Different beard styles and how to trim them

  We like to think about the men’s mustache styles a family tree with three fundamental branches speaks of: full facial hair, incomplete facial hair, and mustache.  There’s also a fourth branch that we’ll cover in one piece, but how about we see essential branches first and a part of their various facial beard styles .


  Generally known as stubble facial beard, beard is a style anyone can wear.  It makes no difference if your facial hair is skeletal or incredibly thick.  What it does is give it a touch of surface and a touch of roughness.  You’ll get this style by letting your facial hair develop for a day or three, and then choosing whether you need to shave everything or use a trimmer to keep it short.  In the event that you need to get a more “Money Street” look with your stubble, at that point you will have to trim the cheek lines and neck areas. If you need more insight on how to properly groom your facial hair, you can learn more about beard care for black men in this epic post.  For a scruffy look, just let those territories develop more normally.  However, you will generally discover scraping / stubble under short facial hairstyles.


  Men who can normally grow fuller facial hair are an acceptable possibility to show off the look of corporate whiskers.  Allow approximately fourteen days to two months to develop to the length of corporate facial hair.  It doesn’t need a ton of short hairs, so it will require a lot of maintenance, including cutting the cheek line and neck area for a perfect introduction.


  Nothing overly confusing about normal facial beard;  just let it develop, or let it develop as you cut and shape it.  Plus, this is a reality: The more you trim your facial hair and keep it in violin-like shape, the more it will develop.


  Current patterns can support shorter facial beard, the Yeard is a positive movement in reverse.  Just let your facial hair develop for a year, or more, while keeping it fully shaped and characterized.


The Amazing Versatility Of African American Hair

Internationally, a woman’s beauty and femininity is directly associated with her hair. Through many advertisements, we can see the standards that the world expects of women’s hair care, hair styles and length of hair. People are mostly fascinated with African American Hair Styles because of the versatility of the hair itself. Because of its ability to change from very curly, to dead straight or mildly curly, many find this amazing. What people don’t know is that in several African cultures, hair denotes much more.

It can distinguish a married from a single woman, or one who has just given birth from one who is in mourning. However as amazing as it appears when it’s dressed up with long braided attachments, or in sleek straight glamor, African American Hair can be very fragile at times. As with all hair types proper care is recommended at all times. This basically means essential vitamins and minerals that promote growth, oiling of scalps – or what is commonly referred to as Hot Oil treatments and refraining from inflicting damage by heat. Many African American Hair Styles revolve around way too much heat. Heat is applied by hairdressers in the form of relaxers, which are chemicals that actually burn the hair or by straightening iron devices. Because African American Hair tends to be porous, it is more vulnerable to damage than Caucasian or Asian hair.


Managing the attractive African American Hair Styles that the world seems so fascinated about may not be as simple as it looks. In fact it is hard work. Many African Americans are steeped in their roots and are not in accordance with the evolution that African American Hair Styles have gone through. They simply prefer to keep their hair as it was willed to be – as natural as possible.

There are several reasons why these new and trendy hair styles are all the rage. Perhaps the fascination with these hair styles lies in their diversity: the natural and extension braided styles are endless–ranging from close-cropped twists to individual braids, plaits, cornrows, locks, coils, micro-braids, waves and knots…and so many more.

Hairstyles Through History for Drawstring Ponytails

History and drawstring ponytails for black women

Hairstyles have always defined us. Every era can be recognized by a certain hairstyle. You can recognize the curls of a Roman as obviously different from the curls of a Cavalier – 1600 years apart. The jet black wig of a Pharaoh from the wigs of the 18th century. Underneath both was probably a shaven or bald head. Styles have varied greatly over the years. Both men and women have succumbed to the changing fashions. Way back in time in the Ancient World, Babylonian men dyed their long hair and beards black and used curling tongs while Persian men also curled their hair and beards and stained them red with henna.

In ancient Egypt, both men and women shaved their heads for coolness and wore heavy black wigs for ceremonial occasions. Men would also shave their faces and wear stiff false beards instead. One wonders why. Greek and Roman women used curling irons piling their hair high in curls and braids; their men wearing their hair short in halo styles sometimes again curled. Hairdressers during this and up until the middle of the 18th century were household slaves or in later years, servants, although men might have used the services of a public bathhouse or barbershop. Learn more about how to get the best looking style of weave with these drawstring ponytails.

Religion has always influenced the way hair is worn. Muslim women cover their hair when in public. Sikh men wear turbans, not being allowed to reveal their hair. In China, men would shave the front hair and grow the back long and braid it into a queue which they thought would be used to draw them up into Heaven.

Unusually, perhaps American Indians are the only race where both men and women have their hair in the same style. Worn in two plaits at the side.

