Shadow Beard

If you have a good, strong chin and you can grow facial hair quite quickly – this beard style is ideal for you. The tricky part is to show that you are too manly to even get a shave, yet keep the beard tidy. Give it the required shape and make sure it doesn’t look messy. A good quality trimmer and daily trims just below the jaw will go a long way, ensuring your jaw is outlined and your beard looks right. If you want to go for a longer beard – then the stubble look beard is the choice. This style also requires good grooming habits and is suitable for men with fair hair and men with light facial hair. To achieve this look you will need not to shave for one to three days, then give it a daily trim for a shadow beard and light trim every two or three days for a stubble look.

Full Beard

Probably the most popular beard style in the world, which requires very little maintenance. To keep it looking neat and tidy use a trimmer set at around four to six millimeters. If you want to achieve a thicker, more masculine appearance – let the beard grow even longer. One of the best things about the full beard is that it completely covers the upper lip, cheeks, chin and even the neck – so it works for any facial structure. Yet the downside is, it takes a lot of time and patience, especially if your hair tends to grow slowly. Regular trims and occasional conditioning will make your beard look tidy and presentable.


Short Boxed Beard

The best choice for those who do not want to go the full beard route. The first thing you will need to obtain this look is patience – it is carefully sculpted and requires a lot of maintenance. This option is good for men who do not have a prominent chin and want to achieve a more robust look. This style will also look great on businessmen, who want to look stylish yet professional. Short boxed beards look great on oval or heart-shaped faces.
