Chin Dense Thick Beard

This sculpted, groomed beard is certainly the mark of a gentleman. It’s grown out just enough to have a fair amount of heft, but it’s kept in control with careful trimming.

Uniform 3 mm Trim

Think of this as a Caesar cut for your beard. The length is the same all over, giving this a crisp, uniform look.

Confident Moustache and Beard Pair

This bushy style is modeled after the hipster look––it even has a curled up mustache. It’s a longer style, so if you want to experiment with length, this is a good starting point.

Full Grown Combed Back beard

Beard hair can be just as tidy as the hair on top of your head! This beard has been combed into place, and it mirrors the nicely combed hair on top.

Roughly Tapered Beard

For a more natural and unkempt appearance, you might try this style. It’s still very full, but it’s not as neatly trimmed or tapered.

Afro Scuffed Beard

Afro Scuffed Beard

If your beard hair is extremely curly or coiled, try keeping it short––it’ll help you tame your fuzz and add definition to your face.

Chin Long Tapered Beard

Chin Long Tapered Beard

Not sure whether to go shorter or longer? Maybe start with a style that’s somewhere in the middle like this medium length taper.

Densely Populated Drop Down Beard
@ambarberia

Densely Populated Drop Down Beard

If your beard likes to grow in thick, you can take full advantage of that. This drop down style keeps the entire beard quite dense (but not too long).

10/63
Elongated Beard with Mid Drop Fade
@z_ramsey

Elongated Beard with Mid Drop Fade

For the guys who like to wear longer beards, this elongated look is a solid choice. Even though it’s long, it’s still very tidy thanks to an expert trim.

Classic Moustache and Beard Combo

Classic Moustache and Beard Combo

The curled up moustache is a one-of-a-kind look. It looks great whether you have a shorter beard (as shown here) or a longer one.

Inch Perfect Beard
@willsalon

Inch Perfect Beard

If your personal style is neat and trendy in the style of European fashion, then you’ll likely love this beard that’s complete with a line up on the sides.

13/63
Thick Hair Dense Beard
@ petko.andonov_buddubbaz

Thick Hair Dense Beard

Who says you need a temple fade to get the beard started? Look at this independent beard with longer and thicker hair strands that make this whole rugged look seem so easy. The key is to brush down the length as you go lower for having a maximum density at the chin, also a buzz cut goes quite well!

14/63
Layered Beard with Temple Connect
@ edurezendeart

Layered Beard with Temple Connect

Layered beard is always a trend yet not too easy to pull it off. The density is very focused on the chin and neck with grizzly texture makes it very thicker. The taper on the sides makes it so trendy and all it needs is a size 2 clipping. Not to mention, the top knot is cool too.

15/63
Rugged Viking Inspired Beard
@ barbarian.beard

Rugged Viking Inspired Beard

This look is a very anchored one because of the beard, plus the longer strands make it so dense. The mustache adds extra flair to it with a thicker texture. The hair is wavy makes it a wholesome look especially pulling off similar density. The sides of the beard are also well kept and trimmed for a neater approach.

16/63
Chris Hemsworth Inspired Look
@levistocke

Chris Hemsworth Inspired Look

Let’s decode this beard as it is quite simple, the sides are slightly tapered with a length shorter than the lower face. That makes the lower face look all thick and rugged. The blend from the temple gives a very wholesome look and the shorter hair on top makes it so much fun.

17/63
Denser Chin Strap Beard
@ jabbojt

Denser Chin Strap Beard

Chinstrap beard is usually disconnected but this is slightly a different flair, the sides are dense with disconnection with a mustache. The beard is kept on the face with a cleaner look towards the neck. The key is to maintain towards the cheeks with some shave.

18/63
Dark Blonde Thick Beard
@gwilymcpugh

Dark Blonde Thick Beard

Thick hair comes to those who are patient enough to let it grow. So the key is to let it grow all grizzly at first and then to shape it the way you want. Here it is tapered on the sides slightly with more focus on the chin making it so thick and cool. The volume up is similar balancing it quite well.

19/63
Classic Faded Yet Dense Beard
@hayden_cassidy

Classic Faded Yet Dense Beard

Here is where a cheeky temple fade comes into play that helps a thick beard sneak in. The sides of the beard are slightly tapered whereas the chin and goatee are kept very thick to bring the volume towards the mouth. The neck is stubbled and the same volume is kept up for that neat balance we look for.

