If baseball season hasn’t convinced you to grow a beard, maybe these pictures of cool beard styles will. Other than the fade, facial hair is the most popular men’s trend of the year. Just like fade haircuts, there is an almost infinite variety to how beards can be worn. Facial hair can be short and groomed or long and wild. Even better are full beards groomed into a clean cut shape. For something extra, grow the mustache long or wax it into a handlebar.
As for hairstyles that work with beards, anything goes. A beard is a an excellent option for guys with shaved heads but also work with long hair and everything in between. Slicked back hair is one popular cut that goes with a hipster look. An undercut or fade at the sides or even just the temples can create a seamless and clean cut transition to facial hair of any length.
If you’re not comfortable trimming and grooming your beard, visit a barber or stylist for a fresh cut and beard trim. Just make sure to find someone that is experienced with facial hair. If you’re in Austin, check out Kirby the Barber for “the hand crafted beard specialist and sculptor.”
Now on to the pictures of beard styles, in order from short to long.
