Facial hair can be quite mysterious. When you grow a beard, you will likely get second looks from women and raised eyebrows from men. Women may wonder what you look like underneath all that hair. Men may take a look at the sharpness and the depth of your beard and wonder if they are capable of growing one that is equally impressive. A full beard takes a lot of work— and some luck. You need to have the right genetics to grow substantial hair on your face and you also have to take care of it as well. Here are eight beard styles that women will love and men will envy.
The Van Dyke is one of the most impressive type of beards The Van Dyke includes a mustache that is connected to a chin beard. The connection of the beard to the mustache is the distinguishing factor, not to be confused with a goatee. You have to fine-tune the Van Dyke on a daily basis to keep it looking its best.
Handlebar and Chin Puff
The handlebar mustache is one of the most labor-intensive of all types of facial hair. The chin puff, similar to a soul patch, is a small burst of hair that is located directly below the center of the lower lip. This combination is a distinguished look that is often associated with 19th century fashion. However, it’s still somewhat popular and it can be a great look with the proper maintenance.
Short Boxed Beard
This is very similar to the Van Dyke, but the key difference is that the sideburns go all the way down the face to meet up with the chin portion of the beard. The sideburns are long and relatively narrow. You must trim the side burns so they meet the chin and they don’t go across the face.
The Balbo style of beard may be the right choice for anyone who feels that they are too skinny and want to add some girth to their frame. The Balbo consists of a chin beard that goes from one side of the mouth to the other so that the hair growth resembles the letter “U.” It also has a small mustache over the top lip.
