(BPT) - Men with worship-worthy whiskers know the best beards aren’t born — they’re made. It takes patience and care to get that nod of respect as you pass other bearded brethren on the street. If this isn’t happening, however, don’t chalk it up to your genetics. With a little knowledge, the right tools and quality products, you too can achieve next-level facial hair.
If anyone can offer advice on how to get your beard noticed, it’s Phil Wahl. Not only does Phil command respect with his own beard, his family’s company has been perfecting men’s grooming tools for a century.
Wahl Clipper Corporation has long been the authority on quality beard trimmers, but as 2019 marks the company’s 100th anniversary, as well as the launch of their new line of beard care products, they’ve solidified themselves as the world’s go-to beard brand.
“For ages we’ve heard from men who struggle with dryness, itchiness, hair loss and skin irritation,” explains Phil. “We took this all to heart and created a very special line of products specifically for men and the grooming challenges they face.”
According to Phil, “the scent is a huge selling point, but our proprietary formula of four essential oils, called the W-Blend, is what really makes our beard product line exceptional.”
Phil’s advice for a beard that stands out from the pack is to put Wahl’s new products to work, and establish a regimen with these five simple steps:
Step 1: Tool up
A poor craftsman blames his tools — don’t let this be your excuse. Whether you’re sporting a Lumberjack, Garibaldi or Van Dyke, keeping your style sharp will require a good trimmer. Choose one that has power and precision, like Wahl’s Lithium Ion Stainless Steel Trimmer. It’s wrapped in a sleek armor, delivers a 6-hour runtime and, with a series of interchangeable heads, it’s an all-in-one grooming arsenal.
Step 2: Take a fresh approach
The hair on your face is different from the hair on your head, so don’t reach for any old shampoo. While strong enough to lather and cleanse, our new beard wash has no irritants and won’t strip away the moisture needed for healthy whiskers and skin.
Step 3: Get in good condition
Once your beard is clean, it takes mere seconds to deep condition it with a beard softener. Wahl’s softener has special ingredients that penetrate the coarse whiskers and soften them from within.
Step 4: Be true to form
In addition to soft and healthy whiskers, the key to a great-looking beard is structure. Along with the W-Blend of essential oils, our beard balm contains beeswax and shea butter so you can shape your beard into the look you desire.
Step 5: Stay strong
Last, but certainly not least, the most critical product for healthy facial hair is beard oil. While it can be the finishing touch for a shiny and polished-looking beard, its real benefit comes from creating an environment of extra hydration to nourish the hair and skin. This alleviates the discomforts that often dissuade men from growing out their beards, and allows them to accomplish their beard goals.
