Beard without mustache is still a very fashionable design if you cut and style them right. And so even if you cannot grow the traditional soup-strainer or you simply don’t like it this does not mean that you cannot look trendy and masculine.
There are limitless facial hair designs that you can try without having the handlebars and this gallery show 40 of the best ones.
