Happy new beard! Make 2021 the year you snip that beard into shape with these six life-changing grooming tips to combat that post-iso gruff!

After several months of on-and-off lockdowns and constant changes to restrictions, it’s no surprise that the facial hair scene in 2021 is booming. With nowhere to go but the couch, it’s clear the favoured past time of 2020 was experimenting with facial hair.

But, as the restrictions begin to ease, and we see ourselves creeping slowly back into society, it’s time for our lockdown inspired locks to get the chop or re-style.

And thanks to Bulldog Skincare recording over 42 percent of Australian blokes planning to experiment with their new facial hair in 2021, it’s clear the beard and moustache trend is here to stay! But how do we make these looks a little more, uh, tidy?

Cue Jules Tognini. Hair educator and men’s hairdresser; Jules is here to help Aussie blokes combat the lockdown ‘stache without the hassle or stress of expensive barber visits.

Gaining more confidence with their facial hair looks and more and more beards creeping into style trends for 2021, the age-old problem of high-quality maintenance is coming back into play, says Jules.

“Choosing the right shaving and grooming products can be tough for a lot of guys. It’s important to keep your product list simple. I’m a big fan of Bulldog Skincare for Men – they’re great quality and you can get them in most supermarkets. Grooming doesn’t have to be complicated and these guys make it easy,” he said.

So, to help you look better than ever in the new year, we’ve partnered with Bulldog Skincare and Jules Tognini to share six life-changing tips for maintaining your beard and moustache at home in 2021!

How to Tame the Lockdown Beard

While the lockdown gruff may have caught the attention of some online, as we enter the pubs again, it’s time you gave that wild mane a little TLC. Sure, the iso-scruff is set to be a trend for 2021, but it’s only a matter of time before that long, unruly facial hair causes more trouble than its worth. So, if you’re looking to revitalise your facial hair for a more shorter, cleaner and generally more tidier beard that we all know and love, these three tips are sure to have you looking your best in no time:

<strong>1. Keep it Clean</strong>

Don’t let your beard hair grow tough and dry in 2021. By washing your beard hair routinely you can stop your hair from growing coarse and giving your poor partner pash-rash (not cool gents!). Say goodbye to that unruly gruff and instead keep your beard smelling fresh and clean with Bulldog Skincare for Men’s nourishing Original Beard Shampoo & Conditioner.
