A full beard refers to facial hair that covers the bottom portion of the face and includes well-defined sides and shaping. A full beard can be any length – from long stubble to chest length.
You may think that full beards are always bushy, but there are many styles that look neat and polished as well, making it easier than ever to sport a full beard look. Here are 65 fashionable looks to get you inspired:
# 1 Big Bushy Beard
You can’t get much fuller than a big, bushy beard. It’s long and scraggly, unstyled and natural. The mustache covers the top lip and extends into the beard on the ends, leaving a peak of mouth showing through.
# 2 Neat with Clean Edges Around the Mouth
This is a far neater beard, tight and trim to the face. It differs from a regular full beard as much of the large chin is left hairless – great for avoiding mess when eating.
# 3 Full Santa Beard
This coarse white beard is reminiscent of the Santa style, great for grandfathers wanting to entertain grandkids. The moustache is bushy and long, upturned at the ends to add some class.
# 4 Long but Neat
This beard is long and scraggly but appears neat. It has a perfectly rounded bottom edge and the mustache is lightly parted so almost the entire mouth is visible.
# 5 Trim Top and Layered Bottom
This full beard falls in layers, shorter on top while the bottom is dark and busy. The mustache is short and keeps the mouth area clear. The color variance here really draws the eye.
# 6 Clipped And Clean
For a full beard look that doesn’t look untidy take care to keep your neck clear. Let your beard just curl over the jaw line, then keep it neatly clipped in a rounded shape like this model. He’s wearing his facial hair with natural lines over the cheeks and a full moustache.
# 7 Soft And Full
In this picture, the model has a full beard at a medium length together with a moustache. The moustache just hugs the top lip and the texture of the hair seems soft and well cared for.

Instead of brushing the tips of his moustache into his beard this model has styled his handlebars to sleek straight out over the facial hair. He’s wearing a medium long beard, which has been expertly shaped.
# 9 Red Beard
Men with red hair often have striking shades in their facial hair – another good reason to grow one! This model has shaved some of the hair below and around the lips to create a soul patch and separate the ginger moustache.
