Ok so everyone knows that growing a beard isn’t complicated however there are a couple of things you need to think about before you get on with it. When deciding to grow a beard you must also think about other factors – this is what this article is all about.

When growing a beard you want it to compliment you and your face. The most important thing we are going to think about is the size and shape of your head and how to grow a beard with what you've got. We all have different heads with different shapes and sizes. To make best with what you have we’re going to start by choosing a beard to suit your facial shape. We have got a few ideal decisions here:

Long faced man

If you are a man bearing a long face then you might want to consider a beard thats fuller on the sides. This will create the impression of a rounder face because the emphasis is taken away by your beard style. If you had a goatee it would only draw attention to your long face (not that thats an issue men.) The mutton chops would help balance the shape of your face if thats what you want.

Round faced man

Again we are working with similar beliefs as before – if you grow face hair which is longer on the chin, It'll stretch out your face and make a more even impression. So where the Goatee may seem a terrible idea for the longer faced man, its a good selection for you round heads out there. Less prominent on the sides and more about the chin area.

Square face

Same as the round face you can aim to have less on the sides and longer on the chin area. This will give more emphasis on the length of your face. A sensible choice may be an anchor or the duck tail.

Oval face

If you've got the pleasure of bearing an oval shaped face then you are a lucky man. Any beard or tash style will work with you, the world is your oyster! There isn't anything stopping you so you have free reign.

The final thing is to think about is the size of you face. If you have a big face then ensure you have a giant beard and tash to match! You need a full, thick beard with a thick moustache because anything tiny will only make you head look big. If you have a small head, again think tiny – anything big could make you look like a pea head so keep it on a small scale.

These are all only suggestions to consider when choosing your beard style, just ideas to take full advantage of your face and help narrow your decision. Choose any style you want but hopefully this will give you a guide on where to start. Whatever you choose just let it grow!?
