Beard Styles for Every Type of Dad

Beard Styles for Every Type of Dad

By: Beau Vuillemot • Jun 9, 2022

If you’re a dad and having a beard-dentity problem, it’s not a coincidence you found us. Choose an identity that best suits you from the options below, and we’ll show you how to get and maintain it, too. Ready? Read on. 

Corporate Dad

If your weekday wear usually consists of a 3-piece suit, then the Corporate beard or   the Business beard is for you. The Corporate beard is a short full-face beard usually between ½” to 2” in length that is trimmed like a newly-mowed lawn with well- maintained edges. Because the messy look is corporate taboo, we suggest you get our Beard Grooming Kit to help maintain the look.

Musician Dad

If you hold a guitar or any musical instrument more than your kids or wife, you’re definitely a Musician Dad. For you, we recommend the Zappa Beard, named after the legendary musician Frank Zappa. This beard style is a misnomer as the look is basically a thick upper lip mustache with a wide soul patch. If you decide to style your facial hair this way, you can easily maintain it with our Beard Comb and Beard Brush Set

Sporty Dad

Vikings grew their beard to help themselves deal with the cold; it also added to their intimidating facade when they faced their foes. No wonder many professional athletes grow their beards like there’s no tomorrow. If you're a weekend athlete and would like to have the same edge, consider the Viking beard! If you just have stubble, a fully grown Viking Beard will take 5 to 6 months. To help quicken the beard-growing process, make sure you regularly wash and condition to remove any beard-growth blockers.

Artsy Dad

If you’re into the arts, specifically painting, whether as someone who is a master painter or someone who regularly visits museums, then the Van Dyke beard style should be considered. Named after the 17th-century Flemish painter Anthony Van Dyke, this style consists of growing a mustache and a goatee with all hair shaved on the cheeks. But if you want to be memorable, like a Renaissance masterpiece, you can do the variant of the Van Dyke, which includes a curled mustache.

Superhero Dad

If there is one beard style on almost every dad’s fantasy list, it’s the Mutton Chops. Doesn’t ring a bell? Think Wolverine. The beard style features long sideburns down to the jawline, cut at a wide angle, and is joined by a mustache. This beard style may be wild, but you don’t have to smell it, too. Try our Beard Balms, which come in a variety of tantalizing scents. 

Dad…of a Certain Age

There will come a time when the beard styles mentioned above will be awkward to wear. When that time comes, the Circle Beard is your beard-style savior! The mustache grows down into the beard surrounding the chin to get this style. Also, the beard doesn’t emerge along the jawline, and the chin can be seen. With your penny-pinching days behind you, it’s time to treat yourself with the facial care that you deserve with our Luxury Razor Shaving Kit
