For those who are having a harder time growing facial hair or need to stay within dress codes for work, this style is a go-to. Sideburns are a growing trend in comparison to previous years. Muttonchops are versatile – ranging from a macho look for some guys while having a more subtle effect for others. Keep a pair of small clippers in the bathroom to keep bottom edges of the sideburns clean or tapered.

Designer Stubble is a look that’s on the rise this year. Hollywood hunks such as Ryan Gosling and Bradley Cooper can be seen sporting this style quite effortlessly. Stubble has the advantage of adding definition to facial features and goes well with most hairstyles as well. Keep your face hydrated with a daily moisturizer to avoid irritation or stubborn ingrown hairs after shaving.

The classic mustache had the ability to add an artsy effect to anyone’s style. This strapping look is a little more high maintenance than stubble and sideburns, however, when done right can be incredibly tasteful. Pick up a jar of mustache wax to add shine and tame rebellious stray hairs.

Although the fuller beard has been a big hit in past years, style experts are now looking for a more manicured beard. This type of beard requires patience but offers a clean and sophisticated appearance. It’s important to maintain the manicured beard by keeping edges sharp, trimming the length to keep the beard short, and shampooing the hair daily.
