This convention stems back to the beginning of the Amish when wearing intricate mustaches was basic among those in the military. In their initial days, the Amish and the different Mennonites group in Europe, originally followed the same beliefs and habits. However the Amish being a more religious following group, preferred to set themselves apart from the Mennonites, by developing beards without mustaches.
Origin of Amish:
The Amish got their name from Jakob Ammann, who lived from 1656-1730 and was a Swiss Mennonite pioneer who wound up making a division among the Mennonites of the day. The people that followed him turned into the Amish of today and the Mennonites followers were to be known as the Swiss Mennonite Conference.
While mustaches are not permitted, facial hair is for all intents and purposes a necessity among the Amish, due to their strict following and interpretation of the Bible. Be that as it may, not all Amish men are customarily permitted to grow a beard. It isn’t until an Amish man becomes an adult or gets married that he will being to grow out his facial hair, with a long beard being a sign of an Amish male having turned into a man.
When it comes to maintaining your beard a simply trim every other day is fine. Regarding upkeep, I’d suggest washing the beard completely daily in the shower and apply facial hair oil on a day to day basis. You can wash your facial hair with normal shampoo around once or twice each week. What was at one time a straight and perfect beard, can become messy and tangled, leading to an out of control wild-man look.
Modern beard styles without mustaches:
The Chin Curtain (Lincolns)
The blind beard look is also known as the Lincoln, in light of the fact that it takes after that of the renowned American president by the same name. This type of beard does not require a mustache to stand out, in-fact you can basically develop the beard by starting from the sideburns and moving up and down the jaw line. The facial hair develops thick and fully covers the jaw line.
The Old Dutch
This is a facial hair style not for the feeble, it takes a lot of patience to develop and it truly summons consideration. The Old Dutch is styled long on the sides and under the chin, yet despite the fact that the cheeks are squared, the hair from the base of your lip to the jaw is shaved.
While trimming the mustache, be sure to utilize a pair of grooming scissors. This will give you a somewhat more controlled trim as you tackle your beard. By following your cheek line, attempt to follow your natural jaw shape and just trim off the outlying hairs outside of that line.
A generally dependable guideline is that for each month of growth, consider giving it a day or two before your consider shaving it off. So in the event that you’ve been growing your beard for 6 months, consider it for a week. This will keep you from making any hasty grooming mistakes.
