Growing a beard is a hard thing to do if you aren’t genetically blessed. Even still, some beards don’t grow in full until some men are well into adulthood. Beards used to have a stigma attached to them: you were unprofessional, dirty, aggressive, or even threatening. In modern times, that stigma still exists for more conservative professions, like the armed forces or in the healthcare field. Celebrities often change their look for a role, shaving or growing out their hair or facial hair. Some famous people are known for their signature beards, and when shaved off, look completely unrecognizable!
Types of Beard Styles
Regardless of the beard length or style, as long as it is well-groomed, rocking a beard can be a nice change. According to the American Academy of Dermatology Association, if you want a healthy-looking beard, you need to take care of the skin beneath it. The right skin care can prevent problems like acne, beard dandruff, and itch. It is important to wash your face and beard daily, otherwise, dirt, oils, germs, pollution, and dead skin cells that build up on your beard can clog your pores and irritate your skin. Next is moisturizing your skin and beard. Though this may seem like unnecessary steps, this will help soften your skin and beard hairs. Plus, why progress aging?
Beards add contrast and dimension to your face. Since not everyone’s faces are shaped the same, there are different styles that look better on some people and not others. For those with square-shaped faces, goatees are better suited. Those with rounder faces should opt for beards fuller in length on the chin. For oval-shaped heads, when it comes to facial hair or the hair on top of your head, any style would look great.
