A man with the lumberjack beard style.

How to Do the Lumberjack Beard

You don’t need a flannel shirt or axe to pull off this look, just a little patience and some Paul Bunyan-sized commitment. It’s manliness at its best.

How to Do the Lumberjack Beard Step-by-Step

  • 1

    Let your hair grow for at least a month, or until you have a good amount of hair growth.

  • 2

    As your hair becomes longer, you want to gradually start trimming with your Wahl trimmer. The hair at your cheekbones should be trimmed neatly to create a clean line from sideburn to the outside of the mouth. Hair that grows underneath the cheekbones should get gradually longer as you get down to the jawline and around the chin. Use different trimmer guides to blend or fade shorter hair into the longer hair.

  • 3

    Allow your hair to grow fully around the chin, but make sure to keep your neck clean-shaven.

  • 4

    The hair around the mouth should be full. No areas should remain bare.

  • 5

    The longest whiskers should be grown around the chin.

  • 6

    This look requires maintenance to stay tamed, but you can easily style and condition it in between trimming with beard care products.
