Styles of facial hair
Let’s get a look at some types of facial hair:
This type of whiskers is ideal for confident, courageous men. It is also apt to slightly brutal men, who don’t like to waste much time in front of a mirror grooming facial hair. Such type covers low part of a face: cheeks, chin, sideburns, and neck, it is also connected with moustache. In addition, it takes not much time and efforts to make; all you need is to stop shaving. Full whiskers suit triangle and oval shaped faces. It could be of different length: short and long. An advantage is that such facial hair style will warm you in any cold weather and you can easily change it to another whiskers type you like.
Well-groomed goatee looks great on every man. Especially it suits those who have triangular, round faces or pointy chins. First you need to decide what type of goatee you’d like to wear. If you want to experiment with all styles, you are recommended to start with full goatee. This type is good for men with good growth of hair on the chin and mustache areas and weak on the cheeks. Facial hair under the lower lip is connected with mustache forming oval shape. Another variation of goatee is when facial hair on the chin is not connected with mustache, the so called Van Dyke style. It was extremely fashionable in the 17th century, was revived in the 19th century and is quite trendy among the rougher sex nowadays. You can also grow your hair only on the chin under your lower lip. It’s width identical to the width of the mouth.
