Choosing the right hairstyle to go with a beard is important. You want something that complements your facial topiary without overshadowing it, so a little contrast is a good idea. That's where this short, slicked hairstyle comes in.

Why try it

Keeping the hair short in length means that a high-shine, slick finish doesn't overwhelm a beard, or look too slimy - provided you don't apply too much product. The sheen contrasts nicely with the matte fuzz of a 5 day beard, which keeps the look interesting and more than a little bit edgy.

If you have longer hair and don't want to chop it all off, you don't have to. You can always slick the lengths back into a bun or a clean, swept back style if you prefer.

How to style it

1/ High shine finish

For a slick, shiny finish like the one featured in the photo above, apply Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Clean Style Gel from front to back, then shape with your hands. Start with a really small amount, then add more gel as needed. When you're done, leave the gel to set, then you're good to go!

2/ Subtle sheen

For a more understated look, use a low-shine product like Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Hyper Fix Putty. Warm it in your hands first to emulsify it, then sweep it back through your hair. It won't set hard like gel, so you can reshape it if necessary throughout the day.
