If you have a strong chin

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.
