Beard News 2020

You want to grow a beard or try a different shape? Which styles are trendy now, which beard hairstyle suits which man and how the trendy beards affect women.


Which beard styles are trendy in 2020? Wilson Kamau, hairdresser and beard expert from Nairobi knows: “Beard remains trend! First of all the well-groomed 5-day beard. Also in vogue again, even with younger men: a moustache à la Johnny Depp.”

So the hipster full beard is out again?

“No, he stays! But regardless of trends, it is much more important that the beard matches the individual beard growth. In other words, if you have sparse hair growth, it is better to wear a three-day beard than an irregular full beard,”; say Wilson.

Which beard do women like best?

“The three-day beard is still ahead. Studies show that women love the combination of soft skin and slightly tickling whiskers when kissing,”; says the Expert from Nairobi.

To prevent the beard from pricking, it must be cared for appropriately. How’s that work? A beard can be cared for and styled in the same way as the hairstyle. Bearded hair, however, needs other care products so that it does not become brittle and frizzy.

The basic equipment includes a beard soap for daily cleaning and beard oil for the care of beard hair and skin. How do I grow my beard? “Every bearded person will know that the first phase of growing is not so easy – the beard itches, the skin gets dry and with increasing length the beard hairs become wilder. Often the reason why the beard is shaved off again. All these unpleasant side effects can be prevented with the right beard care. You look and feel better,”; according to Wilson.

THE BEST BEARD STYLES FOR YOUR FACE SHAPE

Most people grow their beards freely without considering some factors such as their face shape. What most people don’t know is that the beard style that works for someone else may not work for you. The same way that certain hairstyles complement some face shapes more than others means that not every hairstyle shall favour you.

Beard styles are different for every face shape.

Here are examples of face shapes and their beard styles.  

Oblong/Rectangular Face shape:  

This is when you have a long face, with wide jawbones that are above your mouth, and a deep square chin.  

Best beard styles:  

Go for a beard style that makes you’re your face appear full and one that gives it some width.  

Oblong Face Shape

Oval Face shape:  

If you have the oval face shape you are among the lucky ones when it comes to beard growth, because it is the ideal face shape, you can get away with most beard styles. Your cheekbones are slightly wider than your jawbones, and your jawline is rounded.

Best beard styles:  

Oval faces can suit very many beard styles. Go for beards that are short on the edges with clean lines on the cheeks and one that is squared at the jaw.  

Oval Face Shape

Round Face shape:  

If you have a wide jawline, wide cheekbones, and a short chin then you have a round face.  

Best beard style:  

In this case try a beard style that is longer on the chin. This puts emphasis on your chin and one that is shorter on the cheeks. Avoid the thick and long beards since they will only make your face look rounder.  

Round Face Shape

Square Face shape:  

This face shape many men would wish to have. It features a strong square jaw.  

Best beard style:  
Square Face Shape

You do not want a beard that exaggerates your strong jaw line. Go for a beard with sharp right angles and one that rounds out your chin area with a narrower softer beard or one without sideburns.


Diamond Face shape:  

This face shape features a narrow forehead and jawline that are almost symmetrical with cheekbones at the widest point of your face.

Best beard style:  

Go for styles that add width to your chin so as to offset the cheekbones. Go a little wider on the cheeks and wider on the sides of your face or the edges.

Diamond Face Shape

Triangle Face shape:  

This face shape includes a flat chin, and your jawline which is larger than your forehead.  

Best beard style:  

Choose a beard style with volume, one that places your hair higher up on your face this helps to draw attention away from your chin. Since your jawline is large, try to avoid hair on your cheeks and keep hair short on the chin.  

Triangle Face Shape

Heart Face shape:  

The heart face shape features a broad forehead larger than the cheekbones and jawline. A pointed chin.  

Best beard style:  

Go for thick or bulky and long beard so that you can gain fullness on the lower part of the head.

