Spring has finally arrived and you know what THAT means! Inspecting the lawn and discovering all of the surprises Old Man Winter has left for you - leftover leaves, branches, random pieces of paper and fast food containers (omg!). You grab the rake, pruning shears, lawn mower (and, possibly some fertilizer) to tidy up the sad, damp ground…hoping that the effort you make clearing up will reward you with a beautiful green lawn.
At Sam’s Natural, we feel the same way about your beard.
Throughout the winter, you have had time to grow a beard of epic proportions to protect your neck from the cold winds and keep your chin toasty warm, but now it’s time to prune that bad boy. Once you envision what your ideal summer beard should look like, you can take the necessary steps to turn your dream into a reality.
As with lawn care, you will need the proper tools to do the job – the comb will be your rake, the scissors will be your pruning shears, the trimmer will be your lawn mower and Sam’s Natural Whisker Wash, Moustache Wax and Beard Oil will be your fertilizer.
With these tools, you can be rewarded with a beautifully trimmed beard. Really.
And now, you may be asking, how do I begin this amazing spring transformation??
Take a long, hard look at the length, girth and condition of your beard. Decide what the plan is. Let it grow longer? Trim it close? Create a different shape? (We recommend “The Batman”, but that’s just us.)
Use your wooden comb to work through the brambles and tangles of your beard. Once you have the debris cleared out, you’re all set to start cleaning.
Grab the trimmer and shape your beard into desired style. Maybe you prefer the French Fork? Or the Van Dyke? Possibly the Verdi? (Consider this infographic a guide towards Hairy Greatness: http://bit.ly/23a2klN) Seize the scissors and make any necessary fine tune trimming.
Prep your beard with warm water. Squeeze a nickel sized amount of whisker wash (amount will vary depending on length) into the palm of your hand, work into a lather and apply throughout. Rinse well and towel dry.
Place a few drops of beard oil into your hand and rub your hands together to warm the oil. Work through your beardy goodness.
If you need more stylin’ for your crumb catcher, scoop a tiny bit of moustache wax out of the jar and apply to the ends. Be creative! (Perhaps The Handlebar, Hercule Poirot or Fu Manchu?)
Stand back and gaze with amazement at how impressive your beard is. Stand in front of the mirror and post obligatory social media selfies. While waiting impatiently for likes and comments, clean up your space. (yes, the tools and crazy trimmed hairs must go!)
Congratulate yourself on a job well done and acknowledge that Spring cleaning has finally come to your face. Now, go and show off that newly manicured beard!
