20 types of youthful and adult beards

There are many beard types juvenile and adult. Wearing a beard or mustache style with a proper trim helps to appear attractive.

A modern and classy beard makes men not only look more manly but also tough. There are different types, and depending on the shape of the face and the style, one will be more suitable than another.

beard types

1. Short beard

It is achieved by leaving grow facial hair for a few days after shaving.

2. Medium beard

It is a slightly longer beard than the short one. It takes a few more days to get the right length.

A medium beard should be between 3 and 5 millimeters long. If it is longer, it will begin to look scruffy and unkempt.

A medium beard looks much better when it is kept to one third of the lower part of the man’s face, just above the Adam’s apple. The upper cheeks should be clean shaven.

3. Long beard

It is slightly longer than the average beard, and should be longer than 5 centimeters. To achieve this look it is necessary to use an adjustable electric machine.

Whoever decides to wear a long beard must trim it to maintain the same look. Loose hairs are removed with scissors or a precision trimmer. Any hair that grows above the lower third of the face and below the Adam’s apple should be removed.

4. Full beard

It can be difficult to achieve, because not all men grow full facial hair.

It is characterized by having hair on almost the entire face: on cheeks, chin and neck to above the lip.

This beard takes time. Therefore, it is recommended that you grow your beard while you are on vacation, to get through the first phase.

After four weeks, those who have been successful in growing their beards can begin to shape it. It is important to keep an eye on hair growth in order to trim it frequently and not look unkempt.

5. French fork beard

It is known like this because of the shape it has: lThe original French forks had only two tines. It is characterized by the fact that the hair extends beyond the chin and is divided into two equal segments.

It is not a new style, but in recent years it became popular thanks to the famous captain Jack Sparrow, of The pirates of the caribbeanplayed by Johnny Depp.

6. Ducktail Beard

It is another version of the full beard, and its name is taken from its appearance, since the lower part, where the chin is, resembles a duck tail.

To create it, you only need to leave the upper part of the beard short and let the hair grow in the chin area.

7. Circle Beard

It is for men who want a beard and a well-groomed appearance. The name of this beard derives from its shape. Combine mustache and goatee to create a rounded shape. It is popular because it is relatively easy to maintain.

As long as its round shape is maintained and the hair is kept short, it is acceptable. It works perfectly for men with square jaws and faces.

8. Goatee

The goatee is worn on the chin and should never connect with a mustache, so it should be shaved.

To have this type of beard, the hair must be allowed to grow just below the lower lip and the goatee must be the same width as the mouth. The sides are defined as vertical or slightly curved lines, depending on the person’s taste.

It is ideal for those who have a weak chin or a round face, as it helps to cover that part of the face.

9. Extended Goatee

Also known as a Hollywood beard, it is a cross between a goatee and a mustache.

More variations of this look can be created by adjusting the shapes and angles of the hair extensions. It looks like a mustache connected to a beard but without the sideburns.

It is recommended to let all facial hair grow, and once grown enough, trim the beard to the desired shape.

10. Imperial Beard

In essence it is not a beard, but rather a long mustache that extends across the face.

This style became popular in France during the time of the Second Empire (1852-1870), and from there it took its name. A long mustache is left, with the tips turned up, and the fine, long and pointed goatee.

11. Van Dyke Beard

It is a goatee combined with a mustache, a variation of the extended goatee.

It was named Van Dyke after the 17th century Flemish painter Anthony Van Dyke. In recent years, it has experienced a revival in popularity.

Wearing a beard like this means having the rest of your cheeks completely smooth and free of facial hair. For this type of beard to look better, it must be very defined.

Anyone who opts for this style should pay attention to the shape that the beard takes on the chin area, to ensure that the lines remain clear over time.

12. Anchor Beard

This type of beard owes its name to the nautical anchor. To achieve this look, the man must have a face without sideburns.

But the beard must extend along the jaw line, and then the point is designed. This should be connected to a pencil whisker, so the overall shape looks like an anchor.

Achieving this look can be a bit difficult, since it is a beard that combines many styles. It looks better on men with square or oblong faces.

13. Balbus Beard

It also has several variants, but the main one consists of wearing a covered chin combined with a long mustache, disconnected from it. The mustache may or may not curl.

To achieve this style, the mustache is allowed to grow and a goatee is sculpted to join the lower lip. The contact zone must grow abundantly.

It was associated with the fascists, because the one who made it popular was the Italian Ítalo Balbo, one of Mussolini’s henchmen. But in recent times, she has been worn by actor Robert Downey Jr.

14. Beard Lamb Chops

The sideburns are longer, extending to the corners of the mouth and even lower.

To achieve this, men should let their sideburns grow freely, and shave the chin area. A sharp imaginary line should then be created at each corner of the mouth and along the edge of the jaw line.

If you want, you can give it a curved shape so that it meets the mustache area. It is ideal for bald men and for those who have a slightly round face.

15. Beard necklace

It is also known as Lincoln or Donegal. Trace the jawline to join the sideburns and frame the face.

It can be worn slightly thin or wide, but the latter is recommended for those with narrow faces, as the density of hair adds contour.

Achieving this style takes time. The cuts must be made from the ears and must not be forgotten to shave the mustache and neck. The collar beard looks best when worn full, and the length should be moderate.

16. Verdi Beard

Basically, it is a full, long and stylish beard. It must be short and rounded at the bottom and must not be longer than 10 cm measured from the lip.

The Verdi beard also wears a mustache, but separate from the beard. This should not grow more than 1.5 cm from the corner of the mouth and should always look flawless.

It is inspired by the opera composer Giuseppe Verdi.

17. Garibaldi Beard

It’s like a hipster beard but not too long. It is wide and complete, with a rounded bottom that also integrates a mustache. The Garibaldi style should not be more than 20 cm in length.

The mustache must be kept neat, but the beard can be allowed to grow naturally. In fact, the more natural the beard looks, the better the look will be.

18. Dutch Beard

It is a voluminous and long beard (although it can also be a few centimeters) that connects from side to side.

This look is similar to the one used by the «Amish», its main characteristic is that it does not wear a mustache.

19. Bandholz Beard

It’s a recent style, popularized by a man who pretty much created the mustache and beard care industry with his Beardbrand company. This is Eric Bandholz, founder of the famous product brand.

Achieving this look requires patience, as for the first few months it will look patchy and unkempt. The beard should be allowed to grow naturally until it reaches its full length. After grown is when it is shaped.

This style has a mustache that connects with the beard.

twenty. Shaved off

It’s not technically a beard style, but rather its absence. But it’s a look that involves facial hair, and in this case it has to do with shaving it all off.
