By now we’d suspect you’ve already made a good deal of headway into your spring-cleaning checklist.

Congrats on that.

Yet there’s one area you may have overlooked that deserves some serious attention: your face and the beard (or beard-like situation) you’ve let grow wild on it during the colder months. While you’re very well allowed to continue cultivating the scruff—if you think the UV protection will outweigh the heat your cheek-blankets are sure to retain as the mercury rises—you still ought to make sure you’re keeping it tidy.

So, for a little seasonally shorn motivation, take a few cues from stylish men who’ve been known to pick up a razor of their own:
