Beards are the mark of manhood – they distinguish the boys from the men and for that reason, they have become synonymous with sexy. A beard takes patience and attention to grow and maintain and these are both desirable traits.
When we see a man with a well-maintained beard we immediately know that he cares about his appearance. We know that he is able to look after himself and always put his best foot forward. So what makes a beard sexy then? Well, it’s a combination of elements.
Firstly a beard should always look well maintained so this means having all the correct tools and products to keep it in tip-top shape. Secondly, it needs to have an appealing style – have a look at some of these examples.

The time and effort that you take to care for your beard is reflected in your appearance and there’s nothing quite as appealing as a person who takes pride in themselves.
