Here at Don Juan Pomade, we’re proud to be considered haircare experts, knowing not only how to achieve a wide range of styles but also how to keep it healthy using natural, nourishing ingredients. But we also know a thing or two about beards, having developed various products specifically for men’s facial hair.
One thing that we know for certain is that in order to have a cohesive and generally attractive look, men have to make an effort to take into consideration their unique hairstyle when deciding what kind of beard they’d like to have.
If you have short hair, you have more leeway when it comes to your beard. Why? Because short hair is unassuming, and less likely to conflict with your facial hair style because it doesn’t really clash with anything. It’s like a black t-shirt in that it goes with everything, which makes your life easier. So, if you keep your hair cropped, you can experiment with a wide range of beard styles and focus more on finding one that suits your face shape and is compatible with the hair type of your beard.
If you like to rock the “I woke up like this” look with medium-length hair tousled to perfection, then you’re going to want to keep your beard relatively unassuming. We love a shorter, almost stubbly look, because it complements the vibe without overpowering the hair. You can also keep a short, uniform beard, and it should be neat but not so tidy that it looks like you’re trying. The key is keeping it casual, making it look generally under control without looking like you’re trying too hard.
Generally, guys who have long hair can experiment with short, medium, and long beards, because each style complements the beard in a unique way. But you’ll wanna take into account your hair type. For instance, if you have very curly hair, growing it out long will make those curls really come to life, and so your beard shouldn’t be so long and burly that it looks like overkill.
The spiky hair look is back, and guys are spending a good deal of time getting those spikes exactly right with the perfect pomade formula. So, what does this hairstyle mean to guys trying to grow out a beard? Well, first of all, it depends on the length of the spikes. Longer spikes make a loud statement, so you should keep the beard minimal. Shorter spikes with less structure can be complemented by a medium-sized beard. Or, if you’re feeling extra ambitious, we suggest doing some unique shaping to match the unique character of the hair you’re rocking.
If you’ve got hair that’s curly or wavy, we recommend going for a lusciously full short or medium-length beard. Those with naturally curly or wavy hair tend to have facial hair that’s on the thicker side, and so they are the lucky ones who can have a beard that grows in fully and evenly.
If you’re all about that sleek, pulled back man bun, then you will want to keep the beard equally neat and tidy. However, this doesn’t mean that you can’t have fun with it. Try some cool shaping so that there’s an architectural feeling to your facial hair, which will offset the minimalism of the man bun look.
If you keep your hair super neat and deeply parted, as is still a popular style, then your beard should be equally maintained. We recommend keeping it short, to complete the tidy look that you’ve worked hard for with your hair. Also, keep that beard nice and full, because patchiness does not complement a nice, sleek hairstyle.
If you’re looking to grow out your beard, make sure that you first take into consideration your hairstyle. Use this guide to figure out which kind of beard is right for you based on the hair that you’re currently rocking. And don’t forget that Don Juan Pomade products can benefit both your beard and your hair, helping tie that look together.
