# 7 Long and Full
No longer just for mountain men, the long, full beard is right on trend in 2016. This beard completely conceals his jawline and chin and has been clipped to have a shape while still looking natural. He’s paired it with a long handlebar moustache, which has been twisted at the ends.

# 11 Keeping It Clean
A beard can look untidy when it is allowed to grow unchecked. Here we see an example of excellent beard grooming – keeping the hair in a neat shape and creating shaved lines on the face. In this picture the moustache is a little longer, just brushing over the top lip.
