The best short beard style. People are what their beards say about them. Who said that wise thing that can’t be argued with? We did right then. It’s true. 

The beard is a physical representation of your identity, whether you are wild and untamed, big and eye-catching, or unique and straight to the point.

A short beard can make you look better if you’re a classy and well-groomed man. But having a short beard isn’t just cutting it down to a centimetre of hair growth every other week.

We asked some of the best barbers in the UK for advice on how to get the best short beard styles and keep them in good shape.

1. SHORT BEARD WITH STUBBLES

George Wilkins from Ruffians Barbers says nicely trimmed stubble is a simple, classic, and attractive style. It would be best if you chose a length you like and then asked your barber to cut it through. The clean scalpel-shaved collar makes this stand out; it makes you look better-groomed and smarter.

HOW TO KEEP IT CARRYING:

If you want to try this short beard style, you only need a bathroom. To avoid being compared to George Michael, just set the beard trimmer to the desired grade, usually less than a centimetre. Depending on how fast you’re growing, prune every two to five days.

2. THE GOATEE STYLE

“This is the most well-known short beard style, and the width makes it work,” says Joe Mills from Joe & Co. “It shouldn’t be too wide or too narrow because that can change the shape of your face, and make it look fuller.” Begin with a more oversized shape and work until you’re happy.

HOW TO KEEP IT CARRYING:

The form will stay the same if you trim it every two days. To remove the hair around your goatee, clean, shave, or set the scissors to the shortest length. If you clean up the moustache line, it will look better and have more depth.

3. FULL BEARD COLLAPSED

This is a full beard, but it’s been kept short in the classic George Clooney style. Koca says, “The length of this style will depend on your personal taste and hair type.”

“In terms of length, it’s usually about a finger deep or a little longer.” If you want a boxed look, your hair should be pretty thick. Inquire about a complete, boxy style that is about medium length. 

Additionally, request that it stay shorter around the eyebrows and be trimmed to line up under the chin and cheeks.

HOW TO KEEP IT CARRYING:

“The best way to keep the blood flowing is to comb it up to six times daily.” This will help your hair thrive and keep your beard in good shape. Use beard oil and conditioner, and wash your beard often.

4. THE ANCHOR

“This is a goatee in different forms,” Mills says. This style has a lot of volume and takes a couple of weeks of stubble to shape it right. “Take a picture of your barber.” It worked for David Beckham and Christian Bale, so you shouldn’t have trouble getting ideas.

HOW TO KEEP IT CARRYING:

“Be patient and easygoing because this goatee isn’t connected.” For evenness, start with the clippers to get the shape, and then use your wet razor to get the details. It will stay looking great with a good balm.

5. THE SHORT SHAGGY BEARD

SAIT KOCACA from the Adam Grooming Atelier says, “This casual style works well if you have uneven hair growth and can’t grow a full beard.” “We think it should be finger-depth short or even shorter.” Maintain the focus on the most significant part of your beard to complete the look.

HOW TO KEEP IT CARRYING:

Regularly wash and condition it, and get it cut every two weeks or whenever it feels too long.” Most of the time, people with this beard ask their barber to fix it up instead of styling it too much.

6. THE GOATEE WITH AN AVERAGE LENGTH

Brad Pitt has been sporting this style all summer, cut short just above the lip, according to Wilkins. “Clean-shaved on the cheeks but with stubble around the jawline; shaving the neck short with trimmers and maybe clean-shaved sometimes.” Keep your hair as long as possible around your chin to make your face look longer.

HOW TO KEEP IT CARRYING:

it’s unnecessary to trim it as often because the style looks great when it grows out.” To keep your look clean, shave your cheeks and trim your beard above your lips regularly. Wash and condition your beard; use natural beard oil to keep it and your face healthy.

Be sure to wash and condition your beard and use natural beard oil to keep it healthy.

7. THE MUSTACHE

In the last Mission: Impossible movie, people looked twice at Henry Cavill with this short beard style. However, stealing the beardstache doesn’t have to involve spying on other countries.

Wilkins advises that you let your beard grow out until you’re satisfied with the length of your moustache. 

If you want the teacher to stand out, ask your barber to grade one, two, or three through the rest of your beard. You can soften the look by fading the cheeks and throat with a lower grade or a straight razor for a manicured look.

HOW TO KEEP IT CARRYING:

“You’ll only have to trim the moustache more often than the stubble.” A beard balm with beeswax would work best to care for the moustache. Work it with your hands or a comb, then let it go naturally.

8. THE BALBO

THE BALBO

The classic two-piece beard, made up of a moustache and a goatee that don’t join, is called the Balbo.

 “The Balbo is a beard style when facial hair is strongest and most noticeable in the chin and moustache area,” says Sait Koca. Robert Downey Jr. uses a lot of creativity in this style, but it’s easier to do yourself.

“The shape of this style usually comes together on its own, so just tell your barber to tidy up the hair growth that way.” For a well-groomed look, keep it longer and sharp on the chin and shave it off.

HOW TO KEEP IT CARRYING:

 “Because there aren’t any harsh lines, this style is pretty easy to take care of between barber visits.” Every so often, you should comb and trim the ends with scissors.

