Beards and mustaches are experiencing a cultural rebirth in the west over the last decade. While it’s not for everyone, the right style for the right face shape can give a man a nudge toward a more rugged and deliberate look. Here are some beard styles for men.
Beard Styles for Men:
1| The Short Beard
For men who are proud of their face shape, it’s particularly useful as it gives the appearance of a full beard without detracting for their natural features. Though it’s generally a few steps above stubble, it’s highly modifiable.
2| The Uniform Style
This men’s facial hair style is usually just a step up in length from stubble. The uniform style is great for oval, square, and round faces as it accentuates a little edge.
Out of all the looks in this list, stubble is the easiest to cultivate. All a man needs to do is wait a few days (usually 5), and proceed upon maintenance with a simple run of a clipper. The best part? It works for all face shapes and situations.
4| The Full Goatee
It’s simply a mustache and goatee that are connected. It’s great for guys who want to conceal their jawline – especially those with square faces.
5| The Bandholz Beard or Full Beard
It holds a strong resemblance to the Garibaldi (Which I’ll talk about further down) in that a full mustache connects to a fuller beard. However while the Garibaldi is round and stops at the 7-inch mark, the Bandholz isn’t beholden to length.
6| The Beardstache
It consists of a full-length mustache as the focus while the beard itself is trimmed to stubble.
The Beardstache works best with men who have a long philtrum – the skin between the nose and the upper lip – to allow for the growth of a more robust ‘stache.
7| The Faded Beard
As the facial hair gradually fades into the skin, it produces a blending effect. These can start anywhere from halfway down the beard to the sideburn.
8| The Garibaldi
This fuller look is comprised of a larger mustache and beard with a rounded bottom. In accordance with its first wearer, it typically stops at 7 inches.
For men looking for a full beard to start with, the Garibaldi is a viable option as it looks good on all face shapes.
