While beards have become increasingly popular, it’s important in the business world to keep facial hair trimmed and neat in appearance at all times. It’s just possible that the very last thing an important client will want to see, perhaps at a decisive stage in your relations, is an unruly, unkempt beard at your early morning business meeting. However, the good news that there is an entire range of products that can help you balance your need for a beard with the strict dress and grooming codes that may prevail in your office. Here are 8 of the best grooming products to help you keep that beard as tidy as possible.

Chances are that even if you’re growing a full beard, there will be parts of your face you will want to shave closely in order to keep things looking neat and tidy. A beard brush such as the one pictured here, is made from fine badger hair and has a solid base, helping you to lift the beard bristles to the optimum height for a close shave. They are expensive, but indispensable if you want the best shaving results.

In order to keep your beard well-shaped, comb it downwards after you shower then trim away any loose hairs with a scissors. This folding comb from Kent won’t get caught or pull out your facial hairs due to its small, smooth teeth, and can be tucked away discreetly for when you need it most.

8. Styling Product

While water-based pomades are best for head hair, oil-based pomade is better for styling of beards, as it won’t wash out so easily. Another solution is Beard Wax, and this Urban Nomads product is a great blend of premium natural ingredients, including oils, Shea butter and Vitamin E, for an all-in-one softener, balm, conditioner and styling wax. The beeswax in the balm is great for bringing that beard under stylish control.
