Beards can be fun, bold and exciting. While a well-groomed beard is always a classic, there’s no harm in trying new shapes and styles on your beard.
With these bolder beard styles, they can be slightly more difficult to pull off. Stubble and circle beards are a safe bet – they look sharp and can be easier to maintain. But when it comes to these quirkier beards, there are a few steps you might need to consider.
Style It Out
Finding a style that complements your new funky beard is crucial. The clothes we wear and the style of our beards go hand-in-hand. There are certain outfits that can enhance your beard and make it stand out, while others don’t do it any favours. Having a strong sense of style that matches your beard allows for a sharp look all-round.
For those with a shorter beard, button down shirts paired with a blazer or jacket can be a great style choice – it’s casual and classy at the same time.
If your bold beard has a fuller look, pairing it with a jumper can show a warm, comforting side to your personality. Chunky knit jumpers are a great choice for presenting a more approachable you, while still ensuring your masculine edge. But if you’re going for a more burly look, try a checked shirt over a plain tee.
You might be wondering how to style an even quirkier facial hair style, like a handlebar or horseshoe moustache. These moustaches add extra edge and structure to your face, so matching that with your style is important. Try some patterned button-down shirts or a statement blazer – these pieces can help keep your look mature, but with a slight edge.
Dress however you feel comfortable, but don’t be afraid to throw a few new, classy pieces in your wardrobe. If you want your beard to look fresh and smart, dress to match – your style and facial hair work together to create your look.
Confidence is Key
You know what they say – a bearded man is a more confident man. We know rocking a statement beard can feel scary, but you have to believe in yourself to really make it work.
Beards can be unique and bold, so don’t be afraid to try a new style from time to time. Finding your own beard style can represent confidence and independence. Going for a quirkier beard style will emphasise this, as it can show that you know what you want, as you’ve gone for a bolder style than many of your male peers.
Don’t be afraid to be unique and show your style in your own way. And remember, confidence is an attractive trait in a person – so make that beard work!
The Right Beard Care
Looking after your statement beard is a crucial step to pulling one off. Just like with a standard stubbly beard, you need to consider how you’re taking care of your facial hair.

Gillette Beard Oil is made using plant-based oils to ensure your beard is getting the best possible nourishment. Our signature King C. Gillette fragrance also plays a significant role.
