All forms and types of beard in men

We know how difficult it is to find and grow the very form of facial hair that is perfect in style and emphasizes all the charms of your face. That is why, already in the past year, they decided to make a selection for you of the most popular and visually winning beards, which will definitely take the first places in the tops of 2020 and will definitely show off on men's faces!

Clean shaven

This is not a kind of beard, it is rather the best option for young people who prefer minimal hair care in the morning, like to sleep longer, instead of smearing with various oils and styling products. Beard care is a very serious matter, therefore, the very first, practical and fashionable look of a beard at all times is its complete absence.

Determine the type of person

Beard design depends on many factors. In order to choose the right style, in addition to fashion trends, pay attention to the shape of the face, the general parameters of the male figure. For example, any kind of beard in short men with fine features will cause a mixed reaction from others. Suvorov’s beard or “Garibaldi” will evoke associations with the gnome Gimli from the famous saga, and a small beard concentrates additional attention on the size of a man.

Stylists recommend the types of beards to be built in accordance with the shape of the face. If a man has an oval face, almost all varieties of a beard will suit him. If the face is diamond-shaped - the style of the beard should include an abundance of vegetation, for example, “wolverine”, or a beard - a screen. If the face has an oblong shape - the beard in men should be of medium length. A short beard will also be relevant.

When the shape of the face resembles a circle, male beards should visually lengthen the contours of the face. The “French fork” or French beard will look great. The so-called "goatee" is also appropriate.

The boatswain beard or the Scandinavian, Norwegian beards that became fashionable at the turn of the 20th century will look good on male faces, visually resembling a square. Men's beard haircuts, suggesting a rounded ending, will give the face the necessary roundness.

A beard style with rounded or square visualization will look elegant on triangular faces. A model haircut of the Garibaldi beard, named after the Italian revolutionary, the commander of the nineteenth century, is a good option for this type of person.

Stylish whiskers, a small stubble on the chin will help holders of heart-shaped or pear-shaped faces.

The standard scheme for determining the type of person may not be applicable to a particular person because of his physiological characteristics. The types of beard haircuts that a man wants to try should be selected individually, preferably with a professional beard hairdresser.

What is beard modeling

With the development of the beauty industry, hairdressers specializing in hairstyles for vegetation on the lower part of the head began to be called barbers. For the Russian language, the term "barber" is a double borrowing. He came to our speech from English, and the British used the Latin word for the name of the profession. In fact, a barber is just a beard. But by ear it is perceived more unusual than, say, a barber, hairdresser or barber.

Men's haircuts, modeling beards take time from half an hour to fifty minutes. Depending on the tool that the wizard uses, the complexity of the work may take longer. The most delicate operations are carried out with a dangerous razor. For minor adjustments to the beard shape, a trimmer is used. You can cut your mustache or trim your hair (for example, a plaid) with hairdressing scissors.

Beards in men require large enough care to add presentability to their owner, rather than inducing others to think about cave dwelling. If there is a desire to have a beautiful beard, but there is no experience in caring for it, it is better to turn to the services of professional hairdressers, at least for the first time. Then it will be possible to follow the state of facial hair on their own.

Any modeling involves the preliminary growth of hair, which is then cut or shaved, depending on the type of barbs in men. Short beards, beards with curly shaved edges (for example, a mustache with a goatee or a Mexican beard) require more frequent adjustments than the relatively long "boulanger" or Irish beards.

Not all types of beards and mustaches will suit a person, even if they correspond to his face shape. The hair color, its natural density should be taken into account. Owners of dark, thick hair can afford both short beards and medium-long beards. Long and lush beards are suitable if a man in his temperament and behavior matches the chosen image.

Blonde hair is less distinguished against the background of the European face, so the growth of wide, voluminous beards will not cause dissonance, even if their carrier is introvert and prone to melancholy.

To quickly grow hair, the skin should be moisturized and nourished with masks. During the growth of vegetation, it is worth looking at what beards are and choosing your version using a computer program. To do this, upload your photo and substitute different versions of beards to it.

