How to Grow and Maintain the Perfect Sparrow Beard
Going as Jack Sparrow for Halloween? Or maybe you just really love pirates? Follow these steps and you, too, can look as cool as Johnny Depp!
1. Start growing out your beard hair.
You’ll need at least 5-6 inches of hair before you can start braiding the ends, so this look will take a while to fully achieve. To speed up the growth process and ensure healthy facial hair, add some growth supplements to your daily vitamin routine.
2. Shape your beard.
Once you have a few inches of growth, you can begin to shape your beard. Use your trimmer or a razor to shave your cheeks and sideburns down to your jawline. You should also remove most of the hair on your neck. Leave the mustache, allowing the ends to point downward on either side of your mouth. If you’re using a safety razor, be sure to use a shave lube to get a close shave that is free from cuts.
3. Trim out the soul patch.
Use a thin attachment on your trimmer to create the soul patch. To do this, remove the hair just below your lip, but only on the sides, leaving about an inch in the middle.
4. Braid your chin hair.
Once you have enough length on your chin, split the hair into two sections and braid each section. Run some beard butter through your facial hair first, and then split the first section into three smaller sections, wrapping one section over the other all the way down. Finish off with a decorative bead if you’d like. Then do the same thing with the second section.
