Will the Bearded Trend Continue?

Watch the Oscars, scan all those baseball players on the field, talk to your mechanic, visit with your brother-in-law and you’ll likely notice one thing in common.  They’re all sporting beards!

The trend of wearing beards has come and gone throughout U.S. history.  At some points in our history it was associated with negative connotations.  Today, it is seen as a symbol of masculinity, trendiness, and (depending on who you talk to) sexiness!  But as we move into the Fall and Winter months of 2016-2017 MicroTouch Max joins you in wondering if the bearded look will remain.

We think the short answer is….maybe!

““The beard is here to stay…. [and] more and more men are embracing facial hair,” says Chris Salgardo, author of the men’s grooming book MANMADE.  Men who wear beards say it provides them with a sense of self-confidence and manliness, that it attracts romantic partners, and that beards helps to set them apart from the other guys.  Those who sport extremely long beards – or creative styles – are especially keen on standing out of the crowd.

Others, however, point out that so many guys are trying to “stand out” that it’s become the new norm. Walk into any given bar and you’ll see a swarm of bearded men.  Historian Alun Withey believes we’re near the end of the beard trend.  Withey has been quoted as saying a new class (called “yuccies”) are emerging and they’re going for a “stricter, sleeker look.”  (Yuccies, by the way, stands for Young Urban Creative.)

Others have noted that while there may be a coming backlash on beards, that doesn’t mean the end to all facial hair.  Those who are shaving off the long whiskers on their chins are often donning mustaches, and some still like to show off their stubble.

What do you think will be on trend for men’s facial hair by the end of the year?



MicroTouch Max Facial Hair Series: Meet the “Handlebar and Chin Puff”

The handlebar mustache is a mustache where the sides are twisted or curled upward (or outward) on the ends.  It is one of the most labor-intensive of all types of facial hair and a good mustache wax is typically necessary for this type of mustache.

The chin puff is similar to a soul patch.  It is a small burst of hair (or strip of hair) that is located directly below the center of the lower lip.

This combination is a distinguished look and it is often associated with a 19th century look.   It remains somewhat popular today and, with proper care and maintenance, it can be a great look for some guy.

Try the handlebar and chin puff look with your Micro Touch Max!

Happy Memorial Day from Micro Touch Max!


Memorial Day is soon upon us, and MicroTouch Max would like to say “thanks” during this special holiday.

Memorial Day is observed on the last Monday of May and it honors the women and men who died while serving in the U.S. military.  It is considered an official U.S. federal holiday and it began as “Decoration Day” after the American Civil War in 1868.  It became “Memorial Day” in the 20th century.

While it marks the start of the summer vacation season and often includes picnics and other outdoor outings, the holiday is a specific time for people to visit cemeteries and hold memorials for fallen soldiers.  It is not to be confused with Veterans Day.  Memorial Day is a day of remembering the woman and men who died while serving our country, while Veterans Day celebrates the service of all U.S. military veterans, living or dead.

All of us from MicroTouch Max wish you a happy, safe, and meaningful Memorial Day!

Trimming a Beard’s Neckline

MicroTopuch Max beard necklineIt’s not at all rare to see a man with a poorly shaven outline to their beard. Some men look better with an unshaved, rugged look, however if you do decide to carve out an outline with a blade, you have to know what you’re doing. For most, neck hair is uncomfortable and looks sloppy. So the question is, how do you know where your beard should start on your neck?

There are a few simple tricks that help men have a perfect beard neckline. One way to find where your neckline should start is by imagining a slightly curved line coming down from your earlobe. If you follow it down to under your chin, it should pass slightly above your Adam’s apple. Shaving along this imaginary line will give you a respectable neckline.

Another trick for shaving your neckline is the double chin method. With this self-explanatory method, you simply put your chin to your chest and use the naturally created “double chin” fold that is created as your reference point for your neckline.

The last trick for trimming your beard neckline is the two finger method. This method involves putting two fingers together and placing them right above your Adam’s apple. Your neckline should start at the top of your two fingers. This trick is the least reliable as fingers and neck sizes differ amongst different people. Regardless, it could still be used by many people.

Regardless of the methods you want to try there’s nothing better to give you a perfectly shaved neckline than a Micro Touch Max.  Learn more about how the MicroTouch Max can you help get the best beard or goatee possible.
