Keep an eye out for these popular styles. Are You Wearing One?
First, there are many trendy styles that look awesome. For instance, styles like the Garibaldi and the Bandholz (a Garibaldi with longer moustache) can help you stand out from the crowd.
However, most guys can’t sport the trendier styles for various reasons, often related to traditional sociocultural career expectations. Whether you’re expected to attend a board meeting or a surfboard, these most popular beard styles of 2019 are worn by some of the most influential men around.
Designer Stubble – The #1 Most Popular Beard Style
There must be something compelling about having just enough of the wiley whiskers to make an impact. While designer stubble is a seemingly simple beard to grow, don’t underestimate its ability to give you that distinguished yet badass look.
One of the best things about this style, and likely the reason it’s so popular, is that it complements nearly any hairstyle you can think of.
From top-knots to detailed fades, when you’re sporting designer stubble you can be sure you are going to make a stylistic impact.
The Full Goatee – #1 Runner-Up Most Popular Beard Style
The full goatee seems to stay in the top five beard styles every single year. There is something endearing about the way a well-groomed full goatee looks on the right face.
It carries a certain timeless and unassuming classiness that can be worn with nearly any hairstyle, and in nearly any environment.
Whether you have an edge for adventure finding yourself in the misty morning wilds of the backcountry, or your only adventure is skillfully avoiding traffic on the way to the office, the full goatee will serve you well.
The Short-Boxed Beard - #2 Runner-Up Most Popular Beard Style
The short-boxed beard is a corporate favourite. It’s a bit more refined than the designer stubble giving you a purposeful look. It grows between one to two inches in length and is well-kept, with almost obsessive detail.
Keeping the short boxed beard looking so great can be a chore. However, your gains are worth the effort. Get some quality grooming tools and some beard oil to really make sure you get the most of this ubersexual beard style.
