How to Do a Pencil Beard
If you’re ready to leave your mark on the world, the Pencil Beard may be the beard style for you. It’s a modern, youthful style named for its sharply defined lines, combining elements of the Chinstrap and Circle beards.
How to Do a Pencil-Thin Beard Step-by-Step
With the trimmer, carve downwards along your sideburns. Continue outlining along the jawbone and around the circle beard.
Define the shape of your pencil-line beard by trimming around the guidelines you carved.
Using your shaver, give the rest of your face and neck a close shave to emphasize the precision of the Pencil Beard.
