Whether they’re trying to grow it or trying to tame it, men are in a constant battle with facial hair. With “no shave November” almost at an end, I’ve seen a range between full beards and those who rebelled and decided to sport stubble or scruff. How a man wears (or doesn’t wear) facial hair affects his overall appearance while reflecting a hint of his personality.
This Fashionisto opts for a slight stubble, which he complements with a polished, deep part. The subtle facial hair still exudes a sense of masculinity minus the maintenance of a full beard. He wears a graphic T-shirt paired with camo cargo shorts, an unexpected yet playful combo which gives off a casual, laidback vibe. His sophisticated watch juxtaposes with his braided, chocolate brown leather bracelet complementing his overall look. With a pair of high-top, black sneakers to finish his outfit, this Fashionisto successfully creates an ensemble by combining both playful and masculine elements.
According to Esquire, the Philips Norelco stubble trimmer results in the ideal five o’clock shadow look, perfect for achieving this Fashionisto’s look. Fashionistos, how you decide to grow (or shave) your facial adds to your overall style. For a clean, sophisticated look, opt for no facial hair by using a razor with at least four blades for a close shave. If you’re desired look is more rugged and carefree, grow out your stubble so you have some scruff. Want to appear more intellectual? The stereotypical goatee is your go-to. From mustaches to beards the possibilities are endless in terms of how you sport your facial hair. Treat your razor as a paintbrush and your face as a canvas and start creating.
