How To Pick The Best Beard Style For You

How do you pick the best beard style for you? Face shape, beard growth, occupation, personal style – there’s a lot to consider.

How do you pick the best beard style for you? I believe it should be less about finding the perfect fit for your face shape and more about finding what you feel comfortable in. If everyone with a round shaped face had a goatee, the world of beards would be a very boring place.

Let your style out

Style should be less about rules and more about expression. Allow yourself the freedom to experiment with facial hair lengths, shapes and textures to find find something that truly defines who you are.
