To keep your facial hair looking good, either the beard or the tash, you need the right equipment. You want to groom and maintain your hair. If you disregard your facial piece then you'll be left with an over grown, smelly, tramp like abomination!

I doubt you want that, unless you aim to shock the kids on your street so here is the list of necessities.

1) Scissors

The main chosen weapon to keep your tash/beard in shape. Some people will only let professionals attend this job but for the DIY goers out there this is an excellent start. I would say invest in a good, solid pair or scissors. Its false ecconomy to purchase a inexpensive pair because they wont last, tough to get a respectable cut and the the intricate styling some people want just would not be possible with scissors from the pound shop!

You should try to get a collection of steel scissors owned by pros. The blades are longer and quite thin making it easy to get a good cut for any desired style. A decent pair of scissors will last and give you a close cut without leading to trouble or Problems for your skin.

2) The brush

This has 2 main functions. The first is to keep your beard or tash groomed like your head hair you need to keep it brushed. Your not running a wild life sanctuary so keep it in order! You need to aim to get a wide toothed brush for your beard and a fine toothed comb for the moustache.

The second main purpose is to aid in cutting. Brush you facial hair along and cut along the brush at the required length to get an even, smooth cut. Extremely helpful tool.

3) Brush

A thick wired brush is useful for men with the bushy, big beards or moustache. Its ideal to keep the fuzzy area’s well cared for and quite a fast satisfactory way to keep it under control. Not as essential as the scissors or brush but still quite useful especially if you use product like styling wax.

4) Clippers/trimmers

Scissors are essential but unfortunately they can only do so much. If you'd like to shape or style your beard then clippers are pretty handy. Most (if not all) clippers have an adaptable length guide so you are guaranteed the desired length and with the option to remove the guard you can get a close cut when needed. The clippers also give the chance to cut borders for the you beard, an example being the beard strap.

The trimmers are essential if your going for a particular style but also required if in a rush. It is easy to get a good, consistent cut in half the time making this a very helpful tool in your armory.

5) Beard Oil

This is the tool you use if you'd like to keep your beard moisturised, clean and smelling amazing! Not only does it keep you beard fresh but it will also stop your skin underneith from getting dry which permits your skin to keep manufacturing the face hair we all love. Beard oil is a fine addition to your arsenal of tools
