With great Beard comes great responsibility! Cheap, versatile and adaptable, facial hair can change the shape of a man’s face and completely alter how he looks. New trendy beard styles.
Before you grab your razor and trimmers and get cutting, ask yourself what image you want to portray first. Pick one that complements your best features and gives you that irresistible style that women and men will not be able to resist. Make sure your haircut directs attention to the beard.
The full beard used to be the most popular beard style for black men, and for good reason. It sure is one of those things that’s decidedly harder than it looks.
The fuller the beard, the more maintenance it requires and the more problems you’re likely to encounter. This kind of style fits slim, angular jaws or thick and well-built men.

This is another popular style, and refers to any style featuring hair above the lip and on the chin only, sometimes connected to create a frame for the mouth.
If the edges are trimmed thin or allowed to go thicker; the goatee beard commands attention especially when it is allowed to reach its full potential.
Probably the simplest of all beard types for the black man. It gives them that certain style that has an imperial feel to it.
Another variation of the goatee, the soul patch is simply a strip of facial hair that extends down from the lower lip to the chin and can be trimmed just about any width. This is a look that will certainly command your fair share of attention.
A stubble beard does take some skill and dedication to master, but the benefits far outweigh all the efforts. Perfect for guys with baby faces, a sprinkling of stubble instantly adds maturity and a sense of ruggedness
This classic look is irresistible to anyone within arm’s length, and even a 1/2 inch of growth will suffice.

Given its simplicity and practicality, it’s small wonder that the flat cap has almost global appeal. But then, while Peaky Blinders may have energised interest in it and its six or eight-panelled cousin the ‘baker boy’ style, the flat cap has been around since the 14th century.
An Act of Parliament in the UK in 1571 made it mandatory to wear a woollen cloth cap on Sundays and public holidays – more as a boost to sheep farming than weekend style. But today, it’s all about aesthetics and what it can add to your look.
There are plenty of pitfalls of course, but these can be easily avoided if you know what you’re doing. The whole ‘faux-gentleman’ thing that embraced the flat cap (as well as the beard and exaggerated moustache) has come and gone, but it is possible to wear one and look both contemporary and cool.
There is, in fact, a genius inherent to this affordable and durable design: less formal than more structured hats – and so less off-putting for men who can’t, as it were, get their heads around hats – its design is still a deceptively clever one.
Cut deeper at the back, it has more purchase than it looks like it does – useful especially when lifting eyes to the sky while shooting, for example; the brim is short but still enough to shade eyes; and the whole thing is foldable, easily stowed inside a pocket.

These are all notions nicked by spin-offs such as the driving cap, cycling cap and even the baseball cap. Perhaps the most appealing thing about the flat cap right now though is that it’s not a baseball cap. Ever understated, you’d never get a flat cap sporting some brash logo.
Like its American equivalent, the baseball cap, the flat cap has an everyman quality to it, as fitting atop a pigeon-fancying Yorkshireman as it is an estate-touring toff, whether working the land or owning it. It found a place in skinhead culture, but also hip-hop and has been favoured by everyone from Del Boy to Samuel L. Jackson.
Likewise, while it’s not a hat for all seasons – linen versions may work for summer, but the flat cap is essentially a cold-weather style – it is a hat for almost all occasions. Unlike the baseball cap, the flat cap is as at home with tailoring as with jeans and T-shirt, flattering most faces into the bargain.
Opting for one in a neutral colour such as navy or dark grey will offer up the most versatility. Introduce one as part of a monochrome look consisting of black tailored trousers, a grey T-shirt and a navy bomber jacket, and it’ll serve you well in a casual office environment as well as the weekend.

Unarguably one of the UK’s most esteemed hatters – its namesake’s story in hat-making can be traced back to the 1750s, and the company is said to have invented the bowler hat – this is the place to go should you ever need a hot weather flat cap. They have styles in cashmere and Escorial wool, but also linen.
Yes, there really is an official ‘Peaky Blinders’ flat cap, not least because the TV show’s creator, Steven Knight, set up a company to make them and other clothing befitting a Brummie hoodlum at the turn of the last century. The English-made tweed style names? Arthur, Thomas and Shelby, of course.
One of the all-time great American hatmakers, it was Bailey – once better known as Bailey of Hollywood – that made hats for all the big stars of the golden era of cinema, Gary Cooper and Cary Grant among them. Grant’s best hat moment? In None But the Lonely Heart, wearing a flat cap throughout. Bailey’s also makes them in showerproof cotton.
Better known for its bucket hats – LL Cool J might spring to mind – Kangol is the definitive headwear of US hip-hop, despite being a British brand. It adopted its marsupial logo only in 1983 to deal with American’s persistently and puzzlingly asking for ‘the Kangaroo hat’. Its cloche-like 504 flat cap is a classic.
Based on Portsea Island near Portsmouth, where a naval cap might be more in order, hatmaker Gamble & Gunn have built a deserved reputation for the bolder choice of materials from which it makes its caps, ochre Donegal tweed, suede and lux merino wool among them.
Established in Scotland in 1748 by one Miller Christy – his company would later win one of the first contracts to supply hats to the newly formed Metropolitan Police, while Queen Victoria’s consort Albert favoured its top hats – Christys’ offers flat caps in trad tweed but also hardwearing melton and moleskin.
It was a Borsalino that Warren Beatty wore in Bonnie and Clyde, Humphrey Bogart in Casablanca and Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones – a tall crowned felt fedora that in time would take the name of its maker. But who’s to say the Italian hatter can’t turn its hand to caps? Its version, in fact, has an innovative multi-panelled back section for a closer fit.

