No joke. Knowing what kind of hair you have will dictate a lot, and facial hair is its own category. Facial hair tends to grow in a bit thicker and usually stays flatter than the hair on your head. Even if you have fine head hair, it is almost always more coarse on your face. Nothing new here, but being able to identify your hair type will help you determine how to care for your beard. You’ll discover the products that will work best and the styles that will look best on you.

Straight

It will probably be the most responsive to trimming and small styling touches and is least likely to become unruly, even in the harshest weather or environment. The only real downside is that it tends to lay flat, which means if you’re going for a full, robust face-frame, or a mountain man style, it can be tough to build out. Wax may be a better choice to get a thicker, fuller look. And you’ll want to choose a beard oil that’s light and moisturizing, without weighing the hair down.
