2018 is the year of the beard - but what style should you go for?

Beards are more popular than ever. You can't walk down the street without seeing someone rock the facial rug with tapered fade or razor lineup. There are so many styles to choose from and men's fashion is the same as any other. Every year a new trend ousts the last year's ones, but you don't want to look like you just stopped shaving. Here are the top beard styles of this year, so get your fibre pomade and see which one will get you looking your best. 

Medium stubble

This classic look will make a guy look rugged without him having to wait weeks to sprout a full beard. It's ideal for gents with younger looking faces who want to give themselves a more mature look. This might seem like an easy style choice due to the fact a prospective beard-wanter won't have to commit so much time to growth. However, to make stubble look good and not messy you have to keep it well maintained. The Chrome Cordless Mega Taper Hair Clipper 3000S (https://www.beautyhair.co.uk/collections/vines-vintage-hair-styling-and-grooming-products-for-men/products/aphrodite-mega-taper-3000-professional-hair-clipper-silver-edition?variant=44429807500) is perfect for keeping stubble in order.


Sported by rebels, rock stars and pirates, the iconic goatee is coming back in a big way. They're great for those who struggle to grow a good looking full beard. They require precise management and a good eye. You need to know exactly where to trim them. The rule of thumb is the end of your jawline is where your goatee should also end. Splash on a little Vines Vintage Beard Oil (https://www.beautyhair.co.uk/collections/vines-vintage-hair-styling-and-grooming-products-for-men/products/vines-vintage-beard-oil-100ml?variant=42373005580) to keep it looking and feeling great.


This revolutionary style emphasises the 'stache' over the beard. Ideally you should maintain your beard to a low length while growing our out your upper lip till you look like a 70's porn star. This is great look for anyone whose moustache grows thicker than their beard naturally. Vines Vintage Maxi Gum (https://www.beautyhair.co.uk/collections/vines-vintage-hair-styling-and-grooming-products-for-men/products/vines-vintage-maxi-gum-125ml?variant=42372785420) should be used to keep you looking like an untameable cowboy. 

The Short Beard

The easiest way to attain this look is to grow out a full beard then trim it down to your desired length. This classic never goes out of style.
