Beards are in! I’m declaring that for 2016 the beard is still going to be in style. I don’t see them going away anytime soon. So if you have been wanting to grow one, there’s never been a better time to do it. The problem for some guys may not be “Should I grow a beard?”, it is probably “What beard is right for me?”. It’s a good question because there are plenty of beard styles out there. It depends on your personal style, face shape, and especially your ability to grow one.
Birch Box recommends the following styles based on common face shapes…
– Square Face: Keep hair fuller on the chin, shorter on the sides.
– Round Face: Grow hair longer on the bottom, shorter on the sides.
– Oblong or Rectangular Face: Keep the sides fuller, and the bottom shorter.
– Oval Face: Oval faces are a middle ground between the other shapes, so most styles will work well.
Now here are some beard guides to help you find that perfect look.
