Although the advantages far outweigh the disadvantages, it doesn't hurt to pay attention to those little ones. details that can make your 'three-day beard' not look as flawless as it could. These are some of the mistakes you need to avoid:

Wearing it too short or too long

Generally, optimal length is reached 3-4 days after shaving.

Thinking that it does not need maintenance

The 'three-day beard' is one of those that requires less work on our part, although despite belonging to the low-maintenance, you need to spend a few minutes every day. Adjust your beard trimmer to 3-4mm and slide it over the entire beard until a uniform result is achieved. Then, remove the protector or use a razor to clean the neck (just below the nut) and remove any loose hair on the cheeks.

Ignore the shape of the beard

Adapting the shape of the beard to that of your face will allow you to harmonize your features. The cheek line can make your face appear longer or rounder depending on your position.
