What are the Thin Beard Styles that Give You the Best Look?
Have you been trying to keep up with the latest beard trend, or have you given up hope? Have you discovered that your beard comes in patches rather than the full and bodied beard you had envisioned? I have a suggestion for you, how about you try and forget what is trending, and instead focus on something that actually works with your facial shape and the actual amount of hair you can really grow.
Who am I to say that you can’t grow a healthy beard? Even if you consider your facial hair growing in irregularly, it does not mean you can’t grow facial hair. It simply means you should be trying thin beard styles instead of full beard versions.
Thin beard styles, (for those who have no idea what I am talking about), tend to be facial hair that is trimmed and maintained to a thin line along a man’s jaw line. The concept is easy enough to grasp, but how do you get the look, and what style is the best for those who must deal with thin beard growth?
How to Pick a Thin Beard Style that works for you :
In today’s world, there are now a variety of beard styles for thin beards. Encouragingly, choosing the one that best compliments you is easier than you think. When deciding on a style, you need to determine your face shape and how well your facial hair grows in. (Be honest guys there’s no shame in not having a full beard, it is definitely something you can work with.) To determine what your features are ask yourself the following questions:
1. Is your face round? Does your chin and forehead have the same width across? With this type of face frame, you have the ability to narrow out your features by creating well trimmed sideburns with defined edges and a thinly manicured chinstrap.
To finish the look, top it off with a well trimmed horizontal mustache that joins your facial hair on the jaw line. This can help draw the focus away from the center of the face.
2. Do you have narrow face features? Do you possess a facial frame where the width is smaller at the chin wider at your cheekbones? This type of face would be great to style a thin beard that is blended and rounded along the jaw which can make the face appear fuller. This look can also even out your features.
3. Are your facial features more on the square side? Decide if your face’s width at the forehead and chin are the same dimensions. If you are trying to direct attention away from the squareness, you should stick with a sideburns/chinstrap combo,
This combo has the ability to frame your face while taking away the sharpness. A well trimmed mustache that joins the chinstrap is a great idea to draw the eyes away from the center of the face.
4. Do you have the coveted oval face? To establish if you have an oval face, look at the width of the jaw and forehead. Characteristically, the face length is larger than the width of the cheekbones, and forehead is larger than the jaw line. It also has the angle of the jaw rounded.
Importantly, the oval face can go with anything and can wear any style of thing beard. For a strong look, go with a thin chinstrap sideburn combo with this is finely trimmed along the jaw line. This will define your chin and give you fresh bold look.
When styling you should purchase a quality razor. A good razor will achieve the close shaved look and avoid nicks, cuts, and razor burns. For the best results, use a hot towel on your face before your shave and a cold rinse afterwards. This will help minimize your pores and prevents redness and ingrown hairs.
Styling can be difficult, but it is important to remember to trim and maintain other areas where hair grows. Clean up your neck and remove those stray hairs for a polished look.
Follow these four steps to make your shaving experience easier:
- Buzz it
- Clean lower neck.
- Fade your facial hair so it looks even.
- Remove the wondering hairs.
Don’t forget to properly care for your new facial hair. Besides grooming and trimming, after you get to your goal length, you want to make sure you find a good conditioner and shampoo to use for your beard.
If the goal is a well groomed beard, it is best to not shave for four to six weeks to ensure you get optimal growth. Resist shaving it off once it starts itching. (This excludes the regular care and cutting of the unwanted hairs.)
In order to see a healthy beard grow, eat a healthy diet and get plenty of sleep. Your body can’t function without proper nutrients! Finally, don’t let a bunch of food fall in your facial hair. As common sense as that seems it is a sure way make your new beard style look extra greasy and unappealing.
