There are so many beard styles to choose from, choosing one can seem pretty daunting. Right now, you’re looking for a beard style that will suit your oval face, we compiled a few beard styles that will suit that facial shape.

Short and medium beard styles for oval faces
As we’ve mentioned previously, short/medium beard styles typically suit oval face shapes better. What’s convenient about shorter beard styles, is that you can trim much easier by using an electric razor with a guard, instead of having to use scissors and a comb. If you also use a beard shaping tool, you’ll get cleanly defined beard lines in no-time!
Don’t take too much attention away from your even facial proportions and sport the soul patch. A super easy beard style to maintain that gives a nice accent to your style.
The classic goatee is a beard style you’ll see all around the world. It’s a nice style that only covers the chin and is really easy to upkeep. A little trimming here and there and you’ll look like a badass day-in and day-out.
The chin curtain is a longer version of the chin strap. Both beard styles suit an oval facial shape very well and will make your cheekbones pop out a bit more.
The Winnfield is one of those beard styles that naturally make people respect you, probably due to their fear that you will give them a flying elbow to the chest. They probably suspect you’re a wrestling champion.
For a full beard, expect to grow it for at least 2-3 months, depending on how fast your beard grows. Once in a while, as you’re trimming your beard, use the shaping comb to make your beard lines as clean as you can. This will make your beard stand out from the lot!
Short boxed beard
For this next beard style, you can either grow a full beard and trim the cheeks down, or grow it from scratch and trim as you go. A very classy style that will accentuate your facial features.
The corporate beard is a trimmed down version of the full beard. It’s kept a bit shorter and cleaner, perfect for corporate environments that consider beards to look unprofessional.
Long beard styles for oval faces
Longer beard styles still suit an oval face very well, however, they cover up more of your facial features. You’ll still look awesome, though!
The Garibaldi beard is essentially a full beard, but with a few more weeks of growth. The moustache is kept above the upper lip and connects to the sides.
It’s the same thing as the Garibaldi, but this time, you let your moustache grow longer on the ends, in order to allow you to twist them into a neat handlebar. It’s the fancier Garibaldi.
This beard style is the result of a full year of beard growth, with only minor trimming to remove the split ends and such. For this style, keep the moustache long and natural, it’s a very manly style.
Beard styles come and go, so you shouldn’t be scared to experiment with your beard to find a unique style that suits you. Yes you have an oval facial shape, and yes certain styles suit that better, but you shouldn’t only limit yourself to what is “prescribed”. Remember, be Brave, be You.
