Choosing a beard style can either be really difficult or super easy depending on how you look at it. Take a read and see what beard style and length will work for you best.
There are many to choose from. They range from simple handlebar mustaches all the way to footlong length beards and everything in between.
It's important to realize that there is no right answer to picking a beard style but there are certainly some tips and tricks to look out for.
The most important tip you can pick up from this article would be to utilize your natural beard shape and growing abilities to your advantage.
What do we mean by this?
For starters, if you are just starting to grow out your beard, don't act like it's at your desired length yet. If you are aiming for the glorious footlong length beard then you need to prepare your beard since its inception.
A big mistake most guys make when growing out a long beard is that they do not trim.
Now it definitely seems like it would make sense to not trim, right?
Well, you have to trim while growing your beard. Split ends occur and some follicles grow faster than others.
Evening your length is very important for appearance and beard health at the same time.
If you are having trouble growing your beard, we offer a wide array of growth products to stimulate hair follicles and promote blood circulation in the skin.
So if you are having patchy spots or want to grow your beard thicker and fuller then this is the place to start.
Short Beard Styles
Having a short beard lets you try out a lot of different styles if you don't want to commit to them at longer lengths.This is a good place to start experimenting.
There are certainly classics: goatee, chinstrap, thin pencil mustache, full beard, 5 o'clock stubble. There are many options to choose from.
A great way to start learning how to take care of longer beards is to start slow and grow your beard out completely. Then trim it down to where you want it.
For example, if you want a full beard at length 6 and your goatee at length 8....you should grow out your beard to length 10 and trim it down. It's hard to keep it looking perfect right from the beginning.
Recommended short beard styles: goatee, full beard, chinstrap, full beard but goatee is longer (see above length comment)

A great choice for any beard length, really. But medium beard styles definitely have the advantage. Your beard is long enough to get the full benefit of using a good quality beard shampoo and conditioner.
Most washes and conditioners are too harsh. They contain harsh chemicals/ingredients that strip way too much natural oil. Fortunuately our shampoo is specifically formulated for beards as it does not contain these harsh sulfates and other chemicals.
Our shampoo and conditioner are organic and won't overdry your skin or hair. Our conditioner works great as a co-wash as well. A co-wash is a conditioner that you also cleanse with, so you'd be skipping the shampoo occasionally. Conditioners like ours have enough cleansing power but your beard will feel amazingly soft.
Beards that have this degree of thickness are on the rare side so it wear it like a lion's mane.
Hair this thick requires more of an all around level of care that always starts with our beard shampoo in the shower.
Trimming will be on the slightly difficult side as you will have to make sure that all your edges are even.
Unevenness with thick beards are highly noticeable so it's a great idea to use Beard and Company's beard balm and pomade to help give it the proper shape.
Recommended thick beard styles: Short to long fade from top to bottom, shorter around the mustache and longer as it goes down, simple style but a great way to show off thickness

Beard Styles for Black Men
The thicker and more coarse the facial hair, the more moisture and attention it needs.
One of the best grooming tips for black men with coarse beards is to moisturize and hydrate your beard in different ways.
Stay away from regular soap and shampoo as they will strip the much needed moisture that your beard needs. Keeping it properly hydrated will keep ingrown hairs from forming as well.

No matter what style you choose, just keep proper care.
If you are having trouble growing a longer beard then you may have some underlying issue such as patchy spots, dry skin or allergies to synthetic fragrances in other products.
Whichever you choose, make it yours and wear it with manly pride.
