Beards on beaus

A beard can be used to enhance your best features. It can also disguise those areas that are less attractive. However, you need to choose the beard style that fits the shape of your face in order to look good all the time

Square face

Square-faced fellows have a strong jaw line. However in some cases, that jaw line is a little too strong, making some men want to soften their appearance just a bit. The best way to do this is to choose an all over beard that is clipped close to the face. This softens the bottom of your face, giving it a slightly more rounded look.

Round face

Many round-faced men feel that having a long, full beard will elongate their face. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Long, full beards with bushy sideburns will only make your face look rounder. When you grow your beard, make sure that it is shortest on your cheeks, but left longer around your jaw line, so you can create a squarer shape when looking head on. This will create the illusion of you having a square jaw line, rather than a rounded chin.

Long narrow face

If you have a long narrow face, then the best style for you is a beard that keeps the hair on your chin to a minimum length. The longer the beard, the longer your face will tend to look. So, keep that hair in the chin area shorter to help make your face look a little shorter as well. Long narrow faces often look good with a bit of two day grown on the lower half of their face. Stubble styling softens up that long narrow look, making your face look a bit shorter and a little bit fuller.

Short face, pointed chin

Some men have a short face with a pointed narrow chin. This gives their face a more triangular look than they would like. In this case, a full beard styling that extends a bit beyond your face can give your chin a more rounded look and make your face appear somewhat longer at the same time. However, make sure that the part of the beard that goes beyond the chin is rounded at the bottom and not pointed, or the pointed chin look will remain.

Pointed chin, longer face

Men who have long and narrower faces with a pointed chin aren’t going to benefit from a longer full beard. While the full beard may round out their chin a bit, it will make their face appear even longer. The best beard styling for the longer face with a pointed chin is a nice goatee styling to give the chin a more rounded appearance while helping to keep the face from looking narrower.

Rectangular face

Men who have a rectangular face often want to soften their jaw line while giving their face a less elongated look. A beard can do that beautifully if you choose a style such as a chin curtain or a short box beard. Keep the sides fuller and the bottom shorter since you already have strong lines.

Square face

Square-faced fellows have a strong jaw line. However in some cases, that jaw line is a little too strong, making some men want to soften their appearance just a bit. The best way to do this is to choose an all over beard that is clipped close to the face. This softens the bottom of your face, giving it a slightly more rounded look.
