Beard Styles

There are many different beard styles that you can choose from. Each style has distinct features, so there’s plenty of variety. Some of the most popular types include:

  • the chin strap
  • goatee
  • mustache
  • light beard with no mustache
  • thicker beard around the chin sides
  • natural beard growth

There isn’t one right answer when choosing a beard style, so feel free to try something new! The best way to find the right one is to experiment with different looks until you find one that you’re comfortable with.

What to consider before choosing a beard style?

There are many factors to consider before choosing the right beard style:

  • First and foremost, you must decide what beard you want to grow. There are five main beard styles: goatee, full beard, partial beard, clean shave, and mustache.
  • After you decide on the style, you need to decide on the length and width of your beard. Beards can be short, medium, or long and wide or narrow.
  • Ensure you consider your natural hair texture, as some styles work best for curly and wavy. In contrast, others work better for straight and thin.

How to Trim and Shape Your Beard

If you’re looking to trim and shape your beard, here are a few tips:

  • Start by determining the length of beard that you want.
  • Trim the beard to the desired length, then clip any strays close to the face.
  • Next, it’s time to shape the beard. Use a beard trimmer to evenly trim the beard around the face, keeping in mind the contours of the face.
  • Finally, apply a beard balm or oil to help keep the beard in place and styled.

Bonus tip

It’s important to remember that facial hair is especially susceptible to dryness. To avoid this problem, use a hydrating serum before trimming your beard and apply moisturizer afterward. If you’re experiencing severe dryness, consider using a beard balm instead.

Products to Help Keep Your Beard Looking Great

Keeping your beard looking great can be a challenge. Here are some products that can help:

  • A good shampoo and conditioner. These will cleanse and condition your beard, making it look and feel better.
  • The right beard oil. Beard oils are essential for keeping your beard looking healthy and glossy. Choose one explicitly formulated for beards, as opposed to general hair oils.
  • A quality beard balm. Beard balms provide long-lasting moisturization to the skin beneath your beard, helping to keep it looking great all day long!
  • A boar bristle brush is perfect for brushing away dead skin cells and debris from the beard area. Keeping your hair follicles clean will keep them healthy and free of bacteria buildup (which can cause foul odors).

Growing and maintaining a great-looking beard requires some effort. However, it’s well worth it! Not only will you look great, but you’ll also feel more confident.
