Grow Your Beard Your Way

Care for Your Beard the Right Way

The right beard shape can make or break your overall look. With so many different beard styles to choose from, it can be overwhelming and difficult to find the right one for you. Many people do not know that there are factors that can help determine the best beard style for you. It is always best to consult with your barber as to which beard style to choose, since they are experts and are experienced at high quality grooming.

Whether you prefer full beards or short beards, the choice is yours. Our job is to help you care for it the right way. We offer professional beard trimming services at affordable prices. Plus, our stylists are a wealth of knowledge on beard maintenance. Bring your questions and concerns to our staff, and we’ll give you the best maintenance tricks, tips, and tools to keep your mane looking sharp.

Tell Us All: Your Beard Shaping Consultation

At X5 Cuts, we understand the time it takes to grow a beard. When you visit a barber, you put total trust in the hands that hold the scissors. That’s not easy to do—we get it! That’s why, before we look at that trimmer, we’ll consult with you in-depth on the aesthetic you’re hoping to achieve. Whether you need more shape, a trim, or some weight removed, your wish is our command. We’ll make sure we cut to your precise specifications. No more, no less.

General Beard Shaping

If you would like a more uniform and cleaner look to your beard, our stylists are here to help. We will remove uneven whiskers and make sure that your beard shape is proportional to and works with your facial features.

If you are looking for a change here are a few different beard styles that are currently on trend that we can create for you.

The Wolf

The wolf style incorporates large sideburns also known as “mutton chops”. These sideburns extend onto the cheek and sometimes as far down as the chin. This style of beard is best suited for men with an angular, square shaped face and prominent jawline. This look is relatively low maintenance because as it grows in and blends with stubble, this can add to the “rock and roll” look.

The Handlebar

The Handlebar mustache is currently enjoying a resurgence in popularity. It is a square-shaped mustache that extends horizontally across the upper lip and then vertically on either side of the mouth, creating a frame for the lips. This style of beard is suited to those with a dimpled, square shaped chin, or a rounder face that seeks to add definition. This look is on the higher maintenance side, as it requires frequent shaping and care.

The Goatee

The goatee is a look that is characterized by isolating hair to growing only on the chin. This look is best for those who wish to extend the length of their face. Men with round faces or short chins would benefit from this low maintenance style. A popular variation on the goatee is an extended goatee, where the hair on the chin is blended with a mustache. This style is very versatile and suitable for men of all face shapes. It is medium maintenance, as it does require occasional shaping and trimming.

Low Maintenance Stubble

A modern take on a full beard is stubble. This style was considered as “unkempt” in the ‘50s but is currently enjoying a surge in popularity. Stubble is low maintenance, as it is just hair that naturally grows on the face after shaving. For this look, it is kept until it is medium length, and then fully shaved until it grows back, and so on. This is the lowest maintenance of all beard shapes!

As you can see, there are plenty of beard shapes to choose from. To find the right shape for you, speak with your barber at X5 Cuts!
