patch is nice and squared, and connects with hair at the chin.
