Grow your own Five O'clock Shadow in four steps.
- Nothing could be easier – avoid your shaver for a day or two, or until your stubble beard grows in.
- Going to the dark side with class does require some effort. Once you’ve got the perfect amount of stubble, around 3-5mm, maintain the length of your beard with your stubble trimmer– a trimmer with a zoom wheel will help you achieve your ideal length.
- After trimming your beard, use a mini foil shaver to create a line under your chin. Keep your neck nice and tidy below that line with your Philips rotary shaver, using steady pressure, and a gentle, circular motion.
- Shave the area of the beard beneath your cheekbones with a mini foil shaver, carefully forming a downward oval shape–or draw a straight diagonal line from the beginning of your sideburn to the edge of your mustache.
Styling/maintenance of the Five O’clock Shadow
Use your Stubble Trimmer Pro to maintain the length and keep the edges of your beard neat. Repeat Step 3 as needed for a clean neckline.
From zero to sexy: the Five O’clock Shadow in a nutshell
Nothing says “I didn’t sleep at home… or alone” like the 5 O’clock Shadow beard. From Clint Eastwood to George Clooney, Hollywood has turned stubble from an everyday guy’s everyday struggle into the epitome of cool.
Let’s face it, a real 5 O’clock Shadow separates the men from the boys; you either have what it takes or you don’t.
Grooming and maintaining a 5 O’clock Shadow is perfect for highlighting cheekbones in a square face, or for disguising a week chin on the less chiseled.
12 Hours Later…
If you really want to see what you’d look like with a 5 am shadow beard, there are 2 ways to go about it:
1 – set your alarm
2 – If you’re still up at 5am you really shouldn’t be checking yourself out in the mirror, or alone alone…
72 Hours Later - The 3-Day Beard
There is some debate as to whether or not the 3-Day Beard is a face full of glorious stubble or just a baby beard. We like to think of it as the 5 O’clock Shadow’s big brother beards –and who wants to break up a family?
Like any big brother, the 3-Day Beard has been around a bit longer, is a bit bigger and looks a bit rougher. It can also do everything the 5 O’clock Shadow beard can do, but better.
