If you're on the beard bandwagon (the fuller, the better), you'll know facial hair demands care and attention.

And now there are an increasing number of tools, lotions and styling aids to keep things on the right side of tramp chic.

From Beardsley's specialist shampoo to Philips Laser Guided trimmer, there's a product out there for every bearded bloke.

You can trust our independent reviews. We may earn commission from some of the retailers, but we never allow this to influence selections, which are formed from real-world testing and expert advice. This revenue helps to fund journalism across The Independent.

For minimal maintenance, pick up a Baxter of California Beard and some Tweezerman Moustache Scissors. Daily combing and tweaking will stop things looking straggly. If it's all feeling a bit dry and itchy, Murdock London's Beard Moisturiser will sort you out. And if you see any greys (and you're not ready to go full Clooney), Just For Men's Dye will do the job.
