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.
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.
To do that, we'll get a bar and put some soap in our hands.
Then rub that on our face just like that.
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.
To start with, we just need a little bit at the bottom - so we shave down each side.
Tighten up your lips by moving your lip over your teeth, and then pulling down as you go.
Use the edges on your mouth as a guideline for where to start.
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.
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.
It should be a triangle that runs straight down like your nose.
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.
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.
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.
I am going to shave the edges a bit.
In each of these cases, I'm using my nose as a guide for this part under my lip.
Then I'm using this part under my lip as a guide for what's under on my chin.
So as you can see now, I've got less here on this side than I do here on this side.
So I'm going to clean that up a bit.
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.
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.
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.
Next thing we're going to do is trim the top.
Now we're going to clean the underside a bit as well.
Again, be very careful. You are using a razor on your lip.
Trim any extra edges off.
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.
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.
That's it ladies and gentlemen.
When you're done, make sure you say "Arrrgh!" like a pirate.
Thanks for watching VisiHow.
Have a great day! We'll see you in our later videos. Thanks always, bye!
