Tips for Growing a Bushy Beard That Makes You Look Cool

Beards are the natural adornments of a man's face, that make him look more mature. Here, I expound some beard growing tips, for those of you who have finally decided to give up their clean-shaven ways.
Beards can set the men apart from boys. They symbolize many things. Long ones can mark you out as a philosopher and in general a serious person, a rebel, or a bum. It all largely depends on your styling. Short trendy ones can make a great impression.

Opinions regarding beards vary greatly across society. In ancient times, they were considered to be symbols of virility and manhood. It was a 'beard' world. To some extent, even today, that belief persists in the wide world.

It was Alexander the Great, who broke the tradition of growing beards in the west and ordered his soldiers to be clean-shaven, as he didn't want enemy soldiers to get a grip on them.

The modern metrosexual male prefers staying clean-shaven, being largely a victim of corporate conformism. Personally, I prefer growing one, as I am too lazy to shave it off daily and it keeps my face warm in winter, besides inviting some female attention as a bonus.

If you have decided to grow a beard, then I first welcome you to the fold. You do not need to do anything to make it grow, as most of you must have discovered by now. There is no need to give you a formula to grow beards, as they grow on their own, thanks to our hormones. There are no growing techniques, but only trimming techniques.

Essential Tips

Growing beards is like growing a crop on a farm. It takes a lot of patience and work before you can reap the harvest. Whatever may be your reasons for growing one, I congratulate you on this noble endeavor and share some tips.

Stay Committed to The Cause
Once you decide to grow it, your resolve should not waver at all. It takes days of commitment and getting rid of that nasty habit of shaving. See your face transforming from that of a so-called metrosexual male to a real man. Those who are not used to growing it, may feel like giving in, after some days, but a true bro never wavers, once he has decided to grow one.

Don't Give in to Ridicule and Criticism
As you start growing your beard and especially when it is in the 'whiskers' phase, people around you, including the opposite sex may complain, ridicule, and criticize. Do not fall prey to this. They'll eat their words when they see you in your bearded glory, once it's fully-grown and styled. In about two weeks, with growing density, you will get a nice harvest, which is ready to be styled.

Style and Groom It
Check out the various trendy styles for men and choose whichever suits you best. Consult and assign the job to an experienced and trusted barber. Barbers should be trusted, as they are the only people whom you allow to put a razor to your throat. You have a lot of choice, from the stubble to the goatee, to sideburns and more, when it comes to styles. Once you get your beard styled, maintain it by trimming it regularly and bask in your 'beard' glory.

Remember, that you have a fundamental right to grow your beard, which no one can take away from you.
