With tighter shaped lines and short growth, this smart beard look is great for bringing definition to your face. This style requires plenty of attention and trimming as it grows to keep it in line –, make sure to shave under your neck to create a defined line under your chin. For a trim beard, make sure the hair stops midway up the cheek and connects fairly evenly with your moustache.
