What is a Corporate Beard?
The corporate beard gets its name due to its suitability for a corporate environment. This beard style is a full coverage beard – one that could be classed as a slightly longer version of designer stubble.
Hollywood actor Ryan Reynolds is often seen sporting a corporate style beard, and it works especially well on oval face shapes.
How to Grow a Corporate Beard
To get a corporate beard, you should let your beard grow across your lower face and allow your moustache to grow across your lower lip. While you’re growing your facial hair out, keep it trimmed and looking as neat as possible using the Gillette All Purpose Styler, which comes with three interchangeable combs, so you can find your ideal length.
Be patient while you let your corporate beard grow – when you have ½ an inch to 1 inch of growth, you’ll be ready to start styling your beard.

How to Style a Corporate Beard
Once you’ve let your facial hair grow to a length that you’re happy with, follow these steps:
Step 1: Trim Your Facial Hair
Start by using the Gillette All Purpose Styler and Beard Trimmer to trim down any longer facial hair – aim for a length of ½ an inch to 1 inch.
We recommend starting off with one of the longer comb lengths and reduce this as you go – remember, you want your corporate beard to be slightly longer than normal beard growth.
Step 2: Apply Shaving Gel
You’ll want a clean shave on the tops of your cheeks and other areas around your corporate beard, but before you start shaving, you need to create a lather with a shaving gel or foam to keep your face protected during shaving and the finish as smooth and as smart possible.
