I’m gonna let you guys on a little secret that will help you out whether you sport a manly mountain man beard or no beard at all. The secret is balance.
If you keep your long and manly beard, make sure your haircut on top is extra precise and up to date. (This is how hipsters combine clean cut trendy and a masculine beard and why it’s such a popular look – because it works in perfect harmony!) On the other side, the opposite holds true – if your hairstyle is more akin to a ‘bed head’ style, you’d best be clean shaven or close.
