Your beard largely determines your appearance and expresses your personalityAre you hip, trendy or individualistic, but also: How exactly do you take care? For this year we took a closer look at the top trends in facial hair and are happy to welcome an almost forgotten style again!
Classic beard trend for life: the full beard
The full beard is an immortal trend and an annual beard trend for agesAlmost every guy in the Bible wore it and later many other personalities - from Charles Darwin to Abraham Lincoln to Hugh Jackman.
The unbeatable advantage of the full beard is that it conceals chubby cheeks and double chin and simply suits everyone who has the appropriate beard growth.
Whether you call him facial flocati or facial mattress, Rauschebart or (inspired by ZZ Top) ZZ full beard: the healthy full beard does not follow the principle of "just let it grow" - at least if it should look good and presentable.
A beautiful and bearable full beard needs careThis includes combing it regularly, trimming it and maintaining it with beard oilAnd that requires at least patience and practice, but also a little willingness to suffer, because pinching and tugging from a few millimeters of beard length is not for every man.
Anyone who takes up the challenge and takes the tips for beard care into account here will receive plenty of recognition for his magnificent specimen of full beard in 2020.
Honest, masculine, casual: the 6-day beard
The name suggests it: the 6-day beard is a perfect compromise between a 3-day beard and a full beard.
He is longer and fuller than his beard brother, who is three days younger, but also needs a little more attention in the bathroom : You have to trim the 6-day beard regularly to keep it about 1 cm longYou will also need to take care of it with beard oil so that it feels good, does not pinch or, at worst, looks unclean.
The 6-day beard is the next evolutionary step after the 3-day beard, but less vain than the full beardIn short: a very honest, casual and cool style.
Especially for men with very hard facial features, the 6-day beard is an exciting experiment for this year to create softer contours on the faceThe beard care also makes it suitable for the business look.
For real individualists: the mustache
It does not have to be the thick upper lip bar as with Tom Selleck or Magnum: This year the mustache will show which men have the courage to stand out from the crowd.
If you let a mustache stand, the main thing is that the length difference of your whiskers is appropriateThis means that you only slightly trim the area above the lip, while being more courageous in the rest of the face.
This gives you some leeway when it comes to the mustache: the more your upper lip mustache stands out from the rest of the beard, the more it comes into its own.
So the question is, what do you combine your mustache with?If you wear it with a 3- or 6-day or full beard, it can be a small, exciting understatementDo you combine it with a goatee or the shaved look (seebelow), you give him presence, makes him look impressive (long mustache) or also playful young (short mustache).
Due to the diverse combination options, the upper lip beard remains with us for a very, very long time as a hyper-individual beard style that hardly anyone else has.
One thing: If your mustache looks disheveled and uncomfortable, it's because you just let it grow in front of youThe best remedies are beard scissors, a beard comb and last but not least a nourishing beard oil, which you use regularlyHow to get your whiskers in shape.
