Are you one of the lucky few who grows a naturally blonde or reddish blonde beard? Then kudos to you – you’re one of the few who get the chance to rock the golden goatee!
Now, we know what some people say, that blonde beards aren’t as sophisticated as dark brown or black ones. We hear you – and wholeheartedly disagree! Blonde beards not only are rarer, and thus a naturally showstopper look, but also extremely aesthetic.
Think about it this way, blonde beards add a golden, platinum or copper touch to your style, without you even having to splurge on jewellery. Now, that’s one nifty advantage.

So, no matter if your beard is golden, blonde, ginger blond or platinum – there’s a beard style out there for you, and we’re going to help you find it.
Why is My Beard Blonde?
First things first, you might be wondering: ‘why is my beard blonde’? Perhaps you have dark hair on your head but grow ginger blonde facial hair. Or maybe you used to be blonde as a child but lost the fair locks on your head but still grow the blond hair on your face.
There are many factors as to why you grow a blonde beard, but the most common explanation is down to those hidden genes expressing themselves in weird and wonderful ways!
In fact, having a different colour of hair to your beard is quite common and it’s all down to the levels of pigmentation and melanin in your hair follicles. All follicles contain a mix of black or brown pigments, called eumelanin, and red and yellow pigments, called pheomelanin.
If genetically, you produce more pheomelanin, then chances are either your scalp hair or facial hair will look blonde or reddish blonde.
It’s perfectly possible to have the blonde hair black beard combo too, or the blonde hair ginger beard look. If that’s the case, there are loads of beard styles to choose from that exalt your two-tone look. But if the mismatched colours bother you, you can always use blonde beard dye to match the two.

Whether you grow naturally blonde beard tresses, are looking how to grow a blonde beard, or are thinking of hitting the blond beard dye – there’s a style out there to match your golden or platinum-coloured aspirations!
Here’s our list of top beard styles to make your blonde wishes come true:
The Blonde Beard 5 O’Clock Shadow Stubble

Sporting the blonde hair with black beard look? A slightly darker stubble will add contrast and definition to your style without making the tonal difference too obvious.
