A beard is not just a collection of hair on the lower region of the face, it is a statement of who you are.
Everything thing we say, wear, do is a reflection of what we think about ourselves on the inside. If you really don’t care, fine, walk out of the house looking like this.
Just don’t expect a fortune 500 company to come knocking at your door begging you to come save their company.
Styling your beard is an artform that takes time and creativity. Even the “I don’t care look” requires just a little effort to achieve the opposite and desired “cool” affect.
Here are a few guidelines for styling your beard for the proper occasion
Before you can begin designing the perfect beard style, you must first come to a deeper understanding of your own personal style.
Are you athletic? Are you self proclaimed hipster? the hip-hop M.C. who will save a genere? The burley woodsmen?
Authencity is when your style merges with your most core self, resulting in a look that is dyanmic and most comfortable for you.
You can spot a person who is uncomfortable in their skin from a mile away. Signs like these manifest themselves in ways such as: insecurity, a constant need to compare to others, lack of gratitude, and over exaggeration.
Consider these core accessories when determining how to style your beard
We were not kidding when we said know youself. Why is it important to know what shape your head is?
Because this information is key for not just beard styles, but also for hats, glasses, accessories this information becomes key in determining will and will not work for styling that mug of yours.
Ask a friend to objectively assess the shape of your head, to give you a baseline of styles to try out.
If you have an oval shaped head, long lines accenuate the face. Try styling beards in the pointed fashion. Top hats are also great for bringing this beard look together.
If you are rocking the round dome, try the bushy look to support the round cheeks that will have the women jumping to run their hands through your beard.
Glasses are a great accessory to pull this look together. But make sure you grab the right frames to fit your face.
