Does your grooming routine need a shakeup this summer? Recreating your beard is just a buzz, snip, or shave away. 

Summer is a great time to try something new. We've curated three looks that are up to date with the latest trends. The first is perfect for people who want a longer, fuller beard. The last is great if you're looking to go a lot thinner with your look. The second is perfect for the guys who fall somewhere in between. 

Long and Strong

Why go for it: Who says you need to cut your beard this summer? A long beard blocks the sun from your skin, and it looks pretty dang good too. Contrary to popular belief, beards keep you cooler (link to last week's blog). If you've been working all year to grow a nice beard, why start hacking away at it right in the middle of party season? 

How to rock it: This is easy! Just keep your beard moisturized, detangled, and clean. The length will come. 


Why go for it: Goatees give you that full bearded look with a good bit of flair. It also takes a lot of the hair off, which is a good to give you face a brand new look. 

How to rock it: Don't make it complicated. First, create the shape of the goatee and then reduce the bulk of your beard down to the level you want.  Trim a mustache that leans on the thinner side, or you can get rid of your mustache all together. Let the hair just past the corners of your million dollar smile be the eastern and western borders. In our humble opinion, the most stylish goatees are thickest at the dead center of the chin and thin out towards the edges. 

All About the Edges

Why go for it: This is a great care free style for the summer. Your beard will be thin and not long enough to get but so tangled. With this kind of style, you can get away with making beard care and skin care one and the same. When executed correctly, this is a very debonair look. 

How to rock it: Get rid of every part of your beard that does not rest on your jawline. Make the style your own. It can be as thick or as thin as you want. 

If you have a beard style you love to whip out every summer, we'd love to hear about it
