Scruffy beard styles: the 3-day stubble beard
Beard grooming – the 3-day stubble beard / scruff
The 3-day stubble beard, or scruff look, is a great way to get that manly rugged style without growing a full beard. With the All Purpose Gillette Styler: Trimmer, Shaver & Edger, you can achieve this style and still look well-groomed.
The 3-day stubble beard look
There are countless facial hair styles, but this doesn’t mean that trimming a scruff beard will be complicated. Whether you're looking to grow this facial hair style or trim down from a full beard, here are some beard growth tips to get you on your way to the popular 3-Day Stubble Beard:
STEP 1: Select a fixed-length comb for trimming
The right comb length on your trimmer can help you style your look. The All Purpose Gillette Styler comes with three comb attachments (2mm, 4mm, 6mm) for you to choose from.
STEP 2: Trim your facial hair
Even out your beard hair length with the trimmer. Trimming hairs before shaving can help reduce tug and pull while shaving, and this can help prevent clogged blades.
STEP 3: Define your beard shape
Remove your trimmer’s comb attachment and trim your beard to define the beard shape. For the best style results, keep the hair shorter on your neck and cheeks.
STEP 4: Check for symmetry as you go
But be careful not to trim too much off in an effort to look even.
STEP 5: Prep your face
Rinse your face with warm water to help hydrate your hair in preparation for shaving. Then, lather up with shave gel on the parts of your face that you want to shave completely bare, including your neck and cheeks. Using a shave gel can help prevent nicks, cuts, and irritation.
STEP 6: Shave with light, gentle strokes
Attach the razor blades attachment onto your Gillette Styler handle and shave with light, gentle strokes, to give yourself a close shave. Any Fusion blade refill fits with Styler.
STEP 7: Rinse your blades often
Rinsing the blades often throughout your shave helps to prevent buildup of hairs and shaving cream on the blade edges and cartridge; this helps keep your razor performing at its best.
STEP 8: Edge with the precision trimmer
On the back of all Fusion razors is a precision blade; use this to help define the shape of your beard-line and achieve clean edges.
STEP 9: Rinse, towel, and moisturise
Rinse off your face with cool water. Towel off, and then apply a hydrating aftershave lotion or balm to help soothe your skin.
