How To Choose A Beard

Facial hair isn’t for everyone. But much like a haircut, once you figure out what you can do then you become curious. When you first start growing facial hair you probably never dreamed of the day you’d be able to style it every way and right now here is your chance. Many factors come into choosing a beard, face shape, hair color, and even what you plan on wearing. Most guys will prefer heavy stubble, while others live for sideburns. In the end, it all comes down to your preference and your texture.

Short Beard Ideas

Beards come in a wide variety of different shapes, styles, and sizes. Whilst beards do often alter now and then as the changing ‘trends, the core value of a relationship between a man and his beard often remains the same. So, today I wanted to take a look at the most popular beards you’re likely to see out there in the wild, from a touch of stubble to an amazing full beard-mane,

Beard Grooming

While on your journey to your perfect beard style you will want to keep on top of maintenance. There are various things you should be doing to make sure you stay on top of beard maintenance. Beard Oil, Wax & Balm will be ideal to help you keep your beard looking amazing. One of the 3 will help you keep your hair looking luxurious.

Different Beard Types:

Full Beard

A full beard can come in a wide variety of different shapes. The simplest description of a full beard is when you let your hair grow completely with no real sense of styling. This is just a full growth of facial hair. Long beard styles usually look good on guys who have healthy, thick, and full beard/hairdos.

Corporate Beard

Men who can naturally grow a fuller beard are good candidates to sport the corporate beard look. With this look trimming and maintenance is key. You don’t want short hair to stick around but will enjoy short sides along with a short haircut. 

The Stubble Beard

Stubble is the shadow look some of us get a day or two after shaving. This look is professional yet casual making it acceptable for any environment. However, stubble can’t be classed as a beard. It is more the growing process of a beard but does look amazing when executed properly. Usually, it looks fierce and masculine along your jawline, perfect when paired up with a slick back cut. 

The Goatee Beard

The goatee beard remains as popular as it ever has been. The more common goatee covers the lip line and resembles that of a goat. But over the years have been developed many times. Mostly it is worn and looks the best on oval face types.

The Verdi Beard

The Verdi consists of a full beard with a much more maintained mustache of which the beard wearer often twists the tash’. You definitely would have seen this look around if not on TV. It is clean and cool in its way. 

The Bandholz Beard

The bandholz beard has become one of the most chosen beards for men that love beards. If you could grow facial hair fit for competition then this is the look for you. This lumberjack-friendly look is the best way to sport your luscious long beard that you better look after. With a thick mustache & thick beard, this look will turn some heads. It usually looks the best when paired with a handlebar mustache.
