Prohibition hipsters and lumberjacks have little in common besides their common appreciation for a well-groomed beard. Wild beards are in, but harsh tangles and lint balls are not acceptable everywhere.
Invest in a proper beard brush and you’ll be able to tame those locks at your own discretion.
While searching for the perfect grooming tool can be intimidating, I’ve researched what it takes to be the ultimate beard brush and have discovered some truly inspiring products.
I recommend products that feature all-natural, single origin materials with genuine boar bristles. Those that display thoughtful composition when it comes to the ergonomics of the handle and the bristle arrangement and length also win in my book. Of course, a touch of exotic or sharp-looking wood always adds a bit to the cool factor.
