If you’re ready to leave your mark on the world, the Pencil Beard may be the style for you. It’s a modern, youthful style named for its sharply defined lines. The Pencil Beard combines the Chinstrap and Circle Beard to outline the jaw and mouth with a half-inch strip of hair. It gives definition to the chin with clean lines that require frequent upkeep.

Make it yours. 

  • 1

    Grow your beard for a week or two, or until you reach a consistent growth. Then, using your Wahl trimmer, crop the entire beard down to a quarter inch.

  • 2

    With the trimmer, carve downwards along your sideburns. Continue outlining along the jawbone and around the circle beard.

  • 3

    Define the shape of your pencil beard by trimming around the guidelines you carved.

  • 4

    Check for symmetry and tighten lines with the edge of your Wahl trimmer. As a general rule, the Pencil Beard should maintain the width of your sideburn.

  • 5

    Using your shaver, give the rest of your face and neck a close shave to emphasize the precision of the Pencil Beard.
