Full Answer

A man who chooses to wear a beard usually keeps it trimmed in a specific style. Beard styles have names such as "goatee," "mutton chops" and "chin strip."

The type of beard a man has sometimes depends on the amount of hair he can grow and the shape of his face. Not every man can successfully grow a full beard, and for those men, goatees and soul patches are two alternative options. Those who are older or who can easily grow a full beard may choose to have mutton chops or a chin curtain.

    How can you thicken your beard?

    A:

    To thicken a beard, allow the beard to grow on its own for up to 30 days in order for the hair cycles to coincide with each other. Continuing to trim or shave the beard area does not cause hair to grow in thicker and can instead keep the beard thin.