After reaching the required length, discuss with the master the desired result and do the actual haircut and modeling.

After creating the image, the work does not end. Like any hairstyle, a beard requires care and care. Depending on the complexity of the design, in addition to the usual washing and combing, adjustments are required with a trimmer, razor, scissors. If the hair structure is loose, oils are used to strengthen the hair and give shine to the hair.

25 popular beard species

There are several dozen types of beards in men. Names are given in honor of famous people, animals, professions, whose representatives were seen wearing a certain type of beard. The combination of a beard, mustache, whiskers give rise to various variations of the same hairstyle. Youth and classic styles are presented in various design options for facial hair.

Often, the layman is unable to distinguish between similar hairstyles, it can only barbers or people who seriously delve into the topic. The most popular beard styles combine a mustache and, in fact, the beard itself. Consider the most interesting beard and mustache haircuts.

Three day stubble

A three-day stubble beard is a great way to create a manly, rude style without resorting to growing a thick “head of hair”. To achieve spectacular unshaven, it is necessary not to shave off facial hair for 3–6 days.

The length of the beard on the face can vary from 0.5 to 6 mm. The generally accepted standard is 2-4 mm.

Goatee (Spanish)

A wedge-shaped short beard, goatee with a rounded bezel on the chin, can give the male face a slight aristocracy and sophistication. It can be performed in a duet with sideburns or a graceful mustache.

Goatee beards are divided into three main types.

Classic version
  • bristles are present only on the chin,
  • pointed wedge-shaped beard,
  • mustache is missing.
Spanish Spaniard
  • the wedge-shaped form of the beard is replaced by a neatly shaved "island" in the center of the chin,
  • thin antennae smoothly connect with a beard, encircling the chin with a rounded contour.

Vandeikovsky styleThe wedge-shaped "island" on the chin does not connect with the elegant antennae.

Goatee is a universal beard that can beautify any male face.

Mustache Shaped Beard

  1. Stubble

    This is a peculiar kind of vegetation, representing an intermediate stage between a beard and a clean-shaven face. Bristles can be two to three days, or weekly. The main thing is to carefully adjust it with a trimmer and shave unnecessary vegetation from the cheeks. Otherwise, instead of a brutal man, others will see in front of them a victim of a weekly binge. For the same reasons, it is worth removing stubble from the neck.
  2. Classic beard
    It usually grows in a month and a half. Hair is neatly trimmed, designer alignment of the edges of the vegetation along the cheeks is not. The length of such vegetation depends on the tastes, preferences of the owner, as well as on the characteristics of his body. If the hair is thin and small, then a long beard will look dulled. If the beard bearer professes Islam, then he will not grow a beard to the waist for religious reasons, even if the structure of the hair allows. The classic beard is common in the culture of almost all peoples. The words "Russian", "Scandinavian", etc. in fact, they call one version of the beard in the national manner. A possible difference in length occurs, rather, due to the structure of the hair of carriers in different regions. Maintaining the beauty of the beard will take more time than serious skill at the barber. Care includes washing, combing and periodically cutting the hair to the desired length. Classics go well with a diamond-shaped or triangular face shape.
  3. French fork

    A variant of a classic beard is a “French fork”. The beard and mustache grow at the initial stage as well as in the previous version, however, the tip of the beard bifurcates, which resembles a double-toothed fork. In the Middle Ages and modern times, France held a leading position in broadcasting fashion for hairstyles, clothes and shoes.
  4. Duck tail

    The next classic is the duck tail. This is also a beard with a mustache, grown according to the classical principle. The tip is given the appearance of the tail of a duck. This hairstyle is popular with many media personalities. Ordinary inhabitants also strive to keep up with fashion trends.
  5. Round

    This is a beard-free version of the beard, easier to care for than the previous ones. The cheek area is shaved and the beard itself is trimmed with a trimmer. This type of vegetation is suitable for owners of persons resembling a circle or oval. It goes well with a business style in clothes, does not irritate a beardless management. A round beard is a great compromise between the desire to stand out and the need to adhere to office rules.


