You go a week without shaving and you have a pretty decent amount of facial hair going on. You aren’t so much enjoying the un-clean looking homeless style, so you decide that you want to do something appropriate with your newly grown facial hair. You don’t want to go entirely clean-shaved, but you also don’t want to look like a gorilla anymore. Depending on how your facial hair grows in, you have many options to choose from in terms of style.
Warning: Not everyone can pull off every facial hair style. Everybody grows facial hair in differently, so make sure that you can safely rock the facial hair style that you choose. The following are a few general types of natural facial hair styles:
The first is the only one that can really pull everything off. This natural style is very full and complete. You have the base of hair and could easily pull off anything from a full beard to a mustache to a chin strap. There is nothing standing in your way, and the playing field for you is wide open.
The next is the type that has plenty of hair around the jaw, chin and neck area, but the upper lip are is lacking. This is the type that would look pathetic if they tried to do a mustache. You would also look pretty silly trying to do some sort of goatee. Your best bet is to stick with some sort of 5 o’clock shadow, sideburns or chinstrap.
Another type is the kind that can’t really grow much hair on the cheeks. You can grow a mustache just fine, but you might have a tough time getting a chin strap to be continuous throughout. If you have this type, you should just try to stick to some sort of goatee.
The last kind is the type that should not grow facial hair whatsoever. For some reason, you didn’t get the beard gene and you could easily count the number of hairs on your face without going into triple digits. Unfortunately, you should just rock the clean-shaved look. If you can’t grow a good base to do something with, then just don’t try. A lot of teenagers are like this and they usually grow out of it. However, some people never do. A lot of the time, people with bad acne scars might have a lot of damaged hair follicles on their face and thus won’t be able to grow very good beards. It’s not your fault and doesn’t mean you are any less of a man, it just means you should always shave so that you don’t look like any less of a man.
If you don’t know which type of facial hair grower you are, stop shaving for a week and see what happens. This is really the best way to help present your options on your facial hair styles.
