Beards are considered short when they are up to 2 inches or less in length below the chin, and they can be very convenient to have for many men and for a multitude of reasons.

How to Upkeep Short Beards
Depending on what style you´re going for, your beard can be maintained daily or every few days. Washing the beard is very important. You can do this every 3 days by using a natural soap or beard shampoo. After the wash you can dry it out and then apply a few drops of beard oil and massage it deep onto the skin and hair. This will allow for your beard to grow healthier by also stimulating the blood flow. An important note is to not use regular soaps to wash your beard. It can end up drying out your skin and damaging the hair.
Note: If your beard starts to itch, it is likely due to its short length once you have recently shaved it. Under these conditions, applying beard oil will be helpful to soothe the skin.
If you would like to style your beard yourself, the suggestion would be for you to make your way down to the barber and have them do your desired beard style for the first time. You may then ask them for tips as to how to style your own beard at home. This will give you a better chance of getting it right, instead of making a mistake and end up having to wait for your beard to grow, to only then, try the same style all over again.
This is it, I hope you have enjoyed these tips and tricks to having a short, trendy and easy to maintain beard style this year. Enjoy!