Back to the era of rock and roll will help smooth and well-trimmed whiskers. The style of Elvis Presley became the "progenitor" of this trendy image.

Tanks can be made in various variations.

  • narrow tanks, gradually expanding at the base,
  • wide tanks over 2 cm.

It is not necessary to supplement the image of Elvis with vegetation on the chin. Tanks on a man’s face and without a beard can look great.

Balbo Beard

The name of the beard comes from the name of the first bearer of this "decoration" - Italo Balbo. Among modern famous fans of the style we can distinguish Robert Downey Jr., Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio.

A connecting line between these components is missing. Tanks in this version of the barb are not provided.


A voluminous and wide beady beard is the decoration of a brutal man. She makes the image primitive and unbridled.

Different types of beards can fall under the category of salted “jewelry”.

Beard StylesDescription
Lumberjack (Lumberjack)Well-groomed long, voluminous and thick beard. She hides the chin and face of the man as much as possible.
GaribaldiRectangular bushy beard smoothly turns into tanks. It can be combined with different variations of a magnificent mustache.
VerdiRound bushy beard with a luxurious mustache. It completely covers the lower jaw, hiding any imperfections.
Russian (classical)Russian beard is considered the largest and most voluminous of all types. It covers most of the face: capturing whiskers, smoothly connects to the mustache, goes under the chin and covers part of the neck.
Old DutchA wide square beard covers the entire chin and cheekbones with dense vegetation. Hair length can exceed 20 cm. Mustache for this style is not provided.

Skipper Beard (Chin strap)

Romantic skipper beard is also called "English or captain." In its form, it looks like an elegant horseshoe. The captain's beard is located on the chin, repeating the line of the cheekbones.

The hairline, in the form of a chin strap, not only emphasizes the contour of the face, but also visually tightens it.

Skipper strap can be made in a duet with or without small antennae.

Goatee (chin puff)

The goatee (goat or goat) beard with its shape looks like an inverted horseshoe. The chin puff is concentrated in the center of the chin, descending from the lower lip with a strip of thick hairs.

The chin puff beard can be of different lengths, and can be performed in unusual variations:

  1. Some men grow facial hair for a long time to braid a scythe.
  2. Sometimes they “mix” the style of a goatee with a Spanish woman.
  3. Many men complement the image with long or curved up mustaches.

Goatee is able to "stretch" the face vertically. Therefore, it is perfect for chubby men.


The beard received its name for its resemblance to the shape of a sea anchor. It is performed in two main versions:

  • with a flat or wavy mustache,
  • without antennae.

In one and the other case, the bulk of the hairline focuses on the chin. A thin path of hair can stretch from it to the lower lip and bend around the chin. Beard "Anchor" perfectly complement the image of romantic and mysterious men.

Kinds of beard without a mustache

  1. Dutch

    Lush vegetation on the face, combined with a smoothly shaved line above the lip and under the lower corners of the lips, gives an unusual look to its owner. The fashion for such a face design comes from a new time, from Dutch merchants. The length of the vegetation varies, but, as a rule, is not less than 10 - 15 centimeters. To give shine and smoothness to the hair, balms and oils are used. Wax, used mainly in the formation of a mustache line, is not needed here.
  2. Scottish or "screen"

    It looks like skipper, but the length of the hairline is usually much longer. The bearer of such a hairstyle is depicted on a five-dollar bill. Abraham Lincoln, the sixteenth national leader of the United States, introduced it into government circles. Now most often such a hairstyle in America is worn by representatives of the religious movement of the Amish. Important is the fundamental absence of a mustache, as a symbol of militarism, military aggression, completely unacceptable to the Amish. Hairdressers often call such an option to shave a screen, because it quite successfully disguises many of the appearance flaws.
  3. Island

    A tiny piece of hair remains under the lower lip. Everything else is shaved smoothly. In fact, it is an option for the lazy. The vegetation is small, the hairstyle does not require frequent and thorough trimming and combing. Such a beard turned out to be a good find when creating the image of the villain Sorge in The Fifth Element. The islet looks better on dark hair.
  4. Goatee

