Popularized by the founder of Beardbrand, Eric Bandholz, the Bandholz beard is a mustache with a full beard. The mustache is the distinctive element that hangs wide, partly concealing the mouth. Growing the Bandholz requires patience and dedication, but it’s worth it for men who want to experiment with a new look.
- To achieve a Bandholz style, grow out your facial hair for at least three months.
- With each maintenance routine, brush the stache (to the sides) and the beard (downward).
- When trimming, go with a nice rounded shape up towards your sideburns. Trim just above Adam’s apple, not near the chin. Also, sparingly trim away stray hairs with scissors.
- Waves and length are top challenges associated with the Bandholz. You can use a combo of a blow dryer and rolling brush to manage waves.
