Welcome to the second insert of our three-part beard maintenance series. Check out the previous article on low-maintenance beard styles.
Now, let’s get into mid-level maintenance styles which will take up just a little more time to keep up with.
- The Van Dyke Beard
This is very similar to a goatee. It features a goatee and a moustache like most beard styles, however, in this style they are disconnected, meaning that there is a space between the two.
Just like the goatee, you should grow the hair on your chin, a moustache, and an optional soul patch. Shave your cheeks completely to achieve this style.
2. The Power Beard
The name ‘power beard’ was coined for this style because it is said to be a beard that means business. It is a style that combines modernity and ruggedness which is a tricky balance to achieve.
This style is for all the bearded men who just want to let their mane go wild. It is attained when your whole beard and moustache grow and when this connects to your sideburns.
3. The Ducktail
This style’s name stems from the fact that it resembles a ducktail.
This style is achieved by growing out the hair underneath your chin and regularly trimming the hair on your cheeks so that the chin hair stands out, creating the ducktail effect.
