So you´ve finally grown your beard in the length you prefer. Congratulations! Or maybe it´s still not quite how you want it to be.. However in both cases, the hair present on the top of your head still needs to match with your beard! Except if you’re rocking the very short or bald look which always looks fresh and clean. For the gentlemen with longer hair, matching their beard with their hairstyle could be a somewhat difficult subject, so we’ve gathered 3 trending hairstyles of 2016 to match your beard with!
1. Undercut and Beard
Summer is coming, so this is an ideal hairstyle to match your beard. This look features shorter length on the sides as compared to the top, giving more emphasize to your beard and some ventilation for your head during the hot summer days.
