Considered a good solid style that allows some freedom but little flamboyance, the full beard circle style is exactly as the name suggests, designed primarily to border around the mouth area when the mustache and beard are connected. Also known as the 'door knocker' , a moustache worn with a goatee that is not connected. While it can add length to a round face, it can also add weight if not properly cared for. Avoid heavier growth with regular trimmings.
Combining a simple mustache and goatee with a little round shaping to create the effect, the circle beard can be styled thin or thick, just provided the same basic shape is retained.
With celebrities such as Brad Pitt and Kanye West sporting the style, the Circle Beard gives the cool style to any mans face.
The goatee of a Circle Beard is a little fuller and should have just a hint of a round shape. This means this beard style doesn’t work so well for those with round faces – avoid it or risk looking like a seal balancing a ball on its chin.
How to grow a Circle Beard
Growing a circle bread is similar to the goatee and mustache that has been trimmed down and rounded. The circle beard length should be kept quite short at around 5mm, so grow out your beard and start shaving the sideburns and cheek area to get that circular vibe going.
