How to Choose the Best Beard Style for Your Face Shape
Choosing the beast beard style that will complement the shape of your face will make you forget about being clean shaved for quite some time. For long enough have men been suggested to keep a clean look and with our new-found liberty, we can let loose our creativity for some awesome new styles.
When you match your facial hair with your face shape you avoid asymmetry and make your facial hair look good and natural on you. Proportions matter so before you start with the styling take some factors into consideration first. Decide if you want a cleaner and short shaven beard or if you would like to have a thicker and longer one.
If you have a stronger chin on a square face shape, then your ideal beard style would include maintaining it to be fuller and thicker on the chin while cutting it short on the sides of your jaw. This will further enhance your chin shape and accentuate your strong chin even more.
Those of you with a round face can grow their beards with much lesser grooming and styling. All that is needed for this type is to keep its length longer on the underside of the head and the chin while keeping it short and tidy on the sides.
Oval and elongated face type men enjoy the most freedom when it comes to beard styles. They represent a mix of other face shapes so they have the biggest choice when it comes to various styles and sizes. Almost any kind of a beard will look good on them. So, it’s best to experiment and see which style suits and compliments them nicely. Best of all when you get bored mix it all up and change your beard shape to something completely differently from time to time.
Men with the rectangular shape of their face should keep their facial hair much thicker on the sides while keeping them short and tidy on the bottom and underneath the chin. Since their jaw line is already accentuated naturally, keeping the beard sides longer will make their face look more square and symmetrical.
For those that do not find their face shape among some of these general types, we recommend adjusting your beard style according to some of the traits from the other face shapes. Combine them until you get a perfect style that complements the overall look of your head.
Remember, it is always as easy as trimming your beard away if you are not satisfied with how it looks on you. When shaping your own, start trimming in smaller patches and make sure you don’t cut too much. This way it will be easier to correct the mistakes that might happen. As with all things, practice makes perfect and with time you will become a professional beard stylist.
