When is the Best Time to Start Growing a Winter Beard?

Winter calls for a rugged beard; but when is the ideal time to begin your beard journey? In this blog I'll go over my suggestion for the perfect time to start your winter beard, as well as some of the reasons why you should start growing a beard this fall.

1. Beard Growth Basics

On average, our beards grow roughly half an inch every month. My recommended start date is September 23rd. For most men, starting in early fall should ensure a hearty 1.5-inch beard by Christmas.

2. Preparation is Key

Getting started early means you're ahead of the curve. You'll have plenty of time to experiment with grooming, trimming, and styling to achieve your preferred winter look.

3. Nature's Cold Defense

A well-timed beard is about more than just style. It's a built-in guard against the elements, if you live somewhere cold or windy, you'll thank yourself this winter.

4. Honor Tradition

Growing a beard for winter isn't just a trend; it's a tradition rooted deep in history, and an ode to the generations that came before us.

5. Experiment with Beard Products

Consider using a beard oil once that beard-itch starts to set in. For some guys itchiness and beardruff are the biggest hurdles to sticking with their new beard. Although I'm a little biased towards my own beard oils, there are plenty of great brands out there. Just be sure to find one that you like.

In conclusion, early fall is the best time to start growing your winter beard, so let your beard be a testament to strength and tradition.
