Getting Perfect Beard Lines: Common Problems and Solutions

Beard shaping is an art—one that requires a lot of time, patience, and practice to perfect. Unfortunately, many men give up on achieving a flawless beard lineup because they aren't aware of the most common problems and solutions.

By becoming familiar with the following issues, you can avoid them altogether and enjoy a well-shaped beard for years to come:

  • Uneven growth: Many men have patches of facial hair that grow faster or slower than the rest of their beard. This can make achieving an even shape very difficult. The best solution is to simply be patient and let your slower-growing hairs catch up before you start shaping again.
  • Razor burn: Razor burn is a common problem when shaving or trimming facial hair, but it can easily be avoided by taking care not to overdo it. At X5 Cuts, we use sharp razors and take our time while shaving to avoid irritation.
  • Bad shaping: It takes time and practice to learn the art of beard shaping. When you don't feel confident in your skill level, it's best to visit our experienced barbers, who can help you achieve the perfect shape. Otherwise, stick with small trims until you feel more comfortable experimenting with length and angles.

Bringing Out the Best in Beards

If you sport a beard, long or short, you know the work that goes into keeping it looking its best. While many men choose to maintain their beards from home, having your beard shaped by a professional can make a big difference.

Beard Shaping for All Face Shapes

Anyone experimenting with facial hair will be the first to tell you that proper beard shaping differs depending on your face shape. When it comes to beard styles, there’s no one-size-fits-all approach, as specific beard shapes will complement certain face shapes more than others.

One of our most popular requests is to help clients with rounder faces find beard shapes that elongate and define facial features. We draw attention to the jawline and recommend fuller styles at the chin and shorter on the sides.

Whether you’re looking for a balanced look or want to highlight the angles of your face, our barbers have the experience to support you.

Beard Consultation

Every man deserves a unique beard that is shaped perfectly to their face. During your consultation, your barber will ask you questions such as:

  • How often do you find yourself shaving?
  • How do you envision your look?
  • Are there any celebrity influences who’s style you admire?

These questions will help your barber to determine what beard shape is right for your goals and lifestyle.

Once you and your barber have determined your ideal beard style, they will go ahead and start trimming it for you. They will determine where your head hair and your beard hair intersect, and they will clean up this area to create more definition from your hair to your beard. this will create an overall more refined look to your beard, and will let it stand alone and not blend into the mass of your head hair.

As a general rule, your face shape should suggest the beard style. For example, for square shaped faces, it is best to keep the hair fuller on the chin but shorter around the sides so as not to accentuate the square shape and make your face look wider. Men with round faces would benefit from growing the beard length wise to elongate the face. Minimize any hair growing sideways on the cheeks so as not to make an even rounder shape. Long faces should keep short beards to minimize making the face look larger than it already is. Oval faces are lucky because this is the most versatile face shape. As a man with an oval face, you can enjoy any face shape you want!

Beard Shaping for Every Beard

Whether you have a long beard or a persistent shadow, beards can make you look stylish and refined - but only when they're cared for properly. A dry, tangled, and unruly beard doesn't look good on anyone - so knowing how to care for your beard is essential.

Proper Beard Care

Proper beard care is just as important as the shape. Our Chicago barbers always clean your beard before grooming it with a gentle beard wash. Afterwards, they comb it with the grain to straighten any knots and to determine which hairs are unruly and need trimming. After shaping your beard and trimming it to perfection, your Chicago barber will fade your beard into your neckline. It is up to you if you want a sharp neckline, or a more gradient one. Sharp necklines can be harder to maintain whereas smooth, gradient ones are more forgiving. Finally, your barber will trim and shape your mustache so that it blends in with your beard seamlessly and you look well-groomed and clean.

You will notice quite the positive change after your beard shaping appointment. A clean and groomed beard says a lot about a man’s character, and suggest a put together, tidy individual. Contact our Chicago salon to find out more!

Experience the Difference a Professional Beard Line Up Makes

Did you know there's a bit of a science to a perfect beard lineup? To start, our barbers consider your face shape and the look you desire, but there's more to it than that. Sleek cheek lines and precision sideburns must follow the natural contours of your face. A beard trimmed up too high will produce an unnatural result that draws the wrong type of attention. Hazarding to trim your beard too low will place you too close for comfort to the undesirable category of neckbeard. It's a delicate balance and one our experts are known for striking with the precision of a true artist.

Trimming Beard Neckline

Since there aren't many people who have been blessed with beards that grow in evenly, it can be tricky for some to determine where a beard neckline should start and finish. This is compounded by the fact that performing a meticulous trim in this area on yourself, is much easier said than done. That's where we come in. In addition to giving you a flattering trim and lineup, we'll also walk you through how we achieved this so you can have more confidence in your skills the next time you're ready to give it a try at home.

Trimming a Beard Mustache

Whether you want a full, thick, long, and luxurious beard, or you like to keep it closer to the skin, there's one common mistake many people make when it comes to trimming a beard. That is, cutting the mustache too soon. If you're new to sporting this manly style, it could take up to three weeks for the hair to grow into this area. To make things look even, you'll want to avoid trimming here and stick to grooming only the cheek line and sideburns during this time.

If you have important plans in the meantime, we recommend scheduling a quick trim with our talented barbers. We have the tools and skills to sculpt your facial hair into any style you can imagine. The only thing we can't do is make hair grow, so this is why we recommend leaving your mustache alone until it's filled in.
