Remember, facial shapes can be categorised into rectangle or oblong, round, triangular and pear. Each shape differs and hence, bear styles are also varied. For example, those with pear-shaped faces will look best in long sideburns and a beard that will provide coverage.

Men with pointed chins or triangular faces need to grow medium-sized beards to add weight to the chin and jawline. Square-faced men need to give the illusion their faces look less like a box and thinner. Hence, growing a light beard all over the face will look best for this face shape.

Round faces should be treated with a different type of beard. It is important that the beard should not diminish small features. Hence, sideburns should be avoided.

Once the length of the beard is ok, visit a barber who will trim it out for you. The circle beard features a moustache that traces along the mouth sides and meets the hair on the chin.

Other styles that can work include a full beard to cover the entire jawline and hide flaws (weak chin). A longer beard could also lengthen the look of the face. You can also grow a goatee or a triangular shaped goatee.
