There are guys out there wearing the worst facial hair styles imaginable. Why? Same reason they wear stripes with plaid. They have no sense of style or taste. Clearly, they just don’t get it. They don’t realize they look…how can I put this delicately? Like flaming douchebags.

I’d like to say we’ve all been guilty of facial hair faux pas. I’d like to, but I can’t. Although many beardsmen have, at one time or another, worn some pretty bizarre beard styles, that doesn’t mean we all go that way. So, what are these weird-beard guys thinking?

That’s a question I’m not sure I can answer. But, at the very least I’m going to take a look at some of these strange beard styles and see if I see a pattern. A pattern I desperately want to avoid.

The Misplaced Soul Patch

Here’s a tip to guys who think it looks cool to wear a micro soul patch on the tip of their chin. It doesn’t. A soul patch belongs just under the lower lip. It sometimes reaches down to almost the tip of the chin, but then stops. Beardsmen, take note. I said ‘stops.’

The Beard as Abstract Art

Why do guys do this? Really. Why do some dudes treat their beard like it’s a blank canvas upon which they can draw out their bizarre facial fantasies? We have lots of questions about this phenomenon and damn few answers. Am I right?

The Neck Beard

The neck beard is another facial hair style that leaves me scratching my head. What in the name of beardos everywhere is this guy thinking? Maybe he’s not. Maybe he just wants attention. A cry for comments? If you see this dude, be sure to tell him how you feel about his neck hair. I hesitate to call this mess a beard.

Clearly, I’ve just scratched the surface of the worst facial hair styles. There are hundreds of weird-beard concoctions out there that deserve recognition. But, sadly, I must conclude our bad beard tour for today. 

If you can think of any other styles I may have missed, please let me know in the comments section below. If you enjoyed this post, don’t forget to share it with your friends.
