BEARD STYLES & GROOMING GUIDE
How To Find the Best Beard Style for Your Face Shape
The right beard style can enhance a guy’s facial features
Sadly, I see a lot of men these days growing beards in the wrong way, for instance, if you are sporting an afro hair, you shouldn’t keep big beards. This should be the basic rule and for those of you who don’t want to believe the rest of the things I write here, please believe this one.
Unless of course, you are trying to prove a point that the SUN is round in shape, which we already know, there is no need to sport an afro beard style and an afro hairstyle together.
So in summary, if you are already making this mistake, go shave off your hair or reduce it. If you CANNOT reduce the entire hair, then trim off the sides of the hair for a mid-skin fade and tapered sides.
Another Important Tip you should know before we delve into the article proper…
Before you grow a beard, it is best to find the right beard style for your face. There are some general rules on how to choose this and we will look at each face shape and the appropriate beard to go with it shortly, but first, you have to believe without a single doubt that growing beard is a noble aspiration which should be pursued by any Real Man.
HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT BEARD STYLE THAT FITS YOUR FACE
First, examine your facial structure and identify the category you fall into; then, find a good barber to start shaping and styling your beards in the perfect way.
1. The Oval Face
Men with this shape are the luckiest, as a variety of facial hair styles will complement this shape. The oval face shape is considered the ideal shape and requires no special shaping to balance facial features. Do whatever you like and you’ll look great.

2. The Round Face
Individuals with round faces should try facial hair styles that have the effect of making faces appear masculine and oval-shaped. When shaping the beard for a round face, go a bit longer at the chin to add length and make the face appear less round. Avoid bushy sideburns and keep the sides of the beard short. In lieu of a full beard, a goatee is often a good option for a round face
3. The Square Face
Men with square faces should opt for styles that make their faces appear less box-like and more slender.
Similar to shaping a beard for a round face, the beard for a square face should be shorter at the sides and longer at the chin to add length to the face. A goatee is also a good option for men with square faces.
4. The Long Face
Exactly opposite of the round face, the long face requires a beard which is fuller at the sides and shorter at the chin. The goal here is to add width to the sides and make the face appear less long. Make sure to avoid abrupt changes in length so the shaping is not obvious.

5. The Small Face
Small faces require small facial hair. Larger, fuller styles will make the face get lost and appear out of proportion. Also follow the rules above for the appropriate face shape.
6. The Large Face
Since the face is large, any small facial hair or beard will appear out of proportion and make the face appear bigger. Keep the beard fuller and the mustache larger. Also, follow the rules above for the appropriate face shape.
Alright Gentlemen, I sincerely hope I’ve been able to inspire a lot of you today to start growing your beards and most importantly choosing a beard style that is suitable for your face shape.
One thing I must leave you with is this: Growing a beard takes patience, and you must resist the urge to shave it off when the temptation comes knocking. Cos it surely will.
