How to Grow a Beard Without Looking Like Sasquatch

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to Vox.com, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Welcome to Guys Buys, our new weekly segment dedicated to our male readers and the ladies who shop for them. Each week, our Menswear Specialist Mickey Sery will bring a roundup of seasonal products for men—whether you need some style assistance or just like to shop.


Fall: that time of year when guys whip out the flannels and grow out their beards. If you've never attempted facial hair, now's the perfect time to try—but depending on the texture of your whiskers, you might need help to keep them in order. We've rounded up ten products to help you tame that facial hair so that you don't look like a beast.

Pro tip: Let your hair grow for a couple of weeks, then go to a beard-friendly barber to have it trimmed and shaped. You can follow the shaving lines the professional made, which that takes a lot of the guess work out of it.