    The shape and size of the beard is similar to that of the representative of artiodactyls, from which it is difficult to wait for milk.Simple enough to model, it is successfully grown at home without the help of a hairdresser. To create an image, hair is shaved in the cheeks and above the upper lip, the hairline remains only in the chin area, and also, partially, under the lower lip. Looks good on square or slightly oblong faces, and for owners of pear-shaped or rounded faces it is better to choose a different image.
  5. Goatee

    Another type of beard, akin to Napoleonic Ivan Deykovskaya. The mustache version was the favorite beard of the musketeers who adopted such a fashion to shave from the Spanish giants. In the Middle Ages, the military and trade contacts of France and Spain were close, fashion trends in clothes and hairstyles wandered from one country to another. Unlike the goat, the shape of the beard is round, covering the chin area. Goatee without a mustache is often chosen by men whose lower face hair has a different growth direction or color. A small hairstyle hides these features of the body of a man.
  6. Insect

    When forming such a beard, designer imagination gives the ends of the beard the appearance of insect antennae. A specific image that is not suitable for all representatives of the stronger sex. The image must match the chosen hairstyle.
  7. Tanks

    A more compact version of the sails. The border for shaving runs along the line of the lips. The length of the tanks does not exceed one and a half centimeters. The composition is simple to create, care at home, but the image of the rock and roll king Elvis Presley, who wore such a beard, does not let the hairstyle go by the wayside.
  8. Walrus

    When considering hairstyles for the lower part of the face, one should not forget about the mustache. One interesting option is the walrus style. It is possible to call this hairstyle a beard in the full sense of the word with a big stretch, since it is the chin that remains open. The composition is a magnificent mustache, 1 - 2 centimeters passing over the border of the lip line. Walrus mustache owners should pay attention to their appearance after each meal, since drops of food can remain on their hair and instantly turn the image of a courageous man into a sloppy one.

How to choose the type of beard, with the help of a stylist, a computer program or relying on your own opinion - it is up to the beard carrier to decide. The process of growing vegetation, forming a hairstyle takes a long time, during which a man looks, at best, exotic. It is convenient to grow long hair while on vacation, away from the office dress code. After shaving an elegant composition on your face, you will have to regularly devote enough time to maintain the beard in its normal form. Usually more time is spent on this than just shaving. Be prepared for the fact that regular visits to the hairdresser will be required, it is possible to use cosmetics to give the hair the desired texture, shine.

The fear that when hair is growing on the lower part of the face, baldness sets in - there is little reason for it. The tendency to hair loss is determined at the genetic level, and little depends on the presence of vegetation. A correctly selected beard, beautifully designed, undergoing care will help create the image of a successful man who knows his own worth. Often the growth of beards is aimed at attracting the attention of women. The beautiful half of humanity carefully evaluates the quality and well-groomed hair, therefore only marginal personalities can attract untidy vegetation with traces of food. When choosing a complex hairstyle instead of a smooth shave, weigh the pros and cons.


The brutal Ducktail beard style combines light shabby and sophisticated neatness at the same time. It involves a smooth transition from short hairy vegetation on the upper jaw and cheeks to the maximum length under the chin.

Ducktail requires a dense hairline. If a man cannot boast of voluminous hair on his chin, this image will not suit him.

Hollywood Beard (Brett)

Brett's beard is a modern fashion trend, the roots of which go back to the cinema of the 30s. The actors who played in action movies of tough guys wore the Hollywood beard. Until now, movie stars (Hugh Jackman, George Clooney, and others) prefer such a “face decoration”.

In addition, the Hollywood beard has a number of advantages:

  1. Helps to hide the imperfections of the chin, aligning it.
  2. Brett gives the male face a brutal and strong-willed look.
  3. The beard makes it easy to adjust the appearance. If you shave your hair around the lower jaw, you can get a goatee.

Medium and long

This is almost a beard. On days 4-6, the hairs become less manageable and stiff, but all this is fixable: a trimmer and beard oil will also help you. It is not necessary to lay such a “beard”, the main thing is to even out the growing hairs under the same length every day. We shave our neck - you don’t trim the hair in the Adam's apple and above the lower third of the face, and leaving them, you provide yourself a sloppy look.

