Beards are back and bigger than ever. You can spot different beard styles and trends on the runways and red carpets today, and that should tell you that beards are now something to consider.
1. The chin strip
If you are looking for an easy style, look no further. This one features a vertical line of hair across the chin. Maintenance is all about ensuring the strip is clean and free of any stray hairs.
2. The Bandholz Beard
If you have always wanted to rid yourself of any corporate stigma in the workplace, then this beard style should fit you. The mustache is fully grown and connects to a fuller beard. The uniqueness of this style is that it stops at the 7-inch mark. The entire look is rounded, which makes it the best style for men with a round face.
Be on top of this style to trim around the edges and maintain a clean look. Ensure you are also on top of hygiene and moisturizing.
3. The Beardstache
The beardstache is a blend of stubble and a full mustache. The beauty of this beard style is that it can befit any face type. However, it is better for men with a long philtrum, which is the distance between the nose and the upper lip. This way, you can grow it to a full mustache as you keep the stubble in check. You need to put in some work to keep the different lengths in check.
4. The Balbo beard
This beard style is one without sideburns but only some hair on the chin, and a trimmed, floating mustache. It is easy to maintain as long as you keep the mustache in check and keep trimming the hair on your chin to maintain the length.
5. The Faded Beard
The faded beard is a timeless style that men are still rocking today. Ideally, the facial hair is trimmed to fade gradually into the skin, creating a perfect blend. Depending on your preference, you can choose where your fade begins, which should be anywhere from halfway down the beard to the sideburn, since you are the one in control of your Wahl peanut trimmer. It is, however, difficult to maintain because it demands a regular trim to keep the fade in precision.
6. The Full Goatee
The goatee is a beard style famously spotted on Leonardo DiCaprio. It is perfect for guys with a square face type. Ideally, it is a connection of a mustache and goatee. It is best in covering up the jawline.
The idea is to maintain a circle beard. Therefore, maintenance is so much about keeping the circle crisp and well defined.
7. The Van Dyke
This style features a full goatee with a detached mustache. It varies in length, which means you need to be keen with trimming for maintenance.
8. The stubble
Whether you like it or not the stubble is an all-time classic beard style that is still trending. It suits most face types and has low maintenance. The best bit is that the style instantly adds maturity and a sense of ruggedness to men wearing it. All you need is to let your beard grow by not shaving for a couple of days.
To maintain, keep a standard length, and always exfoliate to prevent ingrown hairs.
9. Full Beard
A full beard is exactly as its name. Let all your beard grow. It can be rocked by any face type, as long as you know how to tweak it to accentuate your best features. All you need to maintain it is to keep the length in check and watch out for hygiene and grooming. At the least of things, keep it tangle free.
10. The Chevron
If you are not all about a beard, try this mustache that covers your entire top lip. It has low maintenance because you only need to clean up the rest of your facial hair and leave on the mustache.
