Dial in the stubble look

Dial in the stubble look

Stubble can be tricky – everyone has a different length that looks just right. The Beardscape has this micro adjustable blade that goes in increments of .3 mm that’s just about the thickness of a playing card. The color and thickness of your hair as well as the shape of your face can all determine exactly what length is best for you.

4 Ways to Keep Yourself Looking Good in 2020: Grooming Tips & Tricks

4 Ways to Keep Yourself Looking Good in 2020: Grooming Tips & Tricks

My Friend Jimmy always used to say "Look good feel good"

This was back in 2002 when the term "Metrosexual" was still a thing.

Jimmy was not "Metro" far from it - maybe this is why we all latched on to the phrase.

Even though Jimmy didn't put too much effort into the "Look good" part, he still understood the sentiment. Somehow universally true within our own minds. The phrase just works...

Look in the mirror. What are the first things you notice? Whatever it is most important is COMPLETELY up to you - Your opinion matters most. That's where the feel-good comes from. Jimmy would want you to put just a tiny bit of effort in that will give you the pride to follow through on the feel-good part. Here's a few things to consider.

A natural smile



You don’t need to be a model to have a great smile. You just want one that doesn’t feel forced or fake. Feel good and the smile will be there for you. Yellow or grimy teeth tell the world you don't care, so make sure you’re brushing and using teeth whiteners, especially now when most people are doing their only public smiling on Zoom.

Your nails 

Cut them! Often! Fingers AND toes (we’re looking at you, Mr. Who’s Gonna Look At My Long Toe Nails? The answer: the ladies are!). You can't slip by during th summer without keeping those toenails trimmed. Beach/Flip flops ect.. And yes, a little filling goes a long way. Trust us.

Keep hair where it’s supposed to be

If you have hair growing out of your nose and/or your ears, guess what? Nobody wants to see that. If they say they don’t notice it, they’re being polite. We have you covered. Brio has a long history of keeping your hair in check. The Beardscape covers below the belt to full hair cuts and anything in between.

 

Facial hair that complements your face’s shape

Ready to try something different with your facial hair? Now is the time!

 

The key here is accentuating your face shape, not exaggerating it. Work with what you have to look your best.

  • Oval face

  • That’s the Swiss Army knife of face shapes. You can pull off whatever style you want. That doesn’t mean go crazy with options. Keep it clean and tidy. A 5 o’clock shadow works well but don’t feel restricted with that. Experiment with your beard … without trying to look like you’ve been living in the wilderness for the last few years.

    • Round face

    Bring attention to the center of your face and let your hair grow a bit. In other words, rock a goatee. You can even extend it up your jawline.

    • Rectangular face 

    Soften the chin and add some width. Think Guy Fawkes masks with his “beardstache” - thicker around the middle of the face and tight around the rest. Fawkes had it right about revolutions and facial hair.

    • Square face

    Add some length below the chin and jaw and keep it tight everywhere else. This is sometimes called a “Hollywoodian.”

    • Inverted triangle face 

    The best thing to do is soften that pointed chin with some length, and don’t forget to round off your beard under your jawline.

    If all else fails, go with the James Harden beard. If you’re going to try something with that much swagger, make sure you can back it up by dropping 50 points on whoever you’re playing.

    Make Jimmy Proud.

    Brio is here to help! Get everything from our award-winning Smartclean sonic toothbrush to our new whitening strips to our selection of trimmers, including the 5-star Beardscape and Axis. And yeah, we even have great nail clippers, a sure-fire filer, and a never-fail Nose & Ear Trimmer!

    Brio's Best Picks for Beards in 2020

    Brio's Best Picks for Beards in 2020

    If you look around, nearly a third of all men are sporting a beard. In ancient times, it was a symbol of status for men to wear beards. While that trend has had its own ebbs and flows over the years, since 2010 the beard trend has been growing.

    Not sure what style works for your face? Looking at what is trending on the streets and big screen are great ways to identify the look that may suit you. Its easy to use a Google search and find all the “beards” and everything else pertaining to beards - from the bearded boys’ clubs to blogs and vlogs that showcase the best products to use to take your look to the next level. Beards are no longer just grown; beards are a movement.

    In 2020, it is becoming apparent that there are five top trends popping up and we think you just may want to check out the best on the block this year. 

    The Full Beard

    It takes some time to grow a full beard, so if you are considering this style, don’t expect it to happen overnight. Still, while it grows it’s important to take care of grooming. Don’t forget that even with a full beard, trimming is necessary. Forgetting to trim up your cheek and jaw line is a big faux pas. We always recommend trimming with a clean, dry, combed beard which will decrease pulling and lessen the chance of nicks and cuts.

    Those first few times you shape your full beard can be intimidating, so take your time and be careful. You can always go shorter, but growing it back takes time, so start slow. Use bigger guards and work your way backwards to protect your efforts. Caring for your beard is as important as any other ritual you have. Keeping your beard healthy takes some work, but using beard wash, conditioner and a comb will keep it in check. We promise after a few weeks of consistent effort it will be worth the wait.

    The Beardstache

    Is it a beard or mustache? It's both. The trend of the “Beardstache” is a newer creature to the beard scene and is growing in popularity. While some people simply abhor the look, it is becoming especially popular with the younger crowd. It consists of a heavily grown in mustache paired with a well-trimmed and maintained shorter style beard. Like its full beard friend, this style takes a while to perfect and wear out looking like the cover of a magazine, so be patient with yourself as you get it to the length and look you like.

    Getting the Beardstache to look just right can be tricky, so we suggest starting with a full 'Stache first and then grow in the stubble within a couple days of getting your upper lip looking as you like. If that doesn’t seem to work for you, keep trimming that lower jaw and let that 'Stache grow in.

     

    The Goatee

    This beard style may be the most versatile of beards, with several substyles under the big umbrella goatee moniker. Those wearing a goatee don anything from the landing strip to the anchor or the full goatee. The choices for the Goatee are plentiful and seem to allow individuals to create their own unique look. This style is best achieved after growing a full beard and trimming, shaping and styling to get just the right facial hair style you like to sport.

    The Short Beard

    While almost any beard style is acceptable in the workplace, in years past, the short beard was the style most accepted in the white-collar world. This carefully manicured look tends to be the most prevalent amongst men in the corner office. Still, as with any beard, this style takes time and care with trimming every few days, coming and beard oil. Most think of famous actor George Clooney when they consider this style and we hear most ladies love it.

     

    The Stubble Look

    Often referred to as the 5 o’clock shadow, this sexy look seems to appeal to the older teens and young twenty-somethings. People also consider this look to be the rugged weekend style that many men sport when they have time off. While thought to require little maintenance the stubble look still does in fact require something from those who wear it. Don’t forget to trim down your neck and cheek lines keeping this look clean and remember trimming still is necessary every couple days to keep you looking top notch.

     

    The Brio Beardscape and its counterpart, the Axis are the perfect tools to add to your collection and help you to obtain the perfect beard. With ceramic blades and lithium ion batteries, these products have helped men shape up and look their best with any beard style.

    As always, our top notch customer care team is ready to assist you at a moments notice with questions or concerns. We look forward to seeing how your Brio help you look your bearded best and don’t forget, tag #showyourbrio for a chance to win monthly prizes.

    Everything you need to know before you buy your next trimmer

    If you are like most guys, you have probably owned a number of trimmers, mostly terrible. A trimmer is one of those necessary pieces of equipment in your bathroom that no guy can live without. Even if you can’t grow much facial hair or you don’t shave regularly, there are many other trimming tasks that require ownership of an oscillating blade.
