Most Nigerian men nowadays have added this to their look as an essential. Why not? To be honest, most of them look honest in it while the others…errr…not so much.
If it doesn’t look right on you or nice–then there is a big possibility you are wearing it the wrong way. Here are a few steps to guide you on how your beard should be shaped according to your face:
THE ROUND FACE
A neatly trimmed beard designed to slim the face is the best look for this face shape. Hard lines along the cheekbone and a slightly “squared off” neckline creates the final touch toward a slimmer, oval-looking face.
THE LONG FACE
The best way to give the appearance of a shorter face is to stick with neatly trimmed beards or beard scuff.
This takes the attention away from a narrow jawline.
THE SMALL FACE
Skip the beard and go clean shaven. Any beard you attempt to wear will only make your face appear even smaller.
THE TRIANGULAR FACE:
This face has a wide hairline, a broad jawline and a narrow chin. To create balance, the lower hair (just below the cheekbones) has to be filled out. You want a full beard designed to take away from the pointy chin. Avoid too much fullness along the side of the face as this will give the appearance of an even wider jaw.
Keep you facial hair short and trimmed. You already have strong lines.
6. NO CHIN
No chin? No problem. If you can grow your facial hair, keep your beard full while shaping it to give off the appearance of a strong jawline and pronounced chin.
7. SQUARE FACE
A short beard with hard lines or a scruffy beard will help you accentuate your jawline.
And there you have it folks! Follow these easy steps and you’re well on your way to grooming the ultimate beard.
