Craig David Style

Here is how you can get the beard design worn by Craig David, if you are familiar with R&B star Craig David, there's a good chance that you love his music.

And a better than average chance, if you are a male, that you have envied his stylish beard.

Whether you have already tried growing a beard and given it up, or you have been curious about growing a beard but are worried it won't suit you, you'll find that growing a beard to match that of David's design is surprisingly easy.

If you are clean shaven, the first thing that you need to do is get a good growth of hair to work with.

Luckily for this look, you'll find that not a lot of hair is actually needed; most men will be able to get the growth needed within two weeks at most.

Grow a little more hair than you think you need to get this look; remember that you can always trim it back.

When you want to get David's clean look and sharp lines, all you really need are a razor and a pair of beard trimming clippers.

Good beard trimming clippers are worth what you pay for them, so make sure that you spend some cash and get a good model.

How To Style

Start by clenching your jaw and using your finger tip to trace where your jaw line is.

Looking at the path your finger takes will give you a good idea of where to to start, so guide your clippers along that line.

Don't press to hard; good beard clippers will do all of the work for you.

To create the goatee part of the beard, use your natural lip line to guide it. If necessary, switch from side to side to make sure that you are getting a symmetrical look.

Initially pulling out the shape of this kind of beard is the trickiest part, so don't be afraid to take it slow. Work until you see the distinct lines start to emerge and then help them stand out a little more.

To get the Craig David look, the beard should be joined up with the sideburns, and once you have the basic line sculpted out and tidied, you can use a normal razor to finish out the rest and clear off excess.

Always shave towards the beard; just remember to take it slow so you don't ruin all of your hard work!

Getting a beard like Craig David's is fairly simple. Remember that to keep it looking good, you will need to do daily maintenance, so keep your clippers and your razor handy.
