A Guide To Facial Hair Styles
Looking for a new facial hair style? It's an easy way to change up your look without much commitment. If you aren't sure what look is right for you, have a peek at our facial hair guide, and give your face a whole new style!
The Circle Beard
As modelled here by our good friend Brad Pitt, the circle beard is easy to maintain and is a fairly common style of facial hair.
5 O'Clock Shadow
An ultra low maintenance style that gives off a casual vibe that's just right. You don't have to be Bradley Cooper to pull this off.
Talk about an easy to maintain style! Step one: just don't shave. Step two: continue to not shave. Joaquin manages to pull of basically any facial hair style, no matter how crazy it makes him look.
The Chin Strap
I'm not sure if you remember American Idol alum Chris Daughtry, but you likely remember his chin strap beard. This style requires a lot of precision with not a whole lot of pay off. Probably a look we should all avoid.
The Soul Patch
Howie Mandel is pretty well known for his soul patch. Simply shave everything except for a small patch under the chin.
Bill Murray can essentially do no wrong, and here we see him rocking some expertly groomed mutton chops.
The Pencil Moustache
This is definitely a difficult look to pull off, unless you're super quirky like John Waters. Or unless you're simply Orlando Bloom. Make sure you avoid looking like a seventh grader.
The Perfectly Groomed Beard
We've got to hand it to Chris Pine: he has basically perfected this whole beard thing. If you want this look, grow out your beard without letting it look scraggly, and then perform regular maintenance.
The Clean Shave
If you usually rock some sort of facial hair style and are looking for a change, try opting for a clean shave! I'm pretty confident Tom Cruise never has a beard, and the world is certainly better for it. If you don't like it, no worries. Facial hair grows back.
