Common Shares Grooming Tips for Beards and Baldies


Common talks to XXLMag.com’s Good Life about keeping his baldie and beard so fresh and so clean. As told to Carl Chery. (@cchery)

It’s funny. My barber just cut my hair. His name [is] Junior. One of the biggest things I gotta say to keeping it fresh is like, man, you can’t let your baldie grow out too much, especially, you don’t wanna see little stubs, just keep it clean and fresh. If you can shave it everyday, do it. Don’t let it go two or three days. Me, I had a George Jefferson growing in, so I can’t let it grow. That’s one thing and then the beard, I think one of the most important things, if you’re cutting, you gotta know what you’re doing. If not, just go to somebody that’s just a master. My man Junior from Changing Faces, that’s the name of the barbershop [in Brooklyn], he’s a master. I’ve had him cut me on a movie set and the people in the makeup chair be like, “Damn! He’s an artist. ‘Cause he [can] take that razor and be sharp with it. So, I think one of the good things is get somebody who knows how to razor your beard and know how to do it like a true artist and if that ain’t you, then get that person that is that master. That’s how you keep it fresh.
