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.

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.
