Beard Oil - Great for giving your beard a big-time energy boost. The oil softens the beard hair, and brings a ton of moisture to the hair and the skin underneath so you don’t get beard flakes. If you’ve got a huge beard, using a beard oil can be critical.

Beard Balm vs. Beard Oil

Beard balm is a putty-like substance designed to hydrate, shape and style your beard so it softens the strands and moisturizes the skin beneath. It offers a thicker texture than beard oil, meaning it’s better for shaping and styling your beard hair to keep it in place all day. Think of a good-quality beard balm like a leave-in conditioner for your beard. Choose beard balm instead of beard oil if you want:

  • A stronger styling hold to keep your beard in place for longer.
  • A tamer that helps long beards look neater with fewer fly-aways.

Unlike balm, a great beard oil penetrates through the hair and skin deeply, so it’s a better choice for guys with moisture-zapped skin and hair where deep hydration is needed. It may also be the better choice for guys who experience dry, chapped skin in the winter. Choose beard oil instead of beard balm if you want:

  • A smooth formula that smooths beard hair but provides no styling hold.
  • Deep hydration that helps reduce itchiness, redness and irritation.
  • A simple treatment for beard dandruff and chin flakes.

How To Maintain & Grow A Beard

Stop Shaving - We all have to start somewhere. The first step to growing a legendary beard is to just let it grow. Give yourself a few weeks (we recommend at least 4) to see what you have to work with.

Identify Your Face Shape - You need to choose the right facial hairstyle for your face shape. Is your face square? Round? Triangular? Once you identify your face shape, you can start looking for facial hairstyles that will complement your features.



Be Patient - By far, one of the biggest mistakes a guy can make when growing his facial hair is not giving it enough time to flourish. Keep in mind that it can take months—maybe an entire year—for a patchy beard to fill in properly.

Encourage Beard GrowthFirst and foremost, focus on eating a balanced diet with a healthy amount of protein. Biotin supplements are also shown to improve hair health and growth, including facial hair. Stimulating your hair follicles with an amazing beard brush is also a great way to encourage growth. Last but certainly not least, get lots of sleep!

Keep Your Beard & Skin Hydrated - Keeping your face and beard hydrated and healthy is key to not only increasing beard growth but also keeping it looking amazing. Beard balms and oils are your beards best friend!

How To Trim Your Neck Line

Neglecting your neckline is a surefire way to ruining a perfectly good beard. Here's a real quick recap on how to tighten it up! Before you start trimming your neck area, you first need to establish a neckline. Here’s how to do it in two easy steps:

  • Step One: Place your middle finger on top of your Adam’s apple and rest your index finger on top. Your neckline should start above your index finger. 
  • Step Two: Trace an imaginary line starting from behind the ears and jaws until it meets at the middle point of your neck in a shallow “U” shape. Anything below that line should be shaved.

Once you’ve established your neckline, you can take your beard trimmer and start tidying things up. Check your progress as you go, and always start off with a longer guard setting. You can’t undo your actions if you accidentally go too short. Don't forget your Stubble Buddy to clean up the mess.

How To Fade Your Beard

The goal of fading a beard is to make it transition seamlessly into your neckline, sideburns or mustache. Here’s how to do it, using your sideburns as an example:

  • Step One: Start with a clean, dry beard. Brush the tangles out with a comb to avoid hitting any snags.
  • Step Two: Use a guard setting that is one below the length of your beard. Start creating a taper by trimming an inch or so above the jawline.
  • Step Three: Now, use a shorter guard setting to trim another inch towards your sideburns. 
  • Step Four: Repeat the process until you’ve seamlessly blended your beard into the tops of your sideburns.