Kulaperry started the “Kulaperry Outlook” brand because he was sad and worried that the African continent didn’t really have any popular clothing brand available for its people. He says, “It always hurts seeing my people wear second hand clothes”. He says that prior to him starting this brand many wrote him off since clothing brands in Ghana in the past usually came up with a few T-Shirts, which lasts a few months and vanish into the thin air. Kulaperry boldly says, “Fear No Man is here to stay”, he continues, “Fear No Man is for me, you and the whole of Ghana and Africa. Fear No Man is bigger than Kulaperry”. The confidence alone of this young entrepreneur is one to admire.
The Kulaperry Brand has already made itself a brand name to reckon with in the Urban African fashion industry. Despite being a young company, with about five years under its belt, the milestones, which the brand has achieved, can only be envied. The company’s apparel includes T-Shirts, Shirts, Caps and Jackets amongst others. The brands presence in 29 different countries is unprecedented, and this is testament to the hard work that has gone into planning, setting up and marketing this amazing brand.
The President of Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has inducted 378 newly qualified medical doctors and dentists into the country’s healthcare delivery system.
Speaking at the induction ceremony on Friday, 13th September, 2019, at the Accra International Conference Centre, President Akufo-Addo also revealed that the first batch of 48 ambulances, out of the 300 procured in fulfilment of the 1-Constituency-1-Ambulance pledge, has arrived in the country, with the second batch due in Ghana by the first week of October.
At the ceremony, which was also held to honour Dr. Evans-Anfom, a medical doctor who served as the second Vice Chancellor of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, President Akufo-Addo noted that the doctor-dentist-population ratio in the country remains very unsatisfactory after 62 years of nationhood.
“We currently do not have the right numbers of doctors, dentists and healthcare professionals, with the right mix of skills and expertise, in our regions, districts and deprived communities, especially for the newly created regions and districts,” he said.
The President encouraged the newly inducted practitioners “to follow the exemplary example of Dr. Evans-Anfom, and accept postings to accredited Regional and District hospitals, where your services are needed most, particularly during your second year of housemanship.”
He noted that the country would only keep the doctors it trains when agriculture and industry are thriving, when we have better roads, better communications, better schools, better housing, reliable and cheaper power supply, and better drainage.
“On my part, I am determined to work to help ensure that these improvements we all want in our lives become reality. Until that is done, we have to equip those currently in training and our fresh doctors to do a little more out of the ordinary to bring relief to the present situation,” he assured.
Government, according President Akufo-Addo, is committed to improving access to essential and quality health services through the provision of the necessary health infrastructure, equipment and logistics, including the deployment of appropriate technology as part of the drive to attaining Universal Health Coverage (UHC).
He added that the National Health Insurance Scheme, implemented by the government of President Kufuor, which was left in ruins by successive NDC governments has been revived again by another NPP-led Government.
“We have cleared the GH¢1.2 billion arrears we inherited, and brought the operations of the NHIS back to life. The claims of service providers have been settled as of end January this year. By the end of September, their claims, as of March ending, would have been settled, and, by the end of the year, claims up to August ending, will also have been settled,” the President said.
He reiterated the determination of Government to making the scheme current in its obligations to service providers, and prevent the accrual of arrears, as was, unfortunately, been the case in the not so distant past.
In ensuring that the Ghanaian people receive the high standards of professionalism and conduct from healthcare professionals, President Akufo-Addo revealed that Government, through the Ministry of Health, has established the Quality Management Unit at the Ministry of Health to ensure that Ghanaians receive the best of healthcare services, irrespective of their geographical location.

In addition to launching Ghana’s Antimicrobial Resistance Policy and Action Plan, the President added that Government is engaging the Ghana Medical Association (GMA) to take another look at its codified conditions of service, which are overdue for review.
“Special attention would be paid to the rural incentives package to encourage professionals to accept postings to rural and underserved communities. We will continue to engage with stakeholders on how to care better for our health professionals, and how, collectively, we can make our healthcare system more responsive to the needs of our people,” he assured.
To the newly inducted doctors and dentists, President Akufo-Addo urged them to be guided by Hippocratic Oath, and be active citizens and bring doctors’ perspectives to public issues.
“I look forward to you not being narrow in outlook, but developing and maintaining a healthy interest in music, the arts, literature, the environment, sports, public life, and, yes, I want each one of you to be a renaissance man or woman,” he added.