In Europe in the Middle Ages men generally wore their hair neck length


in what became known as the Page Boy style while the Church encouraged modesty in women ordering married women to wear a veil to cover their hair, an injunction which brought about a large number of different designs in veils, wimples, caps, hoods, and kerchiefs. An unmarried girl could wear her hair loose but would have to cover it once she was married.

Hairstyles Date You – From Wigs to Afros

If you think about it, you can accurately date a picture of a historical character by the clothes they’re wearing, but if you only had the head to look at could you still date it? The answer is a definite yes; a hairstyle dates you so accurately. From the curls of the Greeks and Romans to the Afros of the 80s you can put each style in its historical place.

By the 17th century men’s hair was long, over the shoulders and worn loose, think Charles I often wearing a cap at night. Facial hair was a mustache and neatly trimmed pointed beard, named after the painter Van Dyck. Later in the century, more often than not the same style would be a full bottomed wig, think Charles II or a High Court Judge. Women at this time wore their hair flat on top with a centre parting, short fringe and curls around the sides and back.

In the 18th century men’s wigs became smaller and lighter in weight until left off altogether by the 1800s when many men grew their hair long which they wore in a stiffened queue. Women on the other hand, especially in Society led by the Duchess of Devonshire, Georgiana, wore fantastic wigs, often up to three feet high, decorated with ribbons, feathers, jewels, model ships, even a birdcage. Taking hours to put together, often attracting vermin as well, they must have been very difficult and heavy to wear, needing perfect balance and strong neck muscles!

The French Revolution brought about a revolution in hairstyles as well. It influenced hair styles with short Roman styles for both men and women. Women could choose between a short style a la Titus or a long and curled into Greek style knots and curls around the face.

Victorian women dressed their hair in sleek but elaborate chignons, plaits and curls while men’s hair became quick short and uncomplicated. Their facial hair, however, became more and more elaborate with Mutton Chop Whiskers, many different styles of mustache and great full beards.

The 20th century, though, has probably seen the greatest change in hairstyles from the Edwardian cottage loaf bun, through the Bob of the 20s to the Teddy Boy DAs and Beehives of the 60s, the long hair of the 70s, the Afros of the 80s which brings us to the anything goes styles of the late 20th and early 21st centuries.

Knowing Your 4C Hair Type – Curl Pattern Vs Hair Texture, What’s the Difference

If you care enough to do the research yourself, you will find that the market for this particular niche is very appealing to those who seek to make a profit. Of course, it’s because many of them know that women of color will spend all that we have on our hair. There is nothing wrong with making or spending money, but why spend endless amounts of money on products that are no good for your hair? Just because a product claims to be for natural, kinky, curly, frizzy hair; it may not be for your particular natural, kinky, curly, frizzy hair.

As I would sift through the sea of information on natural hair care, I kept saying to myself that something wasn’t right with all these questions asking: what’s your hair type, what’s your curl pattern? Once I figured out what my hair type/curl pattern (I think?) was, I learned later that my hair had many types and patterns, and they all ranged from a 3a to a 4C hair-. Then, I would seek products for those types/patterns and would never really get the results I desired. As I searched I still couldn’t figure out what was really wrong. Why wasn’t anything working?! I just knew that there was more to this mystery than curl patterns and hair types.

So, I decided to do a Google search on the difference between curl patterns and hair textures, not types and realized that my thinking was on the right track. The truth is a black woman and a white woman both can have the same curl pattern (e.g. a 3c pattern), but have completely different textures. Now, is this starting to make a little more sense? When I think of textures, I think of how something feels to the touch, to the taste, and even to the sight. Some textures are smooth and silky, while other textures are rigid and rough. Then, there’s this whole thing on porosity. I won’t go into detail about porosity, but just know that if you’re relaxed or dyed your hair (and haven’t chopped it off–sounds so drastic, doesn’t it?) then more than likely the porosity of your hair is high. The porosity of your hair determines how your hair may react to certain products because of its’ ability to absorb or emit any kind of substance

Please educate yourself. It’s not enough to take someone else’s word as bond. It’s OK to take advice from those who are passionate (like myself) about natural hair care, BUT many of us are NOT professionals. We can only stand in support of your decision to go natural and offer you our stories to help you get through your journey. It’s recommended that you seek the advice of a professional and arm yourself with knowledge. Finally, the most important thing you should do before you make any moves (at all) is to know the curl pattern, texture and the porosity of your hair. Based on this information, your own personal research, support from the natural hair care community, and the recommendations of a professional; you are now prepared to take on this journey!

To help you determine your hair properties: curl pattern/hair type, texture, density, and the porosity of your hair, make sure to check out the following link.

Remember some resources may use the words curl types/hair types and textures interchangeably, but texture is something different. It can be a little confusing. That’s why it’s so important to do your own research. Oh, and one last thing. Many sites have many different types of hair type charts. Some have so many sub-categories that you would wonder if they were just made up. I have not found one hair type chart from any site that impressed me enough to give you a clear understanding of what your hair type may be.
