2018 has heralded new hairstyles for men and revived some classic looks. The same applies to facial hair. Beard styles for the year 2018 are a combination of unprecedented designs and the return of classic beards and mustaches.
Fade hairstyles and hair designs will become strong and more creative in 2018. We even see bearded visors, which let the facial hair bleach. The latest hair tattoos go even further, adding slashes and graphics to the beard. Some styles create designs that start on the head and continue in facial hair.
As far as classic styles go, grow this beard. Mustaches and long beards that show full facial hair are on point. Men with beard should use a combination of wash and beard oil to ensure facial hair is soft, conditioned, and manageable. For guys who want to have a low maintenance look, a short beard always looks good and is easy to maintain at home. Add a fade or defined line for a cool finish.
