Top 8 Best Beard Styles In 2022

When it comes to men’s fashion, it can be hard to stay on top of trends — that’s especially true of beard styles, which seem to come and go much more quickly than clothing choices or hairstyles. Fortunately, there are many beard styles (both classic and lesser-known) that pair well with any modern outfit or hairstyle. The following are some of the top looks that are universally well-loved right now. The best part? Despite the fact that they look neat and well-groomed, these beards are deceptively easy to maintain.

1. Corporate Beard

The corporate beard is a little bit like a stubble, but thicker. That’s the essence of what makes it corporate: it’s neat and cut close, but full enough so that it doesn’t look patchy. 

It’s essentially a very short, full beard that looks great in both meeting rooms and low-lit dining halls.

2. Anchor Beard

The Anchor Beard has been popularized by famed actors such as Robert Downey, Jr. Johnny Depp and others. The beauty of this beard is that it takes the best parts of the classic goatee and slims them down for a more modern, rugged and slick look.

3. Full Beard 

Yes, long beards had their post-2000s reckoning, but after becoming status-quo and blasé for the better part of a decade, they’ve officially found their place among the top modern beard styles. Our suggestion? A very long beard often looks best with an equally assertive hairstyle. A shaved head or long, well-kept hair with a long beard makes for an imposing, Nordic look.

4. Scruff 

It’s simple, it’s classic, it’s easy: the scruff beard is a great look for guys in 2022. If you’re interested in cultivating this rugged, just-got-out-of-bed look, you don’t need to do too much. Just be sure to trim your neckline and cheeks for a cleaner, less ragged appearance.

Style is the perfection of a point of view

5. Beard-stache 

The beard-stache is a throwback to a more classic era of facial hair maintenance. If you want to look like an 1800s prize-fighter or a turn-of-the-century longshoreman, try this look on for size. All you have to do is shave your face and chin down to a stubble while growing out your mustache and slicking it down.

6. Van Duke  

Ever see the cult classic V For Vendetta? The beard style on the now-iconic Guy Fawkes mask is essentially an exaggerated version of the Van Duke. By growing out your mustache and chin hair while cutting everything else short, you can achieve a unique and interesting colonial-style beard that will set you apart from most other styles on the market.

7. Natural Beard

The natural beard is exactly what it sounds like: a full beard that’s grown out without excessive trimming. Still, that doesn’t mean you won’t be doing any work to make your natural look stand out. The goal here is to master how your beard is shaped, so that it doesn’t appear too scraggly.
