SHAPE OF YOUR HEAD
The shape of your head plays a very important role not only on your looks but also on the way your beard is presented.
For example if you have an oval or square face, you wouldn't want to have a bushy beard on the sides. For such type of faces, longer style beards look better, straight down the sides of the face. Besides that, the particular beard style looks well groomed and sharp. even though the shape of your head is an important factor on the way you groom your beard, its not the only one.
Your face features also dictate the way you want to groom and shape your beard. That being said, if you have large facial features, such as a big nose, eyes, or lips, you might be better off with a bushy and long beard.
What you want to achieve, is to make your face features, a slick short beard might look much better. With this beard style you can make your face characteristics more distinguished.
In my opinion, your own personal style should be the most important factor when it comes to styling your beard. No matter how your head shape is, if a beard style doesnt make you feel comfortable, its best to avoid it.
Feeling confident with your beard style shouldnt be a compromise. However, its good to be able to adapt to what also complements your face.
There are a lot of men who adapt their personal style depending on the type of jobs they have. Even if a bushy beard is your preferred beard style, there might be a chance that your workplace wouldnt allow that.
In certain workplaces, they require ither a clean shaved or a well groomed and slick corporate beard style.