GROWING A BEARD

Growing a beard may seem to be such an easy task but it requires commitment. Just like you take care of your hair or nails, the same thing applies to growing a beard. You don’t want to be walking around the streets looking like a mad professor because of your unkempt and shaggy beards. Your beard is the first thing that any person you meet will see. No matter when and where, with the KAMILI KUMI BLACK CORAL KIT we will cover your efforts. 

From the time you leave your house ‘till the moment you go to bed, we have your back.  

From “your beard stings” to the never ending “let me touch it again please” requests; within one application of our well formulated beard oil you will notice the difference. In fact, you will have a hard time to keep these hands off of you. So even if you doubted it up to this point, you have to agree with this KAMILI KUMI fact : grooming and cultivating them your beard is worth the effort.  

Here are some of our very personal beard care tips.

Only Genuine alpha males were consulted for this exercise.  

Fight through the itch. It gets better after some time.  

It’s your first step on your journey. Keep your chin up, it’s worth it!  

Let your beard grow without disturbance.  

Some of you will go ahead and try shaping your beard at an early time of growth, give it a few months before trying for it to grow. Keep maintaining your beard. Especially the outer limits. Get familiar with the comb, the brush and most of all with the scissors. Because you don’t want to f*ck up your beard when it’s once established.  

Know when to give up on beard growth.  

There! We’ve said it. If it’s been three or four months of trying to grow a beard and you can’t see any improvement, then it’s wise to just let go and move on because not everyone can grow a beard. Sometimes it’s a matter of genetics. Don’t worry, maybe skinny jeans and a V-neck shirt suits you better after all. 

Shampoo.  

Kenyan men and your ndevus. PSA. We all know that one person that doesn’t pay close attention to their ndevu or if they do, they will just use the normal bar soap that they use to shower on their beard. Just like you shampoo your hair while washing it to avoid it being dry, same thing applies to your beard. Shampoo it a few times a week and take care of it. The beard shampoo in the BLACK CORAL KIT will clean your man fur and every skin pore that breaths life unto those manyweles.  

Apply oils.  

Use the beard oil often but in small quantities to keep it moisturized. Massage the oil into your beard and skin, or even better, ask your lady to do it. She will love it even more than you would. And believe me when I say here, it pays off in various occasions to let her get so close to your man fur!  

Trim your beard.  

Just like you trim your hair after a few weeks or a month, don’t forget to trim your beard evenly and keep it neat all the time. You don’t want your beard to become the untamed mane unless you have a whole pack of lionesses to keep up with it.  

Use the right tools.  

We at KAMILI KUMI recommend using scissors and a comb. Especially those of you who are new to the beard game will find great pleasure in it. They prevent you from cutting off too much of your hair unlike when using an electric trimmer. That is why we have it as one of our key essentials in our starter kit: The BLACK CORAL, a comb, a brush and a small enough scissor to start with. However, an electric trimmer is used when shaping the edge of your beard, so invest in one if you can. Keep in mind, your beard is kind of your business card. Don’t have dog-ears on it!  

Eat a healthy diet.  

Consuming a balanced and healthy diet is good for you and of course for your hair growth and skin glow. And who does not want to have that special glow? If you plan on using any supplements, make sure to consult a doctor before. Some of those supplements could be harmful to your body.  

Sleep.  

Getting enough sleep enhances your growth. This also applies to your beard growth. If you want a healthy and full beard, make sure to get enough sleep.  

Be careful while eating.  

This may seem so obvious, but most people don’t consider their beard while eating. We are Alpha Males, but we don’t have to eat like wildlings. Always make sure to keep your food off your beard and wipe off any food remains that may fall on your beards without you noticing.  

Lastly be very careful on the products that you use on your beard because they go straight into your skin. Our KAMILI KUMI formula is tested on us, and we can only give our recommendation to try it for yourself and your mane.

We are sure you will love it as much as we and our ladies do.
