The Best Beard Styles
The best beard style for you is going to come down to evaluating a lot of different variables. Including your genetics, your face shape, your lifestyle, and your climate. Let's take a look at each one.
Your Genetics - This one is the easiest to figure out, because you don't have much of a choice in the matter. If you are only able to grow a certain facial hair style, well then that is the one you go with! You want your beard style to play to your strengths. One of the key determining factors of if you can go for a longer beard would be the neckline and underbeard. If you have a high neckline and weak underbeard, then your beard will become transparent and wispy as you grow longer. You would be better going for a shorter style that suits your genetics. If you have a patchy and thin beard, but have a strong mustache... look for a Van Dyke or Beardstache style! Rock what you got!
Your Face Shape - Certain face shapes lend themselves to different beard styles beard than others. It is all about balance! If you have a long and narrow face, you would want a beard that is wider and has more volume. If you have a round face, you will want to go with a more angler beard, such as what is knows an the Kratos or God of War beard.
Your Lifestyle - The life you live will play a big part in deciding what the best beard style is for you. If you work in an office, from home or your are retired and do not lead a very active lifestyle... the options are unlimited for you! However, if you do live that active lifestyle that gets your dirty or sweaty, you may want to consider that factor when finding what style is best for you. If you work with power tools or dangerous equipment, a longer beard can be a hazard. If you are a swimmer, a longer beard can cause drag and slow you down. Consider what you do on a daily basis and think of the challenges some beard styles can present.
Your Climate - Beard styles tend to be regional and there is a good reason for that. The climate can present challenges for some beard styles. The most challenging factor for a climate... humidity! It can be next to impossible to manage a long beard style in the tropics where it is hot, humid, and surrounded by salt water. A shorter beard style works much better in that climate. However, if you are in the mountains or in the cold, a longer beard style comes in handy with some built in warmth. Consider where you live when picking your best beard style.
