Draw some boundaries -- and respect them
Growing out a beard is in no way a low-maintenance look. You still have to shave, now with the added responsibility of drawing symmetrical lines. On your face. While different face shapes will require different shaping techniques, one golden rule is that your beard shouldn’t get anywhere near your neckline. Simply put: it looks unkempt, rather than hot lumberjack.
Instead, envision that your left ear is point A, and your right ear is point B. Now, place two fingers above your Adam’s Apple (about an inch and a half) and consider this your point C. Everything in this semicircle is safe to grow into stubble. Anything below it on your neckline should go.
A little stubble in this region is okay from time to time, but when you’re ready to clean it up, a razor like the Bulldog Skincare Original Bamboo Razor has five tempered steel blades and a precision trimmer -- that way the lines will stay clean. As for drawing boundaries, show your Mother Earth some respect by keeping one between your daily life and the great outdoors. The Bamboo has an eco-friendly bamboo (naturally) handle, unchromed metal components, and recycled stock packaging (even its ink is environmentally friendly) -- making it one of the greenest options around. It's a great way to reduce the 2 billion plastic razors sent to the landfill each year.
