Scalp To Beard Transplant

A scalp to beard transplant is almost a new wave type of procedure. A lot of men are desiring a beard these days more than ever. Beards are way more in than they used to be. But if you weren’t blessed with genetics, options can be limited. That is… until you look into a beard transplant. Hair transplants, you often can be limited by how much donor hair, with a beard transplant, and there being less surface area to cover, it doesn’t always take much hair. The awesome thing about beard transplants, is you can use hair from your hair throughout your beard. Although the hair will be a different thickness than the common beard hair, it will still look aesthetically like a beard. With an FUE beard transplant, there will be no scarring either. And finally, one more added benefit, for our transgender friends who are looking to sport a beard, a transgender beard transplant is becoming a more common procedure.

This is What Sweden’s Most Beautiful Beard Looks Like

It’s official. A recent competition, known as En Karl Med Skäg, has named Sweden’s most beautiful beard. And my oh my, it’s glorious. This is Memo Göcek, a beard fanatic who lives in the Täby suburb of Stockholm. He was the lucky winner of the En Karl Med Skäg competition and it’s not hard to see why. Seriously – look at that beard. If you’re ever struggling to find the motivation to keep your beard grow in full flow, just flick back to this post. The contest, which saw 10 beard-donning gentlemen from across Sweden go head-to-head in front of a panel of stylists and barbers, emerged with Göcek as the winner.  “It feels pretty good actually,” Göcek told Swedish newspaper The Local. “At first I didn’t think I would end up winning as everyone had really nice beards, so it was exciting for me.” He did admit, however, that he didn’t achieve his mighty beard with hard work alone and urges the importance of taking appropriate care of your beard: “It’s important to keep it clean all the time. You have to wash it every day.” “I do it two times – once in the morning and once in the evening. Then I use a whole load of products on it too. Wax for example. But I think it’s mostly genetic. If you have the right genes that help. My dad had a good beard.” Although it doesn’t necessarily mean it’s game over for the slow-growers among us, reaching the dizzying bearded…

What Exactly is a Chinstrap Beard?

The chinstrap beard is characterized by thin sideburns that closely follow the jawline and the chin, and are connected to a short beard and subtle moustache. If you want to go full-on with a thicker beard line, it’s advisable not to grow a moustache since it would end up looking like a full beard in the end. In this situation, you’re probably just going to be growing a beard. This style rose to popularity once again in the early 2000s, when celebrities such as 50 Cent, Elijah Wood, and Leonardo DiCaprio could be seen sporting this look. Why they settled on it as the accent mark for their facial fashion choice shouldn’t come as a surprise to you. When pulled off well, the chinstrap beard can be one truly badass look. If it’s good enough for them, it’s good enough for us.

Yep, basically a full beard. Why? Because trying to trim facial hair into a style whilst growing it can be a bit of a nightmare. Unless you’ve wielded a mighty mustache or a beautiful beard before, it’s hard to predict how your hair will grow. By letting it do its thing for a period of 2-3…

Which is the Best Beard Balm? Here’s Our Review of the Top 3 Choices

Hey there, fellow bearded bro. We know how hard it can be to pick out the right beard products for you, especially since the market has been flooded in the past 6 months by start-ups looking to capitalize on the male grooming boom. I know I’ve had some disappointing experiences with beard balms from smaller companies that have been sticky, poor-functioning or just all-round funky smelling (in a bad way). That’s part of the reason why I wanted to write this review – to give you dudes a heads-up on some of my personal favorite beard balms. In case you haven’t used them before, I’m also going to give you the lowdown on beard balms in general, so you’ll know what you need to know to get the maximum benefit from them. What is Beard Balm? Beard balms are the older brother of the beard oil. They’re a thicker substance that are designed to tackle three key problems that arise with beard-growers: Coarse hair Lack of vitality The dreaded beardruff (it’s awful, isn’t it?) On top of those, a half-decent beard balm will also give you the benefit of added control. This is especially useful if you’ve got a longer beard that goes absolutely wild without any grooming products in it. Before vs. After using Beard Balm Beard balms are typically made up of the following ingredients, each of which provide a vital function to satisfy the ever-increasing standards of the modern male: Carrier Oils Carrier oils are one of the most important…

Stubble Styles and How to Rock Them

Let’s be honest, there isn’t a single man out there who hasn’t tried to rock the stubble. Hell, I’m sure there are plenty of women too, but that’s a whole different topic. The year 2015 saw the rise of the beard in popular contemporary grooming, with popular figures like Leonardo DiCaprio, Johnny Depp and Fidel Castro (sorry not sorry) all wearing hair on their faces. But how does one achieve such splendiferous facial fur I hear you ask? Well to be honest we’re not going to look at the really long stuff, just in case be spill over into the realms of science. Instead we’re going to concentrate on succulent stubble, how to grow it, and why it’s the new trend taking over the hipster beard. The Classic Look Gone are the days when to look classy, you had to walk around with a face so clean-shaven, you had to take off ten layers of skin as well as your hair. My grandfather shaves twice a day which; given my awfully sensitive skin, just sounds like a physiological impossibility. Let’s hazard a guess that it’d probably be too much effort for most men too. Thankfully it seems that stubble is acceptable these days, so don’t panic shave if you’ve got an interview lined up, or you’re meeting your girlfriend’s parents. Stubble is in – the public loves it, but more importantly so do the chicks. Anyway, if you want some classic examples of well-groomed stubble go check out pics of David…
