Right now, there’s no denying that beards are super trendy. Rocking a beard for your wedding can help you show off your personality and style, especially in the wedding photos you will be showing family and friends for years to come (and likely using for your wedding photo thank you cards). Don’t fret if a beard isn’t already your signature style, prepping for your big day is a great time to try out something new. Here are 10 very stylish beards for help fuel your inspiration, brought to you by Harry’s, the company that is redefining shaving. Try one or try them all!
Start playing around with your facial hair a few months before your wedding to give yourself time to try different styles and decide how long you will need to let your facial grow if you’re not trying to show up clean shaven. Depending on if you want some scruff, just a mustache or a long, styled beard you can plan how long you can go from a clean shave to the length of facial hair you desire. Plus, you will want to sport facial hair that allows you to show of your personal style and accentuates your best features, after all this is your wedding! Just like you plan out your suit, shoes and hair, planning your facial hair is a must, so here are some looks to try out before you head down the aisle.
If you don’t want to go with something overly styled, just grow out a little scruff. Depending on how fast your hair grows, this could take anywhere from a couple days to about a week. Even if you struggle from patchy beard syndrome you can rock this look for your wedding with a nice, styled haircut.
Full and Styled Beard
This look is a step above the scruff, and is great if you can grow out a full, even beard. Use a brand new, sharp razor to achieve the clean lines, which is the perfect way to rock a beard and ensure it looks nicely styled for a special occasion.
Just a Full Beard
This style is a little less refined than the previous, but it still works! Again, the ability to grow an even and full beard really makes this work. Bonus tip: if you’re lacking hair on the top of your head, this look is great for you because you will still look clean and polished.
A Long Beard
Because of how popular beards are right now, you can get away with a long beard, no matter what your style is! If growing out a beard has been on your mind for awhile, just give it a shot and give yourself time. This particular beard isn’t super-well groomed, so if you have a laidback and chill vibe, this may be the perfect facial hair to show off your personality on your wedding day!
Long and Groomed Beard
If you are all about self-care, then go for a long but well groomed beard. This is a timeless look that can be great for your wedding! Take care of your long facial hair with a beard oil to help it look styled, clean and polished.
Long/Full with a Styled Mustache
This look is very hip, on trend and great for a formal wedding. The styled mustache with a long or full beard does take a lot of work because it needs to be clean and polished to look this good. However, when properly cared for you will look cool in your wedding photos, and it will really show of the style and trends of 2018 for years to come!
At first glance of the words ‘chin strap’ you may be having Jersey Shore, fist pumping flash backs. But the updated chin strap can look really cool. Grow it out a little longer and thicker than you think you should; paired with a mustache and an on-trend haircut, and this look is nice and casual for your big day!
A goatee style is another perfect style for those out there who can’t grow totally even facial hair and aren’t big fans of the scruffy look. With a goatee, you don’t have to worry about any patchiness on your cheeks! It’s a small amount of hair either just on the chin or wraps around the mouth and connects to a mustache as well.
Talk about timeless! Mustaches will always be stylish and macho. This is another option if you don’t like a full beard but want to have a little something going on. And just like beards, there are so many ways to style and grow them that the options are pretty much endless… What we have pictured here is full and think, but you could be a little more daring and grow it out long and use a mustache wax to give yourself a hipster look.
Barely There Beard
Maybe a beard isn’t really your thing and maybe you look like a little boy with a clean shaven face… that’s okay! Try shaving a day or two before the big day for a 5-o’clock shadow that’s sexy and barely there.
Luckily, the options are truly endless when it comes to facial hair styles. Right now is a great time to try something new with your look and grow out facial hair, weddings are all about new beginnings, right? We recommend planning a few months in advance, so you can find what works best for you. Think about the amount of effort you want to put into your facial hair, what works with your face shape, and what shows off your personality best! All eyes will be on you (and of course your lovely bride) on the big day so you’ll want to look just as good as you feel. You want to look and feel like a million bucks on your wedding day, so make sure you choose a style that makes you feel comfortable and confident.
