Growing a beard takes time and patience and it’s not going to be magnificent from day one. Facial hair grows at different rates and in different directions so you’ll need to wait a while for it to bed in and get an even coverage. When you first start growing, leave it untouched and untrimmed for the first 4-6 weeks. As tempting as it is to trim and style before then, you will just prolong this initial phase.
While you may not initially be trimming the main bulk of the beard, around the edges, your jawline or neck may need some tidying up from day 1. Having a good quality beard trimmer to hand, even at this early stage will make it much easier to maintain a respectable look at all times. Set to its lowest setting, the beard trimmer can remove any hairs where the beard extends too far down the neck and create a nice clean edge and start to build out the beard shape.
