From zero to sexy: How to create perfect stubble

1.5 min read
Nothing says “I didn’t sleep at home” like a stubble beard. From Bradley Cooper to Tom Hardy, Hollywood has turned stubble from an everyday guy’s everyday struggle into the epitome of sexy, stylish cool.
 
Heavy stubble, or a 5 o’clock shadow, separates the men from the boys. Grooming and maintaining a stubble beard can highlight cheekbones on a square face or disguise a weak chin on the less-chiseled.

Here’s how to create and maintain your own sexy stubble in four easy steps:

 

1. Grow your beard out. Avoid shaving for several days to let your natural stubble grow to at least 3 cm.

2. Trim your neckline. Carefully trim to create a line under your chin. Keep your neck nice and tidy below the line. Trim the area of your beard beneath your cheekbones, carefully forming a downward oval shape. Or draw a straight diagonal line from the beginning of your sideburn to the edge of your moustache. Then tidy up the area below your mouth. For more advice on perfecting your stubble beard neckline, check out our quick guide to mastering the perfect shape here.

3. Create your stubble. Select the stubble comb of desired length, and trim the rest of your beard evenly. To find the length that suits you best, start with a longer comb, moving trading down to a shorter to find the ideal stopping point. Once you’re there, tidy up under your chin.

 

4. Maintain your stubble. Trim with your OneBlade regularly to maintain your preferred length and keep the edges of your stubble neat

 

That’s it: a perfect 5 o’clock shadow, for a carelessly-cool look. Wear it with confidence.  When you’re ready to move on, remember that stubble is also an excellent gateway style for bolder beards. Consider growing it out to get the scruffy beard.
