Beards Are Still Big

Beards continues to be a big trend for men in 2017.  Men are continuing to try growing a beard to see if it fits their style. The winter months are especially good months to grow a beard as it helps to keep a man’s face warm, but there are certain tips that men should follow when growing a beard. The important thing to remember is that if you want to grow a beard, you need to commit to doing so. It could take a good 6-8 weeks to fully grow a beard (depending on how fast a man’s facial hair grows). If a man wants a longer beard, it will take a longer time to get to the proper beard length. To keep the beard looking good, it is vital to keep them properly groomed and trimmed.

What about the Moustache?

What is about the moustache that it still continues to be popular as part of a beard or on its own? A proper moustache look needs to be paired with a great haircut to achieve a man’s certain look. Moustaches are very distinct and there are some top styles that continue to be popular for 2017. They require the same grooming as a moustache. A messy overgrown moustache will just not do. Some of the popular moustache looks include the following:

The Horseshoe: This type of moustache stretches across the upper lip and reaches down either side of the mouth to the chin. Its shape is similar to a horseshoe.

Moustache Meets Beard:  This style goes along with growing a beard, but the moustache is longer and grows over to the beard. Longer moustaches and beard give the man a more “lumberjack” look.

Full-Length Moustaches: Since facial hair continues to be a popular look, men are growing out their moustaches to run the length of their mouth and longer. These styles still need to be tidy and groomed.

Trimmed Moustaches: Men can grow their moustaches, but keep it thin and trimmed, but not overbearing and full. The edges of the facial hair are kept neat and clean. The style works with a beard or without one.

Keep it Groomed

When growing facial hair, it is very important to keep it properly groomed. Trimming helps to maintain the type of beard you have decided to grown as well as help it grown in the right shape. Have a professional trim and shape the beard the way that you want it with scissors or clippers. Men’s Cuts offers beard and moustache trimming and shaping.  Consult with your stylist for the beard and moustache look for you. Men’s Cuts is looking forward to judging the ever-popular beard at Lakewood Alive’s Lumberjack Bash!
