Our Guide to a Minimalist Beard

The Captain’s Beard was founded on big beards but we also know that huge beards might not be for everyone, and that’s cool. Maybe you want to go the route of the tidy minimal beard and skip the complicated styling and be done with the bushy bulk. So if you’re going to do it small, do it right!


The real key is the length. Too short and you’re working with a corporate beard, too long and you’re back to that epic proportions that require too much maintenance for you. This style will still require trims and shape-ups to keep it looking awesome, but they are fewer and farther between, and don’t need to be overly complicated. You’re really just going to need a good pair of trimming scissors or a beard trimmer, and aim to maintain the natural shape and length, take off any wiry hairs that are sticking out, and cut down the split ends and fly-aways. Nothing fancy or complicated about it.

This also means your basic grooming routine for getting your beard under control is going to be easy and quick.

The moustache is also key here; you’re not shooting for a big handlebar or anything that will need styling. You’re going for a natural mustache, which means you’re going to let it fall naturally into place, and keep it trimmed and neat.


Beard care products are badass and crucial. We should know. But if you’re going the way of the minimalist, you don’t need much to get the job done.

Our recommendation? Get yourself a good beard oil, and let it ride.

If that isn’t the definition of minimalist grooming, well what is? Rocking this style isn’t for everyone, but if you’re looking to hang on to your beard and cut down on the clutter, it might be time to go back to basics.
