Beard Trimming 101: The Modern Man's Guide to Today's Top Styles October 20, 2016

Beard Trimming 101: The Modern Man's Guide to Today's Top Styles, Northeast Jefferson, Colorado

With beards making a comeback, it’s no small secret that 2016 has been privy to beard trimming and mustache trends galore. At Fantastic Sams Cut & Color, men usually stop by for polished hair care or a good trim, and facial hair doesn’t always get the attention it deserves.

If you’re ready for a new look, take advantage of this list of the top three beard trimming styles and advice on how to achieve them:

  • The Balbo: As the most popular trend of 2016, your hairstylist will be more than happy to set you up with The Balbo. This beard/mustache style combo looks great on a narrow chin. First, avoid any shaving until you grow a full bearbeard trimmingd. You’ll also need a carefully-sculpted mustache, so take advantage of your razor for the ultimate shaping. With the help of a stylist, you can highlight your face shape by eliminating sideburns and leaving the mustache, soul patch and distinctive chin area to form the shape of an overturned “T.”
  • The Bandholz: Better known as the “lumberjack look,” the Bandholz beard style requires patience. While your face will appear patchy for a few months, you’ll need to leave those patches untouched until your sideburns, mustache and chin area become one thick network of hair. The cutting and shaping process won’t start until at least half a year later, and you can continue to grow and trim from there as you please. 
  • The Circle Beard: This style occurs when a traditional mustache meets a rounded goatee beard. Maintenance involves significant beard trimming, but it’s a highly-presentable look for men who don’t mind a bit of work.
