When choosing any beard or hairstyle, you want to take into account your physical attributes.

Oval faces are longer than they are wide with a soft curving jawline.

If you have an oval face, the goal of your beard is to help add angularity to your jawline. You can achieve this by using clean lines and sharp, angular corners.

Pro tips to consider

  • Keep the neck and cheek lines clean, with square and clean corners. These clean lines will add angularity and help strengthen your jawline.
  • Keep your beard trimmed regularly, bushier or more natural beards will round your face out as they blur the edges of your natural jawline
  • Go for a high and tight haircut that can help complement your beard style. The combination of the two helps add a lot of angularity to your face shape.
