Most of the people will opt for this style because of its ease of maintenance and achievement.

The process for going into this latest beard style is very easy and simple. You need to let your beard grow for 1 – 2 weeks time, as it depends from man to man. Some beards grow slow and some grow fast.
Meanwhile you can trim your beard from neck line and cheek line when required but not regularly. So, when your beard grows for about two weeks time, now is the time to get a trimmer and trim your beard.
Put your trimmer on 5 mm precision length setting, Milano ER-GB40-S is the recommended trimmer for this style. Use your trimmer daily or if not possible then on second day with the same length setting.
The length setting may vary for different people, so if the style does not sits perfectly on you, then you may try 4mm or 6 mm length setting for yourself.
Also remember to keep removing any extra hair from your cheeks above the cheek line or below neckline. It would be more preferable to trim your beard below chin with a length setting a little less from what you use for your entire beard, it will make you feel easy with this style and there won’t be any scratches either.
The tapered beard is gradually lessened or reducing towards one side.
You can go for any style like short stubble, medium stubble or long stubble etc. and then make it tapered. This one is the latest beard style for round face.
It is indeed a handsome style and looks good with almost every man, just that it is difficult to maintain. Because you have to keep your beard in different steps which makes the trimming process a bit difficult, but once you get used ti it then it will be easy for you.
After growing your beard for a while, like 4 – 6 weeks, you can go for this style. This style can be better applied to a beard with a length of at least 10 mm so you need to grow it for 4 or more weeks.
So get your trimmer, you are about to start trimming your beard and fade it out towards your sideburns.
The recommended trimmer for this style is ER-GB60-K
It has got 39 length settings and it is very precise. Besides, it has a wide blade so makes it easy to trim an entire portion together. With small blades you have to go up and down several times which effects the tapered style, so you need a wide blade trimmer.
Set your trimmer to the highest length setting which you want towards the end (chin). for example for 10 mm beard, start with 8 mm from the sides of your chin.
Start trimming at the exact area (normally jawline) from where you want to start the tapering process, trim one inch up.
Now lift the trimmer and go one inch up, set your trimmer to a shorter length setting then it was before and trim one inch up (in our example it was 8 mm so this time length setting will be 6 mm)
Again, lift the trimmer one inch up, bring it to a shorter length setting and trim one inch up. (this time 4 mm)
Repeat this process till you reach your side burns, and then do the same on the other side of your face with same length settings and same placement.

Teenage Beard Style
Teenage beard style is a mix of different length at different intervals.
This style comes under the short beard category and is an amazing one. It can be counted as one of the latest beard styles for teenagers because it does not require thick facial hair which most teenagers don’t have.
You can clearly see, it has different lengths at different intervals and the intervals are not same. Neither the intervals nor the length is same.
Achieving this beard style is slightly difficult. Because nothing is constant and it will always vary from person to person.
There is a general process for this beard style which will be elaborated but you will have to add up something from your side as well because you know your beard quite well than anyone else.
So, initially you need to grow your beard for about 2 – 3 weeks. After this, you have to trim all your beard exactly in same length setting so that all of your facial hair is in a level.
Once all your facial hair is in level, now you need to adjust your goatee from the sides using a little lower length setting than what you used for the entire beard.
Now, when you reach to the end of your jaw bone (the area below earlobe), set your trimmer to a more lower length setting and trim all the way up to sideburns. Make your sideburns a little thin using a trimmer as you can see above.
After you are done with the upper part, now its the part below the jaw bone (neck).
For this you can use the length setting of when you adjusted the goatee or the length setting when you trimmed from jaw bone end upwards to sideburns or even you can use a third length setting lower than these two and trim the beard on neck and below.
Since, you need to switch between different lengths time to time and also you have to be precise for which you need a trimmer with short blades, not wide at all. So Conair for Men I-Stubble is the most recommended trimmer for this style.
Smart Goatee is a well shaped goatee and perfectly outlined round the chin and internally as well.
It is different from full goatee in the length and outlines as well. You can use Goatee Saver for this as well.
Shaping a smart goatee may get a little difficult at times.
First off you trim all you beard near to the face (no too long) then remove all the hair from cheeks and sides using a Goatee Saver or by trimming downwards on both side where your mustache ends.
Now you have to perfectly outline the goatee and the mustache. Keep your mustache thin with this type of goatee as you can see in the picture.
After this, you have to trim inside the goatee at the soul patch. The space between your lower lip and chin where the beard starts should be extended, where as in full goatee this space is kept short or sometimes there is no space.
Since the trimming process is very precise so need to use Conair for Men I-Stubble.
Chin Strap Beard
Chin strap beard is elongated from right end of jaw bone to the left end of jaw bone.
This is a short beard style and also is one of the latest beard styles. This style looks more good with no mustache and a clear face. It is one of the beard styles for men with short hair.
You need to start trimming your beard starting from chin towards the end of jaw bone below earlobe. You also need to be careful so that the strap is not too wide i-e more above the jaw bone and also not too thin i-e more below the jaw bone.
After this, trim all the remaining hair besides the strap. You also need to trim your sideburns with a little lower length setting than the length setting used for the chin strap.
You will be needing a shaver as well after you are done with the strap because the remaining facial hair on cheeks and neck needs to be removed cleanly.