You can trim your cheeks and be sure to watch your neck

Classical beard and its varieties

Consider a classic or so-called Hollywood beard. Such a beard will take enough time and a lot of patience. After the “long stubble” stage, you need to go through a couple of weeks of “negligence” and when you realize that the hair has reached the desired length (usually 4-5 weeks), the beard can be leveled and given the very Hollywood shape. The best advice in this case is to contact a barbershop. There you will be taught how to align, how to care and lay facial hair on your face, they will give a shape suitable for your face and take into account all the nuances and wishes. Believe me, it’s not as difficult as it seems, and it's worth it.

Islet (Soul patch)

"Islet" is a stylish alternative to a goatee. Soul patch is located in the hole under the lower lip in the form of a triangle. This beard combines well with a slight unshaven or small mustache.

Soul patch helps create a gallant and charming look.

French fork

What is the difference? - you think. It’s only that the lower part of the beard that has already grown out of you is divided in two: this is what the French fork with two teeth looks like. Care and shaving are the same as for the Classic beard. And by the way, this is a very trendy beard look.

Brad Pitt


The beard of the famous pirate Jack Sparrow from the popular Hollywood movie is able to give a man the appearance of a real conqueror of the water element. A straight mustache in combination with a Spanish woman or goat's beard gives the owner a rebellious spirit.

The sparrow beard can be either short or long.

To give a special charm, the beard can be braided into one or more braids.

Duck tail

It's simple: instead of a flat, rounded beard or two cloves of a fork - one triangular tail like a duck. To understand the styling technology, imagine that you already have a beard of the “French Fork” type, only with morning styling you do not separate the hair in two, but on the contrary, reduce it into one.

    To summarize

    How to understand that a beard will suit you? No way. It is worth trying to grow at least a goatee to look at yourself with facial hair. Then we look at ourselves only with a mustache, whiskers and thus understand exactly how we want to look and what really suits us.

    Also an integral part of wearing a beard is your haircut. Think carefully about your stylish look: you should look harmonious with the beard of your choice and the desired haircut. It is important to find a middle ground. For example, if you prefer simplicity and convenience, a combination of a Three Day Stubble or a Classic Beard and a Crop haircut is perfect for you. If you sincerely like to spend a lot of time with your hair, and throughout the day to monitor the appearance, enjoying your stylish look - Pompadour in combination with Verdi's beard is your choice.

    But do not rush with independent shaving and style selection. For this, there are specially trained people who, at first glance, will be able to offer you a huge number of styles and combinations that suit you individually. We are talking about the OldBoy barbershops in Ryazan - extensive work experience of masters, professional tools and high-quality products for men's hair care, as well as an individual style selection, which is included in the service of cutting or correction of beard and mustache. It is worth visiting the OldBoy barbershop once to experience the art of cutting and shaving, find your own style and plunge into the atmosphere of the wild west.

    What types of beards are popular in our time is described in the video:

    Varieties of mustache

    How to choose the appropriate mustache shape is described in the video:

    No mustache

    If a man prefers not to wear a mustache, then he can choose one of the following haircut options:

    1. Beard Screen (Lincoln). It involves the connection of the temples and runs along the entire chin.
    2. Old Dutchman. It differs in square shape and in that the area above the mouth is as smooth as possible.
    3. Norwegian skipper. It resembles a goatee and has a wide cover in the lower part of the face.

    5. Goatee. It is located on the chin and lengthens slightly towards the end.
    6. Island. Not below the mouth.

    How to choose a beard shape by face type?

    It is extremely important that the beard matches the oval of the face, otherwise, even with perfect performance, it can ruin the whole image.

