Choose the Right Style:
The ultimate goal of your beard style is to add contrast and dimension to your face. Different face shapes should highlight certain facial features, and not every style looks great on every guy. Here’s how to choose the right style for your face. Make sure to keep your freshly trimmed beard in top condition and wash regularly to get rid of problems like beard dandruff.
Shave or trim with sharp, precise lines near your cheekbones. Keep your beard short on the sides and fuller on your chin to take advantage of your square jawline.
A chin patch and a moustache that forms a circle beard.
A goatee is a small beard that elongates the chin.
Slim your face with an angled shave along your cheekbones. Keeping hair full on your chin will also help.
A Van Dyke is a full goatee with detached moustache
A Balbo beard is without sideburns but with a trimmed, floating moustache
A pointed anchor beard traces the jawline and is paired with a moustache
