Beard profiling as a topic is a vast and voluminous one, which obviously can’t be discussed extensively using just an article. Hence, the need to take things in sequences; herein this content, we would be profiling the different types of beard.
In other words, together with you, I would in details, state the individual characteristics of the various types of beard.
Types of beard
From the type of beard a man keeps, you can tell with more than 60% accuracy, about such a person. The beauty, or rather, nice thing about the beard type is, not everybody can grow all the types of beard types. How do I mean? It is not usually possible for a single person to keep all kinds of beards. All thanks to the restrain some face in growing full beards.
With a full beard, you are good to go to try any type of beard you find suitable for you. It is as simple as just retouching your chin with a razor, and see yourself with just another type of beard.

1. The Hollywoodian Beard
Culled from its popularity amongst the stars of the Hollywood movie, “Golden Era,” the Hollywoodian beard is a type of beard that bestows a leading manly look on your face, which is achieved via the impression of a strong and chiseled jawline is causes your face to wear.
The Hollywoodian beard is a well-trimmed type of beard which is best appropriate in most situations in which you need to appear professional. Summarily, this type of beard consists of a mustache which is connected expressly to a goatee that thereafter extends up to the jawline, before disconnecting from the sideburn.
Okay, this is becoming confusing, so let’s tread slowly;
The basic idea behind the Hollywoodian beard is a mustache and a chinstrap (hair on the chin), which connects. However, there are no sideburns, hence, the beard balances detached on the chin, proceeding to fade out naturally as it approaches the ear and head hairline.
After the basics, the rest is up to you – depending on how you feel like styling it. You can decide to trim it low on your face towards the jawline
To maintain this type of beard is quite easy and simple – non-tasking at all. You simply need to keep the sideburns from the first to the second ear cleanly shaved. Use a razor to clean up any hair facing the neck outwardly.
This can, however, be done quicker, faster, and more efficiently through the use of a beard trimmer. With the beard trimmer, you should carefully cut every stray hair found on the upper cheekbone, in other to create a clean and lined-up look. Trust me, you don’t really need a barber to maintain this type of beard.
With the Hollywoodian beard, you are good to go for official duties, social events, and even in red carpet occasions.
2. Full Beard
This is touted as the king type of beards. As a style, the full beard is a straight, no-nonsense type of beard that gives its wearer the same kind of expression.
The point of keeping this kind of beard is the liberty from shaving it bestows upon its wearer. Should you want to wear this type of beard, then you should bear at the back of your mind that you are henceforth free from consistent shaving.
This is the type of beard that gives you the highest level of manliness you can ever desire. And mind you, that you aren’t shaving often doesn’t mean you are permitted to go dirty when wearing this beard style. No. with a few beard care products, you are good to go, clean, and well represented with your full beard.
The interesting thing with this type of beard is that it suits just every face, no matter the type of shape or personality the face has.
And, it is so easy to keep! I mean, all you’ve got to do is leaving it to grow all out. Just leave it to grow. The more it grows, the more beautifying it becomes.
The hair grows all over your face, including the cheeks and necks, and can appear in both short and long forms. The thing is, this type of beard offers you limitless styling and shaping options.
To maintain the full beard, firstly, you need to let it grow; just grow it. Albeit, ensure you maintain an appropriate neckline – any hair found below the confluence point of your head and neck needs to be shaved.
However, you need to be very careful so as not to shave your neckline too high; you need to only shave it up to the corners of your head and neck – as simple as that.
To achieve this easier, you can make use of beard trimmers– it helps especially to cut off unruly and/or wild cheek hairs.
The full beard type is good for classrooms, gyms, breweries, and musical occasions.
Can we conveniently say that the stubble type of beard is the opposite (not direct opposite though) of the full beard type? Well, yes, we can!
The stubble is a type of beard which helps in hiding patchy growths, and as well gives the face of its wearer a rugged edge cum double impression of having a strong jawline but still not being overly emphasized.
To achieve this beard type, well, we can as well say it is as simple as not shaving, just like the full beard’s. however, there is a better less subtle way to achieving the stubble;
Shape-up the cheekbones at the lips area and the area just below the jawline – this brings the really sharp and masculine look.
To maintain, it is same as the full beard. the thing is, even if it is shorter and less full, the stubble is still a beard. this means it will experience the same drying effect on the face as that of fuller beards. Wherefore you need to make use of a beard oil and beard moisturizer often, in other to rock the style better.
Just like the full beard, the stubble is also good for classes, official events, music occasions, and all.
4. Bandholz Beard
Also known as the Hipster Beard, Bandholz is as a type of beard, is a leader. I mean, it is more like the most talked about amongst all type of beard.
Running down the lane of history, Bandholz was coined by an entrepreneur, who without delay turned it into the face of the brand, and since then, has turned it into the face of a successful business.
The main idea behind Hipster is, you need to make it grow freely. However, unlike the full beard, you need to checkmate the growth width frequently in other to achieve the shape perfectly.
To maintain this type of beard requires huge sacrifices – truth be told, you need to put in a whole lot of care on the beard. the interesting thing however is, the amount of care you invest in this beard type depends on the way you style it. But, the best and ideal way to style this type of beard is keeping a proper neckline and also keeping the upper cheeks clean – the ideal length for this type is also about four to five inches.
Make do with the Bandholz beard on at small business meetings, auto shops, lecture theatres, etc.
Apply comb on the beard regularly, dry the beard, and also apply lavishly, the best kinds of beard care products. Most especially, you need the beard oil, beard moisturizer, beard comb, beard shampoo, and beard cream to enjoy the most from this type of beard.
5. Ducktail Beard
The Ducktail Beard type is quite similar to the full beard, just that it is a little cropped; instead of just leaving your facial hair to keep growing, wild, untamed, and all, the ducktail beard type lets you employ a rather refined approach. Hence the difference.
Another thing is, this type of bead is usually fuller than the regular beard. shaping it, in other to get the perfect shape, you need to do so in a way that the beard looks as if it is converging downwards to the middle. The upper section of your beard, with the ducktail, is always lower part can be grown to any length you desire as the owner of the beard.
To maintain this type of beard, you firstly need to let it grow fully, before proceeding to trim the top of the beard. Not just the top actually, but the top-up to the point where the facial hairs still cling to the sides of your face, you get that, right?
You gotta keep cleaning downwards carefully until you reach the bottom. However, as I said, this has to be done with lotta caution (which would definitely come easier upon practice), as the bottom center of the beard after shaving and/or trimming, must be the longest part of the beard.
This shape is what gives it the name “ducktail.” Do you get that?
To suit, you can as well keep long chin hairs to serve as great centerpieces.
The Ducktail beard would best go for both business and casual occasions, sales floors, artisans’ workshops, etc.
Other types of beard which we would not be actually beard profiling are:
- The short-boxed beard
- Soul patched beard
- The Rap industry-standard beard
- The Balbo Beard
- Mutton Chops Beard
- The Yeard Beard
