Treat your beard right this winter

With the cold weather kicking in, it's time to prep your facial hair for the festive season. No, we're not talking about getting some of those horrendous beard baubles we've been seeing on the streets of London - we mean treating it right in order to ensure it stays gloriously glossy through the colder months. Whether you're currently clean-shaven or already have neck coverage to rival Father Christmas, we spoke to E Tautz designer and noted scruff-sporter Patrick Grant, to get his top five tips on maintaining winning winter whiskers...

By Nick Carvell, GQ


Let it grow...

"Let your beard grow out a little longer over Christmas, even if just by a couple of millimetres. The extra coverage will not only look better with heavy winter woollies, but will also keep your face from freezing whilst bicycling."


Take a nod from Magnum PI...

"Don't be afraid to let your moustache grow out a little fuller than the rest. The Tom Selleck look is quite on spec right now, but if you cant go the pure mo then a dominant 'tashe is the next best thing."


Ditch the designer stubble...

"Don't go in for beard topiary, let it grow where it grows, don't shape or sculpt. Let George Michael be your role model for what not to do."


Keep it under control...

"Give it a weekly trim with a decent beard trimmer to keep it even. I like the Philips QT4045/70 as the guard wont slip and leave you with a great big bald patch."


Maintain your mane...

"Invest in Mr Natty's Beard Elixir. A few drops of this daily will keep whiskers glossy and well-conditioned."
