WHAT'S THE BEST BEARD STYLE FOR EACH FACE SHAPE ?
The beard has become a true fashion accessory, which is why you should be careful not to make a “faux-pas” when picking your beard style. Your beard sculpts the bottom of your face and you should be conscious of your face shape when picking a beard style. First thing first, if you’re going for the classic “3-day beard”, good news: go ahead, it suits every face shape.
The idea here is to “break” the roundness. Do not let it grow too long to avoid bringing more volume to round cheeks. You should also let your beard spread since “naked” areas tend to accentuate the roundness. Make sure the contours of your beard are sharp and geometrical and avoid curves at all cost. You should use the beard to lengthen your face from the chin down. In this prospect, pay very close attention to your goatee and the lower part of the beard in general, and make sure you have more length on the chin and/or the whole lower part of the jaw. Trim your cheeks and layer as you go down. How about a moustache? Moustaches do tend to make faces seem rounder... So if you do decide to wear a moustache, make sure you give it a geometrical shape.
Oval faces can wear anything, particularly jawline and 3-day beards that both suit them very well. You can also go for the full beard to fill out the shallower parts of the face. And since you can pull off everything, have fun with it! A big, full beard in winter, a jawline in summer...
TRIANGLE AND OBLONG FACES
In this case, all you have to do is to balance the face with volume on the cheeks, which is very easy to do with a beard! Avoid longer beards that tend to lengthen the face and go for sideburns instead. Don’t leave too much hair in your neck and shave everything below the Adam’s apple.
