Beards come in a wide array of different colours, shapes and sizes, and to be perfectly honest I pretty much admire every attempt made when it comes to a Gent growing out some facial fluff. From the stubbly lookin' beginnings to the full admirable 'Lumberjack' beard mane, we can all appreciate a well maintained glorious facial forest. But what does a beard say about it wearer? Today we're going to delve into a few questions as we ask, What Does Your Beard Say About You?...
THE STUBBLE LOOK 5 O'CLOCK SHADOW ''BEARD'' .
Call me Mr Grumpy socks if you so wish, but I've never been a huge fan of the maintained 'stubble beard' look. Firstly, I don't feel it should be labeled as a beard as this look can be too easily achieved in as little as a day or so by simply forgetting the razor. I personally see beards as a symbol of a man's time, hard work, patience and dedication rather than forgetting to shave over the weekend. And I'm not alone in my train of thought here, many bearded blokes when asked also refuse to recognise stubble as a form of beard, rather the beginning of a man's bearding journey. Although studies do show some Women rather dig the '5 o'clock Shadow' look, likely due to numerous models sporting such stubble in various advertisements on billboards as well as popular Women's magazines.
THE UNKEMPT SCRUFFY LOOKIN' BEARD CAN BE A LOOK KILLER!
If you started out with the intention to grow out your beard to its absolute fullest without giving it the occasional (and usually very much needed!) trim every now and then you'll have probably experienced the 'scruffy look beard'. It is an easy misconception that if you leave a beard to its own devices it'll look huge and glorious in no time. But in truth if you don't tame and shape your furry chops every now and then you'll soon end up with an out of control looking facial forest that not many will admire, including yourself. Adding shape and controlling your beards direction of growth will help avoid the 'Hobo Joe' look and in fact could encourage your beards growth, health and wellbeing.
THE GOATEE BEARD IS STILL A RATHER POPULAR CHOICE!
A goatee beard comes in a few variations and has differed greatly according to the times and culture. Until the late 20th century the goatee was a term used to refer solely to a man's beard formed as a tuft of hair only on the chin rather than the facial cheeks. By the 1990's the term had evolved into the more familiar goatee style we know of today. George Michael sported what many consider to be the 'stereotypical' goatee in many of his music videos throughout his later music career. A well maintained goatee can give an extra sharp look to its wearer and is often associated with a wealthy mans persona.
THE 'LUMBERJACK' BEARD STILL REMAINS THE LADIES HOT FAVOURITE!
When you hear the word 'Beard' you are most likely to envision the typical 'Lumberjack' big bushy beard mane over any other beard style out there today. Beards as a whole are often seen as somewhat intimidating, maybe because of their strong yet firm stern look that they can add to a Gentleman's image. But above all the 'Lumberjack' beard still remains the most popular and loved beard of today. A well kept beard mane displays a man's patience which can grant him an edgy respectable image to his admirers. On the flipside of looking somewhat 'intimidating' when a full bearded man smiles or laughs he goes from 'strong and stern' to 'big softy teddy bear' in approximately 0.1 seconds. A look that would melt the heart of any 'beardy lover' I'm sure you'd agree.
