Well don’t worry; this blog is all about it and after reading this blog you would know different beard styles and facts that others don’t, so keep reading.

It’s better I talk about the beard type 1st before proceeding to various beard styles.

Beard hair is like any other hair on your body, but how facial hair reacts to hormones makes all the difference. Hair growth in males is directly related to testosterone hormone. When a man’s body converts the testosterone hormone into a more powerful hormone known as dihydrotestosterone (DHT), beard hair growth gets stimulated. The amount of DHT you have in your reproductive system directly affects your beard and hair growth patterns.

Patchy Beard: As the name suggests, facial hair doesn’t grow uniformly over the required area. Some parts have good hair growth while others have hairless patches. If you are looking to blame someone for your patchy beard, here are the causes: Genetics, Alopecia Areata, Hormone Imbalance (lower levels of DHT., Stress, Diet, Lack of Exercise etc. Out of these Alopecia Areata or Spot-Bladness is found is very less percentage of the population, SO, I think you should look for other common causes to blame.

Curly Beard: This type of beard doesn’t get much love while the guys who have this kind of beard likes to keep it stubble before it turns into a bushy one. If you are looking for a reason why your beard is curly, trace you research to your hair follicles. The shape of the follicle pattern mixed with the shape of the hair is the reason for curly hairs on your skull or face or any other part of the body. Wavy Beard is another beard type which is a variation of a curly pattern

Straight Beard: This is the ideal beard which everyone desires. For those who have naturally straight beard consider it a gift from God, while others use different techniques to get their beard straight in shape.
