The Full Beard
The full beard is your classic, typical beard, and depends a lot on your genetics. The Full Beard is straightforward and efficient, and easy to keep groomed and clean. Once your facial hair has reached medium stubble, start shaping with a razor. Expect about six weeks of growing and developing to achieve this full, brilliant look. A full beard is a great beard!
This beard style is perfect for those of you who want a full, long, big beard without the hassle of the length. This is ideal for the oval and rectangular faced man and doesn’t take much to take care. Let your beard grow for a few months. You will trip and shape the lower area from time to time to make it look round, while the mustache’s length should be kept under control. Style goes a long way, even on your face!
The Short Boxed Beard
This beard is simple, easy and efficient. It offers a clean look for those of you who do not want a big, full, long beard. While they do require a bit more care and constant shaping, a sharp short boxed beard is good for the office or the night out, and good for nearly any face. Box it up and upgrade your beard style!
