Amazing Beard Styles and Shaving Designs

A beard or goatee can make all the difference in a guy's appearance. Facial hair is an art form! You might be one of those guys who look great with a beard or someone who just wants to stand out from the crowd.

But you have to be careful which style you choose. I absolutely love certain styles and think a cleanly shaved head and a trim goatee or beard is great! On the other hand, there are some people that like to look like Grizzly Adams: Their choice, not mine. The trick is getting the perfect style for your face and personality— refined, player, or even grunge!

Thinking of changing your look? Want to look at all the options before you decide? Well, here are a ton of beard styles for you to look at, plus ideas, photos, and videos for how to (and how not to) design your beard. You will find...

1. Photos of famous facial hair

2. Neat, short, and trimmed beards, sideburns, and goatees

3. Longer, bushier, messier beards, sideburns, and goatees

4. How to get the look yourself, at home (DIY!)

Now, on to the beards!

      I have had a mostache for 40 yrs & a full beard for 32 yrs. Just lately I have tried new styles the last one being just a patch plus a chin plus a small chin beard, it was with some trepidation that my moustache went but now I have broken the long link I will try anything, maybe even beard less! Wish me luck on my next visit to the hairdressers!

      I grew a mustache so as not to be confused with my older brother.....who subsequently grew a beard, so I shaved. My friends and relatives said I have to grow it back as I just don't look right without it. I've been wearing it for 30 years now and get tempted to shave it off 'cause it's gone gray. I guess I'll just wiat for my hair to catch up.

      Beard styling is one way of expressing ones feelings and attitude. But before wearing a style, it is important to know which design fits and which should be avoided.

      I had a goatee in college, but the full beard I now sport has more to do with a semi-retired aversion to shaving than hirsute ambitions.

      Some "interesting" styles, for sure. I'm kind of an old-fashioned girl when it comes to beards, meaning I prefer a more traditional look, with a goatee being my favorite, but I do enjoy seeing all this funky facial hair. Very cool lens.
