When people talk about hair styles or beard styles, they tend to think of them as two separate entities. The hair on top of your head needs a style, and the hair on your face needs a style, right? But do you ever think of them as one in the same?
To step up your look and really boost your style, you need to pick a hairstyle that complements your beard and vice versa. This will give you a nice cohesive look that makes looking good effortless, while making your whole look feel intentional. Think about it like this: you ever see those guys that wear something totally unusual, but you can tell that they know what they're doing and for that reason alone it looks so much better? It's just like that. You can pull off a really unique look by mixing things up and making sure the whole picture fits together.
So today we're going to give you 5 trendy hair/beard styles that will step up your hair and beard game and make you look amazing.
1. Faded Undercut with Full Beard
This is a very common hair style right now, and for good reason. You can mix it up in a bunch of different ways to match your head and face shape, style and even the amount of maintenance you're willing to put up with. Longer hair on top typically means more time to style, and the shorter the sides are the more frequently you'll need to get a cut to keep it up. Medium length hair up top and medium length sides will typically result in a stylish, low-maintenance cut that's sure to turn heads. This style is versatile and goes really well with both casual styles as well as suits and formal wear.You can keep the top clean looking or give a messy look to change up your style from day to day as well which just makes it that much more versatile.
2. Pompadour with Full Beard
This is a really clean look that brings back a classic hairstyle with a modern beard style. The pompadour gives you a put-together look that's unrivaled by almost any other men's hair cut. When you add in the beard it creates oe of the most stylish hair/beard combinations out there. A messier beard will help balance the clean look of the pomp to create an intentional messiness, or you can go super clean cut and kill it in a more fashion-forward look.
3. French Crop with Short Beard
The french crop is probably the most fashion-forward look for men's short hair out there at the time of writing this. It's versatile like the undercut style above in the sense that it can be made messy or styled to look really clean-cut. Personally I think the best beard style with the french crop is a longer stubble or short beard. But feel free to play around with it and see what you think looks good! It's all about what makes you feel confident, proud and happy.
4. Bald with Full Beard
Bald is in. Now you may be thinking, "Wait a second - I thought going bald was every man's biggest fear." I'd have to disagree - no more are the days of fearing your receding hairline!
Let me clarify - comb overs are not in, and neither is any cut that is an obvious attempt at covering your balding areas. What IS in, is going all in and owning what genetics threw at you. If you can take the plunge, shave or buzz down to bald and own it with confidence, you'll be killing the style game. Add in a full beard and you're unstoppable. The thing is, gentlemen, that modern style is all about going against the grain. People love when you do something a little unique, and bald with a beard is just that. Having the confidence to own what 90% of other men fear the most is one of the sexiest things a man can do.
5. Long Hair with Beard
Long hair with a beard is something that has been popping up on the runways more and more frequently. Same as #4, the big thing here is that it's out of the norm. If you have nice healthy locks and big full beard you'll stand out from the crowd in the best way possible. And while a lot of people wish the "man-bun" never made an appearance, this look is the best home for one if you choose to wear it. It gives off that beach bum vibe that so many people can't resist.
If you took nothing else away from this article, I'd hope that you at least realize that there are so many ways to wear your beard and hair. There's no cookie-cutter look you should go after, this is simply meant as a guide for those people who may not know where to start in their styling. Grooming and style are all about what suits you and makes you feel good when you look in the mirror.
Play around with these styles and see what you like best. Just make sure if you plan to wear them with a beard that you ensure you have a cohesive look that will go a long way in helping you look stylish and put together.
