Use it every day and throughout the day to keep your beard in the best shape possible.
Andy Tough, head barber at The 33rd on how to achieve the perfect textured style:
Towards the end of 2016 we saw a move away from the popular and traditional look of side partings and quiffs to more short and textured styles.
These styles can be created in a variety of ways depending on the individuals face shape; hair type and personal style, however all have a much drier, matte finish.
To achieve this look you will need a couple of products; a sea salt spray that you dry into your hair and a matte clay to finish. We suggest The 33rd North Sea Spray and 1st Degree Grooming Clay.
Step 1: Spray a generous amount of North Sea Spray into clean, damp hair, working through the hair from root to tip.
Step 2: Set your blow drier on a high heat and use a low power. Tease your hair using your fingertips from the crown to fringe creating natural twists in the hair until the hair is completely dry.
Step 3: Apply a pea-sized amount of 1st Degree Grooming Clay to the palm of your hand. Spread this evenly between your hands.
Step 4: Using the product on your fingertips, rake your fingers through the hair to evenly coat all the hair in grooming clay.
Step 5: Arrange the hair into the desired direction and style, add more product if required.
