"The clear lines and sculpted edges of this look work brilliantly with a summer tan."
The perfect summer beard style is without a doubt richly defined stubble; the clear lines and sculpted edges of this look work brilliantly with a summer tan.
The shortness of “summer stubble” also counters the problems of excess oils and fluids a full beard produces in high temperatures, which leads to hygiene issues in addition to compromising the aesthetics of your entire lower facial area.
"Visit your barber and ask them to trim down to thick, sculpted stubble with as defined edges as possible"
If you’re trimming down from a full winter beard, don’t shave it all off and start again; you want to take advantage of the density of facial hair you have already achieved. Instead, visit your barber and ask them to trim down to thick, sculpted stubble with as defined edges as possible, particularly under the cheekbones.
"Once you’ve established substantial stubble, it’s best to tidy once every two or three days"
What you’re looking for isn’t the standard shadow but a style that straddles the line between a full beard and the subtlety of late evening growth. Once you’ve established substantial stubble, it’s best to tidy once every two or three days, depending on your length of growth, and visit a barber at least once every fortnight to ensure things stay sculpted and defined.
Your summer beard needs just as much love as your winter beard. Keep your face fuzz tamed with a solid grooming routine. A beard oil is great for keeping your beard and the skin underneath moisturised in hot conditions. And with fragrances such as Mandarin & Cedarwood, you can ensure that your beard has a scent fit for the summer weather.