20/63
A Little Above Stubble
@hair_bello

A Little Above Stubble

A stubble beard always comes to the rescue but this one just one step further from a classic stubble. The volume is a tad thicker and keeping an equal density all over. This compliments the hair on top where the volume is almost equal. You see it is all about having that balance.

21/63
Side Faded Beard
@napolesbarbershop

Side Faded Beard

If you look closely, the hair and beard are symmetrical, both are faded on the sides and the top and bottom are kept all dense and thick. The hair is more of brush-up types whereas the beard is more stubble textured but thick at its lowest.

22/63
Straightened Brush Down Beard
@menshairuk

Straightened Brush Down Beard

Now that’s what we call an equalizer, I mean just look at that thin-haired beard. Although thin, the density is what makes all the difference and gets the girth from its long-ish strands. The angular approach and straight texture make it look just like the top, a total style statement.

23/63
Faded Beard and Thick Mustache
@unitedbarbers.spain

Faded Beard and Thick Mustache

Woah, do you have any words to describe this? Because I am out of words here, I mean just look at the tall standing mustache with a faded beard. The sides are faded for it to blend it with the temple making it one dashing style. The mustache and chin strap brings density and balance to the look.

24/63
Issa Thick Beard
@b.a.r.b.e.i.r.o.s

Issa Thick Beard

Can a Beard be any thicker than this? I hardly doubt that the panache here is impeccable. The beard is slightly tapered on the sides for the fun of it but is kept quite dense at the chin to make the mustache look cool. Not to mention, it all balances the top with a thick texture and long side-sweep.

25/63
Beard God, Is That You?
@b.a.r.b.e.i.r.o.s

Beard God, Is That You?

If you are looking for something subtle yet something dense, this is the look one should go for. The top is almost a thick buzz with sides faded and strip shaved. That is then blended into the beard with sides being faded and then tapered. It gradually grows dense at the lower face that helps anchor the look.

26/63
Is Mustache Pompadour a Thing?
@ cutjunkies

Is Mustache Pompadour a Thing?

The balance is something that this look aces quite well. The pompadour on top with longer strands near the chin is something to strive for. The sides are thinner towards the temple and thicker as it goes low. The neck is clean for that managed look, also see that blended goatee, surely is a GOAT look.

27/63
Brush Up and Laid Beard
@ itsbatur

Brush Up and Laid Beard

One rule of thumb is that if the hair is poppy and all brushed up, keep the beard a little low key to avoid the attention divide to both. But the beard here anchors the look so well as it is just as dense as the top with a very steep cheek line and a connected temple, couldn’t ask for more.

28/63
Clean Sides and Dense Chin
@patty_cuts

Clean Sides and Dense Chin

Cleaner look is a sign of a true gentleman, but here it is done twice, once at the temple and then the shave. Hence, twice the gentleman. The top is subtle yet cool with a wavy quiff and the beard is a french beard with very clean looks on the sides and a thick one at the chin.

29/63
Side Swept Top with Viking Beard
@blackfishbry

Side Swept Top with Viking Beard

This look is multifaceted, the top is quite dapper with a sleek side sweep and a hard part with a low drop fade. Now that totally changes as we go down as this one is a rugged Viking beard with longer strands and focused on mustache. The temple blend brings it all together.

30/63
Afro Temple Blend
@patty_cuts

Afro Temple Blend

When wanna rock clean, a temple blend is something you are looking for. The sides become clean with stubble on sides with dense beard strand towards the chin. The neck is kept clean and slight shave to keep it all in place. This look is complemented by the top which is similarly under control yet quite stylish.

31/63
Classy Stubble Trouble
@danperrihair

Classy Stubble Trouble

Volume and balance are what all make a good look. This one sits right on top of the balance chart as you see the thickness and density is quite uniform all around the hair. The beard is very stubble with the sides of the head being the same. That helps to pull the focus at a cool widow’s peak.

32/63
Thin Yet Thick Beard
@ sharperimagebarbers

Thin Yet Thick Beard

This is what a well-kept beard looks like, the hair strands although are thin, the grizzly texture makes it look thick and dense. The temple is where it all starts and the texture goes all the way down till the chin where most of the thickness comes from. Don’t forget to shape the sides in that curve form.

