- The first thing is how to grow a beard on the cheek? The answer is the same as the chin. Follow the steps. You can also use chewing gum to do exercises while relaxing.

- Try to give an inclination to the chin from these cheek areas. A sharp edge cutting and regular brushing will help your beard to have a perfect ‘V’ shape.
Step-3: Give The ‘V’ Shape to Your Pointed Beard
Before going to the discussion, make sure you have these. A brush, a comb, a scissor and a trimmer. As you have done brushing for several days, it will get a slight shape by itself. If you are doing it at your home, make sure you have a mirror.
First, get an idea of what you are trying to achieve. From which location, you want the inclination for making ‘V’. Allow your scissors and comb to hold those areas. Hold the comb and apply scissors to cut. You can also use Trimmer if you are comfortable with it.
As it is the point of discussing how to get a Pointed Beard, let’s start it. As mentioned earlier, two categories are considered as the Pointed Beards. If we cover those two methods, you can modify those ( if you want something new).

Step-5: Style Your Neckline
Without this step, your beard style will be incomplete. The neckline is important because, when you have done the Pointed Beard, the beard will let everybody watch your neckline. From Adam’s Apple to two-finger away, the neckline is present.
The neckline job is just the opposite of the moustache. Here you have to brush it upwards. You have to let the end of the neckline meets the Pointed Beard from the backside of it. Take a razor or a trimmer, to give a sharp edge.
