Men's Life Today: Expert Q+A
I have a couple of spots of uneven growth in my beard. What's the best facial hairstyle for me?
The first style that comes to mind is the easy and always-popular beard scruff. It’s a great choice for the patchy beard crowd because you don’t really need to grow an even beard to achieve it. Plus, there are no rules as to how short or structured the style should be, so this look is open for interpretation.
Another style that comes to mind is for the guys who struggle to grow hair on their cheeks but have plenty along their necks and jawlines: the chin-strap. It’s a gutsy option, but if you have the face shape and the confidence to pull it off, it can be a great look.
Of course, goatee styles are also possibilities. I personally can’t grow enough hair to have a full goatee (or a full Vandyke), but the Vandyke works well for me.
Finally, don’t forget the simple mustache; it’s stylish and sophisticated. And the best part? We can all pull it off.
