Types of Beard Styles

1. Goatee Beard: A classic style featuring hair around the chin and mouth, often with the mustache disconnected. I used to rock this style a lot, it looks very good too be honest

2. Faded Beard: A modern trend that blends the beard hair into the sideburns and cheeks, creating a seamless, fade-out effect. This will be my current go to style now that I increased my beard growth.

3. Stubble: The quintessential rugged look, achieved by maintaining short facial hair that doesn't exceed a few millimeters in length. Perfect for early stages of beard growth, especially if it is patchy.

4. Patchy Beard: Embrace your unique facial hair growth pattern and transform it into a stylish beard with proper grooming. Locate your patches, and style around them. Make sure to use beard growing products to grow facial hair on the patchy areas as well.

5. Chin Strap Beard: A thin strip of hair that follows the jawline, creating a defined border for your beard. Perfect for all my guys with weaker chins. The chin strap gives an illution of a stronger chin, I have used this beard style for that exact reason. Just keep the beard short for this.

Extra beard styling tip: I have experience that keeping the hair longer on the chin and tighter on the cheeks and below the chin forms the face extremely well. If you keep everything the same length it is easy that any face weaknesses such as a week chin shines through, even if you have a beard. Lets try to avoid the double chins, unless that is what we want to have! Check my current beard and beard growth increase here.

Take your time to exlore the different beard styles and stay true to yourself. Try to find the best style for your current growth. Styles like the Goatee beard can be really nice while you are still growing your full beard.

Beard Trimmer - Your Ultimate Styling Tool

To achieve the perfect beard style, investing in the best beard trimmer is crucial. A high-quality trimmer allows you to shape your beard precisely and maintain consistent length. Look for trimmers with adjustable settings, sharp blades, and ergonomic designs for maximum control and comfort. The trimmer I use is linked below.

I am really happy with it. With that being said, any other trimmer with similar clippers would do. The thing i like with this one is that you can open a lever 4 steps with each clipper to easily form your beard and turn in to the length you want without any cuts. It was a good investment for my personal care.

Beard Styling Techniques

1. Prepare Your Beard: Before trimming, wash your beard with a mild cleanser and pat it dry. This ensures a clean canvas for styling. Your personal care is always key when shaving and trimming your beard.

2.Trimming Tips: Start with a longer guard setting on the trimmer to avoid cutting too much hair at once. Gradually reduce the guard size for precision. As I mentioned, this is the reason why i love the clipper above

3. Sculpting the Neckline: Define your beard's neckline by trimming any hair below it. Aim for a natural curve that complements your face shape. Do NOT cut this line too high. A tip i can give you when cutting the line below your neck, look are yourself head on in the mirror and mark the line straight forward. A few fingers width of length above the adam's apple is usually a good rule of tumb. 

4. Filling in Patchy Areas: For those with patchy beards, consider embracing shorter beard styles or using a beard pencil to fill in gaps temporarily. This can be done if you really care, if not, just rock that patchy beard to be honest. We are on a beard growth journey either way.