33/63
Thick Afro Sick Beard
@jelle.vissers

Thick Afro Sick Beard

Now, this is a twister, this beard can be rocked in various situations, from casual to formal to very informal. This beard requires a lot of maintenance and long strand texture. Upon that one needs to shape it from time to time but let it grow as well. Use some beard oil to keep it in place!

34/63
Thick Curly Temple Fade
@yakuzabarber

Thick Curly Temple Fade

One step thicker than stubble plus that maintained beard adds up to the look when paired with such chill temple fade. The top is all thick curled with the length being longer on the top and fades as it goes down.

35/63
Balanced Top to Bottom
@olliefosterhair

Balanced Top to Bottom

Ever heard of a puffy beard? Well here it is and it is quite good. The puffed beard is basically longer strands and curled towards the end. The cornered temple makes it easy to blend it with the top. Don’t miss that temple fade.

36/63
Pinched French Crop with Slit Drop fade
@ renjworld

Pinched French Crop with Slit Drop Fade

This style is something out of the blue, or should I say out of lilac. The beard is a long beard with a frizzed thin texture. The hair on the other hand is a completely different ball game. The dye and pinched brush up make all the good noise.

37/63
Chin Strapped or Chin Pointy?
@dencioaguilar

Chin Strapped or Chin Pointy?

The balance in this cut is quite particular. The top is short but not too short and the beard is long but not too long. This can be a grown-up version of a chin strap beard. Remember to have the sides faded for that cleaner look.

38/63
Grizzly Dense Beard with Gentleman Top
@sunshinesnipps

Grizzly Dense Beard with Gentleman Top

Dense beard always needs some balancing otherwise it gets too intense, this is a perfect example of keeping things balanced. The top is side-parted with a beard being grown up in a grizzly form.

39/63
Boxy Angled Beard with Slicked Back Top
@anthonythebarber916

Boxy Angled Beard with Slicked Back Top

Growing beard is one thing but maintaining it the way to go. This is an example of growing and then keeping it in a groomed way. The neck and cheekbones have been cleanly shaved with the top being puffed slicked back for that neat overall look.

40/63
Size 1 Tapered Beard
@zeke_the_barber

Size 1 Tapered Beard

Puffed side part is quite trendy and new. The focus puller is the cheeky temple fade which makes way for the beard. Beard is tapered finely with decent volume and a lot of detailing along the ckeeks.

41/63
Oldie Frizzy Beard with SIde Part
@anthonythebarber916

Oldie Frizzy Beard with Side Part

Frizzy beard is quite chill but it focused on the mustache while it is focused on the chin strap. The side part on the top makes everything quite neat with the side sweep making everything full of a retro vibe.

42/63
Boxy Beard with Afro Blob
@ barbeirodiegojordan

Boxy Beard with Afro Blob

Beard is a work of art, and an artist needs to know how to balance the bottom to the top. This is one of those looks that is perfectly balanced, especially with thin afro curls that can go out of hand pretty quick, the blob is just amazingly in shape.

43/63
Mid Faded Beard is a Thing
@travisanthonyhair

Mid Faded Beard is a Thing

Mid-faded beards are a real thing and here is the proof. Well, it is not as easy as it looks though. The temple fade is the key to faded beards as they make way for them yet keep them connected to the top and not separating them off.

44/63
Santa Claus Beard with Mustache
@ beardinberlin

Santa Claus Beard with Mustache

“This is what we came for!” The legit Santa Claus-y beard with thick strands and long texture is what makes this one quite a show stopper. Rock it anywhere it going to get you the looks.

45/63
Thick Beard with Pocky Slim Top
@ beardinberlin

Thick Beard with Pocky Slim Top

Sometimes hair has to be subtle in order for the beard to make a bold statement. This style is nothing different, the top is pocky side brushed with a beard taking the thick lead. Style the beard with some beard oil for maximum volume.

46/63
Curled Top with High Fade
@ marcovfialho

Curled Top with High Fade

Faded temple makes way for the looks and this is no different. The top is curled with thin hair plus the high fade makes everything very neat and chill. The boxy beard with tapered texture is a subtle yet fun look.

47/63
Mid Faded Beard
@ ethosofbeard

Mid Faded Beard

The volume is the key in this hairstyle. The top is brushed up with some side hand brush to it. The beard is the same with more volume towards the bottom and less at the cheeks. The mid faded beard is what makes it fun.

48/63
Thin Hair Side Part with Subtle Tapered Sides
@ the_bloody_butcher

Thin Hair Side Part with Subtle Tapered Sides

Multi-color beards are always in fashion especially with this longer and thicker strand style. The top is thin hair and side-parted with less volume for all that attention towards the beard.

