The Garibaldi style is however achieved a bit differently. This style has a rectangular bottom and to achieve this growth pattern what you need to do is work on your trimming. As your beard is growing out, it will be narrow. The tapering bottom will then start crossing your jaw line and that is when you start shaping it up for the Garibaldi style. At this stage, you must ensure that your neck also has a good or at least a decent beard growth. So here is when you stop trimming and shaving your neck region. This patch of beard will support your main forefront garibaldi base.
Next you take your index finger and thumb to pinch out both ends of the beard to give it a rectangular or at least a wider base rather than a tapering one. As the beard gets longer, use a pair of scissors and comb or a trimmer to shave off the bottom of the beard in a straight line. This will get rid of the tapering patch and give you the rectangular bottom. As the beard grows, it will do so in a rectangular shape rather than a tapering one.
There is a small trick that you can use here. Once you snip off or trim off the bottom narrow patch of your beard, use some beard oil and your fingers to curl the base inwards. This will ensure your neck beard and jaw line beard are connected properly for the proper growth direction.
Once you have achieved the desired length, just use beard oil as well as mousse or wax to maintain the shape. Make sure you maintain your beard style and hygiene. Check out our 5 step daily routine for beard style maintenance for the best and most long lasting beard style.
