French Beard: How to Grow & 8 Trendy Styles to Copy

A French Beard, (also known as a French cut beard or a goatee) is a beard which just surrounds the mouth. It normally extends to the apex of the chin. Although there can be a little bit of facial hair in the other areas of the face, the French cut area should be the most prominent zone. Guys look really cool with this style of beard.

 

How to Grow A French Beard

It is really easy to grow a French beard. Start growing your facial hair in the same way that you would grow it if you were trying to produce a full beard. Once your beard has started to grow, you will have to use a razor to carefully shave the other areas of your face. Clean shave your cheeks and jawline so that they are free of hair. Only leave the section that surrounds your mouth. Continue to keep the rest of your facial hair trimmed.
