The Short Boxed Beard is an alternative to the
for those who aren’t quite ready to commit to the mountain man look. Because it relies on your beard’s natural shape, it can complement any face from angular and oval to heart-shaped and round.
How to Do the Short Boxed Beard Step-by-Step

Repeat the last step on the other side of your face. Try to maintain a balance between both sides of your face so the beard appears symmetrical.
Use your trimmer 2 to 3 times a week to maintain the borders and length. The color and density of your beard will determine its ideal length. Trimming to a 1/4 inch is a good start. Dark beards tend to look fuller than light whiskers. If your beard is blonde or red, allow it to grow a little longer to appear full and filled-in.
