1 SHAPE UP

“To shape a short beard, start by shav­ing the chin and neck hair,” says Guastella. “Avoid de­fined lines – this will make it look too neat. I pre­fer a nat­u­ral look and this is achieved by grad­u­ally us­ing the lower clip­per lev­els on the chin area to re­duce the de­fined line on the chin.”

2 HEAD OFF DRYNESS

A stub­bly face takes a lit­tle more time and ef­fort to mois­turise – but it’s worth it. “Shav­ing is a form of ex­fo­li­a­tion and the mois­turiser will cover the shaved area,” says Guastella. “With a short beard the mois­ture does not reach the skin as eas­ily so it can be­come dry and itchy.”

3 CHECK YOUR NECK

“There is a stage af­ter about a week when the hair stabs the skin, es­pe­cially around the neck area, and that can make it feel itchy,” says Guastella. “It could also be a lack of mois­ture.” You may have fa­cial hair but mois­tur­is­ing reg­u­larly still mat­ters, so don’t get lazy.
