The Garibaldi beard style is a great look for any man looking to add a dash of ruggedness to his
face. The name comes from Giuseppe Garibaldi, an Italian military and political figure in the
mid-1800s who sported the signature style. Although there’s no specific length or other requirement, here are some tips.
To grow out your beard: Gently massage and stroke your face with oil and let it “soak in” for
about 10 minutes before you wash it off again. This will leave a natural oil on your skin and stimulate hair growth.
Don’t comb it. This will only damage the beard follicles, which are what you’re after to grow your beard out.
Rinse with hot water before washing the face. This will help open pores and bring out shine. If
you don’t, it might get dry or flaky, so propylene glycol-based moisturizers are good for the face when you’re growing your beard out to keep it soft and healthy.
Take a shower once or twice a week. You can, however, skip this step for the first two weeks.
This will help your skin and hair to prepare for growth, so after 24 hours you can wash your face because it’ll be clean enough to remove grease and dirt.
Be careful about scratching and rinsing off dead skin cells. If you do, it’ll hinder maintaining
the beard that you want. So how often should you shave? According to an article on
lifewithbeard.com, to maintain the garibaldi beard style you should prepare to look like a
homeless man for around 5-7 years.
Allow your facial hair to grow out and stay the same length for a while before deciding if you
want to trim it. It may simply look better when it’s longer than you imagined and trying to get rid of the scraggly parts will be a pain.
Don’t shave around the mouth; keep it at least 1cm wide. It looks much better this way and
will give people who see it an impression that you’re very confident about your beard.
Product your beard every day, but don’t overdo it. You don’t need to spend money on all
these products that are meant for beards, but some will probably help you look better since your
face needs to be moisturized and healthy. Try Oribe London Dry Oil ($110), the Herbal
Essences Beardruff Shampoo ($8) or the Moustache Wax ($17).
Use a comb with finer teeth than others so that it’ll process the hair more evenly than using a
regular comb. Get this comb/brush after waiting awhile because of the demand. This product is
called Emerson Knives & More Bay State Comb by Folding Shears ($15).
Shave your neck area after your face, don’t before. Your hair there is not as important as it is on the face. It helps you to look rugged and manly.
Have a beard-friendly pillowcase; it’ll help you to sleep well and wake up refreshed, also
keep your face moisturized. For this, check out the Zazzle Beard pillowcase ($21), or use
nothing at all like this video suggests (it’s very difficult!).
Go to bed with oiled skin; this will make it easier to remove dirt and grease from the skin
because your pores are open after taking a bath or shower, so prep the skin before sleeping.
This way you’ll wake up fresh, rested, and with a great beard.
Keep your face in order. Always shave your beard when it is in good condition so that you
can have an evenly grown beard. Shave when needed, but don’t try to look like a 5-month-old baby because that’s just gross.
or oils to get rid of this problem. If possible get the Oribe Après Beach Wave & Shine Spray
($58), which has sea kelp extract for hydration and softness.
Hydrate your skin often or else it will start looking coarse and dry; use products like creams
Moisturizing your skin is highly important to the beard growth. When you feel it’s time to
shave, this is probably what you should do: take a hot shower, wash your face with hot water
and soap it well, and then use aftershave balm or moisturizer (don’t use alcohol-based because
they will dry out the face and damage facial hair follicles — Using a regular oil after shaving can
help if you can’t afford balm.)
That’s about the garibaldi beard style that will keep you looking rugged and manly. You’ll look
like a true man with that kind of beard! This looks best on men over 20 years old. garibaldi beard
