Popular Beard Styles

Sometimes fashion changes faster than we can follow it. Same goes for beard styles. If you have decided to grow a beard, you probably want to have the most stylish one possible. Let’s take at look at popular & trendy beard styles, which are expected to be fashionable in the coming year.

1. Victorian beard – in 1854-1856, during Crimean war, British soldiers had problems with soap supply and that’s why they couldn’t shave on a regular basis. When the soldiers with long and full beards came back from the war, such facial hair became a sign of manliness and honor.
2. Hollywoodian beard – a trendy beard with a mustache. Not more than an inch (2 – 3 cm) long
3. Three day stubble – if your hair is naturally dark, then a stubble might really look great. The hair length shouldn’t exceed 1 mm.
4. Tony Stark – a beard sported by the main character of the popular movie Iron Man
5. VanDyke or Captain Jack – the beard can be oval and the mustache is long and curled
6. Rocker beard – long mustache and long hair on the lower jaw
7. Spartan – a variation of a fill beard with some trimming on the cheeks and the accent on the jaw and chin.
8. Wolverine – a beard worn by the main character of the movie Wolverine
