How to Get the 3-Day Stubble Beard Look

Beard Grooming – The 3-day Stubble Beard

The 3-day stubble beard, or scruff look, is a great way to get that manly rugged style without growing a full beard. With the All Purpose Gillette STYLER, you can achieve this style and still look well-groomed.

How to Shave a 3-day Stubble Beard Style

Of all the facial hair styles, this look is one of the most versatile and can work with almost any face shape. It’s also great if you have sensitive skin, as avoiding shaving every day will be kinder to your delicate skin and help reduce redness. Whether you’re looking to grow out your facial hair or trim down from a full beard, here are some tips to get you on your way to the popular 3-Day Stubble Beard:

Step 1: Select a Fixed-Length Comb for Trimming

To perfect this look, you’ll need to choose a beard styler that can trim your facial hair evenly. The All Purpose Gillette STYLER comes with three comb attachments (2mm, 4mm, 6mm) which helps ensure you get the exact length you’re after.

Step 2: Trim Your Facial Hair

Use your chosen trimmers to even out the length of your 3 day stubble. Trimming hairs before shaving can help reduce tug and pull while shaving, and it can help prevent clogged blades. This beard style is typically 3 to 4 millimetres in length, so aim for this length when trimming.

Step 3: Define Your Beard Shape

Remove your trimmer’s comb attachment and start defining your 3 day stubble look. Keeping hair shorter on your neck and cheeks, will help ensure you get the best results when shaving later.

Step 4: Check for Symmetry As You Go

Symmetry’s important, so remember this when you’re defining your beard shape. Be careful not to trim too much off in an effort to look even.

Step 5: Prep Your Face

Rinse your face with warm water to help hydrate your hair in preparation for shaving. Then, lather up with shave gel on the parts of your face that you want to shave completely bare, including your neck and cheeks. Using a shave gel can help prevent nicks, cuts, and irritation.

Step 6: Shave with Light, Gentle Strokes

Attach the razor blades attachment onto your Gillette STYLER handle and shave with light, gentle strokes, to give yourself a close shave. Any Fusion5™ blade refill fits with STYLER.

Step 7: Rinse Your Blades Throughout

Rinsing the blades regularly while shaving helps to prevent a buildup of hairs and shaving cream on the blade edges and cartridge; this helps keep your razor performing at its best.

Step 8: Edge with the Precision Trimmer

On the back of all Fusion5 razors is a precision blade; use this to help define the shape of your beard-line and achieve clean edges.

Step 9: Rinse, Towel, and Moisturise

Rinse off your face with cool water. Towel off, and then apply a hydrating aftershave lotion or balm to help soothe your skin and prevent post-shave irritation.

You have just mastered the 3 Day Stubble Look!

With Gillette razors and trimmers, your personal grooming possibilities are endless.
