Get crazy beards with grow for a cause


Give top X-athletes the wildest beards you can imagine with a new charity contest that lets you suggest their next style

Have you ever tried to grow a full goatee (goatee & mustache) and learned the hard way that the hair on the sides of your mouth couldn’t connect? Or tried for a full beard, but found you couldn’t seem to get the hair on your cheeks to grow in enough? If this is the case, don’t worry - you’re not alone. And besides, worrying about what you don’t have will get you nowhere, and it certainly won’t spark a magical growth spurt of hair on your face. So relax, and trust me when I say that if you focus on what facial hair you do have versus what is missing, you’ll be in much better shape!

For clients who have limited or missing facial hair in these areas, I always suggest the Van Dyke beard variation. The Van Dyke is perfect for these men because the mustache and the beard don’t connect, not to mention it is a very popular style right now.

And here’s the better news. Because the mustache and chin hair tends to grow in thicker and fuller, shaping these areas will deliver a stronger looking style that will stand out and help define the face. The same applies for the beard that just can’t fill in. Whether your facial hair is sparse on the cheeks, the chin, the upper lip or even the neck, there are plenty of styling options to consider.

The bottom line is that if you focus on how your hair specifically grows, then you can open your mind to ideas that best suit you, not simply trying to emulate someone else’s look. Because, at the end of the day it’s your style – and no two beards are alike!
