Shave your Style launches Wikibeardia, the ultimate facial hair style guide.

David Glover details his five favourite Wikibeardia looks for the spring season – and shows you how to achieve them.

Shave your style launches Wikibeardia: Hollywood

Hollywood

This moustache works well on Brendan because he actually has a rather small mouth. The 'tache width over his upper lip actually adds proportion to his face shape. Adding a dirty shadow around the cheeks and lower lip helps define and strengthen his chin and jawline.

While allowing the moustache area to grow thick, keep the cheeks, chin and neck stubble length. Then shave from the top, cleaning the lines of your moustache that extend beyond the corners of your mouth. Trim and straighten the lines across the upper lip to complete the shape.

Hunter

While Derek’s beard looks very rugged and unkempt, it has actually been very carefully groomed to give that appearance. The whisker length on the cheeks and lack of definition under his jawline adds to the rough look, but the sculpting around the mouth and chin reveal attention to detail.

Allow a full beard to grow. Shave from above, cleaning the lines across the tops of your cheeks and the moustache. Then trim under the moustache, across the upper lip to the corners of the mouth. Shave under your bottom lip from the corner of the mouth to the centre and down towards the chin. Repeat on both sides, leaving a centre strip from the lip to the chin.

Shave your style launches Wikibeardia: Ducktail

Ducktail

This is a really cool look. It works because Reginald has sparse growth on his cheeks and around his mouth, but thicker growth around his jawline. As a result, he can grow a beard that is gradually longer in the chin area, where it all comes together in a ducktail point.

Allow a full beard to grow (this may take several weeks). Trim your cheeks and upper and lower lip to stubble length. Keeping your chin hair as the longest point, trim and graduate whiskers around the jawline, from short to long at the chin. Finally, shave under the jaw and across your neck.

Dirty Shave

Pavel has carefully sculpted the beard shape around his upper lip so as not to over accentuate his fuller lips and longer face shape. The overall effect is very striking and well constructed, giving him a controlled edge over his dreads.

First, allow a full beard to grow into several days of stubble. Shave the neckline under your jaw cleanly. Then shave a concave line on both sides if your upper lip running from the centre under your nose, to the corners of your mouth. Next, shave a clean line running from the edges of the moustache across the cheeks and along the inner edge of your side burns. Finally, shave around your mouth, across your upper and lower lip, leaving a centre strip from your bottom lip to your chin.

Hollywood Mo

This is the statement moustache, which has become very popular again with the evolution of hipster culture. Referencing masculine images from the late 1800's, a little moustache wax will be your best friend when keeping those extended corners tamed into perfect shape.

Grow a thick, full moustache and comb your whiskers out towards the corners of your mouth. Allow extended corners to grow long, while trimming any stray hairs, starting from the centre of your upper lip and working out towards the corners of your mouth. Shave cheeks, neck and chin cleanly, allowing only a little stubble to grow as desired. Use moustache wax to tame and twist your whiskers into a shape that extends outwards from the corners.
