In case you’ve been hiding under a rock Beards are IN. And they’re getting better than ever before as guys start to experiment with finding the right beard style to match your face shape. Beard shape ideas.
This year we saw list down the most popular beard styles that most modern men is sporting, check them out below – you might get some inspiration for your next facial hair style.
1. Full beard.
Some think it’s rugged, some think it’s hipster, some just think we’re back in the 1800s. But the long beard looks terrific when contrasted with a slick short haircut (my favorite is with a bit of a quiff at the front). They may look kind of unkempt, but any beard takes some maintenance to look its best.
Typically you will still need to shave your neck, sculpt the beard’s shape and trim your moustache if you want to carry this look well.
And don’t forget, facial hair is hair still, not to mention that there is skin underneath it so you still need to take care of it. You don't want to develop skin allergies and suffer from skin breakouts that will prevent you from growing a healthy facial hair.
As a rule of thumb, the first thing you need to do is to clean your facial hair with some quality beard wash. This product does not only cleanse, it also hydrates and moisturizes your facial hair.
2. Designer stubble.
Stubble is always in style one way or another. Guys love it because of it's casual yet manly nature (I don’t work hard on my appearance to look this good), and girls love it because it gives guys a rebellious, bad boy touch to their look.

There is a fine line though which, that when crossed, means you’ve gone from trendy man to street bum.
As with any look, this style needs proper care and maintenance as well. Make sure you trim and groom your stubble regularly, or you’ll start to see people avoiding sitting next to you on the train.
3. The Circle Beard
The circle beard gets its name from its shape. It combines a moustache and a rounded goatee to create its distinct shape. This beards are a great way to conceal a soft jaw or rounded face.
It’s also a good option if you suffer from acne and want to keep your skin problems on the down low.
This style also needs proper maintenance for a tidy look but can be more easily maintained. You will notice that your hair can be a bit unruly for the first few days/weeks, this means that the facial hair needs some TLC, use a beard balm to keep it hydrated and moisturized. To keep it looking sleek during the day you can use mustache wax.
4. Short and rugged.
This one’s a Hollywood favourite as well as on the streets probably because it combines the sophistication of a short beard with a bit of that ‘don’t care’ rebellious attitude.
This beard style is light weight, though some guys can still get irritated skin underneath, so it’s important to keep it clean and conditioned well.
Beard Oil is a favourite of ours, as it moisturises both the hair and the skin underneath, without being greasy.
There you have it. These are the beards that dominated screen and street this year. Which was your favourite?
