Slick hairstyles have always been a huge trend in male grooming for many reasons, notably because they keep everything under control and work with any haircut. The question is, do they look better with or without a beard?

Slick hair with a beard

If you have a beard or are in the process of growing one, you'll need a hairstyle that can help show it off without becoming the center of attention. A tidy, sleek hairstyle is perfect because the contrasting texture keeps things interesting without overshadowing that all-important facial topiary.

Styling tip
Apply Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Extreme Style Gel, then create a side part and comb the hair through for a smooth, polished look. Just make sure you don't apply too much gel, otherwise you may end up with an unintentional caught-in-the-rain look (which is rarely as sexy as it sounds).

Slick hair without a beard

Without a beard, there's more room to play around with texture and volume, should you wish to do so. There are plenty of different styling options, from wet-look waves to slick and messy, it's totally up to you.

Styling tip
To boost volume, massage the roots with your fingertips after applying the gel, then gently shape your style with your hands or a comb before it sets.

What do you think? Which look gets your vote?
