Why You Should Groom Your Beard And Moustache Differently.

It is natural for men to think that the grooming process for a beard and a moustache are the same. They both involve growing facial hair, and there are many similarities in the way you should approach growing a beard and a moustache. However, there are differences between how you should groom your beard and your moustache and if you are looking for the best results with these actions, it is important that you know the similarities and the differences.

Some of the common features of beard and moustache grooming including:

  • Matching your facial hair to the shape of your face
  • Washing the facial hair on a regular basis
  • Using moisturiser on a regular basis is important

When it comes to grooming your moustache, wax is more important than it is for grooming a beard. This is probably down to the amount of facial hair you are dealing with when you have a moustache as opposed to dealing with a beard.

Wax has a big part to play in grooming a moustache 

A moustache is commonly smaller than your beard and it is easier to wax into place. Twirling is a highly important aspect of the grooming process when it comes to maintaining the style of your moustache but this isn’t a feature that is too important when it comes to maintaining your beard.

There is also the fact that while trimming is important for your beard, it is just a small part of keeping your beard in good shape and cultivating it into the style you want to create. When it comes to a moustache, trimming is absolutely essential and it is likely to be the key element of your approach.

The length and shape of a beard impacts on the grooming process

The length, size and shape of your beard will often have a big part to play in differentiating the level of care required for your facial hair. A man with a small and wiry moustache will not need to spend a lot of time to look great but if you have a large and/or bushy beard, you will want to devote sufficient time to ensure your beard is as stylish as you could hope it would be.

Given that a beard is larger, it is natural that there are more grooming products specifically relating to the beard and keeping it in great condition. In this regard, there is a need to spend some time thinking about what look or condition you want to achieve with your beard because there are more ways that it can be shaped or sculpted. There isn’t as much flexibility with a moustache, so for people who want to be free or unique, a beard may provide greater opportunity, although there is something appealing about a twirly moustache.

At Beard Spunk, we know the importance of having great facial hair. Whether you opt for a beard and moustache combo or you go it alone with one of these features, it is important that you know the best way to care for your facial hair. Yes, there are similarities between the two but as you would expect, grooming a beard is a more intensive process, often involving more products and more time.
