Best Beard Trends: A Man’s Beard is a Force to be Reckoned With

A man’s beard is a force to be reckoned with. Our Kelowna barbers and hair stylists at Plan B Headquarters have noticed the growing popularity in beards and we’d be lying if we said we didn’t love the trend or that we weren’t impressed by a well-groomed beard.

Facial hair and facial hair styles can change the shape of a man’s face, so growing a beard that complements your face and features is important. We’ve compiled a list of great beard styles for men so you or your man can grow a mighty beard.

  • Stubble Beard
  • Classic Beard
  • Short Beard
  • Full Beard

Stubble Beard

If you’re not committed to growing a full beard or investing the time, care and purchasing the products a fuller beard requires, then stubble is the perfect balance.

Stubble is the perfect balance between clean-shaven and a short beard. When you book your regular haircut with one of Plan B’s barbers, we can perfect your stubble with a beard trimmer. It’s a relatively easy look to achieve and requires minimal upkeep between cuts. At home, using a decent beard trimmer set to a low grade will ensure it remains clean and doesn’t grow into the unkept caveman realm.

It’s practical in length and stylishly rugged. If you can’t grow a beard without it becoming patchy, this is the ideal look for you. Depending on your facial hair growth and preference, the perfect stubble can take anywhere from a few days to a couple of weeks to grow.

Classic Beard

We recommend the classic beard to anyone that’s committed to facial hair. This not too long, not too short with thick coverage beard is a great look.

As with any longer beard, beard oil and regular beard trims are key to its success.

Pair your classic beard with a clean haircut for a classically handsome look, or go for a vintage look with a side part and stronghold pomade.

Short Beard

During the hot summer months, a short beard is ideal for staying cool in the sun. It also might be a better alternative to a full beard in certain professions or workplaces or for anyone that cannot grow a full beard.

For many men, it’s the perfect way to try something new, while still maintaining rugged, masculine facial hair.

Although the maintenance is low, we recommend that you invest in beard care products to ensure your beard remains polished rather than patchy.

Full Beard

The full beard is distinct and when properly groomed, it’s a damn fine look. A full beard is a force to be reckoned with, but it’s a gradual process to perfect a longer beard. Longer beards can be challenging, and there are different beard shapes that will work for different face shapes. Keep a good shape and avoid a scraggly uneven caveman mess by following these tips outlined in How to Maintain Your Big, Bushy Beard.

Patience and mindfulness of your grooming are key elements to achieving #beardgoals. You want to ensure that your hair is styled and your haircut complements a full beard so you don’t end up looking unkempt.

Our barbers at Plan B Headquarters can help you get the best haircut for your look and keep your beard well groomed and trimmed. Beard oil is essential for this style as it stops irritation and dryness, while also making your facial hair more manageable and groomed.
