How to Do the Tight Beard
This is a beard that gives your face some definition and character but it requires plenty of attention as you grow it.
How to Do the Tight Beard Step-by-Step
Stop shaving for a 1 to 2 weeks, or until you have a good amount of hair growth.
Try to keep mustache hair and hair around the chin the same length as the sides. The key is to find a shorter length setting you’re comfortable with on your Wahl trimmer and always look after whiskers that tend to grow longer.
