How to Get a Full Beard Step-by-Step
To grow a full beard, stop shaving for three weeks to see if your beard has any patchy or sparse areas, or until you have a good amount of hair growth. Then begin to add some desired shape and trim the edges along the neck and cheeks with your Wahl trimmer.
Once your beard has grown in, to shape it you’ll comb through it to get all the knots out and make sure it’s uniform and ready to be cut.
Using your Wahl trimmer, start cleaning up the edges underneath your beard to create a clean, smooth line.
Trim away the extra-long whiskers to create a uniform length on your cheeks.
Very lightly, clean up around your mustache and mouth.
Using your biggest guide attachment, complete your look by trimming any unkempt strays to keep your beard looking smooth, uniform and neat.
