Shave a Pirate Beard

Edited by Grimm, Eng, Jen M

Hi, you're watching VisiHow. Today, we're going to show you how to shave a pirate beard. As you can see, now I've got a goatee, which is a great start to a pirate beard. Also got some stray hairs over there, but that's what happens when you shave.

Steps

  1. 1
    You'll notice that my face is a little soapy
    .
    That's because I've got some soap on there. We'll need a little more soap.

  2. 2
    To do that, we'll get a bar and put some soap in our hands
    .

  3. 3
    Then rub that on our face just like that
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  4. 4
    Now what I'm going to do is rinse my hands off in a little bucket of water
    .
    Then rinse the razor off. Now let's get started with our little pirate beard. Now those of you may wonder what kind of pirate bread I am going to have because sometimes I have very crazy big beards. Well, I'm from the Princess Bride era, and I'm going to have a pirate beard like the Dread Pirate Roberts had. At least the Dread Pirate Roberts who wasn't a Pro wrestler, you want a Dread Pirate Roberts Pro wrestler beard you would go with something like I have now.

  5. 5
    To start with, we just need a little bit at the bottom - so we shave down each side
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  6. 6
    Tighten up your lips by moving your lip over your teeth, and then pulling down as you go
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  7. 7
    Same thing on this side
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  8. 8
    Use the edges on your mouth as a guideline for where to start
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  9. 9
    Remember to rinse your razor frequently
    .
    Now, this is the part where you can get creative. First get rid of this stuff right here unless you want to have some side mustache going on.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  10. 10
    Notice I'm using my tongue to push out my cheek in different places
    .
    The most important part is the pirate triangle, which is right down here.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  11. 11
    Trim that up a bit
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  12. 12
    It should be a triangle that runs straight down like your nose
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  13. 13
    It shouldn't be much wider than your nose either, unless you've got an enormously wide nose
    .
    In which case, you can make it a little smaller.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  14. 14
    We're going to trim this up a bit
    .
    This is my personal preference here. Obviously you can do it your own way. Put some soap here to make sure things are smoother.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  15. 15
    Move it in a bit
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  16. 16
    You do not want an exact triangle replica, or it'll look like your face is an hourglass and you are simply passing the time until you find a good razor to shave with
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  17. 17
    I am going to shave the edges a bit
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  18. 18
    In each of these cases, I'm using my nose as a guide for this part under my lip
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  19. 19
    Then I'm using this part under my lip as a guide for what's under on my chin
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  20. 20
    So as you can see now, I've got less here on this side than I do here on this side
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  21. 21
    So I'm going to clean that up a bit
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  22. 22
    It is also worth noting that, at least for me, I don't love pirate beards
    .
    In fact I don't even like them that much, but my son thinks they are pretty cool, and I do love him.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  23. 23
    Make sure your pirate beard is shaved the right way
    .
    If it's off to the side, you're going to look a bit goofy.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  24. 24
    OK., that's it, the pirate bread part done
    .
    'Princess Bride' style Not perfect, but I'm not looking in the mirror at the moment either. Actually, it looks pretty bad to me. There, that makes it look better. You don't need much hair - just a little bit. Some people like it longer. I don't.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  25. 25
    Next thing we're going to do is trim the top
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  26. 26
    Then the sides
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  27. 27
    Now we're going to clean the underside a bit as well
    .
    Again, be very careful. You are using a razor on your lip.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  28. 28
    Trim any extra edges off
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  29. 29
    And more or less, there you have it ladies and gentlemen - a pirate beard
    .
    Probably wouldn't make every pirate out there proud, but it makes me proud and I'm going to wear it.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  30. 30
    Shave up like this just to clean up the extra hairs
    .
    In this case, anyone getting next to you is going to enjoy the smooth of this part and the rough of this part.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  31. 31
    That's it ladies and gentlemen
    .
    When you're done, make sure you say "Arrrgh!" like a pirate.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
