French beards are trending in a big way this year. Although they’ve been popular in France for many centuries, they are becoming increasingly popular at the moment due to the amazing way they can transform your overall look and the fact that they are low maintenance.
French Beards are also incredibly versatile and you can try many different hairstyles with them. At the end of the day, it is all down to your personal preference and style!
We recommend choosing a style that enhances your natural features and also one that you feel comfortable wearing.
There is a lot of debate around what the best French beard style is but, at the Well Groomed Gentleman Barbershop, we believe that the best style is one that suits the individual and not society. Why not take a look at the below styles and let us know which one you like the best?
The Full French Beard with a Thin Mustache.
Looking for a strong, masculine style that will accentuate the contours of your chin? This full French beard helps to elongate the shape of your face, while the thin beard gives a great contrast. Pair it with a full head of hair or shave your head as pictured- it’s entirely up to you!
The Wild One.
Most guys with long hair love low-maintenance upkeep and prefer facial hair that doesn’t require a lot of work. This particular style is great for those who don’t have much time for grooming but still want a boyish and cheeky look. All you need is a trim every now and then and you are good to go!
Compact and Long French Beard.
Having long facial hair all over your face can sometimes look intimidating and feel a bit messy. If you still want to keep your long and full beard and mustache, consider having it shaped into this compact style which gives you the best of both worlds. It looks great with a haircut that is short on the sides and a little bit longer in the front.
The Soul Patch.
For the guy who likes a bit of creativity and departure from the norm, this style is perfect! The soul patch on the chin gives you just enough of a bohemian look and the carefully cultivated mustache and beard looks neat and tidy.
The Compact French Beard.
Is a full beard just not your style? Try a compact and tight beard instead! This one stays close to your mouth, is easy to maintain and enhances the natural contours of your shape for a more intense look.
The Patchy One.
Guys with round, soft faces are always looking for ways to strengthen their facial features and create a more angular look. If this sounds like you, opt for this patchy French beard that creates an interesting “W” shape below the mouth area.
Barely There French Beard.
Some guys have no patience for growing beards and mustaches and that’s ok! In such cases, a very short French beard and mustache consisting mostly of stubble would be the best option. It looks neat, trim and clean, making it perfect for the office.
The Lite French Beard and Mustache.
Beards are very much en vogue at the moment, but if you really can’t handle a full chin of facial hair, consider this lighter style. It still gives you the trending look of a French beard, but it won’t feel intense or heavy. It also gives the face a creative shape and helps you to channel your inner artist.
The Thick and Full French Beard.
Want to create a solid shape for your chin but want to elongate your face shape at the same time? This thick and full French beard keeps your jawline looking strong and sharp, while allowing you to rock a bold and stylish look at the same time.
Straight and Square French Beard.
Looking for something that is bold, strong, masculine and oh-so appealing? Consider this square-shaped French beard that can be created by your Well Groomed Gentleman Barbershop stylist. You would then just need to touch it up every few days with your razor.
As can be seen from the above, a French beard and mustache can make you look wonderfully suave in a classic kind of way.
