Bart Styles: Mit diesen Trends sind Männer aktuell unterwegs

Bart Styles: Men are currently on the move with these trends

Every man comes to the point where he feels like change. And that has nothing to do with midlife crises, it is simply a desire for life. No wonder that things also change a bit when it comes to facial hair: We look at the current trends in beards and tell you which one might suit you.  

3rd place for the full beard, the undefeated beard trend

This trend really has a long beard - in two ways - because the full beard has not just been announced this year. Once the hip men wore it, it has been socially acceptable for a while now.  

And still applies: You do nothing wrong with a full beard.

Good reasons for the full beard: it conceals chubby cheeks, gives a face length and just looks masculine. You also impress with your persistence: Breeding a magnificent full beard is no child's play. You need to have a lot of patience for the right length and a good beard oil and develop an adequate routine for your beard care .  

If your beard growth allows it, the variations of the full beard are particularly exciting. This year the ZZ full beard (based on ZZ Top) tops the beard charts, while in the previous years wild style versions and the shorter version of the full beard also went well.  

2nd place this year (and next year) for the mustache

The mustache is a particularly interesting variant of wearing a beard: Hardly any beard is so extravagant and at the same time so traditional. It was trendy decades ago and always celebrated a small renaissance. Men with mustaches stand out, act like connoisseurs - and have invested a lot of time in care:  

It takes six to eight months for most men for the mustache to reach an acceptable length. When breeding this beard it is important to let it grow (not cut!) And to twist the whiskers into shape. You will also need beard oil for suppleness and a special comb for your mustache. Professionals combine the mustache with the full beard and thus harmoniously combine two beard trends.  

The effort behind the mustache is particularly worthwhile for individualists: not many men have the patience for this beautiful beard shape and do not always have the courage to make a neat statement with it. But that is exactly what makes the mustache so appealing and will keep it on trend in 2020.  

1st place for the casual, smart 3-day beard  

It may not have turned out, but looks damn good for every man: the 3-day beard is suitable for all types and all situations. It is easy to maintain, grows in a short time, makes the face robust, is undeniably casual and does not need enormous beard growth. Perfect style!  

When taking care of your 3-day beard, you should make sure that you regularly shape it with a trimmer and do not let it become a full beard. Because without care it looks washed out relatively quickly. You are well equipped with a dry razor to 2 to 3 millimeters and occasionally a bit of beard oil. Of course, you can also start fresh and shave wet at the start. Here we recommend a clean shave with a safety razor .  

A well-groomed beard is half the battle  

What all beard trends have in common: They require at least a little care. When you see the result, you will be clear that it was worth it.  

Have fun with your beard and #staysober
