How to Do the Olde English Beard
Not many styles can provide both ruggedness AND sophistication but the Olde English does it. Incorporating elements of the Full Beard , Door Knocker and Mutton Chops , the Olde English Beard provides full facial coverage while highlighting the cheekbones.
How to Do the Olde English Beard Step-by-Step
Stop shaving for 3 weeks to see if your beard has any patchy or sparse areas. The goal is to get a good amount of hair growth.
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.
Using your trimmer, trim away the extra-long whiskers to create a uniform length on your cheeks and sideburns. Many choose to wear the Olde English with thick growth.
Using your trimmer, trim straight, vertical sideburns, stopping approximately 1 inch above your jawline.
Using your trimmer, create a vertical line of hair about 1/2-inch wide from the corner of the mouth to your chin. Do the same on both sides, paying close attention to keeping them even.
