There is more to grooming a beard than trimming it. Invest in a good beard brush and brush your beard often. Train it to take a solid, balanced shape with all hair working in harmony. Try blow drying your beard, using different products on it, and trimming away stray hairs. Above all, keep your beard immaculately clean at all times.

Choose a costume carefully, but save the outlandish for Halloween. Dress sharply in good quality clothing that suits you, your beard, and your overall look.
