Look good on and off the field.
Beard styling is an essential part of the modern-man’s DNA. Across the country, Canadian men are letting their beards grow. And it’s no wonder; the beard is an essential expression of individuality and self-confidence. But you can’t just let your beard hair grow. Good beard care and a modern style are essential. Here at Panasonic, we’ve put together a step-by-step styling guide for three beard styles that will have you looking your best!
The Chinstrap: Beard for an Independent Style
What distinguishes this beard style is its individuality. Decide for yourself how wide you want the hair along your jaw line. The thing about the Chinstrap is that it works well in combination with other beard styles. Often the Chinstrap appears together with the goatee. The Chinstrap works particularly well for men with angular facial features and for men with dark, short hair. It also helps if you can grow a thick beard.
As good as the Chinstrap can look, it’s important to know that it only works with proper care. The hair on the chin and cheeks has to be washed regularly. In addition to the normal morning care, you should cut the beard at regular intervals. Daily trimming of the sideburns ensures a uniform look. Have we piqued your interest?

The Balbo: Look Fashionable and Suave
The Balbo has always been one of the most fashionable beards for young men. The first ingredient is the Chinstrap. In addition you will have to grow a thin mustache. A Goatee is finally added to help the Balbo to its full splendor. An accomplished Balbo is reminiscent of a triangle. Its triangular shape suits round and angular faces equally well. Since it represents a reduced version of a full beard, growing out a medium length beard is a prerequisite here. The Balbo gives the wearer the aura of an ambitious adventurer, artist and romantic.
Before you can wear a Balbo, you need to be patient: start by growing a beard. Styling a Balbo requires some finesse, as you will have to trim the fine areas around mouth to capture the full look. Finally, trim the hair on the chin at regular intervals with your trimmer to maintain the Balbo’s shape. Styling and maintain a Balbo will require a precision shaver as well as a good beard trimmer- or you can simply choose our 3-in-1 Shaving trimmer, which combines both of these functions. Watch the video on how to create a Balbo in combination with a Goatee.
The Beard: For the patient man
The full beard is the king of all beards and is a timeless classic. But it also requires regular maintenance. The full beard is nice and tasteful if it has clearly recognizable contours and is cut evenly. The full beard works best on men with angular and sharp features, as it makes the face look rounder. It goes without saying that this beard does not work unless you can grow a thick beard. Anyone who has patchy spots or thin beard hair should opt for a different style.
If you want to wear a full beard, be patient, you’ll have to grow your hair for at least four to six weeks. That’s how long it takes for the whiskers to reach the right length. Do not shave it during this time! If you have to, trim the straggly hairs, but try to maintain the length. If the hair is long and thick enough, you can start giving it contours. Comb the beard daily and use beard oil to avoid itching. To maintain the perfect shape, make you sure you are continuously trimming your beard. With our 3-in-1 shaving trimmer you can customize the beard as much as you want! Look your best with the 3-in-1 shaving trimmer!
