What Is A Stubble Look?

What is a Stubble Beard

Some men have the capacity to grow their beards at an extraordinary pace. By extraordinary pace, we’re talking about the men who clean shave in the morning and see stubble growth by the end of the day. If you’re thinking that will make you look tired, you’re not wrong. 

The stubble look is a perfected version, it is cleaner, more organised and looks more intentional as you shape the edges of your beard to achieve a cleaner and sharper look. You may feel like it has gained so much popularity now, but it has been there for a while. People are switching to this style because it gives them a rugged and fashionable look without too much work.  

If you, too, are thinking of styling your beard in that stubble length, then just stick around, read this article till the end, and learn all the tips and tricks around how to get that look. 

Steps To Trim Your Beard To A Stubble Length

Stubble look

Step 1: Trim it with a 2mm -3mm comb

The first step before trimming is to find the ideal comb length. Anything between 2 mm and 3 mm would be the best length. Depending on the thickness and growth pace, some people might have to grow their beard for a while to get to that length, and for some, it would be a regular trim.

Step 2: Start Trimming

Once you have an idea of what comb size you’re gonna go with, you need to start trimming your beard. Start from the sides and then do the middle centre of your face. 

TIP: When trimming your beard, always go against the direction of your hair growth. Your trimmer doesn’t directly touch your skin, so you can repeat this process as many times as you want till you get that perfect even finish.

Step 3: Shape your beard

After trimming, next up is the shaping part. Shaping the stubble is slightly different from regular beard shaping, it involves a gradual fade in the beard length as you move towards the neckline, which gives your beard a more natural and tidier look. Avoid very straight lines or edges as it can dampen the effect. 

Step 4: Shape your Neckline

For the neckline part, you need to slightly tilt up your head and locate your Adam’s apple. Once you find it, place two fingers horizontally above it, and the spot where your fingers end is where your neckline ends.

Step 5: After Trim Care

After the trimming and shaping part, next up is to take care of your beard and skin at the same time. Use your regular moisturiser or a skin-soothing post-shave balm to keep your skin and facial hair in a good and healthy shape.

The Maintenance Part

Maintaining a stubble look

Trim - Every 3rd Day

To maintain the stubble look, repeat the same process every 2-3 days. Once you get an idea of how quickly your beard grows, you can use multiple lengths to make it perfect and find a style that works best for you.

Exfoliation - Once or Twice a Week

A crucial part when it comes to keeping a stubble. Your beard appears even better when you have clearer skin. Exfoliation clears excess oil from your skin, and removes dead skin cells. Add a Charcoal Scrub to your skincare kit to achieve that cleaner and brighter look. Use it 1-2 times a week.

Stubble Beard - Do’s and Don’ts

Let’s look at the Do’s

  • Go for a beard with multiple comb attachments

  • Go multiple times on the same area to get an even trim

  • Make a fade around your neckline and edges

Having a stubble is an effortless way to achieve that rugged yet clean look that perfectly goes well for professional and personal spaces. To make this look perfect, you need to follow all the steps and stick to the maintenance part. Use this guide, and in no time you’ll rock that stubble look.
