There are beards and then there are beards. Chris John Millington has one of those beards. The Scottish model and blogger was scouted on the streets of London by Urban Outfitters before taking the beard world by storm. If you can grow a thick, bushy beard like this, check out how well-groomed a long beard can be. If not, his hairstyles are also worth emulating.
For a long beard, this is as well-groomed as it gets. The length of the beard is neatly and symmetrically trimmed, the cheeks are clean of stray hairs, and just look at that mustache. The ‘stache is grown long and coiffed into the ‘English moustache’ style. Hair will need some mustache wax to get the look.
Here’s how to grow a full beard. First, not everyone can grow a thick, bushy beard like this. You can read everything Google has about “how to grow a thicker beard fast” but any promises are lies. Like the hair on your head, the speed and quantity of growth is determined mostly by genetics and partially by testosterone levels.
That being said, give your beard a chance. It takes 6 weeks for most guys to achieve this length. Facial hair may start out patchy (and hopefully then fill in) so start on vacation, camping trip, or any time you have away from prying eyes. Check out these beard tips for products that clean and groom your beard as well as eliminate that pesky itch.
If you can’t grow this full beard, get the hair! There’s the undercut plus combover up above and a longer, messier style here. Use a matte styling product like Baxter of California Clay Pomade or Lock Stock and Barrel Pucka Grooming Creme. These longer styles are the next big thing so start growing hair now.