9. THE VAN DYKE

“The Van Dyke is a shorter, cleaner version of the Balbo,” says Koca. As you might expect, Johnny Depp likes this facial hairstyle because it looks rogue and peacock.

For example, it has a beard but no sides. You can make it longer or shorter; just keep it triangular on the chin. Request that your barber trim the beard so that it stands out.

HOW TO KEEP IT CARRYING:

“Shave the sides and make the goatee longer.” For hairstyles, we suggest scissors over clippers. Use a beard brush and moustache or wax to shape the beard if you want to keep it longer. As with any beard, you should wash and condition it often.

10. ROUGH CHIN STRAP BEARD

People who want to draw attention to their strong chin should wear this short beard style. 

The sideburns are the start of a chin strap beard, which goes down and along the bottom of the chin. Ankle straps come in various thicknesses; some can even connect to a beard or goatee, so feel free to get creative with this one.

HOW TO KEEP IT CARRYING:

You’ll need to shave your cheeks, under your chin, and other places nearby to get the genuine chin strap look. Maintaining a well-groomed beard is essential to contain hair growth.

“No matter how long your beard is, it should be shampooed,” says Joe Mills. “Since you’re already in the shower, wash that beard for five minutes longer.” This will keep your beard clean and healthy, but more importantly, the skin underneath it.

BEARD CONDITIONER

“Compounds made from natural ingredients, like Manuka honey, are great for drying out or sensitive skin.” It will clean and soften your beard.

“Your skin and facial hair get hit hard during the day, so take care of them to look their best,” says Joe Mills. “I suggest using balm and oil. Don’t use too much oil because you don’t want it oily.”

BEARD TRIMMER

“The cheap one will take longer and not look as good as the professional one,” says Joe Mills. “Pro units last long and can handle all kinds of beards.” For the right length, choose something portable with several guards.

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO TO TRIM YOUR BEARD TO GET THE RIGHT LENGTH

Maintaining short beard styles at home can be challenging for many of us because we don’t have the professional tools and touch to make the lines straight and uniform. It’s essential to get good haircutters or a beard trimmer.

Practice using the open/close lever (usually a 0.5 grade, which helps bring out more detail when fading) and the guard lengths, which range from grade 1 to 8 in 3 mm steps.

You don’t have to storm in with a grade 1 if you want your beard short. To be safe, George Wilkins from Ruffians says you should trim your beard in steps. He says, “To protect yourself, start with a higher guard and work your way down.” “It’s always better to do things slowly.”

What about the challenging areas, like the area under the nose, the upper lip, the cheeks, and the neckline?

Mills says, “When you work under the nose, you need to trim up to the nose line.” “And you need to line out your top lip too. Use the corner of the clipper to do this slowly.” So you can see what’s going on, I like to emerge from the bottom lip.

According to Wilkins, you should always start your neckline marking in the middle and work your way outwards. However, be careful on the side you’re not working on with your cutter hand. To keep the line from going too low on the cheeks, flip your trimmer blade over and cut up.

Mills suggests using a clipper to make a straight line on the cheek and then a razor to clean it. “The beard line can be seen through it because I used gel instead of foam.”

WHAT SIZE BEARD IS BEST FOR A SHORT BEARD?

Now, you may be scratching your head and thinking about the best beard length. The short answer is that it depends on what you like. A short beard is usually less than an inch or two long, including stubble, a five o’clock shadow, and small goatees.

It depends on your face shape, which is a more complicated answer. We’ll talk more about that next. For a short beard, the best length fits your style and look. You should be able to figure this out as you cut it.

Below is more information about the best length for your face type for a short beard.

WHAT STYLE BEARD LOOKS BEST ON YOUR FACE?

Wearing the hottest, most Hollywood-inspired two-piece will not help if your face shape doesn’t match. Here’s how to make your short beard look good with your face shape.

WHAT KIND OF BEARD LOOKS BEST ON A SQUARE FACE?

According to George Wilkins from Ruffians Barbers, a square face has sharp lines that come easily. It would look better with a beard that is shorter on the cheeks and longer around the chin for a smooth and even look.

WHAT KIND OF BEARD GOES WITH A ROUND FACE?

Wilkins states a round face would look better with more length under the chin. “But make sure the sides are still pretty short.” This will help make a round face look longer.

FORMAT OF BEARD THAT GOES WITH A RECTANGLE FACE?

If you have a rectangular face, you should make it a little bigger because you don’t want to draw too much attention to it, says Joe Mills from Joe & Co. “Stay sharper with these than with the goatee or the Balbo.”

HOW SHOULD YOU STYLE YOUR BEARD IF YOU HAVE AN OVAL FACE?

Mills says that oval faces look good with most beard lengths and that you can style your beard however you like. “A beard and a balboa also look good.”

WHEN DO YOU SHAVE YOUR BEARD FOR A DIAMOND FACE?

According to Mills, shorter beards look better because you don’t want anything too long on the chin. “This makes the shape too big.” The balbo can help with this since it draws attention to the moustache first, then the chin. Too much of a point on your beard can make your face look smaller.
