Choosing A Beard StyleMen’s facial hair styles come in a wide variety. Choosing the best facial hair style is actually more than just letting the hair on your upper lip grow out. And there are several things to ponder before deciding on a facial hair style that works for you. Some things to consider are:
· Shape of face
· Width of your mouth
· Size of your nose
· Fullness and size of your upper lip area
· Thickness and density of facial hair
· Texture of facial hair
· Color(s) of facial hair
· Shape of jaw and chin lines
Facial hair proportions are important: You can grow a moustache to help balance a large, round face. You can disguise a soft jawline with a neatly edged beard. You can also round out a square face or pointy chin with a beard. Facial hair is a great way to camouflage a wide variety of flaws, including acne scars. To help you decide which whisker hair style is best for you, consult your barber. They’re trained in assessing facial features, shapes and hair-growth patters and can be great resources to help you fine tune a beard style ideal for you.
