To beard, or not to beard? That is the question. Whether you're inspired by Gandalf the Grey's chin-do or Ryan Gosling's five o'clock shadow - we've got all the essential beard advice covered.

On red carpets and off duty, the beard simply won’t be trimmed from current style guides. But achieving the look isn’t just a matter of tossing aside the razor - maintenance and grooming are required or you could cross the line between dashing and derro.

Don’t trim up to the jawline. This doesn’t slim your face — it heightens your double chin.

Treat your beard as you would the hair on your head. Yes, that means washing and conditioning.

Long beard styling tips

Your hair shade and beard won’t necessarily match. Many a light-haired man has grown out only to find latent ranga genes. It’s not all bad news — think Ewan McGregor in Star Wars or Sons of Anarchy’s Charlie Hunnam.
