Beards are officially back in style, and not just the rustic lumberjack chic look. Beards of all kinds are on trend, from designer beards and stubble to goatees, the “beardstache”, and plenty more besides. This is great news for all you style-conscious men out there, since it means experimenting with your facial hair can be just as fitting for the boardroom as for the street. But remember, your beard doesn’t exist in a vacuum: a tasteful pairing of hair and beard styles is vital for a cohesively stylish look.

Wearing a beard is a great way to express your unique style and individuality, as it allows you to mix up this style as and when you want, simply by trimming your beard.

The men’s undercut is the epitome of versatility when it comes to beard haircuts, spanning the whole gamut of styles, from rough and rugged to strictly business. For example, an undercut with long hair and beard style will give you an edgy look that’s bound to turn a few heads.

The side part is a classic yet somehow still feels contemporary, especially when you match it with an appropriate beard style. Since neatly side-swept hair is particularly suited to more professional or formal occasions, a well-groomed beard is the perfect match for this style. This still leaves plenty of room for variation with your beard, too. For instance, instead of a full beard, you could try a neatly trimmed goatee to mix it up. Whatever you decide, the key for this beard and hairstyle pairing is regular maintenance – keep your beard trimmed and your hair part neat!
´Keep your beard looking great with the right care program
The feeling of choosing your ideal haircut and beard combination is great in itself, but to really get the most out of your new look you need to make sure you’re taking care of both your beard and hair equally.

The göt2b® PHENOMENAL conditioning oil is ideal for this, helping to soften and tame your beard and keep it from getting scraggly.

If you’re normally a bit pressed for time in the morning, using a combination product like göt2b® PHENOMENAL beard and hair shampoo is a handy time-saving way to make sure your entire head of hair gets the nourishment it needs.
