How To Get The Scruffy Look

     The 'unshaven' or scruffy look has been around for ages and probably one of the most frequent look that I've been sporting for many years.  Oftentimes it's because I'm too lazy to shave, but many times because I feel that having hair on my face is like having clothes on -- i look better and I feel safer. Hah!

I have been sporting the scruffy look for as long as I can remember...

     Folks, this time Show Me Your Look Today will talk about the Scruffy Look.

Who qualifies for the scruffy look?

     If you got an angular or a chiseled face, you're in.  This look is good for guys with prominent facial features -- like strong jawlines or distinct cheekbones.  However, this maybe is not meant for men with rounder faces or soft features.  And most definitely not good for those with scarce or too little facial hair.

Many celebrities have been spotted sporting this look.
Check out one of the coolest guys, David Beckham.

How to get the scruffy look?

     Just let the hair on your face grow evenly.  Keep it neat, keep it clean -- because you don't want to look dirty and itchy.  You may shave off some areas in the neck to give more definition to your jawline as well as some areas in your cheekbone.  The trick is to use the facial hair to give your face a sculpted look.  

Hugh Jackman has also been sporting the scruffy look.

How to maintain the scruffy look?

     You can use a beard trimmer or an electric shaver (with height adjustment) to trim your facial hair if it gets too long.  Or if you can indulge, go to the barber shop and let the professionals do the trimming for you.  Just remember to trim your facial hair when it gets too long or unruly or start over by shaving it all off.

     The scruffy look brings a cool contrast to a guy's overall style, with the nice clothes contrasting with the 'tough guy' appeal.  If I'm going somewhere and I plan to look scruffy, I usually shave my face 4 days before and just trim the edges on the day itself.  I don't exactly have an angular face or strong features, what I do is I use my facial hair to give that illusion.

     I'll leave you guys with one of the coolest bands that I listen to every now and then.  Adam Levine, the lead vocals of Maroon 5 is known to constantly sport the scruffy look.  He is one of the coolest guys too, a style icon for many of us.

     Hope you learned something today fellas!  Let me know how this look worked for you on the comments' section below.

Hey, Myke!... Sorry!
I'm in a rush "crazy "!... rsrsrsrs
It is the all day walking back and forth ... Seeing these shops... And the money running out ... rsrsrs
Yesterday I spent the entire day running from shop to shop, I came home late. I went straight to bed, sleep!
Today was like yesterday, but I came home early!
I'm so tired!
And you, my friend, who tells me?
And the shopping rush?
How is the excitement of Christmas?
Wow... I'm fainting!!
... "Big Bang"...
