Long and Pointy
Sporting this style results in people thinking you're masculine, mature, good-looking, self-confident, courageous, and non-conforming, according to a seminal study done by psychologist Robert J. Pellegrini. In addition, Pellegrini found that “the male beard communicates an heroic image of the independent, sturdy, and resourceful pioneer, ready, willing, and able to do manly things.” Sounds like a guy you know, right?
There’s no magic to growing a long beard, just time and patience. “It can take anywhere from six weeks to six months, depending on the rate of your facial hair growth,” says O’Malley. Regular application of a beard oil or beard moisturizer will help keep the hair healthy as it grows.
