To explain my terms: The "not-very-cheap imitation" of an actual ... beard" would just be three days' worth of beard, ungroomed.

How does one groom such a short beard?

Well, tidy it up a bit, or have the barber tidy it up, especially around the edges. Factor: Not all beards or parts of beards grow at the same pace.
..Or do you mean shaving a longer beard short so it looks like a 3-day stubble?

I guess that could work, too. I don't know. I just think a natural three-day beard isn't very attractive without a little work being done.

Barbers, even the female ones I prefer, won't do a better job than the wearer himself, once he is practiced at it. It isn't difficult: simply shave to create a regularly curved, well-defined transition from skin to hair, above and below the beard, but it must be done with a degree of precision. Even a three-day beard looks straggly if not 'coiffured'.

That's a very hairy thing to attempt. I don't recommend it unless one has an electric razor with the proper attachment for the job.

Dead right.
