16. The Split Beard

Allow your beard to grow in thick and full, then when it starts to extend past the chin, you can split it in two.
This is a killer beard style that has become all the rage with Jack Sparrow and each release of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies.
This beard appeals to many guys who want to give the appearance of being wild and spontaneous, yet cool and collected at the same time.

17. Mid-Range Stubble

Just before the facial hair reaches a certain growth point, most likely in 4 – 7 days, you trim it and it looks like stubble.
The key here is that you are not going for the five o’clock shadow look that only takes a day to achieve, you want the facial hair to grow to the point it almost begins to resemble a beard but not quite.

A stubble beard does take some skill and dedication to master, but the benefits far outweigh all the efforts.
This classic look is irresistible to anyone within arm’s length, and even a 1/2 inch of growth will suffice.
Be careful because if you miss the mark, you go from elegant celebrity to drunken hobo in a flash.

18. Ducktail Beard

This is not your typical neck beard here, it is one of those beard styles that has exploded in popularity in recent years.
Look at James Harden on the basketball court, how his duck tail beard commands attention in an arena of 50,000 screaming fans.
The key to the duck tail beard is allowing the chin hair to grow out as far as you can so that it resembles the tail of a duck, then shape it any way you like.
Looks great with a tee-shirt and jeans or a business suit and sunglasses.

19. The Garibaldi Beard

This might appear on the surface to be nothing more than a completely out of control chin strap combined with a neck beard.
To pull this beard style off it does take a layer of commitment that mortal men can not handle.
This beard requires you to grow out the facial hair long below the chin in the shape of the letter “U”. The closer you can get to the “U” shape, the better the overall look.

20. The Mini Goatee

If you are serious about growing facial hair but the work environment puts a serious hurt on your ability to express yourself, then you might want to go with the mini goatee to start.

This is about as small as you could go with the facial hair.
It is nothing more than a little strip of hair under the nose and some near the chin. Some guys just go with the tiny patch under the chin and leave it at that.
Go small, and see how far you can push the limits without being asked to grab that razor.Content courtesy of Beardoholic & Nairobi Fashion Hub
