Just because you’re bald doesn’t mean you have to say goodbye to your hair; you can still rock beautiful locks by growing out a beard. If you plan on doing this, you may wonder how you should shave and style your facial hair. To help you choose the right type of beard, here are a few options that often suit bare heads.
Which Beard Styles Suit Bald Men?
1. The Goatee
If you’re looking for subtle facial hair or a classic look, get a goatee confined to the area around the chin. This look has appeared on celebrities like Bruce Willis and Bryan Cranston.
If you have a rounder face, shaving off the mustache while keeping hair on the chin will lengthen your face and give you a more prominent jawline.
2. Full Beard
If you’re hoping to make a statement with your beard, the best choice is simply to grow it out. This creates a contrast between your head and face, adding visual interest.
To complement the sharp look of your head, you’ll need to spend time grooming your beard to keep it just as clean, which means combing and using beard oil. With proper maintenance, you’ll look like Iron Man’s Obadiah Stane (Jeff Bridges).
3. Full With a Chin Strip
The most accurate description of this look would be a trimmed beard with one under-lip vertical strip. This is the beard Ryan Gosling sported for his beloved role in The Notebook.
This beard emphasizes the jawline, rounds the mouth, and leaves enough clear skin under the lips to prevent stuck food when eating. For bald men, this eye-catching look is an excellent way to draw more attention to your best features.
