BOLD & BEARDIFUL
Walk any section of the mean streets of Miami and one thing becomes immediately apparent: Facial hair is
fiercely fashionable. Below, top stylist and tastemaker Elena Linares of RazzleDazzle Barbershops gives us
some quick tips on monthly maintenance.
T I P S BY E LE N A L I N A R E S
Let it grow, let it grow, let it
grow: If you’re growing your beard
for the first time, leave it untouched
for 4-6 weeks. This allows the hair to grow in
evenly for the perfect trim.
To the touch: Beard oils (like Sexy
Beard Oil) are a must-buy for a truly
epic, healthy and well-groomed beard.
It tames and conditions hairs to make them
softer and shinier.
2. Wax on, wax off: For the clean,
baby skin every man (and their partner)
desires, try waxing around your beard
to keep your eyes, nose and ears hair-free.
Learn your shapes: Consider
getting a consultation after the first
month of beard growth. For as many
types of face shapes out there, there are just
as many beard styles. A Master Barber can
help you choose the one that best suits you.
3. Keep it clean: Give your beard a
good scrub-down several times a
week with a gentle cleanser to yield
maximum sheen and shapeliness.
Maintenance: Trimming is a must to
keep away from the caveman look; do
it yourself or get it done professionally
at least twice a week for maximum impact.
Training: To get that much-coveted
downward-facing facial hair, engage in
daily combing with a beard brush.
8. Fade Away: For a seriously sculpted
look, a Miami man can’t go wrong
with a fade. Graduating to smaller
clipper attachments makes your manly mane
mesh perfectly with your haircut.
9. Skin is in: Having a beard
doesn’t excuse you from a rigorous
dermatological regimen. Products like
RazzleDazzle Alum Block help tighten the skin
in a way that lets your beard shine!
10. Living on the edge: Although
obviously home products work
just fine, nothing really sculpts
and satisfies like a straight razor shave under the
watchful eye of a master barber. For a complete
experience, try following up with a facial!
