There comes a time in every man's life – usually 30 minutes after he's ignored the alarm clock – when he decides he likes himself the way he is. When this happens, the scruffy beard is the ideal accomplice. Making the most of your beard’s natural rugged cool, it’s an edgy, ultra-masculine look that speaks to your independence and a certain untamed attitude. Just don’t blame us if your partner finds it too tempting to leave untouched: the scruffy beard is hard to resist.
Now for the other main draw: the scruffy beard doesn't need to be redefined every day, and it doesn't care if it isn't the same length all over. Sometimes it likes to be tidied up a bit around the mouth, but only so you can eat more easily. Just remember to trim it every so often – preferably before it manifests into a full beard. Intrigued? Here’s what you need to know to achieve and maintain the scruffy beard look.
