How to Choose the Right Beard Shape for Your Face

by: Dave Alexander
http://menshair.about.com/od/facialhair/a/beardshapes.htm


Properly trimmed and shaped facial hair can go a long way to enhance desirable facial features or take emphasis off weaknesses. While each face will have its own special considerations such as size of mouth, nose, and jawline, there are some general rules for choosing the right facial hair for your face type. Let's look at each.

The Round Face
When shaping the beard for a round face, go a bit longer at the chin to add length and make the face appear less round. Avoid bushy sideburns and keep the sides of the beard short. In lieu of a full beard, a goatee is often a good option for a round face.

The Long Face
Exactly opposite of the round face, the long face requires a beard which is fuller at the sides and shorter at the chin. The goal here is to add width to the sides and make the face appear less long. Make sure to avoid abrupt changes in length so the shaping is not obvious.

The Square Face
Similar to shaping a beard for a round face, the beard for a square face should be shorter at the sides and longer at the chin to add length to the face. Once again, a goatee is also a good option for men with square faces.

The Large Face
Since the face is large, any small facial hair or beard will appear out of proportion and make the face appear bigger. Keep the beard fuller and the mustache larger. Also follow the rules above for the appropriate face shape.

The Small Face
Small faces require small facial hair. Larger, fuller styles will make the face get lost and appear out of proportion. Also follow the rules above for the appropriate face shape.

The Oval Face
You lucky man! The oval face shape is considered the ideal shape and requires no special shaping to balance facial features. Do whatever you like and you'll look great.

Trimming a beard



Some recommend only having this done professionally. Others won't let anyone else get near their beards with scissors or trimmers.
If you're going to trim your beard yourself, you'll need the right tools. You will have to decide whether to trim using scissors or a beard trimmer.
If you decide to trim primarily with scissors, consider purchasing a pair of professional barber's scissors.
When considering beard trimmers, a rechargeable cordless model might be a good choice.
You should also have a good wide-toothed comb. Optionally, for the mustache, you might want to have a fine-toothed comb. Some specialty stores sell small mustache combs.
A good-sized wall mirror is usually indispensible. You might also benefit from a magnifying mirror and possibly a three-way mirror.
Do not trim a wet beard or mustache. Wet hair is longer. When it dries you may find you've trimmed too much.
If you use a comb and scissors: Comb through the beard and cut the hair on the outside of the comb. It will take some practice to perfect this technique. It is better to err on the side of not cutting enough rather than cutting too much.
To help maintain a balance between the two sides of your face, you may find it useful to start near the ear on one side and trim down to the chin. Then repeat on the other side.
Beard trimmers almost always come with an adjustable and removable trimming guide. By adjusting the position of the trimming guide, you control how closely it will trim your beard. Refer to the instructions supplied with your trimmer for details. Until you've mastered the use of your trimmer, it is best to adjust the guide for a longer beard length setting at first.
To trim your mustache, first comb it straight down. Then use either the beard trimmer or scissors. Start in the middle and trim first towards one side of the mouth, then towards the other. Normally, you should not shave or trim the top of the mustache. It usually looks best if you let it grow all the way up to your nose.
After you've trimmed your beard and mustache, then you should maintain the shape of your beard. Use the beard trimmer with the adjustable trimming guide removed (be careful) to keep the neck line of your beard well-defined. Alternatively, you could carefully shave the lower portion of your neck to maintain the neck line of your beard.
Miscellaneous stray hairs can be removed with a trim razor. Plucking them is not recommended.

Keeping a beard clean

Just like your hair, wash and shampoo your beard regularly. A mild shampoo is easier on your skin.
After shampooing, you may use a conditioner. Be sure to rinse thoroughly. Failure to rinse sufficiently may result in flaking. Because beard hairs are so coarse, conditioners will have less effect on the beard than on the hair on your head. But a conditioner will still help make your beard feel softer.
Gently pat and wipe your beard dry with a towel. Blow drying is not really necessary and can be harsh on your skin.
Comb your beard and mustache with a wide-toothed comb to remove tangles. Optionally, you can finish up by using a brush.

How To Wash and What To Use?



I used to ask myself this until i asked my barber a couple of months ago this exact question in regards to my beard. The trick to growing a beard and keeping it clean is to wash it frequently and diligently, more so like head hair, but the beard is a bit more difficult in that it may grow in different angles. This makes it essential to comb it ad apply conditioner frequently to prevent frizzing etc.

I highly recommend using Garnier Shampoo or Head and Shoulder Brands and apply conditioner generously. Comb and shape it to your liking afterwards.

Don't worry we weren't asking for your vision to be 20/20. Just am maintaining this thread as a beard grower's advice to fellow beard growers. Thanks.

No one is stroking any ego, except for our beards. :)

Back to the subject matter.

I do notice that the beard look is coming back into the fold. Perhaps not so much in the Philippines or Asia as it is not popular there, the clean cut look is preferred in Asia-Pacific, i notice.

you might just be surprised if behind the facial veil of my avatar is a great moustache, 20/20 vision or no.

anyway, whoever erased the pic that bai hubag posted in this thread had caused other readers to miss a sample of a great beard, which should have been part of this advice thread by a beard guru.  (fortunately, those interested can go to another thread where it also appears.  i just came across it in 'your last word is mine'.)

by the way, middle eastern men have great beards.  try taking a tip or two from them as well.

p.s. sans the ego, duha ka tipasi maayo i-stroke sa bungot. ;D  kun mokatol, mao pod ang gamiton pag-ibot.

Trimmed Full Beard Style



This one has a casual look to it, tho requires the most dedication and care. Trimming is required daily.
I like this one.

The Light Beard Style



Very nice. This one requires growth of the goatie and mustache, with a little growth in the sideburns, and sparing growth on the connection.
The 'cleanest' beard style.

Growth thus far:




Tip: when shaving, make sure to shave off the lower lip hair, as i find it quite itchy if kept. When you do clean the sides , do so softly and layer the beard as it grows. Apply ample amount of after shave to areas that are 'clean cut'. You get this amazing transition from clean baby-soft to beardy. I love it. I hope you guys who are growing beards try this out as it does look good.

2nd Tip: Make sure to trim the excess patches if you can. Keep everything uniform.