    The shape is determined taking into account such characteristics:

    • In the oval face, the length is slightly larger than the widest section, the cheekbones are clearly outlined.
    • In a rectangular, the largest measure is the length. The size of the forehead and chin is approximately identical.
    • A round face has identical measures of length and width. His lines are smooth, his chin is unclear.
    • The shape of the square has the same length and width, the forehead is angular, the chin is noticeably outlined.
    • The triangular face has a narrow forehead, the bottom is its widest part.
    • The diamond-shaped length is slightly larger than the width, the top and bottom of the face are narrow.
    • Inverted Triangle. With this type, the width of the oval will be slightly less than its length. The bottom of the face is narrow, but the forehead, on the contrary, is quite wide.

    Reference! To more accurately determine the shape, you can use the ruler.

    Now it is worth considering the features of the selection of a beard for the mentioned species.

    Face shape selection:

    1. Round face. This shape needs a little stretch. Beard fit neatly trimmed, directed towards the cheekbones. A goat or skipper uniform may also be suitable. A good choice is the geometric shape. But whiskers should not be used then.
    2. Oval face. The universal type, which goes to almost everything. Men with this type of face can safely conduct experiments with various forms of beard. However, the shade, density, growth of hairs is also taken into account.
    3. Square face. This type looks very courageous, and the task of the beard is to emphasize this. Full beard is appropriate. Also, the vegetation can be careless, focusing on the bottom of the face. Too long hairs are better not to do.
    4. Narrow elongated face. Here it is important not to stretch the oval even more. You can also pay attention to the full beard, but it is better to complement it with a mustache. Holders of a narrow oval are not recommended to use rounded lines.
    5. Diamond shape. The task is to visually reduce the wide cheekbones. To make the proportions more correct will help the full massive vegetation, as well as the mustache.
    6. Inverted Triangle. Owners of this type should be given the volume of a narrow jaw. Most often, massive beards are used for this, going from one temple to the second. The accent is hair located below the cheekbones. Whiskers are also acceptable. Even more correct proportions can be achieved by shaving the chin area.

    Although a successful beard can be chosen for almost every person, there are a number of men whom she generally does not fit.

    These include the following:

    • If the vegetation is tough, then the beard may look too rough and messy. An alternative then could be stubble.
    • If a fluff grows on your face, it is better not to grow a beard, because its appearance can be simply ridiculous.
    • We must remember that the vegetation needs care, it needs to be cut periodically and corrected. Those who are not ready for this, it is better to abandon such an idea.

    Face shape triangle

    The narrow chin so characteristic of this type should be softened a little. A square or rounded beard, as well as a classic type, will visually expand the lower part of the face, thereby removing the obvious contrast of a narrow chin.

    Round face type

    The round face should be slightly roughened, highlighting the chin. At the time will come a trapezoid or beard from temple to temple. You can also add a neat, medium-sized mustache, which visually helps to lengthen the rounded shape of the face. In addition, a “goatee” is suitable.


    It would be nice to pick a beard for rounding a square shape. In this case, the whiskers and chin will be very helpful. Do not overdo it with the volume, because a too voluminous beard will make the face even wider.

    Rectangular face shape

    This face shape prefers a thicker beard on whiskers, cheeks and a mustache with a shaved chin. A rounded horseshoe beard or regular “tanks” will do. It is worth visually expanding the face.

    And so congratulations. Holders of the oval shape were most lucky. Almost any beard style is suitable for her. So do not turn on fantasy and experiment.

    Often complete, sometimes with shaving hair on the cheeks. With a full beard, only the upper cheeks and mustache are shaved.

    "Wide tanks"

    A style suitable for those who are in awe of long and thick whiskers. The chin always remains clean, and what to do with the mustache (shave or not shave?) Is up to you. It is important that the bottom edge of the tanks clearly follows the bottom line of the chin.


    Starting from the temples, it goes down, bordering the cheekbones to the corners of the mouth, and then bends upward, gradually turning into a mustache. The chin remains clean.

    Thin thin mustache soaring upwards, like that of the well-known artist Salvador Dali.

    All kinds of beards without a mustache

    Without a mustache, numerous forms and types of beards are in no less demand, as there are men who do not wear vegetation at all over their upper lips. The modern names for beards without a mustache are as follows:
