No Shave November: Facial Hair Care

We’ve all seen the difference between finely-coiffed facial hair and an untamed mane.  While the grizzly lumberjack look may be hip, it might not be the best fit for the office.  Don’t let “No Shave November” turn you into a caveman!

Step 1: Determine Your Beard Type & Trim Accordingly

Growing a beard doesn’t mean letting facial hair grow wherever it will. Determine how you’d like the beard to look.  Birchbox offers tips on the best beard type for your face shape.  Utilize a pair of scissors or straight razor to fine-tune the lines.
