No guide to facial hair styles would be complete without the beardstache. Yes, it’s just what it says it is – a combination beard and mustache, and it’s gained popularity over the past couple of years.
While the beardstache has its critics – including one who said it was the facial hair version of the mullet – it’s not a bad look. It offers a full mustache and a beard that’s more closely resembles heavy stubble than anything else.
For some men, the beardstache is a way to keep from being “trapped” by a particular beard or mustache style in that it offers a best-of-both-worlds solution. It’s also a good option for the summer months, when a heavy beard may become a bit warm.
The beardstache is a fun facial hair style that can be worn by any guy. It’s perfect for those who want to grow a beard but are forced to keep it trimmed for work or other reasons.
The beardstache is a hybrid of the mustache and goatee styles, which makes it very versatile – you can wear it long or short, thick or thin. And because of its versatility, this look can also be considered a “gateway beard” as you grow out your facial hair over time.
This facial hair style is not only trendy right now, but it’s also incredibly easy to grow and maintain with the right tools and techniques. If you’re looking to get in on the action by growing your own beardstache, then follow along!
What the Beardstache Says About You
Sporting a beardstache says that you’re a bit tired of convention and all the recent trends.
You don’t hate the trends, by any means, but you want to step away from them a bit and try something new that’s not overly radical. You’re confident and have a good sense of style and taste.

How to Create the Beardstache
There’s some effort involved when creating the beardstache because you’ll be striving to keep a good contrast between the length of your beard and mustache (which will be thick and full).
In the classic beardstache look, you’ll want to keep your cheeks covered in a heavy stubble while letting your mustache droop down along the corners of your mouth in the style of a horseshoe mustache (but with the thickness of a walrus mustache).
Do not let the ends of your mustache extend beyond your jawline, however.
To keep the stubble looking its best, we strongly advise getting a quality stubble trimmer and using it on a regular basis.
