A man with a full beard style.

How to Get a Full Beard

The easiest style to grow and maintain, the Full Beard is the most popular in many locales. All you need is patience, ample whiskers and a Wahl trimmer to keep it neat. Let it grow. Let it go.

How to Get a Full Beard Step-by-Step

  • 1

    Stop shaving for 3 weeks to see if your beard has any patchy or sparse areas, or until you have a good amount of hair growth.

  • 2

    While continuing to grow your beard for several weeks, begin to add some desired shape and trim the edges along the neck and cheeks with your Wahl trimmer.

  • 3

    Using your trimmer, trim away the extra-long whiskers to create a uniform length on your cheeks.

  • 4

    On the neck, use your trimmer to create a subtle border where your whiskers become visibly sparse. Leaving these strays behind will make you look unkempt.