49/63
Extended Chin Beard
@ rl.barbearia

Extended Chin Beard

Thick beard hair always has an advantage because it can be styled in many different ways. This one is chin-focused with sides being taper-shaved for all the focus towards the longer bottom.

50/63
Grizzly Thick Santa Beard
@ the_bloody_butcher

Grizzly Thick Santa Beard

This beard takes a while to grow but then when it does it does wonders. The top is french cropped with a thick beard on the bottom does wonder. The volume shift on the bottom is what makes this quite a special one.

51/63
Thick Grown Rough Beard
@ rl.barbearia

Thick Grown Rough Beard

We can successfully classify this as a slightly mature look with beard and hair balancing each other out perfectly. The beard is slightly elongated that means the strands are longer and as they are quite thick, they stand still with those white shade.

52/63
Neat Casual Rough Beard
@ _robson_barber_

Neat Casual Rough Beard

Very subtle yet don’t miss the details here. The volume here is quite dense and it is generically subtle. The neck and upper cheeks are clean shaved for attention to detail. The temple is tapered so that the beard enters the equation subtly.

53/63
Frizzy Tapered Top with Trimmed Beard
@andrewdoeshair

Frizzy Tapered Top with Trimmed Beard

Less is more and this is what this look opts for. The top is tapered and tossed for the Wednesday casual look. The beard here evenly trimmed for that uniform volume all-around along with the top which is pretty uniform as well.

54/63
That Rough Brush Up with Mid Faded Beard
@ rl.barbearia

Rough Brush Up with Mid Faded Beard

Grizzle up and grizzle down is the way to go. The top is rough and brushed up which instantly pumped up the thickness. Whilst the beard down there is quite mid-faded with fluffed volume at the chin.

55/63
Neat and Organized Beard To Top
@santanaalisson

Neat and Organized Beard To Top

Organization is the key and here it is such a great display of neat maintenance and panache. The beard is clearly connected to the top which is another very neat style with its thin hair pompadour.

56/63
Curly Top To Bottom
@adribarbeiro

Curly Top To Bottom

Grizzle culture is not just for the top but also the beard is getting on board, especially we see here that the beard is equally curly yet it is maintained quite well the boxy look. The top is equally supportive with the flat top of curls.

57/63
Pointy Beard with Frizzed French Crop
@travisanthonyhair

Pointy Beard with Frizzed French Crop

Pointy beards are getting more popular but there is a key in here. The chin has to be grown out more than the sides and mustache. The slight tapering makes it more prominent with the temple blend makes it very cool, don’t forget the frizzed french crop.

58/63
Rugged Shiny Blonde Beard with Frizzed Top
@barberinspirations

Rugged Shiny Blonde Beard with Frizzed Top

Beard is the epitome of being tough and this is a prime example of the same. The top is frizzed blonde whereas the beard is a shiny blonde with decently long strands that drop down making it look quite tough.

59/63
Thin Brush Up with Thick Dense Beard
@ arcadianofficial

Thin Brush Up with Thick Dense Beard

Brush up is a look that enhances volume just like here we see the hair is dense. In order for that to happen smoothly, the beard comes in handy as a balancer with a thick texture.

60/63
Gentlemen Side Brush Up
@kochifaraj

Gentlemen Side Brush Up

Thick beards need a good balancer volume on the top as well. The side brush-up is something with good volume that makes up for a good look overall. There is no fade so as to avoid that neat look and have more of a rugged look.

61/63
WHATT-A-MAN
@barberinspirations

WHATT-A-MAN

Now that is a combination with more than three major elements; to begin with, the top is brushed up with that thin part which makes it very gentleman-ish. The beard is very tamed with that stylish slit shave on the side.

62/63
Dense Curly Shag with Fancy Beard
@ bonsmenshair

Dense Curly Shag with Fancy Beard

Now that is style of the year, or well at least a good nomination. The top is a dense curly shag with that beard that is tamed and styled with volume at the mustache. Can anyone go wrong with this look, most probably not!

63/63
Are You Mid Faded Beard?
@adribarbeiro

Are You Mid-Faded Beard?

Beard is an art, what we have here is the work of an artist. The amazingly shaved arc is pure perfection along with that smooth fade on cheek makes it very unique yet classy altogether.
