Which beard style suits me?

Looking for the best beard style to suit your face?

First, you need to decide on the shape of your face.

Forehead - Measure from the peak of one eyebrow arch across your face to the peak of the other

Cheekbones - Measure across your cheekbones. Start and end at the pointiest part below the outer corner of each eye.

Jaw - Measure from tip of your chin to below your ear at the point at which your jaw angles upwards. Multiply that number by two to get your jawline measurement.

Face length - Measure from the tip of your chin to the centre of your hairline

Now note which is the largest of the four and compare to the profiles below.  This will help describe the shape of your face

How-to-Determine-Face-Shape

Round - The face length and cheekbones have a similar measurement.  The forehead and jawline are less than the face length and are similar.  The jawline is soft and less defined.

Square - All measurements are similar with a sharp angular jaw.

Rectangle/Oblong - The face length is the longest measurement. The other 3 are a similar size.

Diamond - The face length is the longest, then in descending order, cheekbones, forehead and jawline.  The chin is pointed.

Triangular -   The jawline measures greater than the cheekbones, which measures larger than the forehead.

Oval - The face length is greater than the width of your cheekbones. The forehead is greater than the jawline. And the angle of the jaw is rounded.

Heart - The forehead measures greater than both the cheekbones and jawline.  The chin is pointed.

Beard Style

Now you have determined the shape of your face, we can look at which style of beard is best suited.

Round

If you grow a large unkempt beard, then you will end up looking like a bowling ball. What you need is to grow the hair longer on the bottom and shorter on the sides.  So, a triangular shape works well, such as a goatee.

Oval face

With this shape of face, almost all styles will work well.  As the oval face is  the most symmetrical, almost any type of beard will work without it affecting the symmetry.  Just avoid any sharp angles

Rectangle

This is a longer face shape, so you want to avoid have a long beard.  You need to give it some width to take away from the length of your face.  So a beard that is short with fuller sides will add width to your narrow face.

Triangular

With this shape, you need to take attention away from the more prominent chin.

So, try and avoid too much on the checks.  One way to do this is to grow sideburns further down your face.  It is recommended to keep the beard short and squared at the bottom.

Heart

With a heart shape it is often a smaller face, so a full beard will only make your face look smaller.  One suggestion is to go with designer stubble which won’t overpower your natural bone structure.  Also, leave more length in the chin and moustache to add depth to your jawline.

Square

You need to avoid looking too square.  To complement your face shape you need a rounded or triangular shape.  Growing a goatee-style beard will lengthen the chin, which will soften wide jawbones.square

Diamond

A diamond face shape is widest at the cheekbones so the idea is to keep hair on the chin to offset them

Keep the beard shorter and avoid it being too pointy.  So, you should either square it off or give it an oval look.

Conclusion

To have a beard that looks good you need to consider the shape of your face, and then choose a style that compliments your face.
