Beside the Moustache, this one is without doubt the king of beards. Voluminous, wild and mysterious, this beard gives the man an aura of a modern Jumberlack or hunter. It makes a real man out of everyone, but not everyone can grow one.
Named after the French King Heinrich IV, this beard style is also know as the „Goatee“ that grows round about the mouth, which perfectly describes his characteristics. He is soft, sexy, romantic and gives his owner a masculine erotic but also a smart touch at the same time. Guys with round shaped faces should opt for other beard styles, because this one will underline the round face.
This is for sure the absolute classic beard style! Over the ages, hundreds of variations developed, inspired by the endless creativity oft the owners. Doesn’t matter if long or short, trimmed or twisted – there’s a taste for everyone.
In history, this beard was worn by big heroes like Kaiser Wilhelm. Nowadays, rockstars like Lemmy from Motörhead, but also movie heros like Hugh Jackman aka Wolverine made it popular again and we see it more and more. Just shave the chin and let the rest grow. Whiskers have a wild and strong image, so it’s most likely not the right style for everyone. But be sure to serve some eye candy with it!
This beard style focuses on the face lineaments and accentuates its shape. A fine stripe of beard at both sides belong the cheeks and above the chin fades into the head hair. It’s important to trim this beard frequently, to keep it well groomed.
