The clean shaven look works for some people, but other guys like a little facial hair to complete their look. Plenty of you might shy away from growing facial hair as you think it looks wild and scruffy. But, when styled correctly, it can make you look a lot better and more mature too.
Having said that, here are the best beard styles you need to try as soon as possible:
Normally, you associated stubble with laziness. You haven’t shaved for a few days, and you’ve got some rough stubble growing. If you’re not careful, this can make you look like a bit of a bum. But, smart stubble has an entirely different look. It makes you appear very manly and really enhances your face. The key is to ensure you shape your stubble and trim your beard evenly all over. You want there to be nice sharp lines, so it’s clear you’ve made an effort and haven’t just woken up without bothering to shave.
A really popular look if you don’t want a full-on beard but need some hair on your face. It gives you an almost rugged handsomeness.
Goatees are one of the simplest beard styles out there and will be great for anyone that doesn’t want a full beard. With this style, you shave the majority of your beard off and leave a small section on your chin. There’s a fair bit of discussion surrounding how to trim a goatee, with many arguing that you need to leave hair on the bottom of your chin for it to be considered an actual goatee. If you shave everything off and leave one thin strip then that’s not a goatee, it’s a different style.
With this look, you can prevent yourself from looking baby faced, and you’ll also bring out your chin more. It’ll give you one of those classic Disney prince chins, the ones that make you look strong – women love it.
Chinstrap beards are great for highlighting your jawline and go really well with a fresh trim. The idea is simple, you shave your neck, cheeks, and mustache area, leaving a strap of hair that follows your jaw. The thickness of this beard is entirely up to you. I personally think it looks best with a short hair cut.
The chinstrap brings out your jaw and heightens the shape of your face. It’s one of the cleanest ways you can wear your beard.
Finally, we have one of the most popular beard styles at the moment; the Balbo. This is where you grow out your beard and then shave everything off apart from your mustache and the area by your chin. It’s a bit like a mustache/goatee combo, but more stylish than both on their own.
This is a popular look in Hollywood, so it will give you that handsome movie star look!
If you’re looking for a new way to style your beard without it looking messy, try out one of these ideas. Play around with each style until you find the one that suits you best.
