The full beard
A full beard is one that is untamed or one that has undergone impeccable grooming. The untamed mane reveals a non-conformist attitude of a person who lives life on his own terms. The structured full beard is a man who exudes an air of intelligence and sophistication.
Five o’clock shadow
A style that not many would attribute to be an official ‘beard style’, the five o’clock shadow is a look best described as the slight regrowth that appears towards the end of the day on which you shaved your beard. However, some men don this look intentionally. This style has a complete bad-boy rep with a ‘devil may care’ attitude attached to it. Someone who is laid-back and effortless, this style conveys the nonchalant attitude of the person who attempts it.
The chinstrap is also called the ‘show-off’ beard and is usually seen on the best jawlines. It shows efficiency and hard-work and a desire to look good. It reveals traits such as accuracy and precision. A man who tries a chinstrap is confident and overtly charming.
The famous stubble
The stubble needs no introduction and the ‘out of bed’ look that gained popularity is one of the hottest trends of this generation. The stubble portrays a personality that is aware of styles and knows how to pull it off. Though a stubble looks rugged and something that does not require effort, it is probably the most worked upon styles.
The trimmed goatee
The trimmed goatee is quite old school. Someone with a goatee is struggling to decide between a groomed full beard and a clean shave. This beard style signifies someone with a traditional outlook, and someone who goes by the book.
The Chin Beard
For those who are youthful at heart, this is the beard style to go for. It involves a sharply-trimmed round beard that covers the entire jawline from sideburn to sideburn. The mustache is clean shaven to make it a neat look. This beard style gives out a boyish hip-hop vibe. We recommend it for those who want to keep it real.
The Van Dyke Style
A classical beard style demands maintenance but also rewards with a sharp and poised look. It involves a pointy mustache that is curled upwards along with a goatee beard on the chin. It is best suited for those who want to look classy and elegant while also being perceived as dedicated, as this look requires some hard work for its upkeep.
The Boxed Beard
Often confused with a full beard, the boxed beard style involves trimming a full beard along the jawline for a sharper look. It highlights your cheekbones and is recommended for men with a sculpted jawline. This style is suited for someone who is urban, metrosexual and focused.Also, do not forget to style your beard with a good beard oil or beard wax. Our recommendation? Use Cinthol’s Beard Wax and Cinthol Beard Oil.
