A stronger chin can accentuate your face, and you can still wear a beard without hiding it. “If you want your strong chin to show, keep the sides of your beard shorter and leave the middle a bit longer, but short enough to highlight your strength,” says Genevieve Bochanty, who works in Brand Experience at The Art of Shaving. “If you want to mask it a bit, keep the sides a little longer and the chin hair long enough to smooth out the area.” Anu Cherucheril, Recruiting Resource Specialist for Great Clips, Inc. and former Great Clips stylist for 8 years, adds that balance is key. “If someone has a really strong chin, a stylist might recommend keeping the hair length on the cheeks longer than on the chin to balance the prominence out,” she says.

Larger noses lend themselves well to a lot of facial hairstyles, but growing out a mustache might not be the best choice. “If your nose is prominent, it may be wise to avoid a mustache, as it would frame the nose, accentuating its size,” says Cherucheril. “If your nose is on the wider side, a short beard would keep your head from looking too big. If your nose is long and lean, some length could help balance it.” Bochanty adds that the color of your beard also becomes important when you have a larger nose. “If you have a dark thick beard, this will highlight your nose as a prominent feature depending on its length,” she says.
