Beards are back in style and have been a popular trend for men in recent years. While facial hair isn’t for everyone, the best beard styles have really changed over the years.
There are a lot of new trendy styles, many men are now combining short hair (fades and undercuts) and long hair (man buns and top knots) with short, medium and long beard styles.
It is important to note that men with beards often take immense care of their facial hair and the maintenance can be time-consuming but worth it…. Here are some guidelines:-
Step One in determining what style of facial hair is best for you, is taking a long look in the mirror. Look closely at your face to evaluate its shape. How do your cheekbones, jawline, and chin all work together? you shouldn’t just grow any facial hair style on your face…..because faces are different – yours might be more oval-shaped while the guy sitting at the next table may have an elongated face – and different facial hairstyles work best with certain faces.
Experts suggest trying to make your face look as oval as possible, because it’s not only the most aesthetically-pleasing shape but will prevent you from over-exaggerating a narrow face or widening a shorter one.
Oval is a good shape to have because most beard styles will look good on you. If you prefer a shorter beard style, keep it even on the sides and bottom, and grow a longer beard only if you feel compelled, to break out of the traditional workplace mold.
If you truly want a beard that looks well-maintained, then you need to add beard oil to your facial toolbox. Beard oil mimics the natural oils produced by your skin and will make your beard, more healthier and more manageable.
As we delve deeper into the world of facial hair styles, it becomes clear that options for finding a style that fits you are limited only by your imagination.
