Perhaps the simplest concession to the trend for more facial hair is the all-around stubble. Low maintenance and high appeal are the key words for this purposely ungroomed style. It is a great way for men with strong growth of facial hair to get a break from shaving and still look great.
However, there is an art to wearing these stubbles right. They can turn into a full, heavy beard in no time and to keep the rough, rugged charm they need to be trimmed at a pleasant length, which should be short but long enough to make them soft. Zachary Quinto turns heads with his stubble look and uses it as a fresh contrast to his otherwise clean-cut appearance.
Are you made for stubbles? If you are an easygoing, casual rascal with much going on in his life who wants to look great without much effort, put down that shaving cream and let it grow.
Grown-out Stubble
A stage between the prickly charm of stubble and a full beard is this scruffy version sported by Ryan Gosling. Longer hair, kept in neat contours but covering the chin and the sides while being connected to a handsome mustache. It is the look of the adventurer who can conquer the jungles of the world but also is at home in the city and known for his cultured sense of style.

This look can easily look sloppy and neglected, so it is important not to let it run wild, but to maintain a clear outline and to make sure to wear some sharp clothes for balance.
Is a medium beard the right choice for you? You know you're attractive and don't need to prove it. With your hectic schedule you need a low-maintenance look that, as a bonus, protects your delicate face from the cold winds of winter and of life.
Full Beard
A confident Jake Gyllenhaal shows his confidence and maturity with a full face of hair, a full beard that is. Soft to the touch and covering almost half of the face, a full beard is the choice of the grown-up, masculine, and self-assured male.
No longer left solely to professors, actors, and pipe-smoking chess players, the full beard is now a fashion statement for any man looking for new ways to express himself.
