Unfortunately, all faces are not made equal. Some beard styles just don’t mesh well with certain faces shapes. It is a huge conundrum. Your beard will not match the shape of your face all by itself without a little help, but luckily, we are here to help you with that. But first, let us look at one important aspect of having a beard: trimming!

The Importance of Trimming Your Beard

With great beard comes great responsibility! Beards grow fast and uneven you will soon be looking like an unkempt caveman. That is why trimming is a must. Your beard will only make you look good if it’s healthy.

Let’s look at a few reasons why you might want to trim your beard:

Keeps the Stray Hair in Check – Nothing is more important to the bearded look than getting rid of stray hairs. When it comes to beard-scaping, this is one of the easiest things you can do. You can’t call yourself a bearded stud if you can’t keep it in line when a few stray hairs pop out. It is just a sign that you weren’t ready to handle the huge responsibility of the beard.

Helps you achieve Beard Fullness – Think like a gardener who wants to make his hedge look thicker and fuller. Any good gardener knows that to achieve this the hedge needs to lose the strays and its surface needs to be evened out.


Makes Beard Look Healthier – By trimming, you get rid of dry hair, damaged hair, split ends and lifeless hair, allowing the healthier hair to take center stage and make your beard look extremely good.

Fewer Knots and Tangles – Trimming it is one of the best ways to keep your hair in check. Don’t forget to pick a good beard oil and brush or comb your beard every morning and in between trims.

Beard Catches Less Food Debris

Now that you know why you should trim your beard, let’s look at face shapes.

 Oval Face “Egg-shaped” with a pointy chin and rounded cheeks.
 Long Face – Small width but larger length.
 Round Face – Has a circular shape with both the chin and head having a consistent length.
 Heart Face – Looks like the round face with a wider forehead and chin than cheekbone.
 Square Face – Has a consistent length on all sides, with a broad forehead and chin.
 Diamond Face – Has a narrow forehead and chin, sharp bones and wide cheeks.
