A Fashion Trend: Hipster Beard

Men who grow beards often do so simply for avoid shaving.

Wearing facial hair is, depending on the style that is adopted, a task that can demand more work and effort than shaving every day. And if there is a type of beard that requires attention to detail, it is the Hipster.

Origins and characteristics of the Hipster beard

The "specialists" in men's fashion do not quite agree on the origin of the hipster beard. If anything, there seem to be two styles:

First Theory: Rural areas of the United States, used by lumberjacks and landowners.


Second theory: in Victorian London, popular with educated English gentlemen.

El country style is rougher and even spontaneous. Some details are taken into account in the whiskers, such as rounding them or even lengthening and curling them, according to the ancient custom of the cowboys and landowners of the XNUMXth and XNUMXth centuries in part of North America.

Urban style is more stylish. It must be constantly outlined using scissors. It increases the volume from the sideburns until it is much longer below the chin. Even in the upper part of the face, there are those who wear it with a small break between the hair and the facial hair, to differentiate one from the other.

How to outline a style

The first thing is to let the beard grow. Not all cases are the same, but it takes approximately six weeks until molding can begin. The recommended thing at this point is to gradually give the desired shape.

The Hipster Beard demands a care calendar that must be fulfilled. The use of shampoos and other special products is also suggested, to maintain the shine and hydrate the skin of the face.

It is not a recommended beard style for men to whom the facial hair does not grow abundantly or evenly.
