We have all seen men with stunning, luscious beards, and we can all agree that it adds to the manly aesthetics of the male gender. You might be wondering then why not all men go for such beards. First off, not all men can grow a beard. Secondly, even for those that can grow a beard, luscious beards are not easy to get. The journey to a beautifully groomed beard is a tedious one, and it is filled with stages of awkwardness and even discouragement.

Are you currently on the journey of growing a long, stunning beard? If so, there are many things you should be considering, such as the time it takes to grow a beard, the external pressures from your loved ones, the complications it may present in your job, and more. However, if there is one thing you must never forget, it is trimming your beard when necessary.

Why is Trimming the Beard so Important?

No matter what size of beard you want to have, you need to trim it. This might seem counterintuitive, but there is a good reason for this. If you do not trim your beard, it will grow into a pile of hairy mess that looks absolutely horrible and unhealthy. This is something you do not want on your face, right? 

Now that you understand our reasoning, trimming does not mean cutting away a few inches from your beard. Rather, what you are doing is looking for split ends to cut them off to help with the beard's growth. You can use quality grooming scissors for the precise job. Trimmers can also work to trim your beards further to manage the shape of your beard. For instance, if you want to keep the sides thin, trimmers can help you do so quickly and evenly. 

Note that trimming never actually stops. Once you have reached your goal, you will still use scissors and trimmers to maintain your beard and ensure perfect aesthetics.

How Do I Properly Trim My Beard?

When it comes to trimming your beard, symmetry is key. Knowing that different parts of the beard grow at different rates, keeping this symmetrical is a task you must stay on top of. For example, if you notice that one side has grown longer than the other, you will have to trim the faster-growing side. Although this may seem like you are hurting the beard's progress, this makes sure hair grows evenly and looks presentable at all times.


If you want to grow a stunning beard, be prepared for a long journey. For many beard growers, a year is how long it took for them from the beginning until they have reached their goal of a long, luscious beard. That being said, keep up with trimming the beard for as long as you grow and maintain that beard. This will help ensure that your beard stays in great shape, contributing to your overall manliness that will help boost your looks and, more importantly, self-esteem. 

Do not forget that there are many other ways to care for your beards, such as applying beard oils and balms. These products will all contribute to the overall health and look of your beard, leaving you proud of the results.
