Hail, fellow bearded chaps! I worked with my talented artist to come up with a collection of all the facial hair styles known to man. If you like it, please share with your bearded friends.
The following are some of the more conventional, accepted beard styles. Many of these facial hair styles are accepted by the World Beard & Mustache Championships as facial hair categories. If your goal is to enter one of these contests, use the guide below to see which one suits your beard type best. My facial hair style is the Garibaldi, as my beard tends to grow that shape naturally.

Mustaches are also a category in most facial hair competitions. Below is a collection of some of the more popular mustache categories listed in many competitions. Your face will tend to grow one or more of these styles naturally. For me, my mustache grows very thick near the nostrils, but thins out towards the lips. This means that I can pull off the Toothbrush or the Handlebar, but would have a hard time growing a Walrus or Lampshade.
Goatees are a very popular facial hair style, though not all goatee styles are regarded in championships. Below is a collection of the most common, and even some obscure, goatee styles. The Rap Industry Standard, for example, is very popular, but it never appears in facial hair competitions.
Finally, I’ll round this survey off by sharing some more unconventional beard styles. Some of them, like the Imperial Mustache and the Fu Manchu, exist in facial hair championships. You can grow most of these, but they will be regarded under other categories.
