ASK SUIT: Should I grow facial hair or not?
Thank you so much for submitting a question. This is one of those things that many men are wondering about but do not dare to ask. The question here is not so much if you should have facial hair or not, but about how you should care for it if you decide to grow one out.
Growing facial hair is a personal choice. Do you believe beards provide a masculine look? If that is what you desire, then give it a try but make sure to get the right fit for you.
Beards are not the easiest thing to pull off. Facial hair does not always grow evenly and most men do not know how to properly take care of them. To have a good look, you need to choose the right shape to fit your facial structure.
If you are thinking about growing facial hair, start with a scruff and trim it every other day. This will help you grow your beard evenly and neatly without looking like you were too lazy to shave. Beards could help you look more manly, stylish, and even give more definition to your jawline. The trick is to keep everything polished.
The shabby beard look is something you should avoid if you want to create a strong first impression. The opposite sex may view it as unprofessional and unreliable. In return, this will set your first impression back in face to face situations before you got the chance to say a word.
To sum it up, a fresh shave is a safer choice to stay looking professional and clean no matter the situation. But if you really want a beard to spice up your look, here are some main things you should be taking care of:
-Choose the right beard for you
-Visit the barber regularly
-Keep your facial hair well-groomed and polished at all times
-Trim your beard often
Last, but not least, give it some time and care with the help of oils, soaps, and other beard products and tools. Having a beard is extra work. If you are unable to commit to these practices and give your beard the care that it needs it is better to keep your face cleanly shaved.
