Choosing a hairstyle to go with a beard depends on what kind of look you want and whether you need to look formal or not. This guy opted for a style that was in contrast – texturally – with his beard, one that also kept his hair off his face and had a polished finish. This was a smart move as long hair or bangs can often hide the face rather than showcase it. The success of this hairstyle is all down to the amount of volume it has. This comes from mussing hair with putty, massaging the roots for extra lift, and then sculpting into the desired shape. For a seriously slick look, use a comb to smooth everything over once you’re done shaping.
