Know Which Hairstyle To Match With Your Beard
Enhance your new facial hair with a new hairstyle to complement it.
Beard: Full long beard
The long, swept-back hair has been brought to our attention after Christian Bale showed off its full potential. When sweeping the hair back behind your ears, have a full beard. The main issue with this look is that you can often look too casual, bordering on scruffy. By shaping your beard regularly and keeping your hair swept back neatly, this look will become diverse enough to match with a smart suit.

Beard: Trimmed and shaped
Celebrities such as Colin Farrell and Bradley Cooper showcasing the look. This look is perfect for those not wishing to spend too much time scrutinising their facial hair. Be sure to keep your facial hair trimmed and well-shaped, as this will ensure you maintain a relatively smart appearance whilst retaining that on-trend edge.
Beard: Full beard
The undercut works very well for those with a full beard that has the same clipping length of the undercut. Ensure that the back and sides of your hair are shaved and then apply the same length for your beard. “In order to achieve this look, buy an electric clipper so you can consistently ensure the length of your beard is the same as the sides of your hair,” says hairstylist Asgar Saboo.
Beard: Short and shaggy beard
With geek chic continuing to grow in popularity, a side fringe is the perfect hairstyle to accompany a short shaggy beard. The beard will add a masculine touch to your side fringe hairstyle. In order to really make this look work, ensure that the sides of your hair are kept at a reasonable length and allow your fringe to grow to the point that it can be swept to the side effectively.
Short and slick
For short and slick hair, the person who always comes to mind is Ryan Gosling, whose hair suits his short well-kept stubble perfectly. Comb your hair often. “By having a smart hairstyle, the stubble adds a touch of masculinity and still maintains a casual look,” says hairstylist Agnes Chen.
Beard: French beard
This sleek and suave French beard is elegant for corporate men and even for those in creative fields like Hollywood actors Johnny Depp and Robert Downey Jr. To counter the sleekness, a mussed up hairstyle is best. It presents a cool demeanour and looks good with suits as much as T-shirts. Ask your hairstylist not to keep it too cropped (it should be shorter than a crew cut) and not too long either (the length of your hair at the back shouldn’t be grazing the shoulders). You don’t need much styling — just run your fingers through your hair. Use hair gel when you want to keep things sleek for a formal occasion.
