Scruffy facial hair was once relegated to the world of lumberjacks, 19th century theologians, and Oktoberfest attendees. But the beard is back – the bigger, the better – on everyone from bankers to baristas.

At this point, there’s an entire industry dedicated to keeping whiskers soft and properly groomed. Whether you’re rocking a gentlemanly three-day scruff or going full Duck Dynasty, here’s the best in beard oil, balm, brushes, and other grooming essentials.
