Facial hair trends 2017: The short beard

Justin Theroux

Long and medium beards continue to work great, but in the last couple of years there are many men who have started to bet on the short beard. It is a cooler option, so it is especially advisable for the summer.

If we made a beard scale in which the lowest step is shaved and the highest is the long beard, the type of facial hair that concerns us today would be on the third step, just above the three-day beard. Y a place below the average beard.

To keep the beard short, a beard trimmer and razor are necessary. Using it at least once a week, the first tool will help us trim the hair to the desired length. Graduate it to between 4 and 7 millimeters, depending on the density of your beard.

Use the razor to define your beard in the desired areas. The best are the cheeks and neck (just above the nut). The frequency should be higher, being the ideal every day.

You can continue applying a beard oil, although it is not as essential as when we wear a long beard. If your hygiene routine includes moisturizer both day and night, in general, can be enough with your usual after shave.

Key looks

Justin Theroux

Although in the last season of 'The Leftovers' he wears a thick beard, for real life, style icon Justin Theroux prefers something lighter. Perfectly defined on the upper lip, cheeks and neck, the actor opts for a uniform length, suitable for her angular features.

Seen at the premiere of 'Dunkirk' - impeccably dressed by Gucci -, Tom Hardy grows the hair on his chin longer than the rest. An advisable option for men with oval faces, but one that can be disastrous if you have a long face. In this case, a uniform beard or a slightly longer mustache is best.

Jonah Hill ('Supersalidos') has also switched to a short beard, signifying a very positive evolution over his previous facial hair choices. Other celebrities with this type of beard include David Beckham, Ryan Gosling, and Scott Disick.
