2. The Box Beard :

The Box Beard is probably the most “here for royal matters” looking beard style of all time. To get the perfect look, first form a well defined border from your sideburns to your moustache. Then wait for the beard to fill out a little under your chin and make a fading border there. Trim at regular intervals depending on your beard’s growth rate to maintain the borders from then on. This style is suitable for all face types.

6. Chinstrap beard :

With the same floating moustache as the Balbo, the chinstrap defines a chin and jaw-line very well. To achieve this style, trim away all hair from cheeks while leaving a thin line from your sideburns to the chin hugging your jaw line. Keep the moustache floating and thin. The style fits seamlessly into corporate to leisure depending on what you are dressed for.
