Grow. Get it?

So you’ve been growing out that beard for a while and you’re not really sure what to do with it. Am I right? We’ve all been there.

Well, have no fear, Bristlr is here. We’ve tracked down ten great beard styles that will never grow old! Read on and marvel at these beautiful beards.

 

1. The Basic Beard. Basic, but by no means boring! No need to go crazy with this one, just let it grow and keep it trimmed. Any length, any colour, you can rock this if you just believe you can…

 

2. The Stubby. No need to keep it too long if maintenance if an issue. Keep it stubby and just trim it back when it’s getting a bit lengthy for your liking…

4. The Goatee. You can’t beat a classic, and the goatee is certainly an iconic look. Turn heads on your travels. You’re bringing beardy back…

 

5. Tache n’ Shadow. Don’t want a full beard? No problem. There are other alternatives for your hairy face. That top lip is perfect real estate…

 

6. Tache to the Max. There’s no such thing as going overbeard when it comes to your face. Grow that tache all the way down to your feet if you want. You do you…

 

7. Bald & Beardy. Swap the hair on your head for the hair on your chin. Really pull focus to that carefully sculpted beard by eliminating any competition your hair up there might create…

 

8. Beard Braids. Keep your bushy bits under control with a braid or two! No need to loose any length here. If anything the lengthier, the better…

9. Beady Beardy. More of a decoration than a style, but if you’ve got a creative streak why not show it off with some beads in that beard? Show off a style all your own…

 

10. Your Beard Your Rules. Who said you needed to conform to a style anyway? It’s your beard and you can grow it out and maintain however you like. We support you…

Guest Post – 5 Rules for Dating With a Beard

Guest Blog 5 Rules For Dating With a Beard

Having a beard can make you look a lot more masculine. A beard also puts you into a dating niche that can work in your favour. There are many misconceptions surrounding men’s facial hair and women’s desires, but the bottom line is that beards can be sexy and a great asset to your personal style.

When you are dating, use these 5 rules to make sure your beard works for you.

Women Love Beards

There is a lot of mixed information when it comes to women’s beard preferences, but almost half of women like kissing men with beards. However less than 30% of men grow beards, so straight away by growing a beard the odds are on your side.

Confidence is really important when it comes to dating, and you need to see your beard as a big part of who you are. Do that and all the other rules are going to be a lot easier to follow.

Rule #1: Wear your beard with pride and confidence.

Keep It Together

Growing a beard is about a lot more than just letting your facial hair grow out. There used to be a whole industry dedicated to male facial hair in days gone by, and although it’s taken it’s time that industry is making a comeback.

If you want to have a strokeable beard, you need to put in the work. You’ll be needing a beard comb, some good clippers for maintenance among other things, and a daily beardcare ritual to top it off.

On top of styling and maintenance you’ll want to be keeping an eye out for stray bits of food – it happens, we all know it. No one wants to kiss a beard with food stuck in it!

Rule #2: Daily beard maintenance is a must!

Plan Your Beard Out

Much in the same way a person thinks about a hairstyle as a part of their fashion, a bearded man must look at his facial hair as a part of his overall style.

Whilst it might sound fun and easy to just grow out a great big bushy beard, with a huge greased up handlebar mustache, you might find that some people would prefer to be seen with someone well groomed. Your beard needs to fit with your partner’s style, as much as your own.

A great way to approach this is to make sure that your beard is a good fit for your face. There are a lot of great options for beard styles, and you will have no problem finding one that fits you perfectly. You might have to do a bit of experimenting with styles to start off, depending on how your beard grows.

It’s important to have a purpose, don’t just let a beard happen. Grow it with intention, groom it, style it, shape it.

Struggling to come up with a style of your own? Most high-street barbers will cater to beards these days, so why not ask their opinion?

Rule #3: Have a vision for your beard and make it happen. 

Maintenance!

Planning to keep that beard for a while? You’ll have to keep it in good shape! Which means buying quality shampooing and conditioning products.

The way you treat your facial hair is going to make a huge difference in how it feels to the touch and one of the biggest things that people love about beards is running their fingers through them.

If you don’t take care of your beard hair, it isn’t going to look right, nor will it feel great in your girlfriend’s hands.

Rule #4: Buy and use great hair care products on your beard.

Asset v. Liability

Your beard can be a big turn-on or a big turn-off, depending on how well you take care of it. So you have to make sure your beard is an asset that works for you, and not a liability.

If you’ve followed rules 1-4, then you’re beard’s going to be in a great place. But you’ve got to keep up that personal discipline, to keep that beard game strong.

Don’t be put off by the occasional off comment from your girlfriend either, no beard is going to be loved by a woman in the same way you love it.

Don’t be too put off by the occasional but of constructive criticism on your beard either, especially not from your partner (they’re going to be seeing it most regularly after all!). No one’s going to love your beard the way you do, so an outside opinion can sometimes help.

Rule #5: Love your beard and make it an asset that works for you.
