It is a right of passage. Growing and experimenting with facial hair is something every man will do in his lifetime- whether it’s only once or several times. While some are content to leave their skin bare and smooth, others prefer to show off their manly growth. Beards and mustaches take on endless forms. How you grow yours can speak volumes about you. It doesn’t matter if it’s long and shaggy or short and trim.
Now, there are a few things you should now about your facial hair choices. Typically, there are 8 face shapes for men. Determining your face shape will help you pick the beard style that brings out your best, manliest features. Attract the right attention with the right look. Now, for those of you who don’t care, go ahead and let it grow!
Once you know your face shape, you can determine what style you want, the length, shape and amount of area you want to cover. Remember, what you pick will say a lot about you – whether you want it to or not. If you work in an office, with clients or attend meetings, be sure to keep yourself well coiffed. Even rugged looks can be pulled off in a professional manner.
Beards are statements all on their own. Short (think 5 o’clock shadow) beards can be rugged yet trim and put together. Longer beards too, when well maintained can be dignified. For those looking for something a bit more subtle, goatees and mustaches may be what you need. Whether you want to portray yourself as artistic, cool, sexy or a little of each, these types of styles are easy to experiment with.
There are few things that will turn a woman off faster than food hanging from your facial hair. Remember though, you should always have a great looking beard by using excellent beard care products. Those who are accustomed to having facial hair don’t give it a second thought, keeping clean and neat is almost second nature. For you newbies out there, be sure to wipe your mouth with a napkin after you eat. Check yourself in the mirror before going out, especially on a date, at the office or attending some formal function.
There you have it, the basics to choosing and maintaining a beard or mustache. Be unique, stand out and redefine yourself all by just doing what already happens naturally!
Have fun, change your look until you find what suits you.
